About Us

Teeming Vacation Rentals was founded in 2013 by Jeff and Gina Paglialonga. Although this company is a relatively new startup, Jeff and Gina’s partnership is not. They were both raised in central Florida with fathers working at the Kennedy Space Center and have been good friends since middle school. Friendship blossomed into romance their final year of high school ~ a love story that continues to unfold and flourish today (high school sweethearts, fellow UF graduates, married 30+ years with four children).

He has consulted with both Allstate Corporate and individual agencies; streamlining processes, increasing production, incorporating inventive marketing, maximizing potential revenue, and stressing customer service. He also was a general contractor for 5 years and built our own home. He loves building (be it businesses or homes); he loves refining; he loves opportunities even when disguised as seeming impossibilities. Soon after having their fourth child (4 in 4 years), Gina “retired” from her actuarial position to assist Jeff and raise their lively bunch. With a recent house full of teenagers, Gina likewise knows a thing or two about particular “customers”.
JG archesPooling very different skill sets but very common passions, we make perfect partners. One of those passions is travel, with our love of traveling spanning decades much like our romance. We love to enjoy new places & cultures (visiting 6 out of the 7 continents), share thrilling adventures, learn about other places & people, expand our view of the world, and make lasting memories. Early on in our marriage & family, we decided one of the best gifts we could give each other and our 4 children is to make time to get away and make memories. As Saint Augustine maintained, “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”

In 2004, we purchased our first beachfront condo as both a family retreat and investment property. It didn’t take long for us to realize that we were better equipped to manage our property than the on-site office. Applying our past work experiences, years of travel, and a high standard of excellence; we were soon doubling our previous rental income. After poor experiences with both the complex office, as well as local real estate offices and success managing our own unit, the decision was made to start a vacation rental property management business. Jeff cofounded a successful management company in 2008 and sold it after 5 years of ownership, paving the way for the birth of TeemingVR.

Since its inception in spring 2013, this full service vacation rental management company has grown from 0 to over 225 properties, with multiple different market areas. Although this is a relatively new company, as you can see, the owners are not new to vacation rentals. With founders currently owning 3 vacation properties themselves, TeemingVR has a unique “By Owners for Owners” perspective. Furthermore, given this twosome’s avid travels also leads to a “By Travelers for Travelers” viewpoint. This mindset, along with strong internet marketing, cutting edge technology, and hands-on rental management (be it adjusting rates or updating a property’s decor), has allowed TeemingVR to maximize owner’s rental revenue (sometimes doubling or even tripling it from previous years).

In TeemingVR’s short history, we have achieved phenomenal results for our owners (booking out the slow season and demanding higher rates in peak times). Not only have we grown the company to roughly 225 properties, but have accommodated more than 6,100 guest reservations and done over $8.1 million in total sales. We are truly blessed, loving what we do and loving doing it together! We have built our home on faith, family, and fun; and strive to build this company, TeemingVR, on the same. Henry Ford observed, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.”

Our aim in our company is to build long-term relationships with both guests and property owners. We are committed to excellence, continually assessing our processes and refining our strategies. As avid travelers and vacation property owners, we understand the concerns of both guests and owners. We get it. Years of travel with a few mishaps convinced us of the importance of actually seeing the exact facilities before booking our vacation and the value of knowing a little about the location before arriving. Initiating the phrase ~ Look, Book, Know, GO!TM

Godspeed and safe travels!

Jeff & Gina Paglialonga
