Privatized Housing
At MacDill, military family housing is privatized. Harbor Bay owns the family housing and is responsible for maintaining, repairing, constructing and managing the community. In addition to your option to purchase and rent housing in the local community, you now may choose to live in privatized housing by signing a tenant lease agreement with Harbor Bay.

For comprehensive information about the privatized housing community at MacDill, go to Harbor Bay at MacDill AFB. The website provides information you need about the homes and amenities available in the privatized housing community.

Applying for Privatized Housing
Contact the HMO as soon as you know you are moving to MacDill. The government housing team will provide you the latest information about privatized housing and details about the application process. The HMO will also update you on any base specific policies regarding residing in privatized housing.

­- Welcome Center
­- 24-hour fitness center

­­- Running trails
­­- Playgrounds
­­- Golf

As a resident of privatized housing, contact the Property Management Office to obtain more specific information on the services available at your location.

Paying Rent for Privatized Housing
Similar to living in the local community, you will sign a tenant lease agreement, typically for a one-year term. Your lease includes a military clause and a lease termination clause. You pay your monthly rent by authorizing an allotment of your BAH that is paid directly to the Property Manager. If your move occurs prior to the allotment start date, then you will need to pay the pro-rated rent directly to the Property Manager. The Tenant Lease Agreement spells out all relevant rent payment terms and conditions.

Gas and Electric Utilities
At this location, homes have an electric meter and are currently under live utility billing. Units are grouped together based on their size and construction and a seasonally adjusted electrical utility allowance is established. A few units have gas appliances and the cost is paid by the Property Management Office. For more information about your utilities contact the Property Management Office.

Personal Property Insurance
You need to obtain legal liability and personal property insurance for your possessions and should choose the options and amounts that best fit your needs and lifestyle.

Before purchasing your insurance, please consult the Property Management Office for more information about coverage.
