Rental real estate is, by definition, a passive activity. Not so much for vacation rentals, so if your average rental is less than 7 days, you may be needing to file a schedule c instead of e. No documentation for this at my fingertips, but a vacation rental owner board I frequent has been reporting increasing IRS audits that determine they need to file schedule C, with the +/- 7 day line in the sand being one of the determining factors. There are others.You may very well be able to deduct the loss against ordinary income. Talk with a tax pro who is familiar with this type of investment. This book is also a good start, but he insists you can file schedule E: http://www.amazon.com/Every-Landlords-Tax-Deduction-Guide/dp...
