I would recommend going to stay in one and pinching ideas. I've stayed in some better than others. Try and get a 5 star one.

firstly you need to check your lease and make sure you are allowed to do this.

you also need to get savvy with the tax rules.

Key safes are very easy to break into so best avoided - a coded entry pad is much safer.

For key exchange, suggest web search for 'key exchange service for hosts'. These are generally local shops where the keys are deposited and collected from.

Also suggest, use security lock barrels with restricted keys that prevent spare / duplicate keys being made and then subsequently mis-used to access your property.
