Find Your Next Vacation Rental Home With Home Away Today! A vacation rental is a term used by the travel industry that refers to renting a furnished apartment, condo or home for a temporary basis. Rentals can range from an inexpensive one bedroom economy apartment to a lavish 6 bedroom home on a golf course overlooking the ocean.

These vacation rental properties are generally owned by individuals who generate income by renting while they're not being used. Other properties may be owned by management companies and run more like a hotel. Either way, a vacation rental property is an excellent way to save costs and have more privacy. Vacation rental properties are also great for holding a large group of family or friends in a quaint, relaxed setting.

DIRECT VACATION RENTALS

Rental Locations:

Global

Direct Vacation Rentals is another vacation rental website. We immediately felt it lacked the professionalism and excitement of those higher ranked. Rental listings are located from around the world but with limited selection in many areas.

When arriving at Direct Vacation Rentals you'll notice a lot of pictures, a map and some popular vacation destinations. It took us longer at Direct Vacation Rentals to get our baring and figure out how to navigate the site. When we clicked on the map we found that some countries would bring up rental results but when we clicked on the US not all states had listings and some brought up properties from all over the globe.

We decided the map wasn't getting us where we needed and moved on to the advanced search button we were excited to find. We typed in a few key destinations and again noticed a very limited number of properties available for rent. We also noticed that several properties were missing pictures and several didn't list their prices. We became a little frustrated at that point having to inquire about something so simple as the weekly rent. A positive to the site is the advanced search functionality, once we found it. We did like choosing our budget range, property type, bedrooms, internet, pool and more.

All in all, Direct Vacation Rentals has the potential for a good vacation rental site but lacked rental listings and a clean clear website to compare to those higher ranked.

Continued from above

Many owners are making their homes available for rent through vacation rental websites that allow vacationers the opportunity to see pictures and learn about the property, location, and dates available. You may also contact the property owner through the website and discuss the terms of the agreement and payment arrangements.

However, not all vacation rental websites are the same. Using one with the specific qualities you want will save you lots of time and energy. Some of the important attributes you should look for before finding your next vacation rental property include:

  • Search. How easy is it to search vacation rental properties and find exactly what you're looking for?
  • Properties. How broad is the listing of vacation rental properties? For example, if you're looking to stay in Fort Myers Beach will you have 2 or 25 homes to choose from?
  • Locations. Where are the vacation rental properties located? If a website has limited listings in certain regions, knowing that in advance will you save time and frustration.
