Renting a vacation rental home is a very personal matter. It’s a model that concentrates on the experience of individuals and families. The goal is the renters have a good experience and for the homeowners to provide as much hospitality possible.
RICHMOND, VA, October 01, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — While the last year has been very challenging for everyone, Vacation Rental Homeowners and Managers used tremendous creativity to accommodate their renters and sustain their businesses. One of the things they did was diversify where they listed their Vacation Rentals.
Virginia & West Virginia Vacation Rentals (VAvacationrentals.com) became a popular choice due to its “No Booking Fees” and “No Homeowner Commissions” policies.
“Just last week, a Property Manager called and told me she was listing with us,” said Bunnie Riedel, President of Virginia & West Virginia Vacation Rentals. “Her exact words were she was ‘so done’ with Airbnb.”
As the popularity of Vacation Rentals went up due to the pandemic, Vacation Rental Homeowners & Property managers found themselves subject to policies that weren’t conducive to accommodating the constantly changing landscape of the national emergency. The large online vacation rental companies arbitrarily amended policies, held back payments, penalized homeowners and property managers, and cancelled rentals without advising the owners and managers.
“There were definitely some horror stories this last year,” said Riedel. “A lot of the things they did really didn’t make sense. And while there were different local and state policies regarding the pandemic, the Big Guys tried a one-size-fits-all approach and that did not work.”
Virginia & West Virginia Vacation Rentals is an independent “Book Direct” listing site. It does not charge homeowners a commission on rents, nor does it charge renters a “booking fee.” The business is simply a yearly subscription for the homeowners. All inquiries come directly to the homeowners via email or phone calls. The homeowners and property managers determine their policies which gives them the flexibility needed to accommodate the renters. The renters pay the homeowners and property managers direct which cuts out the “middle man” model the big sites use.
“No money goes through my site, it goes directly to the homeowners and property managers, so there aren’t hold-backs or commissions,” said Riedel.
“My site gives back the freedom the Big Guys took away when they consolidated as multi-national corporations,” said Riedel. “I’ve brought back the personal business model to homeowners and property managers. Renting a vacation rental home is a very personal matter. It’s a hospitality model that concentrates on the experience of individuals and families. The goal is for the renters to have a good experience and for the homeowners to provide as much hospitality as possible. The owners take great pride in what they offer and it thrills them when guests have a good vacation.”
