Meet Successful VacayHome Platform Users

It’s been a real pleasure working with the VacayHome Connect team. We’ve worked with three of your competitors over the last year with unsatisfactory results. You guys understand the distribution business and our business. You understand the unique characteristics of the channels and you understand how we do business. You figure out the optimal way to make our distribution work. Your competitors just tried to back us into a corner and tell us how we had to do things.

Sara Eubank

Canyon Services, Salt Lake City
I tried several distribution management solutions for Booking.com before engaging with VacayHome Connect. VacayHome Connect is heads and shoulders above the rest. From their initial on-boarding questions, I knew VacayHome Connect had a much better grasp of managing the Booking.com complexity. If you want to be successful on Booking.com, I would recommend VacayHome Connect over everyone else.

Steve Milo

Founder at Vacation Rental Pros
VacayHome Connect is my channel manager of choice. After only a couple of months working together, VacayHome Connect is already generating more reservations for me each week than anyone in the space has been able to. VacayHome Connect has an experienced team that really understands online distribution. Their account management team is probably the best in the industry. They pay attention to details that are important and frankly, as a full-service provider they help take work off my plate so I can focus on day to day operations. Additionally, VacayHome Connect processes payments for me, removing the headache of dealing with reservation issues associated with credit card declines. If you are a professional vacation rental manager that wants results, and lots of attention from a team that cares, then VacayHome Connect is a distribution partner you can trust.

Working with Myles Snyderman and others at VacayHome Connect/HomeAway has been very refreshing for me.Their professionalism, their amazing attention-to-detail is something I haven’t seen in a long time.Even if we are a small account, we never feel like one, and I look forward to a long partnership with them.
