ReserveMyHome – A stong and compelling case for the vacation rentals website award.

The ReserveMyHome vacaiton rentals website is the “All-in-One” listing and booking site.



Here I will describe why this Lake Tahoe, Nevada based website and company’s business model sets itself apart from the competition in the vacation rental industry. A measure of hundreds of online vacation rentals websites sites were used in this comparison over a two year period.

The fear of losing a booking is a traditional stress for owners. The loss of two bookings per month at $300 per night with a three-night stay amounts to a $21,600.00 annual loss. ReserveMyHome has changed that, without risk to owners.

A website in the vacation rentals space must do a minimum of three things to enable travelers to make an online reservation with confidence:

1. Be the perfect storefront for each rental home, attracting renters to explore it further; and

2. Provide the traveler with comprehensive information they need to know so they can best identify what they get with their purchase.

3. Allow travelers and owners to view travel guides and post useful booking and travel content, tips and advice.

In addition to the above, a winning vacation rentals website that is both innovative by way of design and provides a feature set should allow a renter to easily book the verified vacation rental online in minutes.

Following those two things, travelers need an easy-to-use feature set which allows them to search for and find fitting rentals, send inquiries and book their vacation rental lodging easily and without worry. In addition to any brand familiarity provided by the virtual store front, the site must instill trust by way of a verification process for each of the rentals listed on the site to help prevent scams that are prevalent in this marketplace.

Owners of vacation rentals need an easy-to-use tool set to list their vacation properties, share information on the “Vacation Rentals for Family Vacations Blog,” and facilitate the booking process on the rentals site. ReserveMyHome encourages property managers of vacation rentals to simply copy and post a direct link back to their unique ReserveMyHome viewing and booking page from wherever they are promoting their properties – taking travelers seamlessly from exploring to booking.

You could say ReserveMyHome was built for those who want more exposure and bookings without the hassle. The live reservation agents are there to assist travelers with general questions and can usually handle most requests quickly. Travelers like this. Best of all, the ReserveMyHome model is performance based so there is no charge to list rentals on the site and a small commission is subtracted from the nightly rate for all successful bookings on the website.

There are very few websites today that offer all of these innovative components (including a $3,000.00 coverage to the home in lieu of a security deposit and travel insurance) for travelers and owners alike. However, these are all key features for travelers and owners of vacation rentals that are integrated into the ReserveMyHome super-site making it a leader in the vacation rentals and booking marketplace and should be considered at the forefront in the online vacation rental and booking space.

Beyond a typical or the standard rentals site or “billboard” rentals site ReserveMyHome offers instant bookings on most of their rentals. To put this in perspective they have done what the hotel industry has been doing for years but on a more complex level by offering each home’s individual location, features, pictures, amenities, availability and pricing and the ability to book it and go.

At the time of booking on the site, a traveler can easily enter their arrival and departure dates, select a damage insurance waiver vs. a hefty deposit and pay with a credit card. Almost instantly the traveler receives the following:

1. Confirmation of payment and dates for their selected vacation period

2. A rental contract

3. Additional paid amenities associated with the booking

Seven days prior to their arrival a second email is automatically sent with the following information:

1. Clear and detailed driving directions to the vacation rental.

2. Entry instructions for access to the home

3. The owner or property managers contact information for specific last minute details or in the event of an emergency.

All relative information booking information is then shared in real time between the (parties) property manager of the vacation rental and traveler. Furthermore, the property manager saves money in advertising, employee wages and support as ReserveMyHome remits payment timely and directly.

At anytime a renter can log in to their own unique account to view all of their booking details. Upon arrival back home, the traveler also receives an email with a welcome back greeting that allows the traveler to post a review of their vacation rental and stay or post a review in the the “vacation rentals community” known as the Lodge.

This vacation rentals website, built and maintained by ReserveMyHome, LLC, simply takes virtual vacation rentals website listings directly to confirmed bookings: a level well beyond the scope of most in this competitive marketplace.

Finally, as of this writing it has been reported that state of the art search and mapping functionality on the site is set to be integrated in early May 2010.

    Last summer I rented a condo for a week in California. Everything went well. So well, in fact, that I was going to stay there again this summer. I had the owner use my last year’s deposit to hold it for this year, and I would be charged the remainder in June, one month before the trip. (I have all of this agreement in writing in emails to the owner.)
