Vacationrentals411.com is the best free site out there.
I do not know the site owners, have no interest, etc.
I have had a listing with Vacation Rentals411 for a few years now. I have
inquiries and some bookings from them. They often
outrank A1 and
cyberrentals for referrals and sometimes even vrbo.
About a year ago I decided to try the bid thing to move
up. I deposited $25 via PayPal and it has lasted what
as soon as I did this I got a lot more views and
inquiries, so it did
pay off, but with or without it, I received inquiries
VacationRentals411 gives you a free listing with up to 9 photos. They
link to your personal web site. Updating info is easy.
pages are easy to navigate and understand. I can go in
and get a
complete list of every inquiry I have ever had through
them. My only
complaint is that my photos are not clean and clear
tried a few times to replace them but the problem
persists. I don't
know if it originates on my end or on theirs.
I highly recommend this listing service. How can you
beat free AND
results? If anyone out there isn't listing on this free
check it out.

you pay extra for more info/calendar.

|I signed up with VacationRentals411 in August – no inquiries yet.
I will say that our Vacation Rental is in a more remote area so this
is not too uncommon with Vacation Rental sites for me.
I did deposit $25 so I don’t know if this is why I have
calendar and counter functionality. VacationRentals411 are in the
middle of the pack in terms of hits on my ad. I did use
the bidding function and I currently pay .01 per click
to be the top listing (out of 11) in my area. They do
not allow you to link to other calendars, which means
another calendar to keep updated.
|I have a listing with VacationRentals411 with no inquiries. I hope
I get some soon :)
|I can tell you I have been happy with our results on
|I guess it would depend upon the location you are
advertising but we get a lot of responses in winter and
not many for summer from VacationRentals411
|Do a quick search for “your location vacation
rentals” if vacationrentals411 shows up in the top 10
for Google, I highly recommend bidding to be in the top
3 ads placed for your area at vacationrentals411. Within
a week or 2 of doing this, my inquiries from them have
shot up, and I received my first booking, at a fraction
of the cost of many other sites. Like any search based
listing, the first few results get more traffic. I also
like how they allow me to run special offers via their
calendar, though I wish the offers showed up more
obviously. Much more owner friendly way to “pay for
positioning” than vrbo!
|VacationRentals411 is not only easy to
"set-up" your posting it's easy to maintain as well. It
ranks well as an intutive site, and unlike many of the
vacation sites-- their availability calendar is
prominently displayed and therefore used by visitors.
While it took awhile for the detailed views of my
property to build, the wait was worth it. Now I recieve
as many inquiries for this site as I do for
vacationrentals.com. And I just booked my first full
week. This site is EXCELLENT. (Owner in Destin, Florida)
|VacationRentals411.com is one of the first free
sites we posted on. The only sites we have paid for are
vacationrentals.com and greatfamilyvacations.
Vacations411.com is highly intuitive for both owners and
for renters. At first the page views trinkled in slowly
-- but all of a sudden we are getting inquiries several
times a week -- typically for week stays. And we just
had our first booking. We would have had more from this
site, but we didn't have availability. We haven't
participated in the "bidding" process but will do this
later on. It's easy to maintain the site -- and they
have a great calendar that is eye catching. It's easy to
view their metrics as well...highly recommend this site.

|Got a great result with VacationRentals411, a
2 month booking from the free listing. I love the lay
out of the web site and ease of use, unlike VRBO
which I think looks messy but I may try them next and
see what happens.
