Why a Holiday Home?

Spend less, travel more

Priced between 50 and 80 percent less per square meter than the average hotel room in popular destinations, holiday rentals offer real value.

Room to relax

Say goodbye to the 30 sq.m. hotel room. Our average holiday rental is 171 sq.m.


More privacy

No hotel staff to disturb you, and plenty of private space for spending time with the family.

Kitchen's always open

Dine in with the kids or dine out on the town. Free yourself from vending machines and expensive room service.

Bring the family dog

Many holiday rentals are pet friendly and offer dog beds, dog runs, and more so your best friend will feel right at home.

Four Easy Rental Steps

1. Search rentals & contact owners or managers

View property details and fill out the availability request form for the properties you like. We recommend checking on availability at multiple properties.

2. Secure booking

Confirm dates with owner or manager, who’ll likely request a deposit to hold your spot.


3. Get it in writing

Get a written agreement from them with details such as arrival/departure, payments, and policies.

4. Send final payment

Owners/Managers generally expect full payment prior to arrival. Check your agreement for more details, and available payment methods.

Traveller Testimonial

Just discovered your website. Love that it lets you know if you have already enquired and your map is more informative than others. It actually gives you a distance guide! Yay! Well done. Wish I had found you sooner. Would have saved a lot of time.
