24 high-resolution photos

Showcase your property to travellers with big, eye-catching photos, including the living room, kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, outdoor spaces, pool, view, or anything else that makes your rental special. And make sure they're big, so they don't appear grainy or blurry. The ideal photo size is 1024x768.

Interactive map

When it comes to choosing a holiday rental, location is a huge part of the decision-making process. Our map makes it easy to see how close your properties are to local attractions and events. If you choose not to display a map marker for your property's location the general area of your property will be obfuscated on the map so travellers can gauge the approximate location. We recommend allowing a map marker to show your property's location. Don't worry — we respect your privacy and will never display your actual address publicly.

HomeAway Specific Tools

Guest reviews

Research shows that one of the most important things a traveller needs to move forward with the booking process is to be able to read reviews from previous guests. Our system makes it easy to contact, capture, display, and even respond to those reviews. Plus, when you use our ReservationManager tools, you can upload reviews from previous guests that have sent you feedback personally.
