After over 10 years of advertising with VRBO for this property and 4 years with another outside of Wilmington,NC, that has ended. Ever since Expedia took over VRBO (owned by HomeAway) in 2016 there have been unfavorable changes basically due to Expedia’s greed. On average, owners pay about $400.00/year/site and if VRBO truly advertises for over 2 million owners, that’s around $800,000,000.00/year — but they still need to require a service fee from our guests that has been between 5%-9% of what I charge! An average has been $93.00 additional. If you would like to go through them, that is fine, but it won’t be for our houses.
Of course we hope you feel comfortable with dealing with us directly (and taking advantage of the savings, too), but, if you prefer to book using a company, we understand. AirBnB has been our outside advertiser for a couple of years and we appreciate their consideration of both the owner and traveler.
The VRBO advertising and reviews badge below will probably expire soon, but I did have over 35 reviews on that site. I will be attaching the reviews/comments as a PDF file soon.
