Vacation Rental Managers: Establishing Your Brand in a Competitive Landscape

Hawaii Vacation Rentals Logo with TM

I recently had the opportunity to give a keynote on the importance of Brand at a regional conference in the Pacific Northwest. There were over 50 vacation rental brands represented at this conference. It was rewarding to hear these brands talk about what makes their destinations so unique to the traveler. As VRM’s ourselves, we have been on a mission these past few years to highlight these attributes to the traveling public regardless of where they are in the sales cycle. What has been lacking in the market has been sites that work on behalf of these professionals hosts. One that does not attempt to force you to capitulate to their demands, connects the travelers directly to your brand, does not hide guests emails, and respects your contribution to the ecosystem. We are pleased to announce the pre release of Fetchmyvr.

Connecting Travelers Direct to Well Established Brands

Fetchmyvr connects travelers directly to Professional Hosts seamlessly. Travelers have come to expect an elevated level of service from professional brands who are committed to a successful vacation rental experience. Smart Travelers know they can book vacation rentals direct and save hundreds to thousands of dollars in “Fees” from brokers. We don’t believe that should stop.

As part of the Fetch My Guest Marketing Automation Platform™, Fetchmyvr provides the Professional Hosts the ability to present their brands direct to the traveler while having complete control of the booking process. Professional Hosts now have another distribution point that advocates on behalf of their brand. Providing a win-win for the traveler and the Professional Hosts.

We look forward to building our network of Professional Hosts who understand the value of communicating through their respective Brands.

Industry Experts and Professional Hosts Agree!

Sweeping views of the 5th green of the Ke?olu Golf Course and the slopes of Hualalai mountain are a beautiful contrast to the azure ocean and breathtaking sunsets. A custom designed infinity / tension edge swimming pool is just one of the many keynote architectural details that transform this villa-home into a statement property. Stroll leisurely to the Canoe Club for lunch or a swim; schedule a stand up paddle board session alongside dolphins and whales; take your golf cart along the oceanfront path to enjoy the Four Seasons Resort amenities; or, simply go Mauka (to the mountain) to enjoy the Member-only Ke?olu Clubhouse.
