Listing your Holiday Rental Home

There is a huge range of advertising opportunities for listing your holiday rental home in Australia.  Some holiday rental home websites are free, some charge an advertising fee, some charge a per night rate, some charges are based on a per booking costs and others a % cost of confirmed booking (ie. commission on sales) – and some charge a mix of the above!

These costs can mount up – particularly if you are already paying a property manager to manage your property.

On top of this, you may also generate bookings through your own website (which we definitely encourage) as this enables another no-fee option.  Many of the listing websites below request direct links to your website. Therefore, think about whether you need your own website.

We at La Maison Pacifique have a mix of all the above and our choices (and costs) – as at 30 September 2013 – are outlined below.  Many of these have links to our own advertisement so you can see what you get for your advertising dollar…  Free listings are always worthwhile – although they need to be regularly checked as I have found (when doing this blog) that some websites have missed our location off their location choices…

Accommodation Listings and Fees charged


http://stayz.com.auAnnual fee + per night cost

Stayz is probably the most recognised site in Australia and has generated the most enquiries for us.


http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/257759no cost to owner, but guests pay a fee

Only drawback with airbnb…  Not really appropriate for our market – more geared towards accommodation where it is a room offer rather than a whole house.  You are unable to receive contact details for clients, which when doing our blogs and newsletters like we do, can be a drawback as you can’t add people to your contact list.

Home Away

http://www.homeaway.com.au/holiday-rental/p153348 – Australia

http://www.homeaway.it/affitto-vacanze/p153348 – Italy

http://www.abritel.fr/location-vacances/p153348a – Abritel

http://www.aluguetemporada.com.br/imovel/p153348 – Alugue Temporada

For all homeaway.com bookings there is an Annual Advertising Fee

This is an interesting one.  Our experience is that we get lots of enquiries but yet to confirm a booking!  Part of this is because there is no calendar functions and we are getting enquiries for the same popular dates.  Good to add people to our contact lists (for our newsletters) though.



This is our own website.  After a slow start, we are now generating a good number of enquiries through here.  All enquiries are added to our monthly newsletter subscriber list, and are given instructions on how to unsubscribe.  The process of creating a higher social media presence has been intensive, but is now paying off with greater numbers of website “hits”, enquiries and bookings.
