Why Rent with Owners Direct

Over 500,000 holidaymakers book via Owners Direct every year *. This is why...

"Spoilt for choice"

With over 70,000 different properties to choose from, we're sure you'll find something perfect for your holiday. From villas and cottages to apartments and even boats and lighthouses - we advertise properties of all shapes and sizes and to suit all budgets. The majority of our listings are advertised by the owner directly but we also feature clearly marked Property Managers to increase your choice of accommodation.


"A more personal service"

When you book private holiday accommodation, you will enjoy a more personal service. Learn the history behind the property, the very best of everything in the area, and how to make the most of your holiday when staying at their holiday homes. Who better to give you advice about how to holiday in their property than the owner?


"33% cheaper than a hotel"**

Booking a holiday home often represents great value for money. In a recent study we found that holiday homes are on average 33% cheaper than hotels of a similar quality as well as offering a lot more space for your money. The price as quoted by the owner is what you pay, and what the owner receives.


"A holiday that suits your needs"

Whether you are looking for a large property for a family get-together, a central apartment for a city break, or a break in the country where you can take your dog, you are bound to find a property to suit your needs. Our Advanced Search means you can select the facilities which are important to you.


"Peace of mind"

Owners Direct has been operating since 1997 and many owners have advertised with us for several years. In fact, all listings indicate how long the owner has been advertising the property with us.
