"Well done Owners Direct! We started marketing our holiday home towards the end of the summer season (not great timing) but from a standing start Owners Direct got us high occupancy and really, really, great tenants. Many thanks OD!"

Before creating your listing online, be sure to have the following items ready:
Listing on Owners Direct makes it easy to earn rental income. As one of the world leaders in holiday rentals, we can offer you exposure to millions of travellers each month.

Yes, you’re always in control of who stays in your property as every enquiry and booking request comes to you. With online booking, you have 24 hours to speak with your potential guests and make sure they’re a good fit for your property.
At Owners Direct, we believe in "The whole house. The whole family. A whole holiday." As part of our commitment to that, we only rent whole properties. But it certainly doesn't have to be a house! Acceptable rental properties include houses, apartments, and villas, as well as barns, boats, bungalows, cabins, castles, chalets, chateaus, cottages, estates, mansions, yachts, and yurts, and other structures travellers may want to rent for their whole holiday.
All listings will be sorted using our “best match” system, which applies an algorithm to all listings based on the traveller’s search criteria (e.g., travel dates, location) and ultimately displays those listings most likely to result in a successful booking. The #1 way to be successful in best match is to enable online booking for all listings and to increase the number of onsite bookings you make.
