Frequently Asked Questions

WhY book through this website and not via others?

When you are looking for vacation homes, you will probably end up on Home Away, VRBO, Fewo or any other related sites. They rule the market. They have millions of properties. And that’s the problem. Too much can be overwhelming and make it hard for you to decide. In addition these giants don’t update their listings as often as we do.   If you know where you want to go, check us out

Why should I list my property with you and not with the big boys?

Why decide: List our property on both websites. The problem on the big companies websites is their huge inventory. If your listing is not shown on the first 3 pages,  chances of getting a booking are slim. This is no problem on websites from smaller companies.   There is no risk, since we only charge you once a booking has occured. And any payment goes direct and right away to you. 

What are the differences to other websites?

Right now there are about 5.000 homes for rent in  Cape Coral. You need to be different in order to get bookings.  We will never beat websites like Home Away, VRBO or Fewo. They get a lot of traffic and will always show up on page 1 on any search engine. We won’t try to beat them. We simply take another approach to reach guests. Therefore we have a B2B database of over 1 Million clients. This list grows every day. These customers receive our biweekly newsletter with information about Florida. This generates interest and social media talk and therefore leads to bookings. Through our newsletter we establish relationships with our clients. They usually don’t look for other homes on other sites. They are coming to see and meet us. Therefore they book on our site. We have exclusive homes. Maybe yours is next.

Why will guests find this website?

We invested a lot of thoughts, time and effort into this site. The name already nearly gurantees  a great position on search engines like Google. People outside our biweekly newsletter looking to come to Florida will type words like “Florida” – “Rental” and the word “Vacation” in their browser. This already puts us in a great spot. On top of this, our website is highly sophisticated when it comes to Search Engine optimizing ( SEO )  Every month we spend thousands of Dollars to make sure we will be found. 


We know we can get guests to book your home. That’s why we work on commission and commission only. There is no charge to list your home.  For every successful booking we will charge the standard 15% from the NET rental price.  This means we don’t get commission from taxes, cleaning and other fee’s guests pay. 

When and how will owners get paid?

Many people don’t like it how payments from tenants through websites like Home Away, Fewo etc. are handled.  Owners often don’t get paid until the guest has already moved into the home.  With us, you get paid right away any time you want to get paid. Any payments go right to you. We don’t touch or keep any of your money

Can I get in touch with my tenants ?

And we are diferent here as well: Of course you can. We don’t block any information between you and your guests like other websites do.  We bring you and your tenants together. We broker the deal. Everything else is completely up to you

Can I use my own rental agreeement?

Yes, you can. In your agreement you can explain payment options, wire instructions and everything else. Guests request a booking on our page. We get back to you to confirm the home is available. You can still adjust the price based on number of people and time of the year. Once you confirm price and availability, you will get the customer information. From this point on, you can deal with the customer direct. In your rental agreement you can also state how you want to handle cancellations and much more  

How compliacate is it to list my property?

We invested many thousand Dollars to make everything easy. We consider ourselves a smaller version of Home Away.  Nearly everything you can do on their websites, you can do on ours too. Just on a bit smaller scale. Therefore listing your home is easy. Put in the info and press the send button.  This won’t take more than 15 Minutes max!! 

Will my property show up immediatley ?

Once we receive your listing request, you get confirmation right away. If necessary we might make some changes, but everything is agreed with you first. Usually a listing is life no later than 24 – 48 hours after it was received. From there on you can make changes, ad pictures and much more in a very easy way. We will email you a link to your personal listing, and all changes are life immediately on the site.  

CaN I keep my managment company?

We are not looking to become your ( new ) management company and we don’t want to clean your home. We are not looking to replace anyone from your existing team. We only broker the deal. We bring both parties together. If you need our help, or if you have general question and maybe need help with repairs, then of course we can help. Living in Florida for more than 15 years and Michael being a Realtor will help you get answers to most questions. 

How will guests get access to the home?

As mentioned before, you keep your existing management company and you use your own rental agreement. You got the your tenants contact information. You decide how your guests will have access to your property. Hand them access codes or phone numbers from whoever shows them in

Returning guests: Do I have to pay you again?

It would be nice  if you recognice that we have been responsible for this guest in the first place, but you don’t have to. We treat you fair and honest. You don’t owe us any commsiison for returning guests if you don’t want to

How can we make sure ur calendar is up to date?

Making sure a home is really available is often a problem. When a guests requests to stay in a home, we always contact the owner to confirm. Only the properties we manage ourselves are different. We expect the owners to reply in a timely manner to each request. We also offer the opportunity to link your calendar from other sites ( like Home Away ) on our site. Then your bookings are always update automatically and this will shorten the time for new bookings.

WhAT's thE +/- 2 day at booking for?

Let’s assume you have already booked your flight and now you picked a home you like, but this home aint availalbe for exactly the period you like.  This option is for guests who are a little flexible. Maybe you wanted to go to Orlando or to the Keys anyway. If you put these trips at the beginning or at the end of your trip, then more homes might be avialalbe for your stay.
