We have all been upset about the increasing fees that VRBO, Airbnb and other OTA Booking sites or online travel agencies are charging. The other problem with OTAs is that they do a very good job of keeping guests out of contact with hosts and vice-versa. At Holmes Beach Hideaway we want to make sure that our guests have every opportunity to contact us with every question they have. It’s one of the main reasons we created this website we want our guests to be able to book without worrying about paying fees to a middlemen. Imagine going out for pizza and before you get to the front door someone collects 20% so that you have the chance to walk in the door, it’s not fair and it shouldn’t be the case We offer booking thru AirBnB and VRBO as a convenience to our guests who still want to trust those as sites but still offer booking through our own site which we feel is better for both guest and host as it helps build our long-term relationship and saves money. We encourage you to consider both options in the end we are still happy that you book with us.
