MediaVacationRentals.com, specialized in owner direct vacation rentals since 2002, is a renowned market leader in the sector.

Some professionals use unfair tactics to artificially lower rental prices:

  • Prices calculated per person, based on maximum occupancy
  • 'Processing fees' not included in price
  • Equipment included as an option
  • etc.

These methods result in unfair competition for for private owners who offer all-inclusive rates. That's why the MediaVacationRentals.com service is reserved for owner direct rentals only.

Over the past 15 years MediaVacationRentals.com has built up an ever-growing customer base, with guests enjoying the advantages of owner direct rentals, confident in the site's commitment to high standards.

Protection against unfair reviews

Reviews posted by the guests about rentals are not always entirely objective. The weather, snow conditions and other external factors that upset vacationers' expectations can impact on their feelings about the rental.

In the event of a clash between the guest and the owner, posting a negative review may be a way for the renter to put pressure on the owner or even to get revenge. Fortunately, this doesn’t happen very often, but it can happen and needs to be taken into account, as once a negative review has been posted it is very difficult or even impossible to delete it. And sometimes just one negative comment is all it takes to drastically reduce the number of rental queries.

To avoid poor or unfair reviews being published while protecting and informing potential guests, MediaVacationRentals has introduced the following system:

Negative reviews about the property are not published.

However, they are systematically investigated to check:

  • the review's objectiveness,
  • whether the complaints made about the rental are true or not.

If complaints made about the rental turn out to be based on fact, the rental in question may be subject to a MediaVacationRentals “Quality Information” rider, which may be removed at a later date and at the owner’s request if the problems identified have been corrected.
