Owners and manages of any legal Hawaii vacation rental are welcome to list on Homey Hawaii. The property must have either a tax class or a permit to be rented as a vacation rental. We require all listings to have the Hawaii Tax ID, which gets displayed on the listing page right below "Send Inquiry" button.
The annual listing fee is $119 per property. It can be negotiable when listing multiple properties.
If you are not satisfied with our service during the first year, we will either (1) fully refund the fee you paid or (2) offer you another year free of charge. If you choose option (2) - another year free of charge, we will offer you a free review of your listing, so you can make changes according to our recommendations and increase your rate of inquiries and bookings.
Before letting any listing go live, we verify the posted Hawaii Tax License and the owner name(s) on hawaii.gov website, and we connect with the listing owners through the phone and email. All Homey Hawaii listings are legal vacation rentals. Read more on the verification process.
Our model is similar to old VRBO - owners pay a yearly listing fee, and there are no per-booking fees or commissions for guests or owners. When travelers are interested in a vacation rental, they submit an inquiry from the listing page and the owner/manager of that property gets an email with travelers' dates, comments and email address. After the initial inquiry, owners/managers deal with travelers directly.
In the search results, we sort the listings according to the listing score. The explanation of the scores is available on each listing's Summary page, after logging to Owner Home.
When you register your account with Homey Hawaii, you will receive an email to confirm your provided email address. After that, you can login to Owner Home, and start entering information for your property. Alternatively, we can help you to copy most of the information from your existing listing on VRBO or another portal. We are available to answer your questions through email or phone, and will help to setup and maintain your listing(s) to the best of our abilities.
When an owner/manager, who already has published listing(s) on Homey Hawaii (the Referrer), refers another owner/manager new to our website (the Referred), both the Referrer and the Referred receive a full free year for one of their published listings.
The best way to make the referral, is for the Referrer to send us an email with the name and contact information of the Referred owner/manager.
