Why You Need It
Thrill Your Guests With An Area Guide They'll Love
Help your vacation rental guests create the perfect holiday with a customized area guide that doubles as a pre-arrival trip planner and a digital guidebook they’ll use throughout their stay.
Show Off Your Area As Only A Local Can
Tap into your local expertise to lead guests to the best your area has to offer and give them a genuine taste of local life at its best.
Give Guests A Vacation That Will Keep Them Coming Back
Yes, they love their vacation home. But what they see, do and discover — the hidden beach, a spectacular hike, the best lobster ever — determines how they’ll remember their trip and your business.
How It Works
Start With Our Search Algorithm
Our search algorithm scours the internet for your area’s top-rated restaurants, things to do and essential services. Recommendations upload in seconds and update automatically, so no worries when hours change or a business closes.
Customize Our Suggestions
Keep what you like, drop what you don’t, and add anything we missed. Include as many places as you like. Arrange your selections with our drag-and-drop feature. Add comments and tips to personalize your recommendations.
Enhance With Photos, Videos & More
Our algorithms use information licensed from Google, but you’re not limited to that. Feel free to add freeform text with a title, address, URL, photos, videos and and PDFs.
Smart Features That Make A Big Difference
Display Your Branding
Brand the area guide with your vacation rental logo and colors to showcase your professionalism and remind guests of the services you provide.
Provide Personal Tips
Share tips only a local knows, like where you’ll see the mayor sipping coffee most mornings or which days the bakery makes their world- famous chocolate chip muffins.
Each recommendation includes hours, Google reviews, websites, phones, addresses, maps and directions. Automatic updates mean you don’t need to do anything when hours change or a business closes.
The area guide is an invaluable trip-planning resource. Use Text Automation to send the guide automatically by text or email on the date you choose.
Calculate Distances Automatically
Distances from the vacation rental home to everything in the area guide are calculated and mapped automatically so guests can decide whether to walk, bike or drive.
Tagging helps you send automated messages with location-specific area guide links to guests.
Be Mobile and Desktop Friendly
The guide works equally well on mobile devices and desktop computers. No installation or app is required..
Get Guest Bookmarking
Guests can bookmark recommendations they like and create a shortlist of activities for their trip.
Get QR Codes
A QR codes makes it easy for friends or relatives of the primary guest to access information found in the area guide. Display the code where guests will see it — on a refrigerator, kitchen counter or a bedside table.
Print The Guide
Some guests prefer to consult a paper guide. Our print feature lets you create paper copies with all the information found in the digital guide. Printed copies can also be helpful for properties with a weak internet signal.
