How to Get Started on Homes & Villas by Marriott

To list a property on Homes & Villas, you first have to fill out an interest form on the Marriott site.

Here, you’ll have to answer questions about your company and portfolio. Like: 

  • “Where is your company based?”
  • “In which region are most of your homes located?”
  • “Which channel manager do you use?” (😉 E.g Rentals United)
  • “How many units do you manage?”

Once Marriott receives your information, they review it, and if it meets their initial criteria, they start the vetting process.

This process usually includes audits and reviews of your property management practices and the properties themselves.

Channel managers that partner with Marriott, like Rentals United, can make this process easier for you.

For example, if one of your properties doesn’t pass Marriott’s requirements, we often set up a meeting between you and Marriott’s local team representative to discuss areas of improvement. 

After you address their feedback, you can submit your property for review again.

If all goes well, you can sign your contract with Marriott. This commercial aspect can be lengthy, often taking a month or more. 

Afterward, we support our property managers with the technical aspects of meeting Marriott’s requirements. Like adding amenities, descriptions, and photos to ensure you succeed on the channel.
