Rentals United is very excited to announce they have become the first European channel manager to connect with Homes & Villas by Marriott International platform through their newly announced Channel Connectivity Program.
When demand for vacation rentals skyrocketed last year, and as signs continue to point towards this trend, Homes & Villas by Marriott International has been rapidly growing their whole-home rental offering.
They have since built an API, allowing property management companies, property management software systems, and channel managers to integrate their software, creating a plethora of benefits, such as faster connections, increased efficiency and greater reliability.
As the first channel manager based in Europe to connect directly to Homes & Villas by Marriott International, property managers now have the opportunity to apply to this exclusive platform.
After noticing the boom in vacation rentals, Marriott International decided it was time to bring their 90+ years of hospitality expertise into the vacation rental market.
So in May 2019, they launched Homes & Villas by Marriott International, now a curated and growing collection of 25,000+ premium and luxury vacation rentals located in 250+ prime destinations across the world.
With a focus only on primarily premium and luxury rental homes, Marriott is selective about who is able to join the platform. They only work with select professional property management companies to ensure that every home listed on their platform can be serviced at a standard expected of Marriott International.
