Our Story

Hard Working Holiday Home Owners Missing Out

Search and Stay founders saw diligent homeowners doing all the hard work but not enjoying their full rewards.

Most owners who self-manage their holiday properties put enormous effort into organising and preparing their holiday house, cleaning and maintaining their holiday property, decorating their holiday house and creating a fantastic holiday guest experience and yet lose a fair portion of their guest charges to listing sites and Online Travel Agencies (OTAs).

A Platform Where Owners Pay Nothing

Holiday home owners who list on most holiday listing platforms and Online Travel Agencies (OTA) pay a commission or per-booking-charge. This cost comes out of the owners' profits or is passed on to the guest.

With Search and Stay there is no cost to owners to list, book and manage properties. Search and Stay, simply, adds a minimal, affordable charge to each confirmed reservation.

Search and Stay, Simple, Useful and Affordable

Search and Stay was built as a holiday rental platform that put owners first and is a simple and useful site for holiday rental owners. Search and Stay is committed to being the most affordable holiday rental booking platform for both holiday rental guests and owners.

Why Is It Free For Owners on Search and Stay?

There is zero cost to advertising and taking bookings for your holiday home on Search and Stay.

Holiday property owners who self-manage their accommodation put an enormous amount of effort into managing their holiday house, cleaning and maintaining their holiday property, decorating their holiday house and creating a fantastic holiday guest experience around the rental of their holiday accommodation. Listing your holiday home on most platforms, you expect to pay either commissions or per-booking-fees when a guest chooses to stay at your property.

Some holiday rental property owners may add these fees into the cost of the booking or include it in the rates of their holiday home, this is a completely acceptable way of reducing your loss however, it does inflate the cost of your property and could be off-putting to guests.

Search and Stay charge a very minimal booking fee to the guest per booking and there is no cost to owners.

If you're a holiday property owner, own a holiday unit or apartment or rent out your holiday house, you need to consider this as a business and ensure that you make a suitable profit so that you can enjoy your hard work.
