We are thrilled about making our debut to the market! After months and months of development, LazyStays.com is ready to be unveiled to the vacation rental property market. LazyStays.com is a web based platform for advertising vacation rental properties. As we grow our website, travellers will find a broad selection of vacation rentals available on LazyStays.com.
Our model is simple. Unlike most other vacation rental property websites that are available in today’s market, LazyStays.com does not charge travellers booking fees and does not charge vacation rental property owners commission on the rentals they advertise on our website. We are also vacation rental property owners. Over the last few years, we have personally experienced the same frustrations that other vacation rental property owners and travellers have, as a result of the introduction of booking fees and commissions by most vacation rental websites. Our mission at LazyStays.com is to offer a vast selection of vacation rental properties on our website, without imposing commission fees on vacation rental property owners or charging travellers booking fees. We have listened to the feedback from vacation rental property owners and travellers and are offering a solution that addresses the concerns we have heard. LazyStays.com is going back to the basics by offering a vacation rental model that has yielded successful results for vacation rental property owners and travellers in the past.
You are probably wondering how we make money? It’s simple. We charge vacation rental property owners a flat fee subscription to list their vacation rental properties on our website. Vacation rental property owners can choose to pay a yearly flat fee, or monthly subscription, to advertise their property on LazyStays.com. We do not charge booking fees or commissions. Our platform provides vacation rental property owners with the tools they need to showcase their property with photos and videos and displays the salient details pertaining to their property in an easy, viewable format for the traveller. With the press of a button, vacation rental property owners can broaden their presence by sharing their listings on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

There is no barrier to communication between property owners and travellers. In fact, LazyStays.com encourages communication between vacation rental property owners and travellers so that there are no surprises. There is nothing more disappointing than arriving at the vacation rental that you booked months in earlier, only to find it was not what you thought it was. LazyStays.com gives travellers the access they need to do their homework before securing a reservation with the vacation rental property owner.
Vacation rental property owners handle their own reservations therefore travellers are speaking with people that have actual knowledge of the features of the property and floor plan. LazyStays.com simply facilitates the introduction between vacation rental property owner and traveller by advertising the property on the site and facilitating the contact between vacation rental property owner and traveller on the listing. We believe that transparency between vacation rental property owners and travellers is a key ingredient to sourcing a successful vacation rental property experience.
