LOCAL AREA GUIDES
Why It Matters
Delight Your Guests
Help your vacation rental guests create the perfect holiday with a customized area guide that doubles as a pre-arrival trip planner and handbook they’ll use during their stay. What they see, do and discover determines how they’ll remember their trip.
Show Off Your Area
Tap your local experience to lead guests to the best your area has to offer and give them a genuine taste of local life. Don’t let them waste time on Yelp and Google.
They’re coming for a vacation
Yes, your job is to help your guests find their ideal vacation rental property. But what your guests see, do and discover — the hidden beach, that spectacular hike, the best lobster ever — determines how they’ll remember their trip.

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.

Features You’ll Enjoy
Branding with Logo and Colors
Show your company’s colors and logo with pride whenever guests consult the guide. Your logo and colors make the guide yours alone, remind guests of the services you provide and burnish the professionalism of your vacation rental business.
Share tips only a local knows, like where you’ll see the mayor sipping coffee most mornings or which days the bakery makes their 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.
Automatic Distance Calculations
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.
Mobile and Desktop Friendly
The guides work equally well on a mobile device and a desktop computer. No installation or app is required to use the guide.
Guests can bookmark recommendations they like and create a shortlist of activities for their trip.
QR codes for local area guides makes it easy for friends or relatives of the primary guest to access information found in these helpful, customized guides. Display the codes where guests will see them — on a refrigerator or kitchen counter.
Some guests prefer to consult a paper guide. Our print feature lets you create paper copies with all the information found in the electronic guide. Printed copies can also be helpful for properties with a weak internet signal.
Embed Area Content
Embed local area content into your website with a single line of code. It's as easy as inserting a YouTube video.
See when, how many times and for how long the local area guides were viewed by your guests.
