Happy.Rentals and Airbnb: is there a difference?

April, 06 2022 ( Updated May, 17 2022)

In a world where holiday rentals are becoming increasingly popular, more and more people are opting for vacation rental websites when it comes to planning a holiday or renting out their home. And why not, in a post-pandemic context holiday rentals have proved to provide safety and privacy on holidays as well as a lucrative income and a popular investment option for many.

But not all vacation rental websites are the same even though they work with short-term rental properties! As a matter of fact, being in the short-term rental business ourselves, Happy.Rentals has often been confused with Airbnb. It is easy to see why. You can find and book all our incredible holiday homes on our website as well as Airbnb. But Happy.Rentals is more than just an online platform, rather we are holiday rental specialists! 

So read on and find out what makes us different from other vacation rental websites like Airbnb!

We provide full property management services and a marketplace!

To understand what holiday rental specialists like us do that Airbnb does not, one needs to know - how does Airbnb work? 

Airbnb provides an online marketplace for holiday rentals, where homeowners (Airbnb hosts) list properties for free and guests come to find the perfect holiday rental. In essence, Airbnb experiences are only related to offering a marketplace. But as holiday rental specialists, Happy.Rentals provides 360-degree professional property management and holiday rental services from start to end!

For the owners, our presence means that we make the entire process of renting out effortless and stress-free: from listing and advertising to property maintenance and guest management, we do it all as a proper property management company. As for our guests, our multilingual booking team provides them with assistance at each step and also helps them find the perfect holiday home for vacations with family or friends!

Each of our holiday homes is professionally prepared for renting.

Our dedicated team undertakes the entire rental-related process: from listing and booking of homes to hassle-free arrival and departure of guests, everything is done professionally for each of our properties.

To put your property at an advantage on all travel marketplaces, we customize each listing with professional photographs and descriptions that highlight the unique selling points of your precious home. Our team also makes sure that when guests arrive, the holiday homes are immaculately curated and clean to welcome them in. And when they leave, the homes are once again made spotless by our partner cleaning companies. 

However, having property managers is perhaps what sets us apart from Airbnb the most. Our property managers are always there for you to assist in managing and renting out your holiday home or enjoying a hassle-free vacation across our holiday destinations.

We advertise your property online and offline!

When your property is listed on a single website like Airbnb, it automatically reduces the total number of potential bookings. But when we list your property, we make sure that it is listed on more than 3000+ international and local travel agents, partners, and websites, including Airbnb and its competitors. In fact, we turn all other travel websites and portals into a complimentary marketplace for you, and also do offline advertising to give your home maximum exposure and the best possibility to be booked!

Guests also get better prices if they book directly with us, and the homeowners enjoy special prices, too, when they book other holiday homes with us in any of our wonderful locations.
