VeryUs is building the bridge between traditional vacation rentals and the sharing economy, by helping vacation property management companies increase yield margins while solving low occupancy rates so travelers can split the cost of renting vacation homes together. Or, they can still be brave and go with family.
As the sharing economy has risen around the world and been quickly adopted, VeryUs has been developed for both the manager and traveler in mind. Born out of the need to go on vacation without friends who tend to overcommit and end up backing out of trips anyway, the idea of sharing personal space in exchange for a transaction was created.
Because property mangers are forced into hit or miss reservations, we decided to build a way for budget-conscious travelers the ability to afford luxury vacation properties without having to round up their friends like cattle who usually end up playing the role of banker while still covering the original reservation value for property managers to accept partial bookings.
Since property owners are forced into hit or miss reservations without any guarantees on performance through paid listing services that don’t provide an opportunity to increase occupancy rates through a percentage of travelers who would cover the minimum reservation rate, VeryUs is the answer to giving property owners flexibility of accepting partial bookings that can be customized to fit any desired profit margin on a room by room basis without the revolving bed and breakfast door.
While travelers today are limited to sharing a vacation property homes only with people they know and unable to make new traveler connections, we knew there was a way that would allow travelers to participate and experience a trip as a group while opening up affordable luxury access at the same time.
Through this concept, VeryUs has captured the interest from around the world including North America, Spain, Canada, Thailand, Switzerland, Australia, The UK and Italy.
Growing up with travelers running a family bed and breakfast business, where guests were already making reservations to stay at our Inn whom never met one another until they arrived, were already willing to book a reservation based on that same single common interest:
Travelers are willing to experience a fantastic getaway because they are already comfortable knowing there will be other travelers sharing a home together prior to booking.
occurs at the breakfast
table, inside a social
setting, not an online
merchant account. Since, full vacation home rental listings are just like the rest of the websites out there – static listings at hit or miss prices based on a single reservation - its been our goal to deliver experience transaction that goes far beyond the credit card machine.
Looking back at the fundamental methods of running a B&B in the early days, the real transaction doesn’t happen in a merchant terminal rather the transaction actually occurs at the breakfast table. Where travelers sit down and meet other people to talk about their shared interests and life experiences is where the real value and foundation that VeryUs is built upon.
With backgrounds in hospitality travel and software development, it is our mission to continue building the bridge between traditional vacation home rentals and the sharing economy travelers.
