Stay in a vacation rental, explore off-the-beaten path locations and enjoy the culture of your vacation destination!

HomeAway offers 260,000 vacation rentals in over 140 countries worldwide, making them a top online destination for travelers seeking local home rentals for their vacation needs. With beach houses, condos, apartments, studios, cottages, chalets, villas, cabins and more, HomeAway's selection of vacation rentals is as impressive as it is inspiring.

Founded by Brian Sharples and Carl Shepherd in 2005, the idea for HomeAway was born out of Sharple's frustration over negotiating in the highly fragmented vacation rental industry. Fueled by the desire to help other travelers experience the enjoyment that Sharples had when renting vacation homes for his own family that offered more space, amenities, and greater flexibility than the average hotel stay, Sharples and Shepherd have created one of the largest online marketplaces for vacation rentals.
