I am on the Reserve with Google page: https://www.google.com/maps/reserve/partners

This lists developer documentation, interest form, and company logos that currently enable booking ability, and those that are Coming Soon

There seem to be experiences, massages, restaurants here.

I believe that vacation rentals are currently done via Airbnb, vrbo, etc and not direct yet

But it would be good for your to get out on front of this, and at least review the developer stuff above. It might be something that comes soon or eventually...

On their blog - partners are listed such as a competitor: RentalsUnited


"Starting with our mobile experience, you can see and book vacation rentals from a variety of partners including Expedia, HomeAway, Hotels.com, NextPax, RedAwning, Rentals United, TripAdvisor, VRBO and more. In the hotel search experience, you can surface vacation rental properties—be it a cabin in Lake Tahoe or a beach house in Sydney—by applying the vacation rentals filter or clicking on the vacation rentals tip."

yea, I noticed that. experiences, restaurants, massages, etc.

how is rentalsunited working with them?

And the fact that homeaway and others can book us through the google hotels thing is no use for direct bookings.

But the longterm direction has to be putting together packages with hotels/VRs, flights, car rentals, experiences, etc...

So I expect them to merge also.

I will be doing tours next year, which will be part of our destination spa. Vac rentals, spa services, wellness, tours, classes, etc.

I consider getting a couple thousand people through our vacation rentals as a captive source of potential clients for the other stuff. So the
