With more than 35 years of combined experience in vacation rentals, Alex Husner and Annie Holcombe have teamed up to connect the dots between inspiration and opportunity, seeking to find the one story, idea, strategy or decision that led to their guests' big A-HA moment.
As legacy operators of vacation rentals, Alex and Annie believe in direct bookings, and rental owners who are currently only using OTAs like Airbnb or Vrbo can benefit from creating their own direct booking platform. In fact, they’re bullish on diversifying their properties to ensure they’re listed on multiple platforms and are flexible for different types of guests.
We also discuss the real estate and rental bubble and when it might burst, consolidation amongst rental properties, and what legacy vacation rentals can learn from newer short-term rentals (and vice versa).
