Does your listing meet the following criteria?

3) At least 6 high resolution photos: For more tips on maximising your listing photos, read our 7 Top Tips – How to Impress With Your Photos.

4) Detailed number of bedrooms & bathrooms: Each listing needs to minimally have 1 bedroom & bathroom on the listing.

5) Accurate listing location: Your location pin needs to be placed correctly on the map to be accurately represented.

6) Updated calendar: Make sure that you log into your account to update and/or sync your calendar regularly to prevent multiple bookings from travelers. To sync your calendars, follow the instructions here.

Additional Notes:

  • HomeAway caters to travelers looking for a whole property of their own. Therefore only whole properties will be pushed out onto our global sites; and not private nor shared rooms.
  • Enhancing your listing will increase your chances of getting inquiries and bookings. However, we also encourage our owners to promote your listing further by highlighting any unique services and amenities in your listing description and/or headline!


We encourage you to review your current listing to ensure you are meeting the minimum listing requirements to enable us to qualify you for extra exposure!
