Tweener Homes partners with Escapia
US: Tweener Homes, a short-term rental platform designed for families between permanent residences, has partnered with Expedia Group’s Escapia web platform.
By partnering with the company, Tweener hopes to expand its market space for customers and connect with more homeowners.
Nick Calvi founded Tweener Homes after a first-hand experience being between homes showed him a visible gap in the marketplace. The company focuses on fully furnished rentals from one to 11 months, emphasizing its place for those who are searching for a permanent home or awaiting the end of construction or renovations.
Calvi said: “I found furnished rental homes for short term vacation stays but were cost-prohibitive for a multiple month stay and unfurnished homes but required me to sign a 1-year lease. For people in between a vacation rental and a 1-year lease, there weren’t any options that made sense.”
Tweener currently shows 1,943 available homes in Arizona, where the company is based, primarily around the greater Phoenix Area. The company hopes to leverage the 14,000 registered users that take advantage of the Escapia platform.
Calvi added: “I was once ‘Tweener’ myself and experienced firsthand the anxiety and frustration of where to look and find a comfortable temporary home until we could move into our new permanent home. We are thrilled to announce this partnership which will give Tweeners across the country easy access to find and book a fully furnished home.”
By partnering with the large platform, all property owners and managers working with Escapia can list their properties on Tweener Homes, improving occupancy during less busy periods for rental homes. Renters will also benefit, as they will now be able to access up to date listings, alongside various additional online discounts.
The Escapia platform and the access it provides to a variety of homes have been a core part of other partnerships. EzCare and BookingPal have both been highlighted as software platforms for their ability to link with Escapia.
