The new partnership and addition of 6,500 select vacation homes, combined with 4,000 properties from Vacasa’s acquisition of TurnKey, makes Vacasa the leading supplier of properties to Homes & Villas by Marriott International.
The additions provide guests, including the 150 million members of Marriott International’s travel programme Marriott Bonvoy, with more options to choose from when booking accommodation across Marriott International’s 30 hotel brands and 25,000+ home rental properties around the world.
Homes & Villas by Marriott International will feature Vacasa’s premium listings, including everything from lakefront vacation homes to ski chalets and beachfront condos.
Vacasa chief revenue officer Mike Dodson said: “We’re honoured to be a part of Homes & Villas by Marriott International and to be able to offer the Marriott traveller an opportunity to explore professionally managed vacation homes by Vacasa. We are aware that Marriott Bonvoy members in particular have a variety of options when they travel and are confident that, like so many others, they will appreciate the ability to select the vacation rental features and amenities that best suit their vacation needs.”
Marriott Bonvoy members will now be able to earn and redeem points by booking select Vacasa homes directly on Homes & Villas by Marriott International.
Before being added to the Homes & Villas by Marriott International portfolio, all Vacasa properties were audited and reviewed by Marriott International to meet the company’s high standards for regulation, design, safety and amenities. Vacasa properties available to book through Homes & Villas by Marriott International are located in 30 US states, Canada and Mexico.
Dodson added: “As we add inventory to Vacasa’s growing portfolio, organically and through acquisitions like TurnKey, we plan to expand our offerings with Homes & Villas by Marriott International and look forward to a long-term relationship.”
Having launched in May 2019, Homes & Villas by Marriott International latched in May 2019 and is the hospitality company’s vacation home rental offering.
