Press Release: Escapia Names the Top Ten Vacation Rental Satisfaction Superstars

By Kris Lande, Product Marketing Manager

It’s no secret, at Escapia we LOVE guest reviews. We feel that guest reviews are one of the most powerful tools vacation rental managers have to differentiate themselves from the rest of the pack. Guest reviews drive additional bookings by giving online travelers the confidence they need to book your vacation rentals. In fact, our data shows that the ratio of bookings for units with reviews is 41% higher than for those without reviews.

That said, we wanted showcase some vacation rental managers that are guest review superstars, so we compiled a top ten list of vacation rental managers who are getting the highest satisfaction ratings from past guests. The ratings, done using the EscapiaOne ratings and review system, are 100% verified to come from past guests and reflect the opinions of more than 50,000 guests.

And the winners are…(drumroll please!)

Congratulations to our winners; and job well done for taking excellent care of their guests and giving vacation rentals a great reputation!

Tripadvisor, one of, if not the top, site where vacationers go before choosing their accommodations and finalizing their travel plans, seeking the opinion of other fellow travelers.  With over 20 million reviews and opinions, everyone is sure to find at least one review on something they are looking for, whatever it may be.  Vacation rentals were out of this loop for quite some time, but because vacation homes are on the rise, becoming an extremely popular option for traveler accommodations, Tripadvisor must have felt compelled to add them on to their vast directory of travel resources.

In order to do this, Tripadvisor has a partnership with Flipkey.com, a vacation rental reputation management website dedicated to collecting unbiased, real reviews from guests (much like Tripadvisor does).  These reviews on Flipkey are all pulled into Tripadvisor.  If the user wishes, he or she may click on one of the reviewed properties and book the property online, right then and there.
