Vacation Home Rentals Direct, LLC is not a faceless national corporation or a subsidiary of a conglomerate giant. We are independently owned and operated, and located right here in Montana - just one hour away from Yellowstone National Park.
After 40+ years in the corporate word, I retired and decided to pursue my life-long dream of designing/building rustic, mountain-modern homes - log, timberframe and hybrid. In 2010, as an investment, I designed and built two log homes and renovated a third in West Yellowstone, MT for the purpose of short-term vacation rentals. And no surprise, I listed with the Mega-Sites - e.g., VRBO, HomeAway, Airbnb, etc and life was good - up until a couple of years ago when the Mega-Sites started abusing the homeowners, and their guests, with their egregious and controlling rules and fees which, if not followed, would result in the Mega-Sites punishing the homeowners by de-listing their properties, or by hiding them when a traveler did a property search, etc. Finally, enough was enough and we decided to establish this site as an alternative to the Mega-Sites! Simple rules, no hidden fees, a strong focus on customer satisfaction - both traveler and homeowner. We hope that homeowners will try us out, and that travelers will use and benefit from our site!
We connect travelers with homeowners and property managers who want an easy-to-use, yet comprehensive, site when booking their vacation rentals. We are excited to serve our travelers and the Montana, Wyoming & Idaho communities by providing a growing database of vacation rental homes throughout the 3-state area. And we seek to provide a world-class, customer-focused, vacation rental platform without the hassle, abuse or fees experienced when dealing with the Mega-Sites.
