Rentmix – A Vacation Rental Aggregator

The goal of any vacation should be to spend as little time as possible planning and as much time as possible enjoying. Rentmix is a tool that cuts down on the time people spend searching for the perfect vacation rental properties. It does this by searching all the major rental sites – including HomeAway, AirBnB, and FlipKey – in one fell swoop.

Find the perfect house, condo, townhouse, or cottage for your upcoming trip by visiting the Rentmix site and typing in a destination. The more information you can include, such as your price requirements, size requirements, and arrival/departure dates, the better job Rentmix will do at finding a property that fits your needs. The results page you’ll end up at after clicking “Find Rentals” looks like a giant Google map. Click on the map icons to view individual properties in your desired locale. You can also browse rentals by using the up and down arrow keys. Dollar signs represent the price of the properties you’re looking at, ranging from $ ($100/night) all the way up to $$$$$ (beyond $800/night). When you find a property that fits what you’re looking for, click “Full Details and Contact Owner” and you’ll be directed to the original listing on HomeAway, AirBnB, or FlipKey.

If you want to book a property you found through Rentmix, you’ll need to go through the original listing. Although Rentmix can provide you with photos and rate information, it doesn’t have any actual contact with the owners of the properties you’re viewing. Nonetheless, Rentmix is an excellent tool that does for vacation rentals what did for plane tickets. For people who want a great vacation rental without the hassle of searching through listings on three different sites, Rentmix is a fantastic solution.
