Our Competitors - It's a Slow Process

  • Your time is valuable and you could waste a lot of it filling out forms and waiting for replies. Sometimes busy owners don’t reply.
  • First you usually have to calculate the price yourself, and then once you’ve picked the perfect vacation rental, you talk to the owner, and the price has changed.
  • Rental directories limit and charge for the number of property photos displayed and their websites are cluttered with advertisements.
  • Complete information on the property may never be disclosed, until it is too late, and you are already there.
  • Web Directories are cumbersome and time consuming. If you have a problem, you’re on your own.


Searching for your vacation rental should not be stressful. Owner Direct takes some of the frustration out of finding that perfect place - just for you.

Clear, concise, easy to read listings, coupled with excellent customer service and great prices are the perfect combination to help you save time and money when planning the perfect get-a-way.

"Rather than let units go unfilled in their prime season, ski-condo owners post discounted prices online to entice spontaneous folks (and procrastinators) to book at the last minute. Prices dip lower as the deadline approaches. "I tell my friends to search about a week in advance," says Tony Lopes, manager of Ownerdirect.com, which lists condo rentals all over the world, including at many ski resorts. Ownerdirect.com is heavy on British Columbia properties (600 units at the Whistler and Big White resorts alone), and has a good selection for the rest of Canada and the U.S. In one of its Rock Bottom Specials, which are discounted by at least 40 percent, a two-bedroom unit in Park City, Utah, dropped from $120 to $60 a night."
