Remigi R., St. Peters, Australia

Troy J., Lake Country, Canada
"This is the first time I have dealt with your company. It is the best experience I have had with a vacation rental site. I prefer to go thru you guys however we wanted to stay in this neighborhood and really wanted a house with a pool hot tub combo. The ones on your site did not quite have what we were looking for. However next vaca I will be back searching with this company. In fact I have one more summer vaca to book so will try owner direct first. Thanks!"
"The girls at owner direct were some of the most pleasant people we have had the pleasure to work with. They went above and beyond to help us secure our dream vacation. We cannot thank them enough,"
"After having a nightmare episode with another outfit, I have to say Owner Direct got back to me in a timely manner & were more than we could have asked for. Knowledgeable, courteous, pleasant. It has been a nice experience & we would recommend them to everybody. Can't wait for our getaway!
Steve & Martha
"Thank you Owner Direct for your prompt service and thoroughness. I am so pleased with my booking and Owner Direct was there to guide me through the process. I was able to speak with a representative almost immediately (very pleasant and straightforward) and received followup emails right away. They were very helpful with questions I had and provided an extension to my grace period with no problem. Your company was great to deal with! I will consider making future bookings with Owner Direct for sure."

"I wanted to compliment you on your great service. The lady I spoke too was awesome. She made sure to answer all my questions and concerns. She also said if I need any clarification she would be happy to re-explain. She was very respectful and polite. I would recommend your site to friends and family. We are now talking to the condo owner at Playa del Sol Kelowna BC and all is going well. We are looking forward to our condo stay in Kelowna next year for a family wedding. Kind regards,"
"Way to go Owner Direct. This was our first time renting a vacation home whereas we usually stay with family. It was an awesome experience and my children loved it and already want to go again next year. Thanks for everything!!!"

"I can honestly say that renting this property through Owner Direct was the best experience we have ever had and we have been renting vacation homes for the past 20 years."
"Owner Direct has been awesome. Painless and quick. Great condo's to rent and very polite . The only way to vacation. "
"Thank you so much for your email.
Believe me, it is with great regret that due to a family arrangement conflict, we will not be getting away and therefore, the only reason I will not be booking your beautiful property. I appreciate the opportunity to give you feedback as mine is all positive. I have to be honest, my friends, colleagues and family regularly get away but I was not familiar with Owner Direct until now.
As you undoubtedly know, searching websites is so often frustrating as often lacking in details, pictures, or worse, loaded with plenty of hidden charges. Moreover, the response time to inquiries is sometimes so very long.
I have told my family that as soon as we are ready to plan our next getaway, I will consult first and foremost Owner Direct as your website is great and your response time even great! And how fantastic to speak/communicate with you!!!!
I also want to let you know I have forwarded your link to my friends!!
I thank you once again for your extraordinary follow up and truly appreciate the offer. I only regret not being able to take this opportunity now.
I do know for sure that I will be contacting Owner Direct as we plan our next get away soon."
"Thank you very much for the follow-up. The service has been brilliant & to be honest very unexpected. I was a little unsure about how Owner Direct worked (having never used it before and being from Australia) but I would have absolutely no hesitation in using the service in the future."
"Thank you so much for looking into all those places for me today and really trying to find us the impossible at such short notice in the most high demand time of the year. Thank you once again for your wonderful customer service I really appreciated you positive attitude and understanding in my pickly situation today lol, I hope your employer appreciates your work because I will definitely be calling you guys in the future for my mountain accommodations because of the great experience I had speaking with you today.
Thanks again and hope you have Happy and Fun holidays"
"Overall a great experience. ... Experience with Owner Direct was professional and a cut above VRBO and the others. We will return!"
"... I do appreciate your careful attention to customer service, and your exceptionally efficient staff. I have recommended your agency to friends and family."
"I had a good experience with Owner Direct and the people that work there... the staff was very helpful with all the questions I had and got back to me right away with answers. In the future I would be happy to deal with Owner Direct. Sincerely,"
"This is the first time I do research on your website and I am really impressed with the follow up and services. I was surprised the first time I answer the phone call of one of your co worker just minutes after I have done a request in your website. I is very reassuring to actually speak to someone and it give a sens of security and safeness. Also the follow up with the owners is detailed in many emails ; we understand that your team is dedicated to help us! I am really sorry for the inconvenient of the dates change ; for sure I will consult again your website for my next research. I have done many research ( most in Europe) and rent houses in Europe for our past summer holidays and I must say that your service is the best! Thank you again"
"I was very satisfied from your professional, fast and kind attitude and handling the connection between me and the owner. Thank you."
"Thank you for all the help your team provided in finding the right condo for my family and I. Unfortunately we had to cancel our trip which is why we didn't go ahead and pay the deposit. Your service was great and I will definitely use your help the next time I plan a trip."
"Sorry for not reading your last email more thoroughly! I am pleased to know the property is still available. The service and website you and your company has provided is exceptional. You have been very prompt with your correspondence and I am just sorry that I wasn't able to provide the same timely correspondence in return! I am placing a call to Australia again tonight in hopes to confirm the dates and finalize our booking."
"All I can say is thank you so much for helping me. I like your site for the information that I believe is most detailed from other sites that I have searched. And quick response of course. Especially when I phoned for some inform, the lady on the phone was so patient and even lead me step by step to fill out the on line request form. I feel grateful and at the same time that I am sorry that I didn't bring business for your site. But I will definitely keep this site in my record for the future reference. Thank you and wish you all the best."
"Dear Nikki, This system worked very well for us. The one bedroom apartment is extremely nice offering good views. The resort is superb with a lovely pool and nice beaches. A useful feature is the transport to South Beach included in the fee. Even though we had a car it was good to use the transport one way and a taxi back to enable us to have drinks. We were in contact at all times with the owner which was helpful. The owner made it very easy for us to make payments for the apartment especially when we were not able to send USD cheques from UK. Most of all it was great to have private facilities within a luxury hotel setting without paying extortionate hotel fees."
Thanks Regards, Kiran

"This was the most amazing house to stay in. Brand new with lots of bells and whistles!! When we walked in it was like Christmas morning for the kids, they ran from room to room and screamed when they found the sauna and steam room. It was so nice for a large group of people because there is so much space, you can find a place to go and quietly read your book. Fully stocked with everything you could ever want. We will come back to this place in a heart beat. Thank you for the comfortable home!!!"

"Thank you for your very quick email and telephone response. Although we do love this property it has been smarter for us to secure something smaller as it is only two of us, so we will not be booking this property. Again thank you for your efficient service it was very refreshing. I deal with a lot of businesses for my work and most of them need to learn from you re service."
Kind regards, Garry

Vacation Rental in Banff - Unit 133776
"Dear Kathryne, Thank you for your email. I was very happy with the service that I got from Owner Direct V R. It was extremely prompt and I appreciated the call from the property owner/manager. In my case I was doing a lot of research about the different parts of Tuscany and was therefore trying to get a feel for Villa availability at the same time. In the end we decide that we wanted to base ourselves in a different part of Tuscany and hence did not proceed with this villa. I would have no hesitation in recommending your organization to others and will certainly contact you should we visit Italy and Europe again."
Kind regards, Genista

"Our family just returned from a 10 day vacation a Disney World booked through OwnerDirect. I must say, I was pretty impressed. I had tried contacting other perspective owners for rental units with little success. Your communication skills, friendly service and lightning fast responses ensures you that we will definitely be returning. I have already been spreading the good word, 'OwnerDirect is the only way to go!' Keep up the good work, ChadB, CoryR, KristaH & CathyJ"

Hilary, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
"Thank you so much for your attention to my request. At this was my first time using Owner Direct, I was truly impressed by your quick response in providing me with answers to my questions regarding the property and following up. At my end, I had made a second inquiry on another property (on another website) at the same time and was waiting for their response, in order to have the information I needed to make a final decision on where to stay. In the end, our decision came down to price certain amenities that will better meet our needs, and this time, we chose the second property. Now that I am familiar with Owner Direct, in the future, I know to expect prompt, professional service and will go there /first/ for my vacation rental needs. In addition, we will continue to refer friends and family to you, over and above others with whom we've dealt with. Until next time, I wish you continued success, "
Amy, Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Wendy, Tazmainia, Australia
"You all have been superb! Trust me. I have received poor to no feedback so many times that I was becoming despondent. I will write any type of favorable review of your company that you want. I read these type of comments. I think that they help. I trust the property based on your responses ....actually, the owners should know how impressive you are. Again, I will do what I can. I would certainly entrust any property I would ever acquire to your company. Sorry for the long comment but it is very comforting to see your kind and thoughtful responses."
John, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

"Yes, thank you - I spoke with Sherri today (who was very helpful) and we've booked a place. I would also like to say that I really just stumbled onto your website by accident while searching out vacation spots and I've been very impressed with it. I checked out a few other owner vacation websites, and yours is far and away the clearest, most user friendly website with the most comprehensive information. Add to that the fact that I've received excellent customer service and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your company to anyone looking to book a vacation accommodation. Thanks."
Thank you for the update. Since we have kids activities through out the day you might not be able to reach us by phone. I will check our e-mail whenever we are home. As I understand the ball is in your court until you contact the owner. Could you please instruct me what should be my next step. Thank you again for your help. I've dealt with owner direct in the past and every time you gave us the exceptional service. I am happy to be your customer again. Cheers !"
Zorana, Vancouver, BC, Canada
"The reason I did not complete the transaction was because of my own personal circumstances and absolutely nothing to do with your service which I found faultless. I consider myself fortunate to have found your site and hope to be using it frequently in the future. I really can offer no suggestions as to how it could be improved, it answered all my needs admirably. You may be interested to learn that the people from your office who I spoke to were unfailingly pleasant, helpful and agreeable, in fact, they were so engaging that I felt bad for not being in a position to be able to finalize the transaction. They all came across as very nice people, and gave me every consideration. If I am treated in the same manner the next time I contact you I will be quite content, I consider it a pleasure to do business with you . Thanks for your help."
Jane, Seattle, Washington
