"I am enjoying using your site with its ease of use and no booking fees for guest. With the Industry adding more and more fees (on both sides) and forgetting how they got so large, ie us owners, its refreshing to have a platform to advertise where they keep us in mind. I have gotten several reservations for our condos and know it will continue to grow thru word of mouth. As an owner myself, I really appreciate the enhancement to watermark our photos. Very simple to do and if you are unsure, Susan will assist you to get it done. I had my photos stolen off another site and created a new listing to scam guests on Craigs list of all places. I will use every tool I can find to prevent this again. The watermark does not hinder the ability to see the photo but because my name is front and center, no one will want to right click and save. After asking, Susan was also able to disable the right click and save from a computer (doesn't work on a tablet or mobile device though) . Thank you for all you are doing to help all rental property owners in the area maximize our earning potential. Being such a young business I have high hopes this can become a games changer for all of us in the future." - Kathy G., June 24, 2018 See Kathy's Listings Here
"We listed our Orange Beach condo, Silver Beach 803 as a vacation rental about 9 months ago. We have had a great response with inquiries and bookings and will continue to list our property here. They are heavily marketing in the Alabama region and promoting in multiple areas. Susan is very responsive to questions and issues." - Brenda B., September 25, 2018 See Brenda's Listing Here
"Some of my nicest guests have reserved through ALAVHR. This site is great for them as they don't have to pay a reservation fee and for me because it lets me correspond with them without having to go through a "middle man." I believe ALAVHR is doing a great job and look forward to a long and successful relationship with them." Linda G. July 5, 2018 See Linda's Listings Here
