Akena Technologies has confirmed the launch of Bed and Breakfasts as a new category of rentals on its US-based vacation rental site, Media Vacation Rentals
Bed and Breakfasts differ from Vacation Rentals in that they are typically private residences, several rooms of which have been set aside for overnight guests whose paid accommodations include breakfast, and in some B&Bs, half board. Both vacation rentals and bed and breakfasts are great alternatives to standardized hotel rooms as they offer roomy, cozy and fully equipped properties for less than the price of a hotel room.
Examples of this new Bed and Breakfasts offer are for instance :
A charming 7 bedroom B&B cottage in Santiago di Compostela, Galicia, Spain. To read more about this B&B, search for listing n°41657 in the "search by Property ID" page on the website.
A lovely 3 bedroom Bed and Breakfast apartment with a view of the sea in San Remo, Liguria, Italy. To read more about this B&B, search for listing n°41613 in the "search by Property ID" page on the website. For more B&B offers, go to Media Vacation Rentals.
Akena Technologies' chief executive, Hervé Paccard explains why this new addition makes sense: In an on-going effort to provide web users with the best vacation rental by owner service possible, « Bed and Breakfasts are a essential counterpart to our vacation rental offer. Many web users, both renters and owners, requested this new category, which is now online. »
Media Vacation Rentals aims to provide one-stop solutions for both renters and owners, and, as such, the Bed and Breakfast category is a winning addition to the list of services and features already provided by Media Vacation Rentals.
The Bed and Breakfast pages, as with all Vacation Rentals pages, feature a full photo gallery, a link to a map describing the exact location of the property, directions to the property, an availability calendar, a mini-website and more.
In addition, depending on their B&B and Vacation Rental property's location, new owners may be eligible for a month or more of free advertising. Owners with properties in North America are entitled to a free listing for12 months. To find out how many months free owners in each location are eligible for, go to the site in the Owner section.
