US-based Family holidays online marketplace Vacatia has begun its international rollout by adding 20 resorts in Mexico.
The resorts in Cancun and Cabo include Vacatia’s first all-inclusive property and takes the number of destinations it serves to 14.
Vacatia specialises in bringing holiday rental stock into the market that previously was only available in the real estate, timeshare and fractional ownership sectors.
It targets families looking for the flexibility of an apartment, private home or villa but who want the services and facilities of a hotel or resort.
The site already offers resorts in Maui, Kauai, Oahu, Big Island, Orlando, Pensacola, Panama City, Destin, Daytona Beach, Myrtle Beach, Branson, and Phoenix/Scottsdale.
Caroline Shin, chief executive and co-founder of Vacatia, said: “Family travel is exploding and we built Vacatia with the belief that resort residences are simply the best accommodation for vacationing families, offering both the space of a home and services of a hotel.
“We are happy to continually make more instantly bookable choices available to our guests, whom we endeavour to treat ‘like family’.”
Vacatia now offers more than 300 selected professionally managed resort-condominium complexes for rental.
To date resorts and owners offering their resort residences as vacation rentals have been limited to primarily marketing their resort residences via brokers, ad listingsites, or travel/hotel sites.
Vacatia offers a Guest Care information service online or over the phone, answering questions guests may have about resorts, residences, amenities, or nearby activities.
Guest Care also handles large group and special requests, as well as confirming accommodation details with the resorts.
