Vacation rentals: Starter guide overview

Before getting started, learn more about vacation rentals on Google and how we classify lodging inventory types.

Note: If you fall into the hotels category, follow our Hotels starter guide instead.

You can list vacation rentals on Google if you are:

  • A registered property management business with a direct booking website
  • Already listed on a booking site that's integrated with vacation rentals on Google

Shared rooms, partial houses, and peer-to-peer rentals aren’t currently eligible for integration.
