The Roost Austin Difference: Why Savvy Travelers Book with Roost

Booking Travel

When it comes to choosing a vacation rental (VR) in Austin, Texas, there are a ton of options out there. Choices range from professional vacation rentals to hosted apartments, amateur VRs, and home shares. And there are so many questions to answer when shopping for a VR: Is this space a good value for price and location? Can this space accommodate my group comfortably? What amenities are offered? Booking with Roost Austin cuts through the noise to bring you spaces that will enhance your stay, whether you are traveling for business or fun! 

Types of Vacation Rentals

Here in Austin, you will find three main types of vacation rentals: professional VRs, amateur VRs, and hosted apartments. So what’s the difference? Hosted apartments are units in apartment buildings that are operated en masse by a management company. These are often bare-bones rentals targeted towards business travelers on a budget or large groups willing to squeeze into a small space. Personal touches are far and few between and communication may be outsourced. Amateur VRs can range from a homeowner renting out their spare bedroom, renting out their entire home on a part-time basis, or a host learning the ropes of vacation rentals. These can be great spaces with lots of personal touches, but come with the quirks of a home that someone else lives in regularly or inefficiencies as the host is learning. Finally, there are professional VRs. The mark of a professional VR is one that is operated by experienced hosts that create a seamless guest experience. The booking and check-in process is smooth and easy, the space is well-designed and clean, and customer service is excellent and accessible. Roost Austin only hosts professional VRs and prides ourselves in being one of the premier vacation property managers in Austin.
