Based in Sydney, HomeAway.com.au launched in July 2011 following the acquisition of realholidays.com.au from the REA Group. The group has the largest and most diverse selection of holiday homes around the world, with more than 1 million properties across 190 countries.
HomeAway connects homeowners and property managers with travellers who seek the space, value and amenities of holiday rental homes as an alternative to hotels. With detailed property descriptions, photos and list of amenities and nearby attractions, HomeAway is a one-stop website that makes it easy to find and compare properties all over the world. The site features thousands of reviews where travellers compare the accuracy of a listing to a property they have rented through the site.
