Why should you use Owners Direct to book your holiday property?
Owners Direct objective is simple; the majority of its listings are advertised by the owner direct and Owners Direct puts you in touch with them and cut out the middle man. When you book directly with the owner, you will experience the very best in:
Enjoy a more personal service by booking directly with an owner. Learn the history behind the property, the very best of everything in the area, and how to make the most of your holiday when staying at their holiday homes. Who better to give you advice about how to holiday in their property than the owner?
Value for Money
Booking direct with the owner bypasses the need for agents, who usually take a cut of the rental income. This allows the owners to pass the savings on to you in the form of lower prices.
Prices are usually calculated by renting the entire property rather than by room or by person making larger villas very cost effective.
Travellers retain much more flexibility by booking directly with the owner. Checking in and out times are not as structured as you would find in a hotel.
Because most villas are self catered, you can dine in when you like. Unlike travel package tours, flights and transfers can be booked at your own convenience, often based on recommendations from property owners.
Compared to hotels, a private holiday villa or apartment gives you far more space and privacy. Search by bedroom number to find a property just right for your holiday party - whether you are looking for an intimate apartment for two or a large villa to accommodate your extended family.

You can choose a holiday to suit your requirements exactly. Want to take your pets on holiday? Want to make sure you can stay online? Need a heated pool to keep the children happy? Have friends coming to stay for part of the week? The world is your holiday with Owners Direct.
