The Right Guests
Simplify Your Life
No Risk Proposition
Why should I work with Orange Octopus to market my vacation home?
Quite simply, Orange Octopus is the most effective way to maximize the return on your valued vacation home investment. We’ll help you generate incremental revenue and more bookings by introducing your property to luxury clientele who might not otherwise hear about your beautiful home.
We employ a world-class team of more than 20 experts in SEO, PPC, social media and web design. And our email campaigns reach over 500,000 discerning customers, all looking for their next great vacation experience! As a member of the Orange Octopus collection, we’ll provide you with unprecedented reach and exposure to the discerning luxury travellers you seek.
And you’ll appreciate that we bring a turnkey booking solution to your door. Unlike other listing sites, we handle all the guest queries, bookings, payments and travel details on your behalf. Imagine how this could simplify your life and how much free time you would gain!
What makes Orange Octopus different from other vacation listing sites?
For starters, Orange Octopus is not a listing site. Quite the opposite actually – we’re picky (aka selective) and we look at our portfolio as a curated collection as opposed to a subscription-based list. We’re a fully-integrated luxury hospitality company. From a guest perspective, we help our clients select and plan their trips from A to Z, including full concierge services. And for our homeowners, we take care of all the details – building your page on our site, finding the guests through our extensive online marketing, handling reservations and secure payments on your behalf, and managing the daily communication and questions from our guests before, during and after their stay. We make it very easy to do business with us!
Our only focus is the luxury vacation space, and we select only the finest properties to be part of the exclusive Orange Octopus Collection. Our guests trust that their Orange Octopus experience will be second to none because our homes are hand-picked and inspected in advance. Our homeowners appreciate the prestige of being part of such a distinguished collection.
With a guest repeat rate over 40% and a 94% satisfaction rate, our guests keep coming back again and again. Our homeowners therefore trust that we’ll bring the right type of guest to their door.
We don’t charge any subscription or “listing” fees to homeowners. For that matter, we don’t charge guests any fees either. Our model is based on the principle that we’re only happy if our homeowners and guests are happy.
How much does it cost to work with Orange Octopus?
We believe in a pay-for-performance model. You pay a commission based on the dollar value of the booking that we send you – and nothing more. There are no upfront membership fees or set-up costs to work with us. In fact, we take care of everything that’s needed to showcase your property online – including professional copywriting and ensuring that your photography looks stunning.
Then, once your property is live on our site, you will be included in our extensive email and web-based campaigns as well as our third party marketing initiatives, also at no cost to you.
How does Orange Octopus work with me and my guests?
Our Homeowner Experience team provides you with all the necessary tools to be successful. They are available to assist with any questions you may have and are eager to offer suggestions on how to maximize opportunities for your property.
Our team of Villa Specialists carefully matches each guest with the destination and property that best fits their needs. When a guest selects your home, you simply confirm the availability and we’ll do the rest. We’ll coordinate all the paperwork and will secure payments with the guest. We’ll keep you updated at every stage of the process and will ensure that you receive payment for each booking in advance of the travel date.
Guests are assigned a personal concierge, so pre-arrival planning and communication is also managed by us, significantly freeing up your time and resources. We continue to stay in touch with our guests, as they travel to your destination and during their stay, we also provide additional support should they – or you – require it.
How does Orange Octopus choose new properties?
We adhere to a rigorous set of standards when evaluating a potential home. Only the finest properties are selected to be part of the exclusive Orange Octopus Collection.
All properties under consideration are reviewed by a committee of Orange Octopus executives and Villa Specialists who understand what our discerning guests are seeking. After evaluation, we accept fewer than 5% of homes.
Our vacation partners:
- Are located in magnificent destinations and exclusive locations,
- Reflect an exquisite sense of design and style and
- Represent luxurious “home away from home” experiences, inside and out.
If this sounds like we are describing your vacation home, we would love to hear from you!
Note, only a select number of properties will be invited to join the collection in any given destination. By limiting the number of properties we ensure that each of our vacation rental partners receives the exposure and attention it deserves.
How do I apply to the Orange Octopus Collection?
Please tell us more about your vacation home by completing our online form. It is particularly important to include your website details, if you have one. Should your property fit the criteria we are seeking in your destination, a Market Manager will reach out to you to discuss how we might partner up. If your vacation home is located in a destination which is not currently offered by Orange Octopus, we’ll save your details for future consideration.
