If there’s anything Aussies have learnt over the past couple of years, it’s that a holiday in our own beautiful backyard is as blissful as anywhere else in the world. But with the benefit of a whole lot less travel time!

It means holidaymakers are looking for sweet places to stay closer to home – so if you own a holiday home, there’s never been a better time to list it for guest bookings.

If you’ve thought about dipping your toe into the holiday rental listing pond, but have been put off by the red tape, and the amount of money going to the booking platform, there’s a very happy alternative! Australian-owned holiday booking platform Search and Stay is a breath of fresh air – with no costs, fees or charges to you as the holiday home owner. There aren’t even any contracts.

Why choose Search and Stay?

Search and Stay

If you own a slice of the Aussie dream – a beach house, a luxury pad, a family cabin in the mountains, a farm stay accommodation, even a boathouse or city apartment, Search and Stay is THE place to advertise your holiday property.

And there are four very simple reasons why.

1. There’s no cost to you, the owner

No really, there isn’t! It’s your hard-earned property, and you should be the one keeping the coin! So Search and Stay don’t take any of your profit as the property owner. There’s no cost to list, book and manage your property. Instead, Search and Stay adds a minimal charge to each confirmed guest reservation. But for you as the property owner – there is zero cost. Cha-ching!

2. It’s easy to list your property

You’ve already done enough hard yards purchasing your holiday property, so Search and Stay wanted to keep listing your property as simple as possible. The platform has easy tools that help list your property and navigate your bookings – you’re in charge. You simply create an account, upload your property details and you’re good to go. And if you get stuck at all, the Search and Stay team are happy to help.

3. No contract and no risk

Search and Stay has a simple philosophy when it comes to listings: Your Property, Your Rules. Really, why should anyone else be deciding what happens with your property?!

There are no hidden catches, no risks and really nothing to lose!

4. Happier guests

Your guests can rest easy knowing they’re getting the best bang for their buck, because they’re not paying inflated fees and booking costs. And there’s something to be said for that warm fuzzy feeling guests get, knowing that the home owner is getting all the benefit of their hard work.

Search and Stay has all the clout of an international booking platform, with the undeniable charm of a local, Australian business. Search and Stay really is the happiest way to list your holiday rental. If you’re keen to start smiling and taking bookings for your property, head to Search and Stay.

  • I think we all feel we need a holiday after all we have been through over the last two years, but I want it in Australia there are a few places I still want to see.


  • This sounds like a great idea! I know with air bnb, there are a lot of hidden costs/criteria etc. This is great not only for the owner, but those hiring off the owner as well. might have to investigate this for our next family holiday


  • Love having More options! Good to know


  • Very interesting. I’m going to check out this site, not to I rent my property but yo search for holiday homes to rent. Hadn’t heard of it before.


  • have been saying even before Covid that they should stay in Australia as we have many great places to visit and better for them also out tourist spots. They say they want to sit by the pool and drink which if that’s what trey want they can do the same here.


  • Dont have a holiday house, but sounds like a good idea when I am looking for somewhere to stay with my family. Thanks for the info!!


  • This sounds like a great alternative to what is out there in the market. Don’t have a holiday home, but would be trying this if I did.


  • I’d need to get a holiday house first but it’s nice to know there is a great site if I ever want to stay somewhere and money goes to the owners who do all the work anyway. Will definitely be letting all my friends know about this site.
