How to Join
First, and foremost, you have to be the direct owner of a short term vacation rental cabin in the Grand Circle. We will be covering primarily the range between Bryce, Zion, Page, Moab, Sedona, Kanab, Flagstaff, and the Grand Canyon.
There are just 4 simple steps to add your Property to our listing site.
1. Be an Active OwnerRez Client. -
OwnerRez is a Property Management Software that allows you to fully manage your property on both the OTA's and on your own direct site. The Widgets we use on this site are provided free of charge by them to us their customers. Their widgets are the magic that makes this site possible!
Login to OwnerRez and Request to Join here.
2. Have your own direct book site. -
As an OwnerRez customer you can either use their widgets to build your own site or you can use their OwnerRez Hosted Website Service. Either way hopefully we can help send customers that are tired of paying the additional fees required by the OTA's (Online Travel Agencies) to your direct booking site.
3. Have at least 5 Reviews with a 4.5+ Star Average. -
Reason for this is as you will see in the next step all our members will be referring customers to other members of this listing site. So we want to ensure that we have high quality hosts so that people who found a cabin through this site will have a positive experience and hopefully recommend us to others so that the site grows and is more beneficial for all members.
4. Have a mutual referral page on your direct site -
The whole theory behind this site is that there is enough STR business to go around. Some may say we should consider each other competitors, and stay separate. However we feel there is more strength in forming this alliance. If we share guests with one another, so that when we do not have availability that guest can easily find a similar option, then in the end, the love will get spread around to all. Also with more backlinks to the page it will increase SEO and further drive the exposure of the site which will in turn benefit each member. A referral page is a win/win for every member. Doesn't have to anything fancy. Could be as simple as a button that says click here to see more cabins. Here is an example of the page I created on my site.
For the first year, I have paid for the hosting fee, in the future, we may ask for a small donation to share the cost
If you have an OwnerRez Hosted Website, here is a walkthrough of how to add a Custom Page

After you have paid your subscription and requested membership, please allow 48-72 hours for an admin to confirm your Review averages and your Mutual Referral Page.
