Best Places to Advertise Your Guest Apartment in SF

I have read that certain listing services have more success in certain geographic areas.

 

Which listing services are most successful for the San Francisco vacation rental market?

 

As a San Francisco Vacation Home owner or manager, what has been our personal experience?  From which sites do you get most of your bookings?

 

Are there any offline newspapers etc that you would recommend for advertising?

 

What about putting out flyers in the neighborhood or posting business cards in laundry mats, etc.  Has that worked for you?

    Hi - Lara from Noe Place Like Home here. Thanks to those who set up this group and have kicked off conversations!

     

    We've been doing this since ~2006, and over the years have used VRBO, HomeAway, FlipKey, AirBnB, and our local paper (Noe Valley Voice). We also have a website and list it on Google Places.

     

    Currently, HomeAway is strong for us, though it has varied over the years. Flipkey is also doing well enough to make it worth renewing. AirBnB has never generated a real booking for us, which is too bad because I do like the concept. VRBO used to be strong, but has faded. The Noe Valley Voice was never particularly strong, and listing ads there is a hassle because you can't do it online (at least, not last I looked), so we don't currently advertise there.

     

    Hope that's helpful!
