Dear Fellow Vacation Rental Hosts and Guests,
The original premise of the Internet was to enable disintermediation. Sadly, this concept fell short
concerning the home sharing industry, as a handful of consolidated platforms cornered the market,
now charging annual listing fees, guest fees, host fees and even withholding taxes.
Guests and hosts have assumed the role of serf in a feudalistic ecosystem operated by a handful of
businesses who intermediate between us in our community
by creating an artificial bottleneck
consisting of a few digital bytes of code that keeps us divided and separated for long enough to be
And they call this a "sharing economy", so nobody questions why
a handful of founders and investors
while the rest of us are
fixing toilets, servicing air-conditioners and grinding new sets of keys.
Free-Rentals.com is wholly owned, managed and operated by actual vacation rental owners
platform is completely free for guests and hosts to use. We don't skim from transactions, and
we allow free communications to ensure an accommodation is a great match for both parties.
Please join me in helping to make make the "sharing economy" more about actually "sharing".
