Following up on last week's launch of Direct's integration with Google Vacation Rentals (GVR), we're happy to announce several improvements:

  • Custom domains are now supported!
  • We've started sending your guest rating from available OTA channels to Google to help improve your property's ranking in search results. These should start showing up within a week. You'll see your property's score out of five as well as the number of total reviews.
  • We're now displaying the listing status of your GVR property on the Direct Channels page. Your property will display a Pending badge while Google is reviewing it. Once your property is live on Google, you will see a green View on Google button. Click on the button to open the property's GVR landing page. If there are any problems, we will display a yellow Issues badge. Hover on the badge to see the feedback from Google.
