We are on the hunt for like-minded, select owners and managers committed to providing guests with a quality vacation experience. If you own a licensed vacation rental and want to be involved in the rental process, start hosting and earn more rental income, come join us! It's easy! List your vacation rental property on Florida Rental By Owners today.
We aren't like other directories, we are a network of Owners who created FLARBO to help other owners and short term property managers regain control of their hosting cycle. We advertise to a targeted audience of travelers specifically interested in Florida and niche vacations found in the Florida area. Join thousands of other Florida hosts just like you and start renting out your home to garner more income. You keep complete control of your rental process.
All inquiries are sent directly to owners or property managers who take the reins and provide the kind of customer service right from the first point of contact with a traveler.
Owners and property managers use their own booking software having the ability to manage the "old-fashioned" way by actually talking with a traveler on the phone if they wish! There are no communication blocks. If you don't have your own booking software you can use your own secure payment methods like a credit card processor (like Stripe) or a secure money transfer option (like Paypal). We can also recommend great software to help you manage your vacation rentals by owner business.
We provide Florida travelers security knowing that each listed property is a legal rental, well-maintained, meeting vacation rental requirements for rent by Owners that care about their experience, treating them with respect and professionalism. Expect to provide documentation of ownership when you upload your property.
WE DO NOT take any fees from travelers for using our site. We are proud to use the #BookDirect model saving the traveler anywhere from 6 - 20%, as is required by big listing sites. Owner's rentals may appear on multiple sites but savvy travelers know that booking by owner home rentals directly with the Owner always give them the best rate.
We're a young but successful company and need more properties! We have a high demand for areas where there are currently no properties listed. Once you list and register your vacation rental property and pass the owner verification process your city/location will be automatically opened up and immediately searchable. We get called and messaged daily from travelers looking for placement!
Our NO FEES - BOOK DIRECT business model saves vacation rental owners and hosts anywhere from 5 - 20% per booking commissions as seen on large online travel agencies. Save yourself the fees by listing on FLARBO! Don't let other listing sites take more and more of your hard-earned rental income.

Why should I list my property on Florida Rental by Owners?
Listing on Florida Rental By Owners makes it easy to earn rental income. We are Florida vacation rental owners with experience in both marketing and property management. We can offer you what the large online travel agency sites cannot, personal attention and targeted marketing to travelers who frequent Florida for their vacations. We have multiple niche vacation types that suit unique homes such as boat-friendly rentals, snowbird monthly rentals, rentals near theme parks, condo-hotel resort rentals, beachfront rentals, pet-friendly, budget-friendly rentals, island rentals, boat accommodations and more!
What do I get with my listing?
Every listing comes with everything you need to start renting your property and earning income, including room for 24-50 high-resolution photos, interactive map, and synced reservation calendar. Text message notification of inquiries. Third party price comparison exposure. Once you sign up, you can start to build your listing, enter your rates... and get bookings!
Can I control who rents my home?
Yes. You are always in charge of who rents and stays in your home. Every inquiry and booking request comes to you. You can talk to the traveler to find out more about them and make sure they're a good fit for your property. And, we do not penalize you for not accepting a booking. Sometimes the fit between renters and homeowners is just not right.
Do I have to use Online Booking?
No. All bookings must be made by the owner or property manager. Using your own payment platform allows you to optimize your vacation rental business and save yourself hundreds of dollars in processing fees. It's another benefit of listing with FlaRBO. If you don't have a booking platform or channel manager yet ask us for options, we are happy to make recommendations for our owners. Contact Us.
What types of properties can I advertise?
Acceptable rental properties include houses, condos, and villas, as well as tiny houses, barns, boats, bungalows, cabins, cottages, elevated homes, beach houses, estates, mansions, apartments, and private islands. We do not list properties that are renting out rooms or partial homes. After all, we are not an Airbnb-type website nor do we want to be.
We have API Integration with multiple award winning property management software giving busy property managers the automation that they need for their vacation rental business. Whether you manage five or several hundred vacation properties, grow and scale your business with integrations that make your life easier. Take advantage of automated messaging, capture guest contact details, and save on our book direct listing site to take your vacation rental business to the next profitable level. Find out more about our software integration here.
NO RISK GUARANTEE
100% Satisfaction Guaranteed. If you do not receive at least 5 inquiries within the first year leading to a booking we will extend your listing for free.
Guaranteeing you a positive cash-flow and a great return on your investment!
