We love to travel.

We prefer vacation homes for their self-sufficiency and privacy. Frustratingly, we often found that reserving a vacation rental was unnecessarily tedious, or downright impossible. We experienced confusing websites, stale calendars, slow (or no) responses to inquiries, office hours, poor photos, misleading descriptions, excessive fees, and astronomical security deposits. And that’s just the reservation process! The properties themselves were sometimes wonderful, but often fell short of their potential, primarily through what we’ll call "Attention to Details".

About us david

"David Malka circa 2015 - founder of Better Vacations"

Our team at Better Vacations have a combined experience of nearly two decades in hospitality and management. Hosting guests and ensuring that they have the best experience possible is what we love to do. We put this experience and passion to work for our guests by personally setting up and managing each of our homes to ensure that every single amenity you can think of is provided for. We have a 136 step process that we go through for each property we add to ensure that we hit the mark on that goal, which is why all our properties are rated an average of 4.8 out of 5 on every single advertisement channel (VRBO, etc.). We have hosted 200,000+ guests across 35 different cities and we now offer beautiful vacation homes in France, Italy and Thailand!

We keep the reservation process simple and straightforward. Swift responses, typically within minutes, with a team that’s available 24/7. No office hours. No excessive fees. No shenanigans. The only surprises you’ll experience will be pleasant ones. As it should be.

All of our properties are professionally cleaned by highly vetted teams that have exceptional experience and attention to detail. We use high quality 1800+ thread hotel quality sheets and provide spa-like amenities such as EO soaps. As a majority of our team works from home, we understand how crucial internet is and go through great efforts to provide the highest quality, and most reliable internet packages (100mbps+).

  • A confirmation email and receipt.
