If you happen to have gathered a lot of great reviews for the rentals you manage, HomeAway now provides the opportunity to leverage your reviews on their sites.

The only restriction is that HomeAway does not want reviews captured on other listing sites like Airbnb or TripAdvisor, so please refrain from using those reviews in the review manager.

All the reviews created on Hostfully (through the Hostfully pages or coming from your websites and added manually, or added via the Review API) will be candidates for upload to HomeAway:

When you're ready to get your review up on HomeAway-VRBO (all all their affiliate sites), head to the HomeAway management page and toggle ON the "Synchronize Reviews" button, as below:

Once turned on, your reviews will be synchronized to the HomeAway sites (their review crawler visits a couple times a day and synchronizes new reviews), and will shortly be displayed on your listing pages, as below: 

Note that the review will show the title, rating, date submitted, the stay date and will list your property management company as the source of the review.

See also the article on Capturing and Managing Reviews for more details about the topic.
