I had the chance to get away on a warm holiday this past January.  We stayed in Bucerias Mexico.  It was the perfect destination because I could both relax with my family and experience some amazing road rides.  I found a tour and bike rental outfit called Bici Bucerias.  They hooked me up with a bike and gave me personal tours of the roads in the area.  Once familiar with the ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ of road riding in rural Mexico, I set off on my own.  The highways are without a proper shoulder but found the drivers to be courteous and willing to share the road.  I didn’t experience any ‘close calls.’  Overall the highways are in very good shape.  The scenery is stunning.

VRBO Bucerias - Vacation Rental by Owner Bucerias

Why rent directly by owner and NOT VRBO?

We were a dedicated customer of VRBO for many years. We recently decided to let all of our listings expire because of their policy changes. One of the key changes was that they decided to punish VRBO owners who did not opt to do direct payments. What does this mean? Well, essentially, if we wanted to deal directly with the client, which was the heart of what VRBO originally stood for - a platform for owners to deal direct with renters and renters to deal direct with owners - we would receive zero support from VRBO. As an owner we paid an annual fee to list our property and that was the only expense. Now, VRBO / Home Away has implemented changes where we not only pay a higher fee to list or properties, but if we opt out of the direct payment option (where clients pay Home Away and Home Away / VRBO pays the owners), our listings basically disappear and the algorithm pushes them to the bottom of a client's search. Here is an excerpt from Home Away:

"The service fee is a fee charged to the traveler and is calculated on a sliding scale of 4% to 9% of the rental amount, excluding the deposit or taxes. The charge applies to the cost of the rental and will not exceed $499. The service fee helps cover the cost of running the HomeAway websites, including features such as 24/7 customer support and marketing efforts to ensure a quality experience on our sites for both travelers and owners. When you book and pay through HomeAway, you are eligible for the Book with Confidence Guarantee."

So essentially, on top of the rent that you are paying, you will need to pay a fee of up to 9% of the vacation rental. As a past user of VRBO for all of our own vacation stays, we think this is completely unfair. 

What is the answer when looking for a VRBO Bucerias Vacation Rental?

Well... don't go on VRBO. Do your own research. Look for owners who have been in business for several years and have a solid reputation. When you book with us at maraVillaNayarit.com you can rest assure that your vacation experience will be pleasantly awesome! 

Whether you choose the traditional charm of Victoria Villas with its large shared pool, comfortable loungers and covered palapa or the new and more contemporary maraVilla Bucerias, you will enjoy all the comforts we have to offer.  Our developments are more than just vacation properties – they are immersed in the local neighbourhoods. All of our locations are within a block to the awesome Bucerias beach, coffee shops, restaurants, local shops and the Art District.  Come see and feel the magic!
