How to obtain your HomeAwayConnect/VRBO Calendar Connection Info

What is HomeAway Connect? 
 


We have linked to these calendars free as a courtesy.  Now they are no longer available as separate entities.  If you have an active VRBO or HomeAway Calendar, it is possible to secure the code that will let us map you calendar to your Gulf Coast web page.

The following is information we have discovered regarding VRBO mapping

These are directions that were sent by VRBO to a web member:

Displaying your listing's availability calendar on your personal website

  1. Sign into your account.
  2. If you have more than one listing, click the one you want to edit.
  3. Click the Marketing Tools.
  4. Click Widgets.
  5. Click Learn More.
  6. Choose the orientation of the calendar - horizontal or vertical.
  7. Choose to display a one/two/three-month, or a year view of your calendar.
  8. Copy the source code (HTML code) provided .
  9. SKIP this step Add the HTML code to the source code of your website.

The source code (widget) looks like:

<div style="display:inline-block;"><iframe scrolling="no" width="592" height="1024" frameBorder="0" style="overflow:hidden;border:none" src="http://www.vrbo.com/113040/calendar?widget=true">
</iframe><a href="http://www.vrbo.com/113040" style="display:block;text-align:center;margin-top:-30px; font-size:12px;" rel="nofollow">

Best if you send a copy of the entire widget but the ID number from the source code would suffice.  In the example above, the ID number is 113040.  Your number will be different.

This is an example of the HomeAway widget:

<div style="display:inline-block;"><iframe scrolling="no" width="518" height="770" frameBorder="0" style="overflow:hidden;border:none" src="http://www.homeaway.com/haow/widgets/calendar.html?propertyId=3488579&unitId=3464343&monthCount=12&orientation=full&site=homeaway_us"></iframe></div>

 

HomeAway mapping may be accessed in a different fashion. 
Bottom line is... you need to get the mapping code and send it to us.





To send the ID number (from VRBO) or the full mapping code from HomeAway to us, click on:

Log in with your username & password
then, on the left... click on "Update Web Pages"
then select which of your web pages you are working on (in red near top of page)
then on the left...click on "Other Requests & Questions"

in the subject line...Add "Mapping to VRBO / HomeAway Calendar"
in the Request or Question box, copy in the VRBO ID number.

Or... you can send the full mapping code...
but you will need to email it to:

We will take care of the rest.
