HomeAway Acquires BedAndBreakfast.com & Inns.com for Undisclosed Sum

4

Inns.com & BedAndBreakfast.com HomeawayTechCrunch is reporting that HomeAway has acquired BedAndBreakfast.com for an undisclosed sum. HomeAway is a vacation rental company that operates a number of web properties, including VacationRentals.com, VRBO.com, and several other popular websites. Homeaway has close to a half a billion dollars in funding.

BedAndBreakfast.com is a website featuring over 10,000 bed and breakfast properties found throughout the world. The website provides reservation services and reviews of its listed bed and breakfasts. According to Compete, the website receives over 370,000 unique visitors per month.

In addition to the BedAndBreakfast.com property, I spoke with a representative at BedAndBreakfast.com who confirmed that HomeAway also acquired Inns.com as part of the deal. Inns.com is similar to BedAndBreakfast.com, but it caters to clients looking for inns rather than bed and breakfasts. According to Compete, Inns.com receives somewhere around 10,000 unique visitors per month.

Both companies are based in Austin, Texas.

    Elliot,

    I think HomeAway wants BedandBreakfast.com’s technology to roll out to the Vacation Rental Market. It is easier to buy than build!

    BedandBreakfast.com not only has a robust fee-based listings platform, they also have a property management system (Rezovation) built for B&Bs that would probably be perfect for VRBOs. Webervations, their booking engine, might also be good.

    This will be fun to watch. I wrote more about this at http://ow.ly/1dWI5

    The folks at HomeAway.com are not afraid to plunk down huge sums of money for quality generic domains. I’ve sold them at least 6 domains in the past for generic domains, one that comes to mind is VacationRentalSpecial.com.

    The are top notch in my book!
