HomeAway Owners Offer Vacation Properties to Wildfire Evacuees
Looking for Temporary Home Rentals



Austin-based HomeAway, Inc. has organized a Central Texas Wildfire Housing Directory of vacation homes available for rent, some at reduced rates or free of charge, to evacuees in need of housing. For HomeAway’s Central Texas Wildfire Housing Directory go to: http://community.homeaway.com/docs/DOC-2067

HomeAway customers who list Austin-area properties on its U.S. vacation rental sites HomeAway.com, VRBO.com and VacationRentals.com volunteered to offer their rentals to evacuees.

Fully-furnished homes can be rented for short- and long-term stays. Individuals should contact the owners directly; more information is available on the site.
