Austin-based HomeAway, Inc. (NASDAQ: AWAY) has organized a directory of vacation homes available for rent, many at reduced rates or free of charge, to those in need of housing due to the devastation caused by Superstorm Sandy. HomeAway® customers with properties located on the eastern seaboard listed on U.S. vacation rental sites HomeAway.com®, VRBO.com℠ and VacationRentals.com℠ as well as innkeepers on BedandBreakfast.com® have volunteered to offer their rentals to evacuees.

Fully furnished homes are available for short- and long-term stays. For the list of available homes and more information visit: http://community.homeaway.com/groups/hurricane-sandy. Individuals must contact managers of the properties directly.

Owners and property managers may also utilize the HomeAway Community™ site to connect with each other to discuss the latest news on the storm and share advice and resources.

“We greatly appreciate the overwhelming compassion of our customers who are helping to provide the stability of a comfortable home during such a difficult time,” says Brian Sharples, HomeAway co-founder and chief executive officer.
