Listing Verification

In order to strive for a trusted vacation rental marketplace, we accept only the following marketplace site urls for verification purposes:

Airbnb - Homeaway sites - Expedia sites - Booking - Tripadvisor - Vrbo

These urls will of course NOT be shown on your Houfy listing and ONLY be used for verification purposes.

Links to your Homepages, Facebook, Google are also allowed and will be shown on your listing. We need to find your name clearly on these sites to be able to verify.

Verification is done manually a few times a day. If you did not get verified please send us your latest utility bill to:

Log in > Click on Menu > Select Manage Listings > Edit Listing

Select Verifications and paste your Airbnb/VRBO listing URL in the box.

Houfy does not accept the following links for verification purposes as Houfy simply does not know their verification procedures:

  • USA: vhrnetwork - vhrdirect - connectingrentals - tripz - breakawayvacationrentals - turnkey
  • Alabama: alabamavacationhomerentals
  • California: calivacationrentalsbyowner
  • Carolina: carolinavacationhomerentals
  • Colorado: covacationhomes
  • Florida: floridarentals - floridarentalbyowners - 30ahomerentals - ECBYO
  • Georgia: georgiarentbyowner
  • Hawaii: hawaiianislandsvacationrentals - Hawaiichee
  • Michigan/Wisconsin: glrbo
  • Nevada: nevadarbo
  • New England: vacationnewengland
  • New York: newyorkrentalbyowner
  • Texas: texescapes
  • Tennessee: tnrbo
  • Utah: utrbo
  • Virginia: vavacationrentals
  • USVI:

For those of us that are seeking to use Houfy as our website for our rental and wish to not be on the Airbnbs of the world you are making it very difficult.

Hi Kimberly, you can send Houfy a latest utility bill and your listing will promptly be verified. We verify 4-6 times daily manually. -

Hello, I emailed my power bill to that email address several days ago but still have not been verified. Is Houfy still doing this??

Thank you so much for doing this. As a co-admin on a FB site for New England rentals, we have experienced some scamming and strive to do everything we can to verify owners. It has been a challenge for us and we are quite dismayed at how many people do not heed our efforts or advice to cooperate with our group rules which only protects everyone.
