In your listing you get

  • All the benefits of advertising without the hassles. We do comprehensive marketing and advertising, on and off the web, so you don't have to.
  • Inclusion in a dedicated web site specializing in Michigan vacation rental properties; cottages, cabins, resorts, rentals, inns, bed and breakfasts, motels, hotels and private homes.
  • You're busy and we know that. We'll list your property for you! Let us do all the work for a one-time charge of $50 (plus the annual subscription rate of $125). Simply print off this form and mail it to us, or email us at, and we will have you listed within days.
  • The ability to edit your property information at any time, and to see your updates instantly.
  • Low annual rate of $125.00 per year with multiple property discounts. Please see below for more details.
  • We have an 85% property owner renewal rate.

  • Email a friend feature. Let your visitors send your property to all of their friends with this great feature.
  • Results from a high volume of traffic - rentalbug is registered with all the major search engines and we advertise on pertinent web sites.
  • Great customer service. Simply send an email to and we'll help you anyway we can.
  • Your own web page with photos, property description, contact info, and a Guest Book where your customers can talk about how great your rental is for others to read.
  • Already have a website? Great, we'll link to it at no extra charge. Renters can find all the information you want them to on your site and it helps your website in the search engines.

For just $10.42 a month, your one-year subscription is a lot less than advertising for a few months in several newspapers. Plus, you'll get everything a web site can offer that a classified newspaper can't - your own interactive web page, photos, email, guests comments. Listing your vacation rental on is a fraction of the cost, reaches a lot more people, and is year 'round.

What our property owners are saying about us

“ What's different and exciting about the newly revamped Rentalbug website many property owners and guests to the site may be wondering? First and foremost is a tech savvy web management team with a truly customer-based focus and people on the team who genuinely want the site to work in everyone's favor. My personal interactions with Ruth have been informative and always timely in helping me to understand the team's make-over of the site - especially the eagerly anticipated availability calendar and the addition of color text and link connectivity. Secondly, many people will realize right away that this site management group wants Rentalbug to be outstanding in helping to bring people together to help both property owners and guests match up their searches for first rate Michigan vacation rentals. Try Rentalbug if you haven't already and you will be very happy to see how easy and informative the site proves to be if you want to find a place that will get the family excited about summertime travel in PURE MICHIGAN. ”

Gary Sinar (Rentalbug member since 2008)

“I can't believe that the day after I listed my property I received a call. I really cannot believe the volume of seekers that have visited my web page.”

Sandy - Caseville Cottage

“I added my property Sun night and by Tuesday I had already received an inquiry!”

Katie - Sleeping Bear Dunes Cottage

“I love your site. I have gotten so many calls and emails regarding our cottage. I have guests coming from as far away as Colorado and Arizona. Thank you for giving us this great vehicle.”

Dave - Broomswept Too cottage in Silver Lake

“It took me seconds to decide to renew our cottage's listing with Rentalbug. More rentals and inquiries came in via Rentalbug this past year than any other source. For someone in search of a cottage in Michigan, no other web source loads as quickly and contains as much useful information, including pictures.”

Sandy - Adventure Inn Bed and Breakfast and Sandy Cottage

“What a great response we have had with Rental Bug. It is amazing the number of e-mails we have had. Thanks so much for such a great web site.”

Jane - Sandy Beach Getaway

“Several guests have mentioned how easy your site is to navigate (a huge web advantage.) And most are finding us by doing a Google search for "cabin and cottage rentals in Michigan." So great job on getting the site posted well. Overall we are very pleased with and are telling everyone we can.”

Kathy - Studio North Guest Suites

“I also wanted to tell you how pleased we are with your service. We have already rented The Beach House in St. Ignace for a week and we have only been on line for 2 days. We're astatic. Thank you for your help in all of this.”

Raymond and Stephanie - The Beach House

“First let me say everything was super easy to set-up and get going over the net, and with just the normal listing we have had over 20 hits and 3 emails about the property in just 24 hours.”
