VacayMyWay is a privately owned company with its headquarters in Denton, Texas. Started in 2019 by Jim Stewart, Ted Hight, and Billy Smith, the team at VacayMyWay is comprised of industry veterans, travellers, and hosts. A combination of talent spanning over 75 years of vacation and rental industry expertise.
VacayMyWay was created with the traveller and host in mind – lower costs for guests and more revenue for hosts, thanks to a wholesale pricing model. With a focus on unfiltered communication between guests and hosts, Vacay brings trust and transparency to vacation rental travel. Our goal is to return to the fundamentals, and joy, of planning vacations by simplifying the process.
