Has anyone seen or put a scan on VRBO, AirBNB or anything similar? I would love to see how it looks if possible. Thanks!

Hey @alx3D, like others here on the forum I've tried to reach out to VRBO and AirBnB in hopes of getting any info re: the status of integrating Matterport with their offerings. Also like the others, I've come up empty handed.

Interestingly though, at some point in the semi-recent past VRBO quietly introduced a "Virtual Tour" option some time ago and they accept links from "thesphere.com" to populate this tabbed content.

I own/manage two properties on VRBO so I went ahead and added this content (using a Richo Theta camera and 'thesphere.com') just because the option was there (see attached image)....but it would be SO much better if VRBO/HOMEAWAY would enable support for Matterport Models.




Otherwise...you can still provide a link to your Matterport content, but it'll just be a text link buried deep below all of the other content on your VRBO page.

Side note, analytics tip, and self promotion
Using my WP3D Models plugin I created a second entry for this model, just for use on this link at VRBO. Since I don't have that specific model linked from anywhere else I'm able to track traffic that comes JUST From this (totally buried) VRBO link. While I'm proud of this unique feature in my plugin, I'm sad to say that the link gets very little traffic.

We should believe that eventually they will come around - but not soon enough for me. Perhaps we need a grassroots campaign that causes demand to come directly from the owners of the listings who should now this is a value adding feature. How to do that is the question.
