How much does Hawaii Chee cost to hosts?Inquiries are free for now as we have not yet started our pay-by-performance charging. Even when we are charging, your first inquiry will be free. After your first, we will ask you to choose either a Pay-Per-Inquiry or Pay-Per-Booking plan, or you can choose to not list on the Hawaii Chee site. If your listings are not on our site but are on VRBO or Airbnb, they will still appear on Hawaii Chee as meta-listings with links to VRBO or Airbnb.

The pay-by-performance rates on Hawaii Chee will equate to about 5.5% of the booking value on the Pay-Per-Booking plan. That compares to an overall take-rate of 15-20% on VRBO and Airbnb. In short, we bring your rental to market at a very attractive rate and all without getting in your way!

How much does VR30.rent cost to hosts?VR30 will have no fees. You'll get inquiries. How will VR30 make money? VR30 will be sponsored by Sterman Realty, and Sterman's listings will show at the top of sorts. Having enough listings on the site makes it useful for travelers.
When will VR30 be showing listings? Here's the VR30 roadmap:
  1. A simple directory of all listings on the site links to fully functional listings, just like those shown on HawaiiChee.com (www.hawaiichee.com/users/stermanrealty).
  2. Later, we'll have full search capabilities, like searching on HawaiiChee.com for Oahu: www.hawaiichee.com/listings/usa/hawaii/oahu
Richard's Story

Richard Sterman has been building VR30.rent since 2013 with the idea of creating a master directory of all the legal, non-vacation-rental-permitted, 30-day listings so that travelers would easily find right 30-day rentals for their visits. The lack of enforcement on Oahu resulted in no interest in legal rentals. The big listing sites like VRBO.com and Airbnb.com hosted the majority of the listings.

On August 1st, 2019, Bill 89 passed and became law. Oahu hosts had to switch to 30 minimum stays, but the big listings sites don't attract many visitors interested in doing 30+ day stays. The owners and managers need an alternative marketing source.

Richard gets back into high gear with building VR30.rent, but realizes that it's tough to build good technology.

Common friends introduce Richard to Justin Gordon who founded ShakaCode.com, a company that focuses on building sites like VR30.rent. ShakaCode has also been its own vacation rental site, HawaiiChee.com, since 2015.

It immediately became clear to both of them that they should partner up!

So Richard has joined Hawaii Chee as the “Manager of Oahu Operations,” responsible for building the Oahu and overall Hawaii inventory for Hawaii Chee (and VR30.rent).
