Directly connecting travelers with hosts for the perfect Riviera Maya stay


Have you ever come across your dream vacation home on a popular rental platform, only to be disheartened by the hefty additional fees that seem to make your dream getaway unattainable?

Have you wished for the chance to simply pay the true cost of your accommodation directly to the owner?

Those platforms won’t allow you to connect with the host privately to get a better deal…

Well, your opportunity is here: Reach out to TAO hosts directly and unlock budget-friendly accommodations at a fraction of the cost you'd find on the big rental platforms.

Welcome to TAO Direct Rentals, where your dream vacation comes true!

Direct booking advantages

On a vacation rental, your expenses should be straightforward: the nightly rate and the cleaning fee, paid directly to the host.

Did you know that when you book through a rental platform like Airbnb or VRBO, you end up paying a substantial 35% more? And shockingly, the host only receives 56% of the total you've paid.

For instance, if you book a stay valued at $1000, you're forking over an extra $350 to the rental platform, money that could be better spent on car rentals, exciting tours, or memorable dinners. After deducting fees and taxes, the platform only transfers $756 from your $1350 payment to the host. In some cases, this leaves the owner with little to no profit.

By contacting the host through, you'll pay only the $1000 from the example—nothing more—and it goes directly to the owner, with no deductions.
On this site there are no commissions or service fees on either side of the deal. It's a win-win situation for both travelers and hosts.

But there's more: When you book directly, you gain the added benefit of open communication with the owner or property manager. They know the home and the Riviera Maya area better than anyone, and they can guide you on your vacation, offering great insider tips that only locals know.

Rest assured, all our hosts are meticulously verified TAO owners or property managers. For peace of mind, you can check their rental platform listings and read their most recent reviews.

Then return to to connect with your favorite TAO condos' hosts. Here, you have the opportunity to contact them directly, and inquire about pricing and availability for your preferred dates. You will be able to review the host’s usual rental contract before booking, so you know what you will sign. It will be possible to negotiate payment methods and schedules, security deposits, and cancellation policies—all while staying in control. Here, you and the host dictate the terms; not the rental platform.

While renting directly may require a bit more time and effort compared to using the famous rental platforms, the benefits far outweigh any inconveniences. It’s totally worth it!

Your dream vacation is within reach, and it starts connecting with the owners through TAO Direct Rentals.
