1. Vacation Rental Schema

1.1 Scope

The scope of the Vacation Rental Schema is to differentiate this accomodation type from other accomodation types that are currently marked up. The most relevant Schema.org mark-ups to this industry right now are the following:

   http://schema.org/Hotel
   http://schema.org/Hostel
   http://schema.org/Motel
   http://schema.org/BedAndBreakfast
   http://schema.org/LodgingBusiness

According to Wikipedia[1], Vacation rental is the renting out of a furnished apartment or house on a temporary basis to tourists as an alternative to a hotel. The term vacation rental is mainly used in the US. In Europe the term villa rental or villa holiday is preferred for rentals of detached houses in warm climates. Other terms used are self-catering rentals, holiday homes, holiday lets (in the United Kingdom), cottage holidays (for rentals of smaller accommodation in rural locations) and gites (in rural locations in France.

This accommodation type definitely differs from Hotels, Hostels, Motels and B&Bs and it's certainly a sub-category of the LodgingBusiness schema with a few extra features, as described below.
