TechCrunch is reporting that HomeAway has acquired BedAndBreakfast.com for an undisclosed sum. HomeAway is a vacation rental company that operates a number of web properties, including VacationRentals.com, VRBO.com, and several other popular websites. Homeaway has close to a half a billion dollars in funding.
BedAndBreakfast.com is a website featuring over 10,000 bed and breakfast properties found throughout the world. The website provides reservation services and reviews of its listed bed and breakfasts. According to Compete, the website receives over 370,000 unique visitors per month.
In addition to the BedAndBreakfast.com property, I spoke with a representative at BedAndBreakfast.com who confirmed that HomeAway also acquired Inns.com as part of the deal. Inns.com is similar to BedAndBreakfast.com, but it caters to clients looking for inns rather than bed and breakfasts. According to Compete, Inns.com receives somewhere around 10,000 unique visitors per month.
Both companies are based in Austin, Texas.
