The Ultimate list of Vacation Home Names- Why you should create a Brand for your Vacation Rental

One of the fun things about buying a vacation rental (besides getting to use it occasionally) is giving it a name. Everything else is branded these days - why not your vacation home?  No need to use an online house name generator - we have done all the research and work for you and come up with a very extensive list of house names. Our list includes over 400 Beach House names, Lake House names and Mountain, Cottage & Cabin names as well as a few others.  We hope you enjoy our fun list of Vacation Home name ideas and find one for your Vacation Rental!

Why should I name my Vacation Rental?  Having a name for your vacation home gives it an identity and makes it stand out among the thousands of other rentals in your area. This is especially important in areas that have high rental listing density. Just try scrolling through all the HomeAway or AirBNB listings in a dense rental area like Destin, and see how they all run together after awhile.

A unique name will give your property a better chance to stand out among all the others. Think about it, when renting a Beach house would you rather stay in “Just Beachy” or #111 Ridgewood way?   Just take a look at some of our Beach House names.......

When we purchased our first Vacation Rental 7 years ago in Austin, Texas we immediately gave it an identity naming it El Sueño, which translates to “The Dream”. We had always dreamed about owning something in the Texas Hill Country, so for us, this name represented the joy of finally owning a little piece of it (even if it was just a small condo).

Our second rental property was named “Vista Azul” (Blue View) because it had a fantastic view of beautiful crystal blue Lake Travis (we no longer own Vista Azul but you can see we had a theme going here). Our dream of owning a little bigger piece of the Hill Country was realized recently when we purchased 140 acres near Fredericksburg, TX. It’s a beautiful piece of property with rolling hills and several dry creek beds, hence the name - “Dry Creek Ranch”.

El Sueño HomeAway listing 287420



After coming up with the name for our rental, we made sure to have a sign made for the condo entrance to greet guests to “El Sueño” when they check in. The sign is the first thing they see when they walk through the door and lets them know that their vacation has started!

Over the years, our guests have come to know and love our brand too. We get many repeat guests who always request to book our condo by its name. They would never remember my listing number, but they do remember the name. It represents a getaway to them with many wonderful memories.

How to come up with a name - You can let many things guide you when choosing a name for your house. Maybe you want to use a name that has meaning to your family or incorporates your family name. Another popular option is to use a catchy or funny house name. Where is your rental located? Is it a Beach Bungalow, Mountain Ski condo, Lake House or Urban Retreat? There are so many different directions you can go - you really can’t go wrong. Just as long as it is meaningful to you!

We have a small apartment above our garage so we went with ‘GarageMahal’ – our guests seem to like and remember it.
