Hi. I would like to request if you would link to the following service (they are well known in the VR industry, and have been around 6 years of so.) SafelyStay.com. If you can't, can I link to it from my hosted website?

This basically offer Guest Verification, Liability insurance, etc for a reasonable price per booking (I plan to charge this to the guests).

But it will be clumsy to use if their service is not linked to my guests booking activity in OwnerRez.

This is their API description: https://www.safelystay.com/technologyplatform. They say "Since our APIs are RESTful and JSON based, they can be accessed using standard HTTPS protocol and we provide detailed descriptions (including input/output)."

Thanks for the recommendation! We'll look at them. I met with the Party Squasher guys last week btw. Interesting device.

Yea, I had looked at Party Squasher - but both my properties are right next to others, in town. I think that is good for out in the country

I talked to SafelyStay on the phone. Basically for $29 per guest (3 days), you get:

Verification of Booking person (200 databases, yada yada)
Up to $10,000 of contents coverage damaged by guest for pretty much any reason, deductible only $100
$100,000 liability and building coverage.

There are higher coverages, but this is a nice supplement to a difficult building I have (part commercial spaces)

Yeah, it does seem like it's taking a while, doesn't it? We talk to them regularly and they are moving forward with the integration. It should be done very soon.

I am just getting started on OwnerRez and I really want this integration. I'm posting here so I will see any replies to this with an update. Safely has the Owner Rez logo on their website as an affiliate but no integration.

How is this going?
Great idea to have this and Party Squasher.

An address verification API is very important.
I went through my rental this year and 14 had bad addresses uploaded by guests.
Tremendous potential for fraud here.
