We’ve all been there. For that one fun trip, we plan for months on end. Where do we go? Who’s coming? How do we go? When? How often is that plan going to change before someone loses his or her mind? Travel logistics can become a long, drawn out horror story… unless you have these startups to help you out.

Tripvillas is a website that allows travelers to book Holiday Homes and Home stays instead of Hotels and Resorts. This is a win-win proposition where Owners who use such properties rarely make additional income and Travelers get to stay in large spacious family homes in some of the most beautiful places in the world. The website was founded in late 2009 by Roshan D’Silva when looking for ways to generate additional income from Coffee Plantations owned by his family. Inspired by Craigslist, Roshan set out to create a simple website where owners of private homes could create a simple profile for their property and then correspond with like minded families who would be interested in staying in their homes as an alternate to hotels.
Depending on the size of the property, many owners in Asia have chosen to convert their homes into Homestays, BnBs, Pension houses etc. where Travelers can stay in self contained rooms within the property or else to just rent out the entire Property to families and groups who then have full use of the property including the kitchen, living room, lawns and swimming pool.
