About Escapia

Escapia is a cloud-based vacation rental software, offering users assistance with managing reservations, accounting, property listings and distribution, and more.

Escapia’s reservation management system incorporates lead management, front desk operations, and guest reviews. Users can view full complete guest histories, including all correspondence, extend reservations directly from within the calendar, produce customizable reservation reports, and let Escapia automatically generate reservation confirmations to send out to guests. Business performance can be viewed on customizable business dashboards, which include daily activity widgets such as check-ins and check-outs, open work orders, unread inquiries, and total rent booked, and can produce reports and graphs for year-to-year comparisons of inquiries, bookings, and income.

Escapia’s rate engine enables property managers to set up and adjust variable rates, special offers, discount plans, flexible charges and add-ons. Users can enter rates in bulk, and test pricing plans before activation, as well as using daily, weekly, and monthly rate calculation. Rates are automatically updated across Escapia and all other partner sites a property is listed on.

Escapia partners with multiple property listing and distribution sites, including Vrbo, BookingPal, and FlipKey, with users able to choose where their properties are promoted. Availability calendars are automatically updated in real time between listing sites and users’ own records. Guest reviews of properties can also be automatically distributed from Escapia to selected partner channel sites.

Pros

Their online support is pleasant and easy to talk with and understand. There is a phone number where you can actually speak with a person.

Cons

Their texting program was not very good the last time we looked at it.

Solid Property Management Software with Excellent Trust Accounting

I have been using Escapia for 5 years now and overall it has saved us an incredible amount of hours we used to spend doing things manually. It does take a considerable amount of time to setup automations, owner contracts, etc. and just learn all the ins and outs in general. However, their implementation teams are extremely helpful and knowledgeable and they have great training articles and videos.

Pros

The trust accounting capabilities within the system has greatly improved the speed and accuracy in which we complete our month end accounting procedures, and also provides our owners with very detailed financial statements. Also their integration/mapping with Vrbo is second to none.

Cons

They are working on a lot of new features and improvements which is very exciting. However, sometimes they announce them way too early in my opinion and they should instead have a solid launch date to provide before announcing.

Does a lot of stuff... if you can figure it out

Reviewed on 2018/09/19

Pros

Escapia has a lot of features: EscapiaNET allows you to distribute units to many listing sites and other softwares, the rate engine and fees allow you to set up a lot of rate rules etc, and the reservation grid makes it easy to see which units are booked when. There are also a lot of reports available to generate from Escapia.

Cons

Escapia's biggest con really is that it is so complicated. Nothing is easy to do in Escapia, nothing is intuitive. Even after using it for years I still have a hard time remembering and figuring out where everything is. There is a lot of support documentation, but even that isn't always easy to use, and some of it is outdated.

We, know well what we are working with and the issues that Escapia has. The benefits of the use of Escapia, far out weigh the "gremlins" in Escapia. Customer support is great service.

Pros

Escapia is all inclusive, from bookings to owner payouts. It has everything needed for guests, business and owners.

Cons

The "Gremlins"...Escapia has them, make no mistake about knowing that they are in the program. We actually left Escapia after 10 years of use, to purchase a booking platform that was a one and done upfront cost. We stayed only 3 months using that booking platform and came back to Escapia. For us, it was the devil you know, vs. the devil you don't. Escapia does have 95% of what we need.

Couldn't function well without it. Very pleased

Pros

Not only does the software have all the functionality, channel management and ease of use one would expect, but very important to us, it provides good trust accounting and absolutely far and above customer support.

Cons

It took some time to learn initially but that was due to its expansive overall functionality. Many upgrades to the software over the years has greatly enhanced the ease of use.
