AUSTIN (KXAN) – Austin-based HomeAway, Inc. has organized a Central Texas Wildfire Housing Directory of vacation homes available for rent, some at reduced rates or free of charge, to evacuees in need of housing.
HomeAway customers who list Austin-area properties on its website have volunteered to offer their rentals to evacuees.
More than 45 properties, ranging from one- to five-bedroom homes, are available in locations throughout Austin.
Fully-furnished homes can be rented for short- and long-term stays.
Individuals are asked to contact the owners directly; more information is available on the website.
