Meet VR411

The First Member-Directed Vacation Rental Platform

Hi There. Nice to Meet You. We're glad you're here.


VR411 is the oldest vacation rentals website on the Internet!


Take a minute to say hello.

Richard Ralke, Founder
Fearless Leader

Richard founded in August of 2000, as the marketplace for online vacation rentals was nearly non-existent. At around this time, Richard bought a vacation home in the heart of Southern California's Big Bear region.

After some time he decided to share it with others who may be looking for a vacation rental home.

The only problem was, at that time there was essentially nowhere online to list his house for rent. Never one to wait for someone else to solve his problems, Richard enlisted the help of Tim in what was initially a vacation rentals website for his home in Big Bear.

After the initial launch of the site, others began to ask if they could share it and list their vacation homes as well. Shortly thereafter, was born.
