    Are there any lists of vacation rental homes with charging capabilities for Tesla’s and other EV’s? We have a Tesla 3 and we have a 50 amp charger at our rental house.

    Maybe Plugshare?

    How do you normally list the house? AirBNB?

    I wish the rental websites would incorporate this as a filter option. We resort to looking in the descriptions for notes and if we find a place we really like we message the owners and ask. Although that has backfired since the owner said they had an RV plug, which of course was not a 14-50 receptacle. It took three days to charge up the car on a 120 volt plug in the garageo_O

    We advertise right on our heading of our rental. Wish there was a link from this club to allow Tesla owners who seek a beach rental with charging capabilities. We are in North Carolina

    We supply photos of our outlet ( 50 amp) on the VRBO listing of our house. We charge overnight or anytime when we need it.

    Several people have requested AirBnB have that as a filter. Hasn't happened. We do list our house on AirBnb as having EV charging and have had guests charge.
    AirBnB does have an amenity checkbox for EV charging but no filter.
    Another request to AirBnB might be helpful in getting them to add a filter.

    Tesla owners and other EV owners should keep asking for charger availability. Possibly AirBnB and VRBO will eventually get the message. Plus owners may begin to see that there is a demand.
