Roomorama is a service for travellers to find short-term accommodations in locations around the world. Property owners can list their properties/rooms for short-term rental that travellers can search for and make reservations.
The Roomarma API allows developers to access the data and functionality of Roomarama. Some example API methods include listing destinations, properties, retrieving, creating, and editing property information, and listing property availability and rates.
Roomorama is not the only one in the person to person travel accomodations game. The company is in a space that’s been well established by other players: CouchSurfing, Vacation Rentals By Owner and, of course, AirBnB. While there's an AirBNB API planned, the only room rental site that is currently public with its platform is the the Roomorama API.
