Alana HuxtableMeet Alana. She is the founder and CEO of Holiday House Deals - and like her company, she is a ‘national’ entity.  
Born in Melbourne, Victoria, where she has memories of her early childhood in Wantirna, Alana and her parents moved to Adelaide where she grew up and remained until early adulthood. After completing her University degree by the age of 20, she acquired one of the “best jobs in the world” that saw her travel all over South Australia, writing popular tourism features for the internationally renowned Secrets of South Australia magazine series and as project manager for tourism award submissions of iconic nature-based tourism attractions, for which she won state and national tourism awards. She got to see Sea-lions up close in their natural habitat on Kangaroo Island, bushwalk in the stunning Flinders Ranges and view the River Murray from a speedboat - just to name a few of her thrilling adventures.


In her mid-late 20s, she made the move to Perth for three years and was appointed senior positions in organisations that required her to travel throughout WA. It was the first time she experienced the beautiful Swan Valley and Margaret River; Pemberton where she sky-walked amongst the tallest trees in the world; Albany where she learned about the region’s rich history and beauty; Busselton, where she was amazed to discover the longest jetty in the world, and Lancelin that is renowned for its surfy sand dunes and warmer climate. She became quite fond of Perth too - especially the breathtaking Kings Park and Swan River.


From there, she headed to sunny Brisbane where she founded Holiday House Deals, and now resides. She has often taken the Brisbane River cruise, picnicked in Redcliffe and Scarborough, bushwalked at Mt Cootha, and visited nearby attractions including Mt Tamborine, Surfers Paradise and Coolangatta. She has also ventured to popular NSW regions like Byron Bay and Wooli in the Clarence Valley, and Maleny, Maroochydore, and Noosa and Hervey Bay in QLD. She’s also made the time to visit Far North Queensland where she’s spent time in beautiful Cairns and Port Douglas.  

Alana HuxtableFor Alana, Holiday House Deals has been a natural extension of herself and all her experiences including her passion for Australian holiday travel. Alana is a holiday accommodation owner herself, and has known for many years that dramatic change was needed in the holiday rental industry; she knew there was a need for a travel advertising platform that could powerfully showcase the terrific holiday accommodation that exists across Australia so that customers could book directly with owners and managers, commission free. 



“Accommodation should be promoted not merely as an unknown product on a supermarket shelf, but advertised as its own highly appealing featured entity with its name in shining lights - like you would see on television,” Alana says. “There is so much power in this for accommodation owners and managers including direct, unobstructed contact with customers, commission-free bookings, widespread recognition as a preferred option in their region, accelerated Facebook community growth for their page, and substantial web traffic to their online business entities including their own website,” Alana says.


Alana created this platform to make holiday accommodation ‘shine bright’ with widespread national attention and brand recognition for owners and managers. “With Holiday House Deals, we are handing the power back to accommodation owners and managers and enabling them to be ‘discovered’, stand out, be remembered, and be endorsed by our very exciting brand.”


Holiday House Deals uses a different method of promotion that enables owners and managers to have their accommodation promoted in highly appealing and memorable way, which has customers gushing over and powerfully endorsing their accommodation to their friends as a fantastic option for their next holiday. "We are not a listing site. We're a feature advertising platform that makes accommodation stand out and be remembered."


"Holiday House Deals is for those that seek more visibility for their holiday accommodation and who want to become more empowered with more commission-free bookings,” Alana says.
