Seattle startup Dwellable adds Washington state vacation rental listings

Another website devoted to finding vacation rentals just added a bunch of listings in Washington state.

Dwellable just this week brought online listings for more than 1,000 Washington state rentals.

And to be honest, not that many are in Spokane, at least as of June 26.  We searched and found three vacation rentals.

But it's going to grow, according to Dwellable CEO Brenda Spoonmore. The company was launched in Seattle in 2011 but only this week added Washington properties.  Spoonmore said she has Eastern Washington ties, having family in Dayton and Pullman.

Plans are to add Idaho listings some time later.  "By the end of year, we will cover all of the U.S. plus some additional areas in North America (eg, Whistler)," she wrote in an email.

Spoonemore is co-founder with another partner who also co-founded popular food mashup Urbanspoon.com.

"Not coincidentally, there are some similarities between the Urbanspoon approach to restaurants and ours to vacation rentals," Spoonmore added.
