Riparide Stories

Every place has a story

Bring your property and nearby adventures to life with a Riparide Story.

What are Riparide Stories?

Riparide Stories are real travel experiences captured and shared by our creative community of photographers, who we call Storytellers. Through inspiring photos and words, our Storytellers bring your property and nearby adventures to life.

Stories not only drive more bookings but they also inspire people to get out into nature and live fully.

Join us on our mission to deliver soul-fulfilling escapes.

Hear it from our hosts

Here’s what some of our hosts think about Riparide Stories.

Carl Ward
Japanese Zen Retreat

Since using the Riparide platform, my B&B has enjoyed a 30% increase in business. The clientele has been lovely and the story on the Japanese Zen Retreat has boosted reservations, which has been brilliant for my business and revenue.

Lisa Deppeler
Aire River Escape

Riparide sent Jesse to my property to provide photos and a story about his weekend at my property. This form of marketing proved to be very popular and Riparide is now my major booking platform.

Melanie Brown
Vintage 1967 Franklin Caravelle Van

Participating in a Riparide Story was a great experience that gave us additional exposure and led to bookings we could never have achieved on our own. We feel that being a part of Riparide is being part of a genuine, supportive team working together to offer our guests a unique and special stay.

Fay Bushby
The Barn at Heathcote

I love that Riparide is promoting all the wonderful things to do in the area through their stories. I’ve had Bushies Love Shack featured in two stories and I really think they’ve helped to enhance my guests' experience by encouraging them to get out and explore our wonderful region.

Jacob Stammers
Bushies Love Shack

Riparide guests seem to be chilled humans who understand the quirks of our property and really embrace the experience! We are also stoked with the ongoing support we’ve received – social media posts and the Riparide Story – which have meant heaps of bookings and really helps us stand out and get people excited for their adventure!

How It works

Create your listing, welcome your Storyteller and enjoy beautiful photos and better bookings.

Create a listing

Before we can organize your Riparide Story, you’ll need to list your property and become an official Riparide host. Welcome to the club.

Submit your story offer

This is what you’re able to provide in exchange for the shoot – generally two nights free. We work with photographers who usually charge $1k to $3k per day, so you’re getting an epic deal.

Host your storyteller

Your storyteller and travel crew will come to stay, explore and document their experience at your property. Photos will be taken, adventures will be had.

Publish and promote

Your story is published, your photos are shared and your property is now a bookable experience. Go forth, get bookings and inspire soul-fulfilling escapes!
