If you haven’t booked this summer’s vacation rental yet you’d better hurry up! The best beach houses are reserved long before summer even gets here, sometimes even before spring arrives! There’s nothing more disappointing than having your heart set on a particular property only to find out someone else has reserved it while you were still trying to schedule your vacation time. Usually all that’s required to hold a vacation rental is the deposit fee.
It comes as no great surprise that the most popular beach houses that get scooped up the fastest will be the oceanfront rentals and beach houses with swimming pools and other exceptional amenity packages. Also vacation rentals that are close to many recreational activities and amusement parks where guests can walk to where they want to go rather than drive.
Planning early and looking at rentals online provides you with the opportunity to get the vacation rental of your choice at what is often the best deal. Check the Specials page and see great deals we have and when then schedule your vacation during that period if you want to save the most money. Planning ahead also helps to build anticipation and that boosts happiness for many people. In addition, the sooner you plan, the less stress there will be at the last minute. You’ll have far more time to get everything done that you need to.
If you tried but you missed out on getting your dream rental then consider renting it for a different time or shorter period. Perhaps a weekend away would do you more good than you realize! You can also request to be on a cancellation list (albeit on stand by) in case someone with a reservation has to cancel.
Once your reservations are made you can get on with the fun of building your itinerary. Check the local event calendars to see what’s taking place in the surrounding areas for the period of time you’ll be here. Don’t wait until you arrive and hope you hear about things because it just doesn’t work that way usually. Do your homework before you arrive and you’ll ensure one of the best vacations ever!
