FAQ

What is a vacation rental?
Vacation rentals are privately owned homes, condos, cabins, and villas available for rent. It is not a timeshare, it is simply a property that is available for rent (just like a hotel).


Why should I choose a vacation rental over traditional hotels or resorts?

Vacation rentals provide a unique vacation experience due to several advantages over traditional hotel rooms.

Your Amenities
Enjoy your own hot tub, pool, gourmet kitchen, home theater, game room, and other amenities; even your own laundry facilities. No more waiting in line, fighting the crowds, sharing public facilities for you.

Your House
Stretch out and relax in your own living room. Nap on your own porch. Play games with friends and family in your own family room. No more cramming everyone into one hotel room, running from room to room, or looking for a place to enjoy some simple -together time-.

Choice
Chose from thousands of locations. Top vacation destinations, and those off-the-beaten-path & away-from-the-crowds places that do not have hotels. Whatever your desire - mountain, beach, city - there are vacation homes for you.

Value
Get the most from your vacation time and your -together time- with friends and family by using your spacious vacation rental home. Avoid eating out for every meal, paying extra for every drink and snack, and enjoy valuable private time with your group and/or family.


What can I expect for quality of the accommodations at a vacation rental?
Within a specific area, rates are often, but not always, indicative of quality. Generally, they are a function of location and overall demand for a property.
