Begin Your Search Early

How Many Bedrooms?

Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Keep in mind that most homes list maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in the home's living room. You'll need to figure out what is acceptable for the party. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are usually accessible online. Otherwise, speak to the property owner before you reserve the home.

Create a Spending Limit

Does your favorite vacation property suit your budget during that preferred Summer week? If multiple groups or family members are sharing the cost, confirm that each person understands their obligations and has approved a maximum they are prepared to pay. Most rental documents call for a single individual to be responsible for the full reservation.

Property Features

What home features is your family searching for? Are you looking for a rental with open-air kitchen? Do you want to be far from the crowds, or near a city setting? Does the rental have bicycles and beach toys for use as part of your stay? Make a list of priority amenities to help narrow your search.

  • Record the condition of the rental property immediately upon arrival. If you find damages, or if fixes are required contact the home manager immediately. This will protect against disagreements during check out.
  • Ask questions. Should there be any ambiguity about parking, rules of the house, condo access, swimming pool operations, etc... we advise you ask the property manager immediately. A phone call can save hours of difficulty.
  • Don't forget to respect your neighbors. Natives will likely be as friendly to you as you are respectful of them. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking rules can make a vacation a little more pleasurable.
  • Ask a local. Local people are a terrific source of recommendations. Who better to ask where to order the best nachos, have a great night out, or the best spots for wildlife?
  • Ensure you protect the rental owner (and your things!) by keeping the rental home locked up when you are away, just like you would at home.

When its Time to Leave

  • Clean up a little. Even if you're having to pay a housekeeping fee, The vacation rental really should be in good condition. Kitchen sinks full of pots and pans, surplus beach sand on the floor and sticky messes ought to be remedied prior to leaving.
  • Make a point to walk through the rental home one last time and look for property damage. We suggest walking through with the property manager whenever feasible (this may not be possible).. If the property owner is not available, make certain you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you love your rental home? Just about all rental home management companies and rental home sites permit travellers to give feedback. If the rental and/or property manager was excellent, they will appreciate your recommendations. If anything was wrong and they did not correct it in a acceptable manner, or if the rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make it a point as part of your comments.
