Is beach house rentals for you?

Summer is crowded

The summer months are such a great time to get away. When the hot weather hits many people decide to go to the beaches and to cabins by lakes. This is the booming time for resort owners and camp ground managers. The airlines also fill most of the flights during this time. My husband and I no longer have children in the home so we do not have to work around school schedules. Because of this we have found that if we plan our vacations for the early part of May of the end of September we still have great weather, but we do not have to contend with the crowds or the peak season prices.

Prices lower during off peak seasons

The past two years we have gone to the east coast for our vacations. We have found that we can stay for longer periods of time and have nicer accommodations because things are less expensive. We have looked into beach house rentals for years. We have always seen these great properties, but never thought we could afford to stay at them. Now that we plan our vacations during off peak seasons we can get the beach house rentals within our budget. We may spend a bit more than we would for a hotel, but because we have the entire house we can cook our own meals and spend less money on eating out at restaurants. We both love to cook and often times during our busy schedules at home we do not get a chance to do this together.

Vacations in September

Last year we looked at a list of beach house rentals by the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Many of the beach house rentals there are huge homes that can sleep eight to ten people. We found a nice two bedroom older home that was for rent. We called the couple and they said that they ordinarily do not rent out in September, but they were going to be gone the first part of the month of September so we could have the house for two weeks for the price of one if we agreed to take care of their dog and cat. We both love animals so we agreed to do this. The house sits on the beach as the beginning of the big house rentals. We agreed to arrive the morning the couple was leaving so they could show us where everything was and to go through the rules. They showed us where the kitchen items were that we could use as well as the food for the animals. The beds were made and they showed us where the laundry facilities were. We loved our two weeks on the beach. We walked, read and cooked. There were few others that were renting in the area so we had a great deal of privacy. It was the best two week vacation we ever took.
