Frequently Asked Questions
What is a vacation rental?
A beach house is the most common example of a vacation rental. Curious adventurers that enjoy staying in private, unique accommodations find vacation rentals to be preferable to noisy/lifeless hotel chains and quiet/cramped Bed & Breakfasts. With a vacation rental you are essentially paying to stay in someone else's private space. In our case, there are four vacation rentals located in one building.
