Dreaming About the Seaside
I have beach houses and vacations on the mind this week -- probably because I'm not going to enjoy much of either this summer. It's just too busy with family responsibilities and other duties to carve out a week on the Delaware shore. But a little searching showed that rentals are still available, even around Independence Day. Searching Long & Foster's vacation rental Web site, I found nine still available in Bethany Beach for check-in Sunday.
Rental houses and condos are also available this far into the season through Vacationrentals.com, a site where owners lease their homes direct to the vacationing tenant.
A search showed 29 places available for the week after Independence Day through ResortQuest, a company that leases a lot of condos and townhouses near Bethany Beach.
More interesting, though, is that ResortQuest has listings of condos, townhouses and some single-family houses that are available for two- three- or four-day rentals. Availabilities seem to be greatest later in the summer. Now that's the length of vacation I might be able to pull off in this busy summer!
What rental sites do you rely on to find vacation rentals? Share them here -- after you've booked your favorite week.
