Beach Vacation

Thereís nothing like lying on a sun-drenched beach, lying down under the shade of a palm tree with a warm sweet breeze soothing you and a nearby waiter bringing you pina colada cocktails and fresh seafood. Itís a slice of heaven on earth. It doesnít matter where the beach is Ė Hawaii, Florida, France, the Bahamas, Greece, Spain or anywhere in the Pacific. Ė as long as you can see the relaxing waves on the ocean and soak up the sun. Itís an image worthy of a dream vacation.

So whatís keeping you? For lots of people, itís the prohibitive cost of staying at a beachfront hotel. The expensive costs of these places is enough to prevent many from pursuing their dream beach vacation. But there are other ways, too. One of the alternatives that will help you save yet still retain that beach front location is through beach vacation rentals.

They are clean, well-furnished and comfortable, and thereís nothing that beats their proximity to the beach. Besides, living in someoneís home does have its advantages over renting an expensive single room at a hotel. For one thing, you have more bedrooms to occupy, lots more room for entertaining and what-not, as well as kitchen facilities. For an entire family, beach vacation rentals can mean substantial savings.

If you think looking for a viable beach vacation venue to rent is a difficult task then it is my pleasure to correct you. Perhaps the easiest way it to get in touch with a real estate agency in the city you are eyeing for your vacation. These agencies often have a listing of available beach vacation rentals, complete with photographs, rental rates and other pertinent information. You may even try to find and communicate with these real estate agencies online.

Another way is to surf the city websites of the place that you plan to visit since these usually have business directories that list everything from your neighbourhood barber to the fanciest restaurants in town. Of course, the real estate agents and agencies will be listed there as well and, if youíre lucky, so too will a roster of available beach rentals. Hey, if you can avoid using a real estate agent, then thatís extra savings to spend on the beach, right?

Most beach rentals are for a week or less and, if you are planning to stay longer, you can probably get a discount on your rental rate. Some of these rentals even offer a staff that will cater to your every need. is a recreation portal providing recreation related articles and information.
