How Many Bedrooms?
How many family members are joining your getaway? Consider that a lot of homes advertise maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the living room. It is important to figure out what is most appropriate for the party. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are commonly available on the internet. Otherwise, email or call the property owner before you reserve the home.
Exactly What Are You Willing to Pay?
The majority of rental properties are presented with a cost range. Confirm the rate for your selected week. It could be at the top end of the range. Be sure to get cost-sharing commitments from company before reserving an expensive rental. Most rental documents call for a single individual to be liable for the entire reservation.

- Please remember to respect your nearby neighbors. . Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking restrictions can make a stay substantially more relaxing.
- Ask a local. Locals may point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to order the best nachos, have a great date night, or the best places for shopping?
- Make sure to protect the owner (and your things!) by keeping the home secured while you are away, exactly like you would at home.
- Double-check each room of the vacation property to make sure you've gathered all belongings.
- Make a point to walk through the rental home one final time and check for damage. We suggest walking through with the rental manager whenever possible (often this isn't possible).. If the property owner is not available, remember to take photos of the property to record its condition.
- How do you rate your experience? Many rental home management companies and vacation rental websites allow renters to provide reviews. If your rental home and/or property manager was great, they'll appreciate your recommendations.
