Choose a vacation rental for more freedom and flexibility during your stay.

For a week-long vacation, a hotel room can feel crowded with other vacation-goers, stale and confined with limited amenities and space.

Vacation rentals are the perfect alternative to a hotel stay. Spacious bedrooms and living areas make it easy to spend plenty of quality time together with the family, and privacy and exclusivity when you need it. Full-size gourmet kitchens and dining spaces are perfect for enjoying meals together and rentals with recreation and game rooms are great for keeping families entertained throughout the entire stay.

You have the flexibility of choosing the area or location you want to stay in. And plenty of other customizable options to ensure you find the perfect rental home that meets all your needs. If you prefer a home with a pool, oceanfront views, proximity to local attractions and entertainment, or a combination of the three, you’ll be able to find what you want without any hassles.

Find the perfect vacation rental to accommodate groups of any size.

Depending on the size of your group (and how comfortable you are with each other), picking the right accommodations is one of the most important components to a successful and memorable family or group vacation.

For smaller, more intimate groups, condos are a great option. Larger families and groups might benefit more from a house or duplex. At one of these options, you’ll be able to enjoy each other’s company in spacious and comfortable spaces, but with enough privacy, that everyone feels right at home. One of the bonuses to renting one of our duplex vacation rentals is that you can rent both halves for even more space and added convenience.

Another great option is our large family vacation rentals which feature 8+ bedrooms, making them an ideal choice for multiple families and family reunions. And for the largest of groups, check out our selection of Sand Castle properties that come with a wide range of amenities such as rec rooms, pools and hot tubs, media rooms, outside dining areas and much more.
