The excitement of arriving at your vacation rental
Increasing numbers of vacationers are coming to realize how affordable it is to
take a vacation on Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and even Nantucket. Unlike so many
other vacation destinations - where some of your greatest expenses don't even start
until after you arrive - the Cape and Islands offer so many free or inexpensive
activities, especially for families. There are numerous opportunities for wonderful biking, hiking and kayaking adventures. And,
as 40% of the US population is located within a day's drive, the Cape and Islands
are easy and economically feasible for so many to get to.
When is the ideal time to book a vacation home?
Timing for booking your vacation home depends on your needs as a renter. Be sure
to book early if it's imperative that you be on or near the water, in a specific
location, or require specific amenities. Larger homes, too, tend to fill up earlier
in the booking season, and there are fewer of them, so don't delay if your party
requires a large home. But there's no need to panic - lots of properties are coming
online every day and will continue to do so right through the booking season.
How to find the perfect vacation home for you:
- Use a trustworthy site like WeNeedaVacation.com - we've been in business
for since 1997, we're locally owned and operated, we communicate with our homeowners
extensively throughout the year, and most of us own vacation rentals on the Cape
& Islands ourselves. By using WeNeedaVacation.com, you book directly with the homeowner, thus
avoiding the 5-20% booking fees that the big box sites charge. And you can freely communicate with the homeowner prior to booking to ensure that all of your questions are answered and that the home is a good fit for you!
- Identify the best location for you: our site offers a wealth of information
on specific towns and beaches on the Cape & Islands. If you have young kids, for
example, you might be happier in the Upper or Mid-Cape area where you have access
to the calmer, warmer waters of the Bay and Sound as well as many activities geared
to young families. If, however, you either have older kids or none, you may prefer
the open surf and the quiet and natural expanses of the Outer Cape. This is equally
true of the Islands where you may prefer to be closer to town with young kids, or
more suited to rural Up-Island on the Vineyard or outside of Nantucket Town.
- Save valuable time by targeting your search: use the Power Search for Cape Cod vacation
rentals to search by location, size and price, and desired dates, as well as
specific amenities such as Internet access, linens included, a/c, and outside shower.
You can also choose a home that is on the water, has a water view, or is within walking distance of a beach. Best of all, you can view your search results as markers on a map. When you zoom in on an area, you'll see a property’s proximity to places of interest, like main routes and the center of town. You can also see the nearest beach, with links to our Beaches page where you will find in-depth descriptions of the beach.
