Why Stay in a Vacation Rental

Unlike many destinations these days, the Cape and Islands do not rely on an abundance of lavish and luxurious hotels to host the thousands of people who bound over the bridge each year. One of the most popular options for visitors to the Cape and Islands is renting a vacation home, and the most popular site is! So, sit back, relax, and let us help you plan your dream vacation to the Cape and Islands. But first, we’ll explain why renting is the way to go.

Reasons to Rent:

You're More Connected to the Community

By staying at a WeNeedaVacation rental home, you get to know the community and culture by embracing local amenities and areas that you may not be exposed to otherwise!

You're staying in a Cape and Islands sanctuary and getting a glimpse into what it's really like to live life over the bridge.

Control Over your Own Space

Despite the fact that we're now living in a somewhat "post-COVID" world, we understand that it can still be a bit unsettling to travel to new places and stay in locations other than our own homes. Renting a home with WeNeedaVacation allows you to alleviate some of the stress by allowing you to be in control of your environment. Renting a home with WeNeedaVacation provides an element of comfort that comes from you being able to take care of your own space as if it were your own home.

Restaurants can be Expensive...

There's no doubt about it...the Cape has some absolutely incredible restaurants with unbelievable seafood that has practically been snatched from the sea minutes before it hits your plate. However, all of this can come at a pretty high price. Why not forgo the cost and host your own Cape & Islands style cookout on the deck or porch of your vacation rental? You can get in touch with the homeowner ahead of time to sort out all the details and logistics in advance! Many homes are fully equipped with all of the items necessary to prepare your own meals. You may want to have a backyard barbecue or have some friends over for a clambake. When you have your own kitchen, the possibilities are endless!

Expand your Horizons

When you rent a home with WeNeedaVacation, you're going to find yourself wanting to spend more time at the home than you anticipated because of the sheer comfort and convenience. Your rental may even have a pool, a hammock, or a fire pit! But you also won’t want to miss out on adventure. Take the trail less traveled and really enjoy the Cape & Islands lifestyle by exploring some uncharted territory!
