VRBO Touts Mid-Atlantic Seaboard
Summertime, and the living is easy along the Mid-Atlantic shore, says vacation-rental giant VRBO (Vacation Rental By Owner). Its headliners: Ocean City, Maryland, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and Virginia Beach, Virginia.
A virtual hopscotch through VRBO listings in Rehoboth Beach indicate that demand is strong for big houses that sleep 10 or more, with many properties already rented for all of July and August. But there are available weeks and weekends for smaller properties and the price can be as little as $175 per night.
In Ocean City, there seems to be greater availability. But with so many families staying closer to home because of the tough economy, homes from New York's Hamptons to the Jersey Shore all the way south to virginia are looking mighty appetizing.
For example, the house shown above, in Rehoboth Beach, sleeps 8 to 10 and has prime weeks available for up to $4,200. Sounds like a lot of money? Not divided up among 4 couples.
