Relax, Take it Easy

Ocean Isle Beach is the largest out of three barrier islands in Southern Brunswick County, North Carolina. Stretching across eight miles of soft sand, Ocean Isle neighbors both Holden Beach and Sunset Beach. Therefore, offering an even greater variety of activities including beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The silky waters of Ocean Isle average about 10 degrees warmer than those of the Outer Banks and without strong currents. Consequently, these characteristics provide a safe place for scuba diving, sailing, and swimming for children as well as adults. Not to mention the weather remains consistently warm. Also, an ideal place to ride a charter boat out for deep-sea and back-shore fishing by the Ocean Isle Beach Fishing Pier—one of the oldest piers in North Carolina built in 1957.

Furthermore, the coastal land activities hands-down include golf. No matter your level of experience, the award-winning golf courses are definitely a unique experience. Ocean Isle Beach is also known to be the home of some of the most delicious seafood. The Beach is near Calabash, otherwise known as the “seafood capital of the world”. Mark the third weekend of October on your calendar for the Annual North Carolina Oyster Festival too. However, if seafood is not your favorite dish, try the mouth-watering oriental dishes or steak houses dotting the streets. The town offers top shopping opportunities as well. Nevertheless, all entertainment available in Wilmington, North Carolina, and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina are a short drive away if you are looking for something new.

Have you decided which of the Hawaiian Islands to visit yet?

No? Indeed, sometimes it is a difficult choice and this all depends on what you seek for your vacation. Would you enjoy the experience of hiking on bubbling, rumbling volcanoes? Or, would you rather watch playful whales swim around you? Are you attracted to nightlife art and culture? After all, each Hawaiian Island provides a beach, entertainment, dining, and luxurious villas.

Kauai, the oldest island, is known for its sensational beauty and natural wonders. And, Poipu Beach, for one, was voted one of America’s best beaches. Notably, Wailua Falls is known as Kauai’s epic waterfall. Also, you can explore the mysterious trails of Kokee State Park, Kalalau Trail or the Waimea Canyon—nicknamed the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific”. However, Maui—the second largest islands, is focused more on amazing beaches. Visit during the winter months for some of the world’s most spectacular whale watching experiences. Drive past the breathtaking scenery on the Road to Hana, and finish the day catching a Haleakala sunrise.

Furthermore, Oahu is a cultural center. And, although rich with 21st-century amenities and entertainment, it does not lack in nature one bit. Indeed, notable spots include Pearl Harbor, Waikiki Beach, and North Shore for gigantic waves. Finally, the Big Island is one of the most diverse areas in Hawaii. The Big Island combines 11 climates including snow, sand, and rainforests as well as botanical gardens. In addition, the Big Island is also home to monstrous volcanoes. Lastly, do not miss Downtown Hilo, Waipio Valley, and Kona Town which are fantastic tourist spots.

Protect Your Family from Vacation Rental Scams!

Five Travel Savvy Tips

We are pleased to offer this article from Find Rentals who works hard to support and promote professionally managed vacation rentals and the property management companies who rent them.

By Deborah Nelson, VRTG Publisher and Travel Writer

dream vacation home: Professionally managed vacation rentals You found a dream vacation home on a popular vacation home site … The photos, reviews, and description paint a picture of paradise. The emails are warm and friendly; engaging and helpful. Hanging out in this vacation rental home might be one of your best vacation memories ever! More space. Less noise. More privacy. Less expensive. More kitchen. Less eating out.

These Five Travel Savvy Tips are brought to us, courtesy of the Find Rentals Website.

Booking Vacation Rentals Online

Wait. Is it “too good to be true? Maybe. Maybe not. Scammers, thieves, and unscrupulous owners may be looming on the horizon, but most likely not. Most travelers who rent vacation homes never have a problem. Never ever. Yet the slim possibility of a vacation rental nightmare could be yours if you fall prey to their trap. Whether an unscrupulous owner keeps your deposit, or you find yourself in a far away land with a rental in disrepair, your rights may be limited. The simple solution–lower your risk by booking only with professionally managed vacation rentals.

Article from USA TODAY

Use Professionally managed Vacation Rentals to avoid scams

FROM USA TODAY. “You may have found a dream rental on a website like VRBO or HomeAway, but it doesn’t mean the listing is credible or that you have any automatic rights. For instance, as VRBO states on its disclaimer page, the site is an advertising medium for property owners and managers to list properties and it does not verify the accuracy of its listings.” (Read More) But no worries. Vacation rental nightmares are easy to prevent with these five travel savvy tips:

.

Tip 1 for Professionally Managed Vacation RentalsLook for Reviews but Not Random Online Reviews

It is not wise to base your booking decision mostly or solely on reviews posted on listing sites. Of course trending reviews are reassuring and comforting at the moment. But unscrupulous owners and scammers may engineer “bad reviews” against the competition. At the same time they might also be falsifying good reviews for their own listings. Policies vary between vacation rental listing sites. Some sites allow the account holders to choose options to hide, delete, or diminish bad reviews. Reviews can be skewed according to the taste and experience of guests. And, they are not always accurate, or reliable. For professional vacation rental reviews by seasoned travel writers, see The Vacation Rental Travel Guide.

TIP 1: Professionally Managed Vacation RentalsUse Professionally Managed Vacation Rentals (PMVR)FR-Vacation_Rentals_purplestamp_03_01-11-16

”For extra assurances, book through a property management agency. Vacation rental agencies serve as a middle-man for owners and renters. Reputable agencies put in place certain standards their owners meet before agreeing to manage their property, including contracts with rights for the renters and detailing the services provided.” (USA TODAY)

Benefits of PMVRs

When you book with PMVR, in the event of an emergency, they will offer you options. Should the property become unavailable, the agency can place you in an equal or better property. When renting from an owner directly, the back up properties will not be available. And, if you need multiple properties for retreats, events, and reunions, PMVR can handle your needs. PMVR are on the job full-time and can be responsive to your vacation timeline. And with PMVR you can expect great customer service.

When renting with a PMVR you rent with peace of mind knowing that the rental does exist. You will be offered more pricing options and availability. Can’t find a wine opener? A local guide? A massage at home? Perhaps you would like a translator. Most professionally managed vacation rentals are connected to these services, and will help with your extra concierge needs quickly.
