Considering Renting A Villa For Your Next Vacation.

Give the experts a call..... we know the pitfalls.

For example descriptions can be misleading


The emphasis is on the "ette." Expect something like a single burner and bar fridge, rather than the fully stocked.

Junior Suite:

A junior suite incorporates the sitting room into the bedroom, unlike a true suite, which has a seperate sitting room.

Sleeps 8:

Couches don't count. Ask for the total number of bedrooms.

Steps From The Beach:

Confirm that it is not a thousand steps.

Pool Access:

Access usually means you'll be sharing it-and it may even be at another location. A private pool is what you want.

Why do it on your own. Give us a call and we will do it all!!!
