A Seashore Vacation

You’ve heard the travel agency commercial-  “The Shore Without the Chore” -promoting Caribbean family vacations.  As someone who handles summer rentals at the shore…and also loves to travel, here’s my opinion of that statement:

Most of our tenants live within a reasonable driving distance.  They pack up their car and kids, and drive 2 hours to check in.  Some even go back and forth if renting for several weeks.  Although no daily maid service, a rental home allows for easy meal preparation (saving $$) and space to spread out on a rainy day.

The Caribbean vacation, however requires a bit more planning.  The drive to the airport, parking fees, luggage limitations (weight and number of bags), security lines, and then the 4 hour plane ride.

And as much as I enjoy seeing new areas of the world, there is something to be said for going back to a place where you feel comfortable.  You know the best restaurants and stores.  You have your favorite bakery and coffee shop.  The older children can safely ride their bikes to Hoy’s or the playground.  Everyone quickly falls into their vacation routine…and all is good!
