Search Holiday Rentals & Contact Multiple Owners
We recommend you make enquiries to multiple holiday homes that meet your preferences. Click the button near the top of the holiday rental listing to submit an availability request. When filling out an availability request, be sure to include your correct email address and a phone number where the holiday homeowner or property manager can reach you during day and evening hours.
Tip: Send enquiries to all holiday rental properties you are interested in. This will ensure you receive enough owner responses before making a final choice.
Secure Reservation with Deposit
Tip: Credit cards and direct deposit are preferred payment methods. Payment methods vary from owner to owner, so always enquire beforehand. Do not send money via Western Union, cashiers cheque or other wire services to any owner that requires immediate full payment.
Review, Sign & Send Owner Agreement
Tip: Keep a folder of all your rental documents, receipts and owner contact information for easy reference. Mark your calendar when security deposits and final payments are required to be made.
