Heading to the beach for vacation offers an excellent opportunity to have some fun under the sun. Here are a few important features to look for when choosing a beach house rental to stay at:
Private Beach Access
One important feature that shouldn't be overlooked is private beach access from the rental house. Whether the backyard leads directly to the beach or a private path leads from the rental property to the sand, you shouldn't have to share your beach access with other beachgoers, and you shouldn't have to walk down the street to gain access to the beach.
The whole point of renting a beach house is to be able to spend lots of time on the beach, not just look at it from the yard. If access isn't easy and private, you likely won't utilize the beach as often as you'd like to simply due to inconvenience.
An Outdoor Shower
Spending time at the beach is bound to get you sandy, which can make the rental house a mess when you head inside to take a shower. So it's smart to choose a beach house rental that features an outdoor shower in the yard somewhere.
With an outdoor shower available, you and your party can rinse yourselves, your bathing suits, your towels, and all your beach gear before it even gets close to inside the house.
Lots of Windows
To get the most out of your beach vacation, it's a good idea to choose a rental home that features lots of windows in each room. Otherwise, you'll feel like you are staying in a regular house. Lots of windows will give you an opportunity to see and experience everything that's going on outside even while spending time indoors.
The sunlight will keep things bright indoors and help encourage everyone staying at the beach house to get outside and enjoy the surroundings.
Having to take beach clothing home from vacation without washing it can be pretty inconvenient. Not only will everything in your suitcase probably get sandy as you travel home, but you can expect to deal with a sandy mess in your own home once you start unpacking as well.
To avoid this inconvenience, make sure that your beach house rental comes complete with a laundry room where you can wash, dry, and even hang your clothes, bathing suits, and towels throughout your visit. You'll be able to travel back home with a suitcase full of clean clothes and free of any unintentional sand messes.
Keep these things in mind when you're considering a beach house rental property.
Once you sign the sale contract with your listing agent, there's a good chance that things will start moving quickly. Your agent will want you to stage your home for the listing photos, open houses, and showings. If you've never experienced the staging process, you may not know exactly what to do or where to start. The information on this site will help you to not only understand what's expected of staging but also offer tips for you to maximize your efforts without investing a lot of time. I hope the information here makes your home sale process a little bit less confusing and a little easier to manage.
