Beach Vacation Rentals Done Right with

Ocean City, MD – July 6, 2020 – There is a new player in the travel industry and they’re going to make a big splash at the beach! Booking a beach vacation in Maryland or Delaware has never been easier. Founders Mike Stack and Tim Long, who both have beach vacation homes, saw shortcomings in the vacation rental industry and decided to do something about it. Their new booking platform benefits both property owners and guests while offering the same benefits as the big online booking sites.

Mike and Tim watched their children grow up on the beach. They both have so many great memories of these times. Tim reminisces, “whether we were renting in Bethany, Rehoboth, or Ocean City those early years always included bike rentals, playing lacrosse on the beach, and visiting the boardwalk.” Mike has equally fond memories, reflecting, “it wasn’t a family vacation at the beach if we didn’t include a trip to Jolly Roger’s Amusement Park, snack on some Fisher’s Popcorn, or enjoy a Kohr’s Bros custard cone.” These are the types of memories wants to share with other families. To Mike and Tim, having affordable options which make destinations available to all, is at the core of their belief system.

The idea for stemmed from a conversation between friends. During their conversation, Tim asked Mike how his summer rental season had gone. Mike said it went well, but he was exploring alternate options for renting his investment property. He traditionally has used one of the bigger booking sites, but after it was acquired by another company, the booking site seemed to have strayed from their early days of being an affordable booking site where both owners and guests could communicate freely about vacation rentals. Today, that good old-fashioned model has inspired

The beach vacation rental booking business has become a big business, with online travel bookings topping $700 billion in 2019. Today, it’s not uncommon for the combined owner and guest fees to approach 20% of the cost of the rental. Those fees not only raise the rates for guests but can also eat into the profit margins for property owners. Since is a burgeoning company and is locally focused, their overhead is significantly lower than those of the national brands. The lower overhead has made it possible for owners to list their properties for free and for guests to pay an industry-low 3% booking fee. This difference in fees means the difference between affordable and not affordable to many families.

With an affordable pricing model now in place, is doing the unthinkable. Unlike the competition, they will offer open communication at all times. Allowing open communication will provide a much more satisfactory experience for both owners and guests. Owners get a chance to know the family they are renting to and those families will have an opportunity to have their questions answered before they book their vacation property. This open line of communication sets VacationAtMyPlace apart from other beach vacation rentals sites.

Mike and Tim’s goal is to provide the best beach inventory all on one easy to use site. Whether you’re searching in Lewes, Delaware or down to Ocean City, Maryland, or any beach in between, will have you covered. Property owners can list their properties for free starting July 15, 2020 and guests can begin booking their 2021 summer vacation beginning September 1, 2020.
