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.

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.

And now you and your family can easily plan a summer beach vacation to Delaware or Maryland!
