Try a vacation rental in Cambria
 If you haven’t thought about stay- ing at a vacation rental, perhaps you should. Vacation rentals are usually homes or condos, often located in neighborhoods. Cam- bria management companies offer a wide variety of rentals, some directly on the water, some nestled in the pines and some in town. Depending on how you plan your trip any choice can work well for individuals, couples and families.
There are several positive as- pects to staying in a vacation rental as opposed to a motel or hotel.
For one, you won’t be awakened early by housekeeping. Renting
a vacation home is usually the most economical for families and groups of friends who are traveling together. Vacation rentals are often a “home away
from home,”
providing many
of the amenities
we are used to
at home.
Those amenities
can include
a full kitchen
to keep meal
costs down, a
living room
with and TV,
fireplace, washer and dryer, free Wi-Fi, supplied linens, BBQ grill, full bathroom with walk-in show- ers, dining room table for family meals, and some with hot tubs or even a free bottle of local wine. You will find places offering from two to four bedrooms with king and queen-sized beds and bunk beds. Many are also dog friendly.
A discussion with the rental agent makes all the difference it finding the perfect vacation rental. The agent can provide guidance that is helpful for those who have trouble with stairs, child-safe vaca- tion rentals, views and location.
Families with children want safety and someplace close to the beach or playground. Couples may desire that romantic spot. Do you
want to wake up to views of sunrise over the ocean or enjoy a glass of wine while watching the
sunset? Vacation rentals can give you just the right view.
Do you want to be within walking distance of the beach or maybe be take a leisurely stroll to
a restaurant for dinner? Is hiking in your plans? You may want to be a short drive to parks with hiking trails. Great central locations for sightseeing, wine tasting and shop- ping are also available.
Renting a home in a neighbor- hood means you will be staying with area locals so behaving just like you would in your home neigh- borhood is important. You can expect to receive all the amenities listed for the home of your choice and reserving one is easy using the management company’s website and checking out the photos and
information and be sure to read reviews. Rental agents will also
help you with guidance to outdoor activities, shopping, the best surfing and kayaking places, art galleries, restaurants for fine dining, play- grounds for children, banking, post office, and more.
Fees for rentals vary depending on your choice but usually include the rental fee, occupancy tax, clean- ing fee, processing fee and pet fee
if applicable. Also ask about the cancellation policy.
