Hello – My name is Tim Riordan and I have hosted over 1,000 families from all over the world since 2005 and generally speaking it’s been a great experience.
Our average booking is 4 nights with typical stays ranging from 3 to 7 nights. Occasionally we’ll get bookings that are 2 to 8 weeks long with the latter being in the January to March time frame only. Well behaved children and pets are most welcome. Quiet, responsible drinkers are welcome and smokers are welcome, albeit ALL smoking must be done outside of the homes with butts disposed of appropriately. Drugs in any form are not welcome.
The Vacation Rental market is rapidly changing, and all the major listing sites are trying to capitalize on these changes by nickeling and dimeing travelers and property owners. All major listing sites are now charging booking or service fees between 6% to 17% to the travelers/guests. Save $$ and Book Direct with me!
