Travel Smarter, Not Harder

Travel Smarter, Not Harder in OCMD

Travel Smarter, Not Harder


If you’ve ever driven to Ocean City in summer on a Saturday, you know that traffic is a given. Over 8 million visitors a year flock to the area in search of beach bliss, transforming the normally quiet town of only 7,100 year-round residents into a vibrant resort. Yet, the fact remains that Ocean City is only 4.5 square miles in size and a skinny 10 miles in length, with just three ways on and off the island. If you’re traveling during peak days or peak hours, you will likely find yourself crawling along like a group of slow-motion sea turtles. Not exactly the most peaceful way to start (or end) your vacation!

Think Like a Local – Beat the Peak

What’s a determined beach-goer to do? All you’re trying to do is enjoy your vacation, right? As many locals & long-time visitors know, the key to avoiding traffic is arriving and departing during off-peak times. That’s why select homes in Vantage’s inventory offer Sunday-Sunday and Friday-Friday rentals, which allow guests to arrive and depart on days of the week that typically have a lower traffic volume. That means while all the other visitors are battling the masses on a Saturday afternoon, you can be relaxing in your beach chair, eating french fries on the Boardwalk, or crabbing and fishing on the bay. See below for some of our favorite properties that offer great alternatives to the traditional Saturday rental:

Go Big in 2017

Go Big! Our Biggest Beach Homes of 2017

Big Vacation Rentals Mean Big Fun

In today’s fast-paced world, it can be hard for friends and families to spend quality time together. Not only are our schedules stretched too thin, but it’s common for families to live geographically further away from one another than they did in the past. In fact, a recent AARP survey showed that only 45% of grandparents live more than 200 miles from their grandchildren and 80% live at least 50 miles away. Vacation rentals provide the perfect way for everyone to gather in a comfortable, homey setting so that all you have to do is relax, reconnect, and make memories together. Here’s why 2017 is your year to Go Big in our biggest Ocean City beach homes:

    • More Bedrooms & Bathrooms for Extra Comfort

      Need a little extra elbow room on vacation? Our inventory of big homes makes it easy for large groups of friends and  family to stretch out and spend time together under the same roof, yet still get some privacy when you need it – something that’s almost impossible to achieve in a cramped hotel room. This especially comes in handy when everyone is used to different sleep schedules, such as nap time for the little ones or sleeping-in late for the teenagers.
      *St. Kitts 101 offers spacious & beautiful sleep accommodations.

    • Great for Reunions & Milestones

      According to a recent study by Netamatix (2013), 69% of leisure travelers say they have taken a trip to celebrate a special occasion or life event, such as an anniversary, birthday, wedding, retirement, or family reunion. Vantage’s ever-growing inventory of big vacation rentals offers features that are conducive to large group gatherings, such as indoor/outdoor seating and spacious areas for dining and entertaining.
      *Check out Meridian 1002W for exceptional indoor/outdoor seating.

    • Save Money by Splitting the Cost & Eating In

      Best of all, big vacation rentals can actually save you money by allowing multiple families to travel together and split the cost of the rental. In addition, Vantage’s biggest homes typically offer some of the finest, best-equipped kitchens in our entire inventory, creating an easy and cost-effective way to prepare meals at home instead of paying top-dollar at restaurants around town.
      *Cook a gourmet meal at 34 Seaside Dr. in Sunset Island.

Ready to Go Big in 2017?  With spring and summer just around the corner, our biggest homes are filling up fast.  Browse our website today or speak with a Vacation Coordinator at (800) 555-4099 (opt. 2) to discover the perfect spot for your Ocean City vacation.
