Vacation Time

Start Your Vacation When You Want

Flexible Vacation Options that Work for You

A lot of vacation spots only rent from Saturday-Saturday. With everyone coming and going at the same time, your vacation doesn’t exactly start out … like a vacation.

Maybe you’d like to start your vacation a little sooner and arrive on Friday. Maybe you have family activities on Saturday and can’t get away until Sunday. Or maybe you just can’t imagine leaving for vacation before you fix that dripping faucet.  That’s why many of our vacation properties offer you the option of a Friday-Friday or Sunday-Sunday vacation. After all, it’s your vacation. Shouldn’t you be the one who decides when it starts?

To enjoy the vacation you want when you want and avoid the Ocean City Saturday changeover,  simply search our website for alternate check-in dates or speak with a Vacation Coordinator at (410) 723-2002.  Or scroll down for a few of our featured properties!

Top 10 Reasons Vacation Rentals Rock!

Can`t decide between a vacation rental or hotel for your next visit to the Ocean City, MD or Delaware beaches? The choice is clear. Not only are vacation rentals a better value for your hard-earned vacation dollars, they also provide you with a better backdrop for relaxation and memories to happen. Read on to find out our Top 10 Reasons Vacation Rentals Rock!

1. Time Spent Together240 - Acropolis 4 Balcony
You may only get one week a year together, so make it count! Spend quality time with family or friends all under the same roof, rather than a couple floors away or across town at another hotel. Vacation rentals are perfect for reunions, birthdays & milestones.
2. More Space
Stretch out & relax! More space means more comfort. The average vacation rental is about 2,000 SqFt, while the average hotel room is only 400 SqFt. Vantage`s vacation rental inventory features homes with up to 7 bedrooms, and that can sleep up to 24 guests!
3. More Privacy100 - Gateway Grand 315 - Master Bedroom
With the ability to close bedroom doors when you need to, less need to share bathrooms, and more space between you and your neighbors, vacation homes offer more privacy for the guests in your group and a retreat from the rest of the world.
4. Bigger Selection
From budget-friendly efficiencies to luxury penthouses, there are vacation rentals to suit every preference and price range. Stay right where the action is or select a more subdued atmosphere, whether you prefer Oceanfront, Ocean Block, Bayfront, Bayside, Uptown, Downtown (and everything in between).
5. Better Value170 - Belmont Towers 701 Balcony
Vacation rentals are a great value because they sleep more guests for your money. Split the cost with family or friends to bring expenses down even more (Vantage`s newly-redesigned website offers Split Cost Calculator so you can see what each party`s cost would be).
6. Not Cookie-Cutter
Each vacation home has its own unique flavor and expresses the personality of the owner. Whether it`s fun island decor or a movie and music library, vacation rentals tend to provide little extras and a one-of-a-kind experience that can`t be replicated in a hotel room.
7. Feel at Home30 - Acropolis 1 Kitchen
Vacation rentals provide a cozier atmosphere, with many of the same features that you have in your own home such as comfortable seating, functional furnishings, gas & wood-burning fireplaces, outdoor decks, jetted soaking tubs, and more.
8. Make Life Easier
A week away is much easier when you have access to certain creature comforts. For example, you can save money on dining out by preparing meals in a fully-equipped kitchen, or pack less in your suitcase by doing a mid-week load of laundry. Vacation rental travel lends itself to little extras that minimize stress, such as closer parking and ample storage for beach items.
9. Kid-friendly520 - Sunset Island - Kiddie Pool
Let`s face it. Being stuck in a small space with children in tow is probably not the most restful way to spend your vacation. Many vacation rentals have amenities to make traveling with little ones easier, such as board games, video games, multiple TVs/DVDs, high chairs, cribs, and more.
10. Feel Like a Local
Perhaps you`ve been visiting the Ocean City or Delaware beaches for years and already know the area like the back of your hand, or maybe you just want to experience shore life the way locals do. No need to feel like a tourist! Vacation rentals offer an alternative to the general crowd, and help you find unique restaurants, shops, and activities that are off the beaten path.
