Reduced Rates on Vacation Rentals

Surfside Beach vacation rentalsIf you’re trying to plan your vacation, keep in mind that this is the time of year when we have reduced rates on most of our Surfside Beach vacation rentals. With the cold temperatures and snow in the northern states it’s not hard to coax them down to enjoy our warmer weather. If you’re looking for Surfside Beach vacation rentals to spend part of your winter in we have just what you need. There are many long-term rentals in the area that we’d be delighted to reserve for you.

Thousands of people come to the Coastal Carolina’s from October to March each year, attracted by miles of sugar white beach and temperatures averaging in the 60s. These people return to the north when temperatures start to warm up in early spring but they’re here long enough to partake in some of the bet golfing there is and with no lines, no waiting.

Our Surfside Beach vacation rentals offer a big financial benefit during the winter months as it costs a substantially less amount than many pay for their mortgages or rent in the northern states this time of year. Here, winter monthly rates are generally about what summer beach goers will pay for a one week stay. That’s a pretty big savings.

Many people come down to the South Carolina coast to get away from snow and ice storms but they find they’ve also benefited from the lasting friendships they made while here. This might explain why so many of them return year after year. Our Surfside Beach vacation rentals can become your home away from home.
