Figure out how much you have in your budget to spend for a house. This will determine the types of houses to look for.
Start looking as early as possible. Beach houses rent quickly, especially during peak vacation seasons.
Choose between renting from a private owner or from an agency. You might get a better deal from an owner, but a better selection from an agency.
Negotiate a price when you find a house you like. Depending on the season and your number of guests, you may get a deal.
Be respectful of the owner’s rules for their house. You may lose your deposit if you aren’t.
