Your vacation rental's living room is the main gathering space for your guests to enjoy one another's company. Having enough space for friends and family to gather together is one of reasons that a guest has chosen to spend time in your vacation home. 

  • Comfortable seating for the number of people that your vacation rental sleeps.
  • Cable TV/Satellite Service offering all local channels plus the sport channel package including ESPN networks.
  • WiFi Internet
  • DVD Player
  • TV large enough to watch across the room

The kitchen of your vacation rental is an important space to place close attention to. A full kitchen gives your guests the ability to live like they're at home and is one of the top reasons they have chosen a vacation rental over a hotel.
