How many times have you gone to a website, seen the Realtor's Photo and then you go to meet them and you don't recognize them? it happens.

Booking your Visit - 05/12/11 01:52 PM
You may not want to wait too long to book your visit to our area. According to the rental companies they are almost at 100% capacity from Memorial Day through Labor Day. I am being told it is hard to find a room right now. Make sure you look at these sites for possible rentals while in the area and don't forget to use www.vrbo.com The Vacation by Owner Website sometimes can be your best source for a rental in the area.
