What You Need to Know Before Buying a Vacation Home Rental in Kona, Hawaii Are you considering buying a vacation home in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii? First, let me say that owning a vacation rental is currently one of the best investments you can make. You get a home that will most likely appreciate in the years to come, after a drastic, 30 plus percent market drop.

beach: Summerland, CA - Living in Summerland, CA - 10/10/10 01:58 PM
Summerland, CA- Living in Summerland, CA Summerland, CA is a small beach town just East of Santa Barbara. The town started back in the late 1800's as a spiritual retreat and has maintained what some would consider an eclectic charm to this day. Many of the homes in Summerland are built upon the hillside overlooking the ocean and Santa Cruz Island 26 miles offshore. The beach in Summerland is very popular with walkers, dog owners and their dogs who get to run all over the place, horses during the specific times they are allowed and swimmers because the water is usually very calm.
