The End of the Season Might Be the Best Time to Book Your Beach House

The summer months are flying by. Perhaps you have put off your vacation plans. Maybe you just want to be the savviest renter you can be. In either case, good news: the end of the season is the perfect time to rent a home at the beach. is your best resource for finding shore house rentals by owners in Cape May, NJ, or any East Coast shore town, including Ocean City, MD and the Delaware beaches, as we approach the end of the season.

Crowds have Dwindled

Most people think of June and July as prime vacation season. If you have ever been to the Jersey Shore during this time, you must be more than familiar with the throngs of families congregating on the beaches and boardwalks. Even the traffic just getting to the beach can be a nightmare. You and your family get to the beach bright and early and discover that they need to trek a mile to find a comfortable spot.

By the time August and September roll around, the crowds have thinned, kids go back to school, and many families have already taken their vacations. However, the weather becomes less intense while remaining beautiful. The beach and other attractions and venues are still open and much less crowded. The ocean is warmer and more inviting than ever.

Lower Rates

The popularity of rentals during June and July causes rates to spike. As we come to the end of the season, though, owners offer more competitive and affordable prices for their listings. In some cases, owners will also reduce their minimum stay, making the end of the season a great time to book a long weekend.

Large groups of vacationers are even more likely to book time during June and July. This means that the owners of rental properties with 4-to-5 bedrooms can experience difficulty finding tenants towards the end of the season, sometimes resulting in discounts. Budget-minded renters traveling with a sizable party should keep this in mind.

Furry Friends

Last, but not least, if you need to bring your animal companions with you (or if you can’t just bear to leave them behind), the relative ease of finding affordable rental properties at the end of the season makes it that much easier to find pet-friendly beach house rentals in Cape May.

If you are unsure whether or not it’s worth renting a vacation home at the end of the season, doubt no more. Experienced vacationers often prefer this time of year.
