If you’re in need of a break from your job or school work, you should take a quick vacation! One place that’s always fun to visit is the beach. The sand and seashore will definitely help you relax.
When you go to the beach, you can stay in a hotel, camp, or rent a beach house. Beth recently rented a beach house for the weekend. Listen to her describe the experience!

I recently learned that a friend of a friend owns a beach house on the Oregon coast. The owner of the house often rents her property to other people and she uses a property manager to arrange the rental agreements.
I was interested in renting the house, so I looked for information about the house online. I found pictures of the house and also checked to make sure that it is pet friendly, because I wanted to bring my dog. The house is close to the beach and has three bedrooms, so I can stay there with several friends.
I called the property manager to find out the price and availability of the house. The house was available so I gave the agent my credit card number to reserve it for the weekend. The cost is $135 per night. There’s a $55 non-refundable cleaning fee and a $15 booking fee. My friends and I are going to split the cost.
I can’t wait to go to the beach!

I’ve rented houses before, and it’s usually a very easy and enjoyable experience. It’s especially fun and affordable if you do it with several other people and share the cost of the house. You can also share cooking and cleaning duties, and if you want to be really efficient, you can all carpool together!
Take it easy,
John

I use to rent house alone.I think it’s instresting,you can do what you want to do when you are alone,however,you must do the cleaning yourself,cooking yourself and take care yourself. I think it can exercise ourselves !
