All of our team at Maryland Delaware Rentals by Owners live on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. We love this area and know it well, having been ‘locals’ for the last 17 years. We are excited for this opportunity to create a regional site for vacation home owners This site is locally owned and operated and brings an alternative to the big box sites for those of us who have properties to rent in the Maryland, Delaware and Washington DC areas.
The online listing sites like HomeAway and VRBO no longer work for our rentals. These listing sites have sold out to the big travel sites and the rules have changed, and drastically! They prohibit the homeowner’s ability to communicate directly with the renters. Online booking is now mandatory. Extra booking and ‘convenience’ fees are charged to our renters. They are taking control over our occupancy taxes and security deposits.
As owners, we need to manage our rental homes as we see fit. Direct communication with our renters is a must so that both vacationers and owners have a great rental experience!
