About MD/DE Vacation Rentals By Owners

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!

For Homeowners:

  • You will have complete access to your renters and you will be able to control your policies and house rules.
  • This site will always be a listing subscription site.
  • You are in charge of your business. You decide your payment methods, payment schedules and whether or not to use online booking.
  • You control your security deposits and occupancy taxes.
  • You will not be penalized or have your account de-activated for refusing a rental or linking to your website in your listing.
  • Our tech support is local!  You will not be transferred to an overseas customer service bank.

For Renters:

  • There are no booking fees or convenience fees.
  • You can always communicate with the property owner/manager directly.
  • The site is free, so browse through the listings for your next vacation.
