Our favorite destination: Topsail Island. I actually have to give credit to my friend Colleen for turning us on to both VRBO and Topsail Island. Back in 2008 when we lived in Charlotte, our good friends rented a beach house. They had a spare room, so they invited us to stay a few days with them (we only had one kid then). We went and LOVED it. They had a gorgeous 4 bedroom house right on the beach, and when they told us the price they paid, we couldn’t believe it.
They may have changed the offer, but it was valid at the time this was posted. Also, it may have just been a standard coupon that you get as a member. It took a couple of weeks until the completely free coupon came, so depending on their current offer or what they are sending, it may still be on its way. We hope so!
I am reluctant to write a review because I am afraid the cabin won’t be available next time we want to go there. We celebrated our 30th anniversary by spending a week in this lovely redwood cabin in an enchanting setting with a bubbling brook and towering redwoods. There were beautiful fresh flowers when we arrive. The place was immaculate. It was a great home base for exploring the area- Russian River, Pacific coast, wine country, only cons were the shower hot water is a bit erratic and the kitche could be a bit better equiped if you like to cook a lot. These minor things were far outweighed by all fabulous things about this rental.
If you don’t wish to travel by air, there are other options that are not less comfortable. Of course, they depend upon your destination and financial abilities as well. Thus, you can travel by train, ship (there are lots of luxurious cruises nowadays, by the way) or you can rent a car and travel across the country without any hassle associated with your luggage, comfort, time etc. Car rent companies offer a rich variety of car models, makes, brands to fit your budget and needs.
