As January of 2017 quickly draws to a close, so too does the first month of this year’s prime booking season. At Homestead, our rental team has been encouraged by the number of guests who have chosen to reserve their vacation early! In fact, there are many homes in our rental inventory that are already booked solid for the summer. But there’s no need to be discouraged if you’ve not yet finalized your Cape May vacation. New rental listings enter our inventory year-round. With that said, we understand that guests are sometimes perplexed by properties with little to no reservations in place at this time of year. Well, we’re here to assure you that such properties are lucky finds, as many of them simply do not yet have a rental history in place. Such history often takes a few years to construct…and it has to begin somewhere. Why not with you? Here’s a selection of rental properties that currently feature a wide range of availability for the 2017 season. We encourage you to explore these listings and get your vacation started!
