Vacation Rentals Better Business Bureau Reliability Seal

Find Your Next Vacation Rental Home With Home Away Today! A vacation rental is a term used by the travel industry that refers to renting a furnished apartment, condo or home for a temporary basis. Rentals can range from an inexpensive one bedroom economy apartment to a lavish 6 bedroom home on a golf course overlooking the ocean.

These vacation rental properties are generally owned by individuals who generate income by renting while they're not being used.

Vacation rental properties are also great for holding a large group of family or friends in a quaint, relaxed setting.
