There are so many things to consider as you prepare for you upcoming vacation. See our list of Frequently Asked Questions below for quick answers. If you still can't find what you are looking for contact our office for additional assistance.
When you stay in a hotel, you never quite get the essence of a Destination. From everyone having their own comfortable bed, to being able to cook meals in your own fully-stocked Kitchen, the perks of renting a Vacation Home are endless.
Our Vacation Homes are stocked in such a way that you always feel like you're coming "Home" to your "Vacation Home" rather than returning to a small hotel room. Whether you love having a Screened Porch to relax on, the conveniences of a Kitchen and Washer & Dryer, or your own yard to run and play in, we've got you covered! This is what we call "Livin' like a Local"!
How do I book a Vacation Home?
We want to make planning your Beach Getaway super easy for you! You can use our handy Search Bar for quick searches, or look for more specific Amenities with our Advanced Search Filters. Not sure what you want or where you want to be? Give us a call ~ we're here to help, and no one knows the are better than we do! We work here, we live here, we play here!
Is it Secure to Book Online?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you Book online with Seaside Vacations. We offer the use of a Secure Server. All supplied personal/credit information is transmitted via Secure Server Layer technology (SSL) and then encrypted into our payment gateway providers database. It will only be accessible by those authorized with special rights to such systems. They are required to keep the information confidential. After a transaction, your confidential information (credit info, social security number, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.
What is this Express Check-in you offer?
At Seaside Vacations, our philosophy is that your vacation should be all about YOU! We are very excited to offer our Guests Express Check-in. You've waited all year for your vacation, the last thing you want to do upon arrival is drive to an office and wait in line to pick up keys.
Guests love our Express Check-in - No need to wait in line! You will be mailed your Check-in information prior to arrival. Our Homes feature Keyless Entry, and your Code will be sent to you with your Arrival Information. Check-in at most locations is 3 PM, and Check-out is 10 AM. You will arrivae to find your home clean, inspected, and ready for your family to make memories!
We will be here for you.....before, during, and after your visit to the Shore!
What are some fun things to do while we are there?
Whether visiting Chincoteague Island or Ocean City, you will not run out of things to do! Be sure to check out our Area Guides for each Destination right here on our website. We've shared some of our very favorites with you - everything from Boat Tours to who has the best wings. Looking for something in particular? Give us a call - we love every opportunity to chat with our Guests, and want to help you make your time here as special as possible!
Can I bring my pet with me?
We offer many Pet-Friendly Homes in Virginia, but Ocean City Condos/Homes are NOT Per-Friendly. Just check under our "Pet Friendly Homes" search option to see which homes will welcome your Dog with a $100 Pet Fee. More than 1 Dog only permitted with Seaside Vacations' approval and additional Pet Fee. It's always more fun when the entire family can come - including our fur-babies!
What if I arrive after your office has already closed for the day?
No worries at all! Thanks to our Keyless Entry, you'll never have to worry about rushing to an office and waiting in line to pick up your keys ~ whew, right?! If you know you're going to arrive after dark, give us a call so we can leave a few lights on at your Vacation Home to welcome you.
What is provided for me at my Rental Home?
All of Homes are well-stocked with your comfort in mind. Our Vacation Homes are owned by families just like you, and are equipped for family-living. You will find pillows, blankets, cookware, and more in each of our Homes. Want to know if a Home has something specific? Just give us a call.
Upon arrival, you'll be welcomed by an Amenity Bag that will have a Starter Supply of paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap, a sponge, and a few trash bags. So, if you don't feel like going to the store right away, we've got you covered. If you've ordered discounted water park tickets, they'll be waiting for you, as well!
Why do you use an Accidental Damage Waiver in lieu of a Security Deposit?
Vacations are expensive - adding an additional Security Deposit can be taxing on your budget. Our Accidental Damage Waiver is a wonderful thing, and covers you up to $1,500 in Accidental Damage. So if your little one knocks over the lamp, don't panic - simply file a report with us right away and we'll do the rest. Damages must be reported before your departure.
