The economic downturn has taken down many victims in its warpath–the auto industry, housing–but one sector appears to be going strong: vacation home rentals on the Jersey Shore, according to this news story.
Families and executives who consider this serene coast a spring or summer ritual won’t have to sacrifice it this year either–VacationHomeRentals.com is rich with listings at every price point. For this particular home, which has direct access to a private beach, two outdoor showers, beach chairs, Internet, tasteful nautical-inspired furnishings and three bedrooms, you’ll want to get away before the official start of summer to take advantage of lower prices. The weekly rate goes up progressively in May, ranging from $1,400 to $1,700. In June, that sticker rises from $1,800 to $3,700 so get your schedules coordinated quickly.
