We take pride in sharing the benefits, as well as showcasing the advantages of entrusting your property to a qualified manager.

 

FOR GUESTS

As a guest, vacation rentals are a great alternative to hotels, offering additional space, privacy, convenience, and amenities. As we continue navigating the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to point out vacation rentals offer a cleaner, more socially-distanced experience as well, with fewer touchpoints and outside interaction compared to hotels.

Vacation rentals also present you with a unique opportunity to create a more personalized, memorable vacation experience compared with traditional hotels. You’ll have the practical comfort of an actual residence, the ability to explore the neighborhood, and the opportunity to discover aspects of your destination you might not encounter when staying at a hotel. If you’re vacationing with family, vacation rentals are an excellent option, typically offering multiple bedrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, and easy access to local entertainment.

 

FOR PROPERTY OWNERS

Safely renting your space as a property owner through a professional manager can be an easy and reliable revenue source with a significant return on investment. You’ll also be able to use the property when you choose, spending your vacations there with family while renting it to guests the rest of the year.

A professional vacation rental manager will handle logistics, securing responsible guests, and maximizing your return through an expert understanding of the industry and in-depth knowledge of the local community. They’ll also manage cleaning the property to the highest standards, advertise, coordinate inquiries, collect deposits and balances, generate agreements, and follow-up post-rental so that you can sit back and enjoy the experience.

Americans around the country are worried about the ramifications of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Thousands of parents also are dealing with having their children at home 24-hours a day.

“Even for parents who love hanging with their kids, you can only take so much family time before you start to get stressed,” says Craig A. Knippenberg, a licensed social worker who has provided child and family counseling services in Metro Denver for more than 35 years.

He usually recommends that parents try to be 80 percent consistent with their parenting strategies. In the current circumstances, however, he advises to let some things go.

Here are a few recommendations:

Maintain structure. Explain the schedule for the day to your children. They need (reinforced, consistent) structure. For example, let them know the periods for homework, chores, free time, dinner/family time, and bed. Post the plan where they can see it.

Make time for yourself. Let your children know that there will be periods that are “your time.” Your children should not bother you and find ways to entertain themselves. Use these intervals to maintain your mental health by connecting with others, meditating, journaling, exercising, or resting.  Knippenberg recommends letting children know that disturbing you will result in a loss of privileges.

Encourage time for free play. While social distancing is essential, getting outside in the fresh air is encouraged.  Sunshine has a positive impact on energy, mood, and overall health. Typically, children will say they don’t have anything to do, but they almost always find something to do or explore once they are outdoors.

Limit screen time. Avoid allowing your children to binge-watch television. Although you can be a little more lenient than usual, limit viewing and gaming to one-hour blocks.

Get out the games. Dust off the old board games like Monopoly, Life, and Clue. Reverting to simpler times often is a stress reliever.

Be adventurous and creative. Involve your children in brainstorming new ideas and games. The minds of children show few boundaries.  Develop an indoor treasure hunt or carnival games made from items from the home.

Provide emotional outlets for your children. Establish quality time for talking as a family about the situation and the news your children are hearing. Don’t overexposure your children to the news outlets.  Address their anxieties and feelings regarding missed opportunities due to being homebound.

Stay in touch with your support community. Schedule times for phone or social media contact. Check in with your friends and relatives. Encourage grandparents to video chat and keep connected.

When you’re here enjoying your vacation, it can be overwhelming to try and fit in all the fun activities and attractions North Myrtle Beach has to offer. Fortunately, there are a ton of options for events and festivals that, by nature, are meant to be dropped in and out of at your leisure. In addition to not worrying about arriving on time (many of our recommendations are all-day events), its always nice to take a step down from arenas and major venues and enjoy local vendors, live areal music, and traditional, savory Southern food.
Here are the Fall festivals that should be on your to-do list while staying with Thomas Beach Vacations:

Irish Italian International Festival

La Belle Amie Vineyard North Myrtle Beach

One of the most unique and often underrated activities to enjoy on a vacation is a visit to a vineyard. A perfect idea for the Fall season, as the weather cools, is strolling among La Belle Amie Vineyard.
