Additional information about rental rates
I'd prefer to discuss rates via e-mail- that way we all have records. We are pretty flexible- tell us what you have in mind...
The new VRBO template is imprecise-- and really doesn't allow for fluctuations in rates re: holidays, long weekends etc. For example we frequently can offer a free monday if you book the weekend - so , best to talk specifics one on one.
