It is a major trend. Guests are learning they can stay in a cabin, condo, home or villa for less than a cramped hotel room. Vacation Rental occupancy is going up fast, while hotel stays are down.
Property Owners enjoy having their cake and eating it too. They can stay when they want or earn money when they don't. And many are discovering the sheer joy of sharing the mountain, lake or beach home they love.
Being hospitable has long been admired in many cultures but sometimes abandoned in the hustle and bustle of today's busy world.
