Proposed TV series to focus on vacation home rentals

The vacation home rental industry must be coming of age: it's poised to get its own reality show.

PineRidge Film and Television (producers of Samantha Brown's show "Passport to Europe," among other programs) and Discover Vacation Homes have created a promo video for a proposed new show, "Living Large on Vacation." 

According to Discover Vacation Homes consultant Rick Fisher, who is helping develop the show, each episode will match a group of travellers who have never stayed in a vacation home with a property that will knock their socks off.

The promo focuses strongly on two benefits of vacation home rentals over hotel rooms: spaciousness and cost savings. Fisher says the show will also highlight vacation homes as a good option for family reunions and other group holidays. 

The first episodes will all be shot at properties in the United States, which may explain why there doesn't seem to be much emphasis on the opportunity to meet locals while renting a self-catering property (many North American vacation rental homes are clustered in resorts rather than existing neighbourhoods).

The program will be promoted at Fisher's Vacation Home Expo, slated to return to Atlanta from January 23 to 25, 2009.

Advantage of California Beach Vacation Rentals

Location :-
One of the benefits of California beach vacation rentals is location. Most vacation rentals like hotels and resorts are alongside one thousand miles of coastal line

Overlooking Views:-
Another benefit is not missing the beautiful scenery as vacation rentals offer overlooking views of California beaches, cliffs, waves and sun. Don’t you think it is romantic to quietly watch the setting of the sun with your partner? Yes, it is really romantic and it is possible here if you rent
