So you have decided to hire a house or apartment for your next family holiday. The popularity of Mooloolaba holiday rentals and G1 Holidays has led to a blast of resources on the Internet which is more overwhelming. With a number of rentals listed online and in real estate offices around the world, how can you find a holiday rental that is suitable for you?

Here are some tips to tell you where to begin the search, when to hire a property and what questions to ask homeowners before staying.

Getting Started

You can view many holiday rental sites on the web. They are well organized and help narrow down the areas that appeal the most and what you expect to find there. Many sites offer to save your favorite properties to a wish list for easy comparison and to communicate directly with the owners, who are eager to share first-hand knowledge of the place where their property is. You should compare amenities, rates, views, and conditions before an agreement. You need to pay a little more while booking through an agent site.

While there are many sites for holiday rentals, do not forget about small sites that offer rentals like your destination, mostly you find properties listed that you do not find on the bigger size. Local real estate offices are a great source if you live within driving distance of the destination and like to tour properties personally with the estate agent.

Tips For Finding A Holiday Rental

Start Early - A lot of people plan their summer vacations right after New Year. In many popular destinations, you will find loyalists - the people renting the same house for the same time year after year.  The large section, begin early and ask for early booking discounts. Sometimes you find, in exchange for the security of having their property hired, the owner gives a discount, up to even 10%.

Know What You Want - Vacationing with an old family member, not very mobile, search a property without many stairs. The plan having a cookout? Ask if the grill is in shape. Take details in writing and get them with you to be sure everything is similar as promised. Have the name and number of people you may call if anything goes wrong during your vacation.

Wait It Out - In the famous holiday destinations, supply outweighs the demand. The nearer the season gets the more owners are scrambling to fill their properties. If you are flexible about your amenities, you can find savings on holiday rentals by searching at the last minute. Do not set your heart on a particular property and keep it in mind that it is a game of race versus reward.


Hiring a house is not like booking a room in a hotel. It is a  contract between the owner and you. If you have to cancel, you can do so in a week or 30 days to get a full refund. Remember that some places have laws against local hiring out their own homes for less than 30 days. Many sites just list agents and not vouch for the properties, so check what help you can get from the site if things don't go as thought of.
