This site features two high quality vacation rentals located at Old Orchard Beach(OOB) , Maine.
The site is mean't to provide all information necessary for both new and returning vacationers wishing to experience a quality family vacation experience on the 7 miles of sandy Old Orchard Beach (OOB), Maine.
We have established repeat seasonal customers for our original property(Condo) since 2002. As our normal policy we provide all current season customers exclusivity to reserving their next year's vacation experience up until September 30th of each calendar year. Thereafter, we market the available weeks to all others wishing to experience and maybe even themselves maintain the magic of an OOB vacation year after year.
Our cottage at Ocean Park(OP) is a more recent addition in 2018. It too, is just a few steps from the 7 miles of beach as well and provides an ocean view within a beach cottage setting.
I have implemented this website to migrate my available rental properties over away from the HomeAway/VRBO/vacation rentals.com online reservations network due to their NEW ADDITIONAL bookings fee to all customers implemented in 2017. This "poaching" policy by them costs you, the vacationer , even more $$ for your vacation and there is absolutely no value add in what they provide for their hefty additional fees(upwards of 15%).
I fully terminated my subscriptions with these rental platforms in May 2017 to keep ALL costs down to both the vacationer and also to myself. I don't mind helping Owners to strategize their own migration away from these platforms for their primary marketing strategy. Since I terminated services with them I still achieve 100% bookings for the entire peak seasons. All without commissions and fees.
I am also now utilizing occasional FaceBook , Google Ad pages , and Pinterest for marketing these two rentals although with a solid repeat customer base each season my marketing efforts are minimized on these platforms.
