Look Out for Minimum-Stay Requirements
Pining for a long weekend of beach reading and boogie boarding? You may have to forego a rental and just book a few nights in a hotel or B&B instead. In popular beach towns during peak summer season, it's very common for property owners to require a weeklong minimum stay. This condo in Ocean City, New Jersey, for example, requires a seven-night minimum stay during "peak summer weeks" in July and August; this is pretty standard for many beach towns.
