There are several ways for the Cape Cod visitor to find and rent the perfect vacation rental home. One way is to contact the Chamber of Commerce of the town you'd like to base yourself in. On a Chamber of Commerce web site, you'll find information about rental homes and information to direct you to Realtors (known as Estate Agents in the U.K. ) who list and manage rental homes. There will also be information about other lodging choices such as hotels, motels, inns, B&Bs and cottage communities. Here is a short list of Chamber of Commerce websites often suggested for use by Cape Cod forum DEs and forum regulars (however, each Cape Cod town has their own Chamber of Commerce) :

Trip Advisor's flipkey.com is another web site that can be used to find vacation rental homes.

Whichever option you choose: Be sure to ask specific questions about the home's location, amenities, number and size of bedrooms and beds, what is provided (such as: a washer/dryer, dishwasher, sheets, towels, pillows, grill, parking spaces, number of people allowed to stay on the property,  beach access, time of arrival and departure, etc.). Also, make sure you understand all the terms and conditions of payment and cancellation policies.

Finding the perfect vacation rental can greatly enhance your Cape Cod visit!
