As Manager for Town & Country Real Estate in Westhampton Beach, I often have occasion to speak with homeowners regarding their homes for rent, and quite often get questions about that special vacation beach house, that just didn’t rent last summer. I queried the real estate agents, in my office for some of their tips and here are some suggestions:

While both of these homes are spacious beach houses, Donna Andersen, of our Westhampton Beach office commented that it is also possible to create a sense of order and create a welcoming presence even in smaller homes, which have decidedly smaller spaces, by applying the light, bright, and white principle. As shown in the next photo, though the area is smaller, there is a charming and inviting essence about the room, which is tidy and orderly with a minimal of furnishings.
