Why Booking Direct Makes a Difference
What is a vacation rental? How do I know if the bedroom set-up is right for my family? How close is this condo to area activities? Can I use a tent or canopy on the beach? There are many things to consider when planning the perfect vacation for your family and Garden City Realty is here to make the process easier. We have an impressive inventory of 400 vacation rentals comprised of both homes and condos, oceanfront to the third row, and 30 houses that will let you bring your dog!

At Garden City Realty we have a team dedicated to assisting guests in finding the right rental property within our large inventory. Our job is to combine our property knowledge, along with area expertise, with your needs to find you and your family the right place to stay on your vacation.
By picking up the phone and dialing (800) 395-5930 you get to talk to a person that is located in the town you are planning to visit and who takes an interest in the small details that can change your whole vacation. When was the last time a third-party site took an hour out of their afternoon to measure every doorway in the lower level of the house you are considering, just to make sure that Grandpa’s wheelchair is completely accessible to all areas? P.S. we can get you answers like this, you just have to call!
In House, Local Experts. We all love living at the beach! We spend our free time eating at local restaurants, exploring the beaches, checking out events and activities in the area, golfing, surfing, and more. This gives you personalized, first-hand feedback about where to eat or what to do. Our recommendations are genuine and heartfelt, as we want to connect our guests with places and people that will create lasting memories like we have with our families. We want our guests to have the most memorable vacation possible which is why our marketing team at Garden City Realty has created a page that contains recommendations along with contact information for each establishment. This page includes information regarding local shopping, concerts, shows, grocery stores, events and more. Click here to view our area concierge guide.
Property Knowledge. Our team in Guest Services is constantly touring properties, both old favorites and new additions. When we complete our tours, we learn about the different features, amenities, locations, and layouts of the homes and condos we represent. This allows us to connect your family to the perfect rental property. We want to show you the Garden City Realty difference.
Garden City Realty also offers an in-house, full-service team of maintenance technicians, housekeeping inspectors, and laundry department. These teams were created to prepare each house and condo for your arrival and address issues or concerns that may occur from normal wear and tear or even during your stay. Our outstanding teamwork and personalized service continues through your vacation. While we don’t want you to encounter any problems on vacation, we understand that unexpected things happen: the Wi-Fi won’t connect, the toilet keeps running, or there are not enough pillows. Don’t worry, give us a call and we will be able to connect you with the appropriate department to ensure the problem is resolved. We even have an after-hours emergency line available to our guests.

We work directly with homeowners to ensure you don’t pay more than necessary. This eliminates third-party booking sites and you don’t have to worry about their added fees and charges. Regardless of which site you’ve placed your reservation, the policies and procedures remain the same. Not only do you get the best price, but you can also be sure that the information you receive is up to date and accurate. We are confident in our pricing and we dedicated a whole page on our website to our best price guarantee. Check it out here.
