Spring Savings

For families looking to save on their spring beach vacation rental home or condo, our pro tip is to plan your stay after Easter and before Labor Day. The more flexible you can be with your spring travel dates the more you stand to save (i.e. weekday stays are more affordable than weekends). In addition, if you plan your stay between April 15 and May 22, you can take advantage of added savings with special deals, such as our late spring fling special offer, which offers 10% off stays on select dates.


Plan Your Spring Stay

In addition, families who stay with Newman-Dailey also enjoy seasonal beach service and the perks offered with the Newman-Dailey Gift Card, which features hundreds of dollars in savings toward area activities, including dolphin cruises, parasailing and Big Kahuna's Waterpark during your visit.
