BeachHouse Review

BeachHouse is a sales and rental site that focuses only on ocean-front real estate in the U.S. and a handful of international locations. The site’s formula is pretty simple. If you have a beach house to rent, you can buy a basic advertisement with 10 photos for $149 annually. If you want to add more photos; manage your calendar on the site; or get other bells and whistles, you pay more.

However, this site is simply advertising your rental. You manage the rental from start to finish, listing your name and contact information in your advertisement. When you secure a rental, you check out the potential tenants and collect payment yourself.

Competing sites, such as Airbnb and VRBO, charge commissions, rather than straight advertising fees. Those commissions can be far more expensive in the long run. However, you also get payment processing and a wider reach.

Recommendations

If you don’t mind the management and you regularly rent out your beach house, this site’s reasonable listing cost seems well worth the price. BeachHouse shows up high in search results for people looking for beach houses in many major tourist markets, so it may bring in ample renters without the excessive fees charged elsewhere. However, if you want to keep your house rented, we’d also suggest listing with Airbnb. The industry leader is just so well-known that many potential customers never look further.
