Posh Palms With A Pretty Price Tag
For many families, the question this year is not where to go on vacation, but whether. Popular destinations have sweetened the pot for those who decide to go -- take Disney World's free-nights promotion -- but not everyone. But hey, if you're going to drop a pretty penny anyway, why not go for a freaking mansion with a private pool? It's "only" $3000 per week (starting).
Make no mistake, this South Carolina coast 6-bedroom rental is freaking gorgeous. The verandahs! The wet bar! There's even Internet, supposedly, to keep us from enjoying the pool or beach beyond. But once you've splashed out for the house, you won't be able to afford to go anywhere.
Granted the posted starting rate of $2900/week isn't so bad if you take all 13 people the house supposedly fits -- if you were planning to buy hotel rooms for all of them. And with a full kitchen, you could save money on eating out. But with the vacation rental market in a severe depression, you could do better.
