“The vacation rental industry on the Cape and Islands has rapidly grown and evolved during the past two decades, but one thing has remained the same,” says WeNeedaVacation’s co-owner Joan Talmadge, “our expertise in helping homeowners successfully market and manage their rentals and bringing vacationers back to this special place.”

With over 4,000 listings on the Cape and Islands, locally based WeNeedaVacation has been the top rental marketing platform for over 25 years. Homeowners maintain control of the booking process, enjoy direct communication with guests from the start, and define their own payment terms. One longtime homeowner sings WeNeedaVacation’s praises: “I trust the folks that are drawn to [WeNeedaVacation’s] site. Love this company and its integrity and professionalism.”

Whether first time rental homeowners or rental pros, owners are provided the necessary guidance and resources to ensure their success. WeNeedaVacation’s staff, some of whom are experienced vacation rental homeowners themselves, offer one-on-one support, reports on and insight into the vacation rental industry, and meet ups, both in person and virtual, with other Cape and Island homeowners. 

A key to the success of this family-owned business in attracting vacationers has been their ever-evolving digital marketing strategies. Catering to the desires of over 20,000 Facebook followers and almost as many Instagram followers, their team understands the importance of the traditions family and friends have enjoyed here for generations. WeNeedaVacation connects with vacationers and draws them back year after year — and vacationers no doubt appreciate the money they save with WeNeedaVacation’s “no booking fees” policy! 

Their top-notch services also include providing vacationers with a content-rich blog that not only shares local activities, events, and sightseeing suggestions, but first-hand experiences and recommendations, as well as hundreds of YouTube videos highlighting the Cape and Islands.

WeNeedaVacation’s Green Initiative enables vacationers to select homes that offer amenities such as eco-friendly products, recycling, water filters, and EV chargers. Their hope is that demand for Green Homes will grow, encouraging more owners to take measures in providing more environmentally-oriented homes and vacationers to seek them out.

Like most of their homeowners and vacationers, WeNeedaVacation is passionate about the Cape and Islands, and hopes that these cherished places can be experienced by the present generation and countless generations to come.
