Frequently Asked Questions


A wavecation can be a surf trip, a surf vacation, a surfari, a surfcamp, a boat charter, a trip with the bros, or a ladies surf & yoga retreat.  A wavecation can be a lot of things, but there's ONE THING that defines it...a vacation with WAVES. 

A wavecation is being able to check the waves in the morning... FROM THE BED of your vacation rental or hotel. 

A wavecation is relaxing on the deck of your house watching the waves peel. 

A wavecation is running out the back door and catching a few waves before breakfast. 

A wavecation is sitting in the lineup and waving to your kids playing on the beach. 

Forget about strapping boards to the car, parking hassles, and leaving the family behind while you drive around checking the surf.  Next time you're heading away from home to enjoy some waves on vacation, take more than just a surf trip, take a WAVECATION.

Wavecation...we get you closer

We ONLY offer surf accommodations within a short walk of the waves. We all know how frustrating in can be looking through dozens of listings, while consulting satellite maps and surf guide books, trying to decode homeowners pictures and read between the property description lines all in an effort to figure out how close it REALLY is to the waves. At Wavecation, we've found all the best surf vacations for you. We tell you what surf breaks are closest, and how far a walk they are from where you're staying. Decide what type of wave you want, then use our powerful and surf-specific search functions to find places to stay right at the waves!

YES.  We take marketing your property very seriously. We hope you to do.  The web is littered with high volume, low quality vacation rental sites, Wavecation is not one of them.

We could try and convince you by explaining how we charge a lot less than the big guys but work just as hard.  We email, call, visit, text, blog, post threads and run ads every day letting people know about YOUR incredible property listed on AND the surfer friendly search features we've created. But it all boils down to the age old wisdom... you get what you pay for.

If you think you have a wavecation property and would like to list with us please click here.  If you have more questions please contact us.  Leave us your phone number and we'll be more than happy to give you a call.

GREAT!  We want you to.  We are here to help you get the greatest value out of your vacation home, hotel, or other type of property.  If the other sites are working keep using them.  Let us help you fill the empty weeks.  The great news is usually the best surf season is not the rental high season.  We can help you get increased booking for the shoulder and off-season.  If you have no empty weeks, well then please call us and tell us your secret!  

At Wavecation our goal is to help you reach a niche market, one that you may be missing through more traditional listing sites.  We don't have the same number of views as the big sites, but that's okay, we want more qualified views per property.  We go for quality over quantity.

Whether you have a surf hotel in Costa Rica or a beach front vacation rental in Florida, click here to list with us.  If you have more questions please contact us.
