We are currently prioritizing development of new beach pages, based on the ads submitted. So if you want to advertise your property with us, all it takes is an email from you and we will immediately add your city /beach as a category.
A: You will be contacted in three different ways by information located in you ad. The three ways are by email, by phone and in many cases by someone that visits your website by clicking thru from ours if you have this feature. Each ad has a contact advertiser form that is displayed in three places. This form is used to send you an inquiry. The email contact form allows you to be directly contacted by potential customer. By using our "hidden email" technology you can be directly notified without your email address being "exposed".
