Exclusive 30A’s 10 Most Popular Luxury Vacation Rentals of 2018

1st November 2018

If you’re making a rental decision, you may wonder which of Exclusive 30A’s vacation rentals have been the most popular from this year. We did too, so we decided to compile a list to acknowledge and celebrate our ten best properties, based on performance (i.e. occupancy percentage). While this is not a perfect way to represent popularity due to factors that can influence the numbers—such as owners’ varying usage or a restoration—it does give us a good idea of the available homes our renters found most intriguing. Be sure to check out our other gorgeous homes as well, because we are sure that they will not disappoint.

1) #66 Sunset Ridge

A vacation rental that truly takes guests’ breath away as soon as they set foot inside, the deceivingly gorgeous interiors of Sunset Ridge are sure to amaze. The house has a very novel design that is highlighted by the cathedral ceilings, loft room, and porches. Our Exclusive 30A team has taken full advantage of this exquisite architecture by masterfully decorating it to enhance its true beauty and elegance. Located in the popular Park District of Watercolor, guests can take full advantage of the nearby Watercolor Beach Club, shops, and restaurants during their stay.
