Shannon Russo - It gave me great pride and pleasure to be the driving force behind the WeNeedaVacation.com Homeowner Blog from it's inception in November 2011 until September 2014. During that time, I also had the opportunity to educate and empower homeowners through the production of a Homeowner Video Tutorial series, the design of all WeNeedaVacation.com email communications, and assisting Cape and Islands homeowners with the knowledge I have gained from owning a just-off Cape vacation rental home for over ten years.

    Hi Vicki. We have had a couple other similar requests, but the fact is, that would be a huge undertaking. I think we’ll stick to focusing all of our efforts on promoting our site and property listings, creating valuable resources for vacationers and homeowners, like this blog, and providing our special brand of personalized customer support. Best, Shannon

    Hi Shannon,
    Do you see this as a possibility for the weneed site? We spend 4-5 weeks at our house in June and July and rent the ‘best’ weeks. I have often wanted to spend a couple of nights in a ‘similar’ house (location or amenities) just for variety. I don’t want to pack up my house – I just want to ‘trade’ a few nights with a like minded family. My lake beach for your Nauset bungalow. Not the whole week just 2 nights. Following me? Have you ever come across this request and the possibility of a ‘meeting place’ to do this?
    Thank you in advance for your input.
    Best, Vicki
