Photo of the week

autumn.jpgimgmax1024

We came across this lovely photo this week (sorry we can't remember where) and it reminded us that a year ago we were posting photos like this and talking about the summer season being over.
If you own a vacation rental it's a good idea to photograph it during each season as these photos can boost off season bookings. 
Did you have a good summer season?
Do you have autumn bookings?

Vacation Rental Marketing and My New Phone |
Vacation Rental Marketing and My New Phone. I probably shouldn’t share this story with you, it’s a little embarrasing but what the hell,. I bought a new smartphone a couple of months ago. A few weeks went by and no one had called me and I was a little dissappointed about that.

A little parched?
How about some watermelon lemonade (with a kick of course)! 
1. Get a sweet & juicy watermelon & cut it up into small pieces
2. Add vodka. Be patient now, let it sit in the fridge for 2 weeks
3. Filter the now infused vodka with a strainer (taking the pulp away)
4. Add fresh squeezed lemon juice, sparking water & lots of ice
5. Enjoy!

Can't wait the 2 weeks? Stop on by It's Italia in Half Moon Bay and have one or two there!

It's Italia – 401 Main Street, Half Moon Bay, open for lunch & dinner
