About Us

In business since 2003, Vacation Rentals and Shore Summer recently celebrated 10 successful years in business. Both websites are owned and operated by Chris and Maria Kirk, who proudly offer quality vacation rental properties to the online public. With the strength of 25 plus years of combined experience in finance, marketing, commercial real estate, residential investment home real estate and property management, Chris and Maria have developed a wealth of knowledge in successfully pairing property owners with renters who wish to vacation along the United States coastal towns.

Chris and Maria were investment property owners themselves. Their first-hand knowledge of vacation property rental ownership gives them the unique advantage to see rentals from both sides of the fence. From understanding what "quality" really means to valuing the definition of "good tenants", Chris and Maria offer exceptional rental consulting advice to both renters and property owners alike.
