Bonkers season on tap for summer vacation rentals

first_img Full Name* It may not be so easy to book a vacation this year: Rental listings are flying off the market, and prices are soaring. (iStock)After a year of putting travel plans on hold, Americans are eager to embark on their next trip. But finding a place to stay domestically may not be as easy as in years past.By the end of March, 90 percent of vacation homes listed on Vrbo in the Jersey Shore and Cape Cod were booked for July, the New York Times reported. Compare that to 2019, when more than 30 percent of the listings in those areas were still available.At The Redwoods In Yosemite, a company that operates more than 120 vacation homes in Yosemite National Park, bookings for May are 35 percent above what they were in 2019. Bookings for June are up 37 percent; for July, it’s an increase of 27 percent.Read moreTravel roars back — and summer rentals book upThe tri-state rental market’s endless summerHot, hot, hot: Resi market sets new price records in March At Barkwells, a group of dog-friendly vacation rentals in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains, bookings for the rest of the year have grown 30 percent over 2019’s numbers.As guests compete for bookings, prices are on the rise. According to Transparent, a vacation-rentals data company, the national average nightly rate for Airbnb rentals in July and August is around $220. That’s an increase from last year’s $194; in 2019, a typical year, it was $185.And thanks to more workplace flexibility, renters are staying longer. According to Evolve, a hospitality company that manages more than 14,000 short-term rentals, the average length of stay has increased from 3.7 days in 2020 to 4.9 days. Across search engine HomeToGo, the stay length for travelers checking in between May 1 and Sept. 1 is 11 days, a 14 percent increase from 2019.[NYT] — Sasha JonesContact Sasha Jones Email Address* Message*last_img read more

REUTERS/Tiksa NegeriEthiopia and Eritrea declared their “state of war” over on Monday and agreed to open embassies, develop ports and resume flights, concrete signs of a stunning rapprochement that has swept away two decades of hostility in a matter of weeks.The announcement promised to end of one of Africa’s most intractable military stand-offs, a conflict that has destabilised the region and seen both governments funnel large parts of their budgets into security and soldiers.“The people of our region are joined in common purpose,” Ethiopia’s new prime minister Abiy Ahmed said, according to a tweet from his chief of staff, after signing a pact on resuming ties with Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki.Abiy flew to neighbouring Eritrea a day earlier and embraced Isaias on the airport runway. Thousands of Eritreans came onto the streets to cheer them and the two men danced side by side to traditional music from both countries at a dinner that evening.Abiy came to office in April and announced reforms that have turned politics on its head in his nation of 100 million.With the 41-year-old former intelligence officer at the helm, the ruling coalition has ended a state of emergency, released political prisoners and announced plans to partially open up the economy to foreign investors.In his boldest move, Abiy offered last month to make peace with Eritrea, 20 years after the neighbours started a border war that killed an estimated 80,000 people. Full-blown fighting ended in 2000, but their troops have faced off across their disputed frontier ever since.Abiy also said he would honour all the terms of a peace deal, suggesting he might be ready to settle the border row, particularly over the contested border town of Badme.Related U.S. impressed by Ethiopia-Eritrea peace developments Algeria hails relationship development between Ethiopia, Eritreacenter_img Ethiopia and Eritrea reach peace deallast_img read more

Reifer, Haynes appointed to bring back passion says Skerritt

first_imgST JOHN’S, Antigua, CMC – New Cricket West Indies president Ricky Skerritt said the decision to appoint Floyd Reifer and Robert Haynes to interim positions of head coach and chairman of its selection panel respectively, was designed to try and bring back a “sense of pride and aspiration” to the West Indies team. Skerritt said these two key features too often appeared absent from the Windies team in recent times and the moves were in a bid to try and reignite the passion among players.“West Indies cricket, at its best, has always been a representation of the hopes and aspirations of the Caribbean, and an illustration of the heights of excellence that our West Indian people can attain when we work together as one,” said Skerritt before he confirmed the appointments during a media conference which was webcast “live” from the Coolidge Cricket Ground on the CWI website.“That is why West Indies cricket has been aptly described as a ‘public good’ that belongs to millions of West Indian people all across our region and the world. “When our cricket teams and gifted individuals showcase excellence on a world stage, we walk taller as a people, and we beam with pride as we look at our own young West Indians face up with confidence and God-given talent to the best competition from across our globe.”On the decision to appoint Reifer, Skerritt said: “Our landmark decision to introduce a well-suited, young West Indian professional as our men’s team coach is, therefore, a clear indicator of the seriousness of our West Indian first policy and represents a commitment to celebrate the best of what it means to be West Indian.“This decision also underscores the need for fresh thinking and an even more urgent need to embrace our new all-inclusive selection policy and in the midst of change, we have no doubt that our West Indian players, led expertly by Jason Holder, will be well prepared going to the World Cup.” He continued: “He has lived up to the same principles of West Indian excellence that we now insist must prevail. Up to the end of last year, Floyd had been identified as the outstanding, emerging [West Indian] coach.“Our performance record overseas under international coaches has been dismal at best. All of our victories in ICC tournaments have been with the help of [West Indian] coaches. That is also why we have decided to give the opportunity to a young, but seasoned professional, who lives among us, and who has dedicated his life to developing our young people and teaching them our cricket culture.“With a focussed team that will be led by the new No.1 all-rounder in the world, Jason Holder, and filled with a collection of our best possible available [players], I have no doubt that coach Reifer is the right man at the right time.” On the appointment of Haynes, Skerritt said: “He is the most experienced and best suited for this responsibility at this time. We are confident we have found an interim chairman who shares the philosophy of inclusiveness and our belief in the new selection policy.“Because of his impressive record of good relations with players and past players, we have no doubt that [Robert] will engage with players everywhere, strictly in the interest of what is best for West Indies cricket.”The widely-expected appointments of Reifer and Haynes followed a CWI board meeting on Tuesday. The two are expected to remain in the roles through the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 England & Wales and the Windies’ home series against India in July/August. As a result, Richard Pybus, who held the position of interim head coach for the team’s recent, highly-successful home series against England, is to return to his substantive role of high performance director, and the previous selection panel, headed by Courtney Browne, will be replaced.Haynes, Reifer and team captain Jason Holder, currently playing for Northamptonshire in the English County Championship, will form the selection panel for the Windies team that will take part in a One-day International series next month in Ireland, ahead of the World Cup.last_img read more
