Miami, FL, May 5, 2009—With soothing sunny weather and flowers around the greens, May and June may be the best time for a golf vacation. However, the idea of staying in an expensive golf resort—and paying hundreds of dollars in green fees—may be off-putting to even the most fanatical golfers., the leading online vacation rental directory, comes to the rescue with apartments, condos and cottages that provide more space (and kitchens) at a lower price than those golf resorts. They also provide non-golfing pleasures like swimming, boating, tennis, water sports, theater and outlet shopping to keep the rest of the family happy.
