This summer you can have your pick of vacation homes all around the world: Lake Tahoe, Vancouver, London, Vail, or Paris. You name it. How about Allandale? That's right. Allandale is home to a half a dozen vacation homes. They are referred to as vacation rental homes and it is a small growth industry. Typically, renting out summer vacation homes is something more commonly found in Europe or well-known vacation spots like Aspen or Vail or out at the lake. With the explosive growth of Austin's own HomeAway, the company that owns HomeAway.com, VRBO.com and VacationRentals.com, you are now finding vacation rental listings like the ones in Allandale with names like Hill House Allandale, or Halcyon House, or the Hancock Cottages in neighborhoods everywhere.
