Sk, there are multiple layers of answers to your question. Most of 2009 showed that occupancy was down around 30% over prior years. I have been seeing many previous vacation homes now being used for long term rental units which can add a twist to leaving the property fully furnished or moving it out and either selling or storing the furniture and personal property.
While it seems to be a good to buy almost anywhere it should depend on how you want this 'investment' to perform. How much down will you need to accquire the property, how is your down payment money performing in it's current placement, would there be any tax advantages for you, would you need a loan and what would those costs be, management service and just scratching the surface of questions that need to be analyzed before determining a ROI.
There are plenty of profitable vacation homes out there, and good reasons for them. I would agree with Trish Hall as will supplement the cost of ownership.

SK - I have been telling me clients for years that a vacation rental will not pay for itself - it will only supplement the cost of ownership. Honestly.
