10 Reasons We Love Vacation Rentals
We just love vacation rentals! Which is why making our summer and holiday plans is so easy for us. We already know where we’ll be staying during our vacation.
A vacation rental – of course!
There’s such a variety of vacation rental homes to choose from all over the globe. Whether you prefer a grand villa, a cozy condo, or a unique experience like a yurt, we know you’ll love staying at a vacation rental too.
Why you ask?
Well, let’s get right to explaining!
Here are our top ten count down for why we love vacation rentals and why you should too starting at…
Number 10- Pet Friendly
We love vacation rentals because we can bring our two dogs along with us to enjoy adventures with the family.
By selecting a pet friendly location you can save as much as $2000 because you won’t need to board your dogs. Not only will you love your accommodations, you dogs will too!
Number 9- Laundry Loving
Vacation rentals usually come with washers and dryers.
If you are a frequent flyer then you know luggage fees and limits in baggage can put a strain on any fashionista’s vacay.
But with a washer and dryer at your vacation rental, a quick load run mid-way in your stay will help you be fresh and ready to carry on for the duration of your trip.
Also, I like to run the clothes through the washer and dryer the night before we leave. Then pack them clean in the suitcases.
I don’t know about you …but I usually get home tired and the last thing I want to do is laundry. This way all I have to do when I open my suitcase is to put my clean clothes away in the drawers.
Number 8- Wide Open Spaces
Unlike a cramped hotel room, a vacation rental gives every one plenty of space to gather together.
Then when you wish to slip away from the maddening crowd all you need to do is go into another room, such as your bedroom.
More and more multi-generational families are gathering at vacation rentals to be closer to each other and reconnect. What’s not to love about that?
Number 7 – Tech Is Tops
And of course the Millennials all love their tech, especially those gizmos requiring WiFi. Most homes now have free internet. You’ll be hard pressed to find that in hotels.
Number 6 – Privacy Please
When you book a vacation rental house you’ll be able to enjoy your vacation in solitude and privacy. There are no hotel lobbies to trudge through. You’ll have the hot tub to yourself. The views from your private deck or balcony will be yours alone to soak in.
Number 5 – Fabulous Vistas
And speaking of great views, you’ll be amazed at how many vacation rentals have views to die for.
Some, like Abalone Bay in Sea Ranch, are ensconced in unique communities, rich with history. They provide novel experiences that enrich, enlighten and help you forget your work-a-day world back home.
Number 4 – Lasting Memories are Made
Taking your holiday at a vacation rental offers up plenty of opportunities to make memories. Shared experiences with friends and family bring you back to the moment they happened, reconnecting you to a time of joy, relaxation, and even love.
You’ll surely want to come back year after year to build on the memories.
Number 3- Adventures, Experiences and Exploration
Quite frequently the owners of vacation rentals want to make sure you are provided information about places to explore, and favorite experiences to try out. You might try hiking, renting a bike, swimming in the lake, river, or ocean. There may be a recreation center or park that offers kids plenty of activities. And not forgetting your pet, you may even enjoy an adventurous romp in the fields or local dog park.
Number 2- Connecting with Loved Ones
We love how vacation rentals provides our family an opportunity to slow down and reconnect with each other. It’s a time just for us. It may be over a board game, a cup of tea, or a glass of wine. The quiet times are often the most memorable of all.
Number 1- Its All about the Feasting!
For us when we stay at a vacation rental, we have our favorite foods, our planned menus, and plenty of cooks to give a hand.
Holidays that also include great feasting are our favorite times to book a vacation rental. Whether its grilled hot dogs and hamburgers for Memorial Day Weekend, or Turkey for Thanksgiving, gathering at the table with your friends and family makes the holiday at any vacation rental special.
