There’s No Place Like (A Vacation Rental) Home:  Why Homes Outshine Hotels

12/14/2018 | by nicole dawn reiber | Blog


A recent and popular trend with business travelers as well as families on the go is to stay in a vacation rental home instead of a hotel. If you haven’t explored renting a home in place of reserving a hotel room, keep reading…  

Three good reasons why we know vacation rental homes are better than hotels:

1. It’s about space (lots more) and convenience.

  • You can spread out and make yourself at home.
  • There is more privacy for sleeping and all other activities.
  • Everyone isn’t sharing one bathroom.
  • You can have fresh brewed coffee (in a Keurig no less) at any time and in your pajamas (one of my favorite reasons).
  • There are multiple televisions to match your viewing preferences.
  • Some homes have garages to protect your vehicles, golf clubs, bikes and other gear.

2. Hotels cost more than rental homes.

  • Multiple families, couples or corporate executives can save by sharing a home.
  • You can eat healthier and save money by preparing meals in the home.
  • Parking is free.
  • You can avoid baggage fees by packing less because your laundry can be done in the home.
  • There are no hidden costs for the internet, pool towels, laundry or more than one bed.

3. Vacation rentals offer more flexibility and benefits.

  • Homes are usually cleaner, safer and in quieter neighborhoods than hotels.
  • Versatile booking options include length of stay as well as early arrivals and late departures.
  • You can choose from a variety of amenities such as private pools and spas and you’re not expected to share them with strangers.
  • You can mix with the locals and discover the community’s hidden jewels such as the best restaurants, bars, museums and hiking trails (another favorite).
  • Homes offer a variety of floor plans and may be well suited for business meetings or team building conferences.
  • You can work and play at the same location if you choose a home with a ping-pong or pool table, bikes, kayaks, nearby trails or a swimming pool.

Vacation rental homes are literally everywhere. Once you’ve determined your destination you can find the ideal home by locating a local Online Travel Agency (OTA), searching the homes they have listed on their websites and contacting the managers. Booking directly with OTAs and avoiding the large vacation rental markets is a BIG money saver!
