Is it better to rent a vacation home or a hotel room?
The answer definitely may depend, but it mostly varies upon how many of your family members are traveling, for big families and groups, a vacation rental is a true relief! Let’s see why:
1. The Budget Factor
Renting a house or condo can be surprisingly affordable! Just divide the cost of one vacation rental home with friends or family, many group travelers find that renting a home is much cheaper than renting enough hotel rooms to accommodate their entire group.
2. Location, location…
Opting for a vacation rental simply because acceptable hotels aren’t available in some areas is a constant trend nowadays. If you’d like to stay in a remote location or anywhere that’s not big with tourists, you may have trouble finding a decent hotel. Booking a vacation rental is the perfect way to ensure you get to stay closer to where you want to be.
3. Space and amenities
No more kids bickering over who got what side of the bed and what to watch on the only TV in the hotel room! In a rental home, there may be many TVs, and there will certainly be plenty of beds. Each child might even get their own room. If you’d like to pack lighter or have more savings, you can even cook at home or do your own laundry.
4. Pets may join the fun too!
Although not all vacation homes allow pets, many do. Yes, many hotels now accept pets, too, but a house will give your pet more space to run. And if your dog gets nervous and barks late at night, your neighbors may be too far away to complain about the noise.
5. Live it up, the local way!
With a vacation rental, you’ll likely stay in a more residential part of town, instead of on a tourist strip. Best of all, you’ll be in contact with the homeowners, who have probably lived or vacationed in your rental, themselves. Be sure to ask them for insider tips on the best restaurants and activities in the area.
