Have you traveled recently and stayed in a hotel? Could you believe the small room, parking fees, closed exercise area and lack of room service? The extra perks you usually enjoy in a hotel are missing. It’s time to consider another option. How about a vacation rental?
Make Your Own Meals
In a hotel, you might have a mini-fridge or microwave (if you’re lucky). In your vacation home, you can have breakfast in your own kitchen. Buy groceries on the day you arrive so you can make sandwiches for lunch, and then find a local restaurant to enjoy for dinner. Most homes you can rent have fully stocked kitchens with large fridges. Keep your drinks cold, and have plenty of ice without walking down the hotel hallway.
Many vacation homes have laundry facilities, so you don’t have to pack outfits for every day. Bring half as many clothes and suitcases and do laundry one evening while watching a movie on your own TV. Even if you don’t plan to do laundry, it is nice to have the option in case the need arises.
Bring Your Friends
Rent a home that has more than one bedroom and bring another couple with you. One group of schoolteachers recently stayed in a vacation home that had enough bedrooms for four couples. They had a marvelous time soaking in their own hot tub and saved the expense of four hotel rooms.
Stay at the Beach
Why spend so much of your time looking for parking at the beach each day? Instead, consider staying in one of the Waterfront Rentals Newport Beach CA. You can sit on your terrace and enjoy your morning coffee looking out at the ocean. Then grab your surfboard and walk to the beach. It can’t get better than that!
Enjoy Your Home Away from Home
Rather than a cookie-cutter hotel room, you will be able to have your own living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. You will have the freedom to spread out and enjoy plenty of space. And when you want to play a board game, you will have a dining table and can easily gather. You won’t have to use the elevator to get to your friend’s room on another floor.
When you are staying for a week or traveling with a group, there is no question — you will spend less when renting a vacation home. You will save money by eating some of the meals in your own kitchen. It will cost less to stay in one home, rather than several hotel rooms.
Consider a vacation home next time you travel, you may never stay in a hotel again.
