When people think of vacations, they often think of wide, sandy beaches, pristine snowy slopes, or quiet lakefront living, but they inevitably end up in the same place: a cramped, generic hotel room. Why settle during your vacation? If you're traveling with a family or group, or if you're staying longer than three days, consider renting a vacation home. These houses and condominiums can have breathtaking views, prime location, and fabulous amenities. Best of all, they're often less expensive than hotels.
The largest benefit to renting a home is space. Instead of sharing both a bedroom and bathroom with your kids, you can stay in a two-bedroom, two-bath home with doors for privacy and closet space for convenience. You'll never get a living room, dining room, and kitchen in your hotel. Renting a vacation home gives you space to unwind, space to play games, and space to have dinner, all without breaking your holiday budget.
The amenities in a private home are far greater than in a hotel. Vacation rentals are fully equipped homes, and you'll have everything at your fingertips, from televisions to teapots. If you decide to have a dinner party, you'll be able to use the pots and pans, and also the dining room table, the place mats, and the wine opener.
