Choosing the perfect place to stay when you are on vacation or even a business trip is a difficult decision. You want a location that is convenient, affordable and has excellent amenities. You may be in the habit of checking out one of the major travel discount sites to pick out a hotel room for your stay. While that can be an OKAY decision sometimes, there are other options too--such as renting a house, cabin or condo from a website like VRBO (vacation rental by owner). If you haven’t given house rentals a serious thought, we’d like to show you a few reasons why it might be a suitable choice for you.
- When you choose to stay in a VRBO instead of the hotel, you will have access to amenities such as a full kitchen, bathroom, and living room space. You may even be able to entertain your friends and family. There is only so much that can fit in even a large hotel room, a rental home means more space and more things to improve your comfort.
- Another benefit to choosing a home rental is the cost. You may think that staying in a whole home or condo would be more expensive than a hotel, but in many cases that is simply not true. Not only will you save money on things such as meals, but the upfront cost may be less than you think.
- Many house or condo rentals offer you the opportunity to experience things you would never see from just a hotel. You may get the chance to enjoy life on a farm, a warm cabin-like setting, beautiful views or opportunities to explore the community from a local standpoint.
- Staying in a VRBO rental is especially beneficial for those traveling with coworkers, an extended family or with children. You will have space for everyone to spread out and not feel cramped together like you would in a hotel room. It is also nice for those who stay up late or get up early, so you can enjoy the rest of the property without waking those who are asleep.
