There are many reasons vacation home rentals beat hotels hands-down – not only are they usually more affordable for what you get, they offer countless benefits that hotels just can’t match. Once you stay in a rental home or chalet and experience a world of wonder you never knew existed, you’ll likely never want to stay in a hotel again.

Why Choose a Vacation Rental Over a Hotel?

Cost and private space. Two of the biggest reasons to choose a vacation home rental over a hotel on your next getaway include cost and space. Hotels tend to charge a per night/per guest rate, which can get very expensive if you’re planning to stay for a week or more. And, unless you spring for a suite, one room can quickly become cramped with more than two people. If you have kids or a pet – what then? Eating out every meal and paying for activities and/or entertainment can also be added costs when staying in a hotel.

Vacation rental homes and properties offer plenty of indoor and outdoor private living space so the whole family or group can relax and dine together easily. Most vacation rentals are outfitted with every convenience of home minus the responsibilities! Full kitchens for easy, dine-in meals are the norm and they tend to be kid and pet-friendly.

Many vacation rentals are stocked with games, books, and activities, and updated with top-of-the-line TVs and technology – depending on the type of vacation you’re going for (unplugged or plugged-in). And, one big benefit in a long line of many is the time-and-space-freedom that having your own place can bring – no specific breakfast or dining hours, no pool or gym hours – your schedule is your own.
