Vacation Rentals offer tremendous advantages when compared to Standard Hotel Rooms. Privately owned vacation rental properties offer more room, flexibility, amenities, freedom and privacy than a standard hotel room often for less money.
For example: A Disney area Luxury 3 bedroom, 2 bath villa home with a private pool, gourmet kitchen, dining room, living room, laundry room and community amenities can be rented for as little as $600/week. With a vacation rental property you can prepare meals and snacks anytime, enjoy swimming or lounging by your private pool, unpack your bags and have room to spread out. As the number of travelers in your group increases, the savings continue to grow and grow!
Vacation rentals offer more room. Most Standard hotel rooms offer a king bed, or two queen beds at best along with a dresser, small closet and bath. There is usually one TV which can be viewed by sitting or lying on the bed or using one of two small chairs provided in the room. These rooms become quite cluttered when a family of 4 staying for a week struggles to keep unworn clothes neat and dirty clothes separated. Usually the television becomes a war zone with small children battling over channels. Adults often can’t even enjoy any late night program for fear of waking the children.
Vacation Rentals offer incredible room to spread out and relax. On Paradise Properties by Owner you will find properties with 1 bedroom all the way up to estates that have over 15 bedrooms! Yes, you read that correctly! Along with comfortable sleeping & closet space, vacation rentals also have fully equipped kitchens and living areas. Many homes also have dens, formal dining rooms, private pools and hot tubs, game rooms, laundry rooms, lanais, large yards and more. The average size of a hotel room us about 300 square feet. Vacation Rentals range from 1200 square feet to over 10,000 square feet of living space in come cases. Vacation rentals offer much more value for your money.
Vacation rentals offer freedom and flexibility. Want a late night snack in a Hotel room? This is not always an easy thing to do! If there is room service and the restaurant is still open you shouldn’t have any trouble. Want to go for a late swim after dinner? How about an early morning dip in the pool? Be sure to check the hotel pool hours. You might not have the option. Need to take your car? Some resorts valet and this becomes a lengthy ordeal especially if you just want a snack.
Vacation rentals allow you the flexibility to plan your day the way you want. Eat when you are hungry, swim when you feel like taking a dip, or simply relax without feeling that you are interrupting the rest of your family’s plans. Often times the expenses of eating out can far exceed the daily expenses of lodging on a vacation. With full kitchens, these expenses are greatly reduced in a vacation rental even if you only use the kitchen for breakfasts, drinks and snacks!
Many vacation rentals offer more amenities than a standard hotel room. You will usually find TVs, VCRs, DVDs, & Stereos. Fully equipped kitchens, large spacious baths, and laundry rooms are found in most vacation rentals. Many also offer private pools, game rooms, spas, tennis facilities and much more! You can also find homes and condos with great outdoor living spaces such as patios, lanais, gardens, lawns and private decks overlooking incredible vistas. Many vacation rentals are located on golf courses, lakes, mountains, and beaches.
There are some things that can’t be compromised. A sense of privacy is one of the main reasons Vacation Rentals are so popular. In a hotel you will hear the comings and goings of those around you. Often times even in the best of resorts, it is difficult to escape the sounds of water pipes and shutting doors. Vacation Rentals provide your own sanctuary away from crowds. You might choose to take a moonlit swim in the pool, or enjoy the sunrise while you lounge with a cup of coffee. In a standard hotel room the concept of privacy is never the same feeling as a privately owned vacation rental property.
Vacation rentals can save money. There is no comparison between the two. The old saying applies “it’s like trying to compare apples to oranges”. Vacation Rentals often offer more room for less money, more freedom, more flexibility, more amenities, and much more privacy for your money. When you rent a vacation rental directly from the owner you will also find an attention to detail and comfort that many rental management companies overlook. Owners who rent their properties “by owner” want you to return year after year to enjoy their property. Your satisfaction is extremely important to vacation rental property owners.
