The benefits of a vacation rental
The obvious benefit is space. Instead of one often tiny room, you can have access to an entire condo or house. If you are travelling with children the benefit becomes immediately apparent. When the little ones are asleep, you and your partner can stay up and watch TV in another room or enjoy a glass of wine and a snack on the patio. And early risers can enjoy their morning coffee, or cartoons, without disturbing the rest of the family. A vacation rental can also save you considerable money on food if you are willing to do a little grocery shopping and have breakfast and the occasional dinner at “home”.
The downside of a vacation rental
While the space can be appealing, vacation rentals are like having your own home. They rarely come with daily maid service so when you return from a full day of sightseeing, you will find your rental in the exact same condition you left it. If you are the type of person who likes beds to be made and bathrooms to be cleaned daily, then a vacation rental may not be the best choice for you.
How to find a vacation rental
Some travel agencies, like Valhalla Travel in Stouffville, can help arrange for vacation rentals. “We can help our clients find every kind of accommodation from luxury villas in the Caribbean to rustic cottages in Denmark,” says Jon Sondrup of Valhalla Travel in Keswick. “This can be a particularly cost effective way to enjoy your vacation particularly if you are travelling in a group and would enjoy a villa that has eight bedrooms or more!”
