Pros and Cons of Vacation Rentals
When it comes to your next vacation, where are you wanting to go?

When it comes to your next vacation, where are you wanting to go?  Where are you planning to stay – a large resort, a secluded hotel, a private rental?  Well, when it comes to vacationing, there are many different ways that you can find the perfect place for you to stay in.  When you are considering all of your options, you want to make sure that you look into vacation rentals.  Of course, there are pros and cons to vacation rentals, and here are some that you want to consider while you search:

1.    In most popular vacation areas, hotels usually enjoy a wide spread brand recognition, online reservation processes, and on-site staff for problems.  Vacation rentals usually mean that you step out of this norm and may even have to repair problems on your own.  But, you will be able to communicate with the owner personally, so you will have a better advantage to fix problems, have any repairs done, and have a better understanding of what you are getting with your rental.

2.    Some vacation rentals are managed by rental agencies who will offer you the same types of services that hotels and resorts do – such as 24 hour maintenance, housekeeping, concierge services, and even front desk check ins.  This can be a big plus to those who don't want to have to worry about problems or other issues if they arise.  But, with these types of rentals, you do not get the privacy that other owner-managed rentals will offer.

3.    Vacation rentals offer you more space, especially if you are traveling with your family or a larger group of people.  This means that you get several bedrooms, a kitchen, living area, and more in a vacation rental where you will only get a couple of rooms with a suite at a hotel or resort.

4.    Vacation rentals usually offer you more amenities than a resort or hotel will, such as: private hot tubs, fireplaces, fully stocked kitchens, sports equipment, and more.  Hotels might offer one or two of these things, but they won't be able to offer you the wide variety of amenities that private vacation rentals can.

5.    Vacation rentals can get pricey though.  There are some rentals that are on private islands that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars a week.  But, there are those rentals that are priced cheaper than hotels or resorts for a week and will still offer you more than you get at one of the overpriced hotels in the area.

There are so many pros to finding a vacation rental in the area that you want to vacation in, so you should make sure that you look into rentals before you book a hotel or resort package.
