Pros & cons of renting a vacation home

Going on vacations can be expensive, with travel expenses, entrance fees to amenities and hotel bookings. Vacation home rentals offer a budget-friendly alternative to hotels. Aside from the money you could potentially save, some vacation homes may also provide a different accommodation experience. Here are some of the pros and cons of renting a vacation home...

For those who hardly stay at their chosen accommodation during vacations, opting for the less expensive vacation home rental may be more practical.

Cutting down expenses

Renting a vacation home is generally less expensive than booking hotel accommodation. For those who hardly stay at their chosen accommodation during vacations, opting for the less expensive vacation home rental may be more practical. This way, you can allocate saved accommodation expenses to tours and entrance fees instead. 

Afford more space

The bigger the hotel room, the more expensive the booking rate. When it comes to vacation home rentals however, they typically have a flat-rate fee for the entire house. Choosing a vacation home rental can afford you more space, which may work particularly well with large groups and families. 

Access to amenities

Hotel and vacation home amenities differ greatly. Most hotels have air-conditioned gyms, indoor pools and other facilities, which all come at a steep price. On the other hand, not all vacation homes have these features. So if you’re particular about amenities, booking hotel accommodation may be the way to go. 

Room service

Hotels provide guests with the utmost comfort and luxury by offering housekeeping staff and room service. While some vacation home rentals have a caretaker onsite, the level of service falls short compared to that of hotels. If having room service is important then renting a vacation home may not be for you.
