Vacations during a Pandemic: Why you should book a vacation rental for your next holiday

Planning a vacation sure is different these days. As a traveler, we have to decide if we are able to travel, willing to travel and how we can help to minimize the spread of this coronavirus to others.

There is safe ways to still travel and have a holiday. Vacation rentals are just the thing.

Stretch out in style

Instead of navigating a crowded lobby or a busy elevator at a hotel, rent a whole house for a week. On average, a vacation home offers more than 1,300 square feet in which to stretch out, unwind and enjoy.

Stay local

Instead of getting on a plane to a far off destination, consider booking a vacation home in a nearby resort or neighborhood. Sometimes just a change of scenery is all it takes to have a wonderful holiday.

Keep your travel group small

Bring the family or select group of friends you see often but never seem to get enough time with. A vacation home offers a time to reconnect in a new locale away from the everyday distractions.

Bring some hand sanitizer

Stepping into a sparkling clean new home can reinvigorate the senses and re-energize our well being. Have some hand sanitizer on hand to clean your hands before entering a clean vacation home space.

All the comforts of home

Vacation homes are just that: Homes. They usually include all the things you’d expect to find at home. Full-sized appliances. Dishes. Books and games. Laundry. These kinds of amenities can make your stay so much more comfortable!

For people who like having their own space, hotel rooms are only slightly more inviting than the baggage claim area at a major airport. Maids coming and going, thin walls, elevator and HVAC noise, crowded pools…. Those irritants just don’t apply in most vacation homes.

A truly unique getaway

There’s lots of competition for your holiday dollars and many of the people who own vacation homes pull out all the stops to entice you. It’s not unusual to find homes that feature the latest game console, big screen televisions with hundreds of channels, gourmet kitchens, luxury linens, vouchers for local attractions, or unique home decor. Not one vacation rental is quite the same.
