Vacation homes are great for big groups of family or friends who want to share space and memories. Favorite dishes or fresh, local seafood can be cooked in the kitchen for the days you want to stay in for a meal. An in-house washer and dryer means keeping the beach wardrobe clean and fresh. It’s also a chance to treat yourself. Why not? You’re on vacation.
For those who need space, note that the average hotel room is 325 square feet. Vacation homes are often much larger so everyone — including the family dog in pet-friendly homes — can enjoy each other’s company throughout the spacious property.
Plus, there’s more privacy when you rent a vacation home. Kids can have separate bedrooms, and mom and dad will have a master suite to escape to. Some homes also have all the bells and whistles, from pools to hot tubs, creating a self-care retreat just for you.
