Why a Five Star Vacation Rental Is Better Than a Hotel

Every once in a while we like to take a moment to recap some of the differences you’ll enjoy with you book your next vacation or getaway and why a Five Star Vacation Rental is better than a hotel.

Hotels can be be fun, but they really can’t compete with the value you’ll get with a Five Star Vacation Rentals luxury cabin, estate, or condo. Here are just a handful of differences:

The finest hotels often bill themselves as offering all the comforts of home. We claim that specific advantage in a far more literally way. With us, you’re actually getting an entire home, estate, cabin, or condo during your stay. That means you’ll have your own kitchen, living room, bedrooms, personal hot tub, and everything else that comes with staying in an actual home. But the advantages go far beyond that as well.

Why is it everytime we travel and stay at a hotel, we end up on the floor filled with those in need of Loud Talkers Anonymous?  We understand that many people are out having fun during their hotel stays, and it’s common to return to the hotel excited and chatting loudly about the day. We don’t understand why they do it at 3am.  And though we never recall specifically requesting it, we alway seem to get the room immediately adjacent to the elevator, ice machine or vending machines. Once in a while we actually score the Trifecta and get a room adjacent to all three. We don’t care what Millennials say. Sleep is NOT overrated.

But beyond the shared walls and hallways, hotels lack many of the conveniences that can make a big difference during your stay. “Where did we park the car?” is a question no Five Star guest ever asked. It’s in the driveway, or the garage, not hidden among hundreds of other cars in the hotel parking lot. You’ll remember this advantage when you forget your glasses in the car.

Want a glass of ice water and a snack in the middle of the night? Just pull on your slippers and pad your way over to the kitchen. And many of our cabins will have you enjoying your own personal fireplace, hot tub, and a deck with a great view. You just can’t match it with any other option.

Differences Between a Hotel and a Vacation Rental

If you’re planning on spending your vacation in a hotel, you’re missing out. Hotels offer convenience, safety, and clean accommodations, but so do vacation homes, along with plenty of other benefits! If you’ve been putting off a vacation for fear of the hassle or planning it involves, you can rest easy. Renting a vacation home can take the stress out of vacation planning and offer a fun, economical getaway. There are a million and one reasons to stay at a vacation rental instead of a hotel, but we’ll give you the top four:

1. Avoid loud surroundings and disruptions. Hotels are notorious for unexpected disruptions, loud hallways, crowdedness…we could go on and on. Is this any way to spend your vacation? Of course not. You can sidestep paper thin walls and enjoy a home-away-from-home all to yourself and your family by booking a vacation rental. Instead of noisy neighbors, you can enjoy the beautiful surroundings of nature.

2. Maintain privacy. Along with those aforementioned noisy neighbors, you’ll enjoy a lack of privacy at nearly any hotel you might stay in. Not so at a vacation rental. With the place all to yourself, you can revel in the retreat your vacation should provide. A vacation rental will let you enjoy a getaway to its fullest extent.

3. Save time and money. Hotels often come with a host of fees and tacked-on expenses, and they offer subpar value in many cases. Renting a vacation home, on the other hand, provides maximum value. You can save time, too, by arriving at your accommodation and settling in—don’t worry about valet, check-in, or any of the other obligations you’d encounter at a hotel.

4. Get a full vacation experience. When you’re on vacation, you want to escape from the stress of everyday life. Maybe you’re with friends or family, and you want them to have a good time, too. A luxury rental means you can finish off a day of activities and exploration with true relaxation. Instead of just a place to sleep, it’s a haven to retreat to.
