Whether you’ve rented a vacation home a dozen times, or this will be your first time, there are many advantages – some of which you may not have thought of. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons people choose to rent a home year after year.
Only unpack once
Staying in an Orlando vacation home is truly like staying in a home away from home. You’ll feel more comfortable and settled than you would if you stayed in a hotel. As a result, unpacking will be something you’ll look forward to – not something you’ll avoid the entire time you’re staying there. You can choose the number of bedrooms your home has, so everyone has their own space and can be responsible for their own unpacking.
When you stay in a typical resort hotel, you’ll likely deal with one of the most common problems: not enough storage space. One dresser for a group of four is simply not enough. What many families do is to only unpack what they’ll need for the next few days. Then every night before settling in, they take a look at what’s still packed and have to go through the process all over again. Why not spend that time relaxing in your own rental home?
You can save a ton of money
When most people think about renting a vacation home they don’t think about saving money. In fact, they typically assume that they’ll pay more to stay in their own home. In reality, these homes start at just $99 in the Orlando area. They are almost always more affordable than renting several hotel rooms to accommodate your entire family.
And that’s not the only way they can save you money! They are also equipped with their own kitchens, which means you can go to the grocery store once, stock up on food, and then prepare your own meals. Most families do a few meals at their home and also enjoy some local Orlando restaurants. No matter how you divide the time, any meal you make in your home is going to save you money versus eating every meal out on the town.
You have total control over where you stay
Renting a hotel room may seem to be something that gives you control, but in reality you’re largely at the mercy of the hotel. You could request a first floor room, or a room overlooking the pool – or any number of other special requests – but in the end you may not get what you want. On the other hand, when you rent a vacation home you can pick the exact home you want, with all the amenities you want and in the location that’s perfect for your needs.
