There are so many decisions to make when planning a vacation. Typically, my biggest decision is where we will stay. That can change depending on the type of vacation we are taking.
Is it just me and my husband? Will children be coming along? Is it a large group vacation? Do you tend to stick to one type of lodging for every vacation or do you fluctuate like most people do?
Hotels are attractive because they don’t really typically have the very least rentals time like condo properties and rentals homes, which often need a week-long rental or even more.
Williamsburg, best known for its distinctly hipster vibe, is a neighborhood filled with endless possibilities for amusement.
If you’re vacationing for an extended weekend a hotel might be best for you. Also, with so many online options like Hotels.com, Travelocity and Expedia, you can find an extremely competitive rate depending on your time and effort of travel.
Hotel lodging also gives you to earn compensation things if you are a recurrent traveler and person in a rewards program like Marriott Rewards. Take into account that most hotels give a variety of extra amenities that local rental homes and condo properties can’t, such as laundry services, an inside pool, linens and towels provided, business services, etc. If you want to be waited on throughout your vacation, a hotel might be best for you.
Typically us prefers to getaway in accommodations home. There are a variety of online services you may use to look for and reserve a residence for rent. I really like the overall flexibility to have the ability to do all my looking by myself from home. I really like having the ability to check out pictures and discover the house that best will fit us needs, particularly if we are travelling with other family.
Local rental homes come in every sizes and shapes. They remain different from property booking because they typically provide more space and sometimes an exclusive pool.
Having small kids, I really like having accommodations home to ourselves pitched against a condominium. When we’ve remained in a property I get worried about our nearby neighborhood friends being bothered by the noises of four small kids.
Condos and rental homes offer a bit more flexibility in negotiation especially if you are traveling during the off season. It doesn’t hurt to ask for a better price. With today’s economy, less people are vacationing and there are a lot of empty condos and houses for rent. Owners would rather make some rental income then none at all. So don’t be shy. Make an offer. If that owner turns you down, there are plenty of other condos to turn to.
