Reasons For Renting Villas & Vacation Rentals
Do you always wish for more room, or maybe a little privacy from the kids when taking a longer vacation? It is not bad to say you do because we all need it sometimes just to take a break. Well that is one of our biggest reasons for renting places just like the Bali villas for rent.
Before we adopted Desiree my husband and I were fortunate enough to travel to Jamaica, Bahamas, and Mexico more than once. We loved having a separate bedroom because my husband is an early riser and I am the late night person. With a separate bedroom he can have his coffee, watch television, or anything else and not bother each other anytime of the day or night.
The full kitchen is always a big plus. We can make a full meal or just a quick snack at night. When we take the grandkids with us they like to have cereal at night for a snack, this is hard to do in a small hotel room. Normally you eat out a lot during vacation but how many times has your child said I am not hungry at the restaurant, and 5 minutes after you get back to the hotel they say I am starving. You can take the leftovers with you and heat them up.
Everyone has more room to relax and not constantly be with everyone. Desiree likes to read, play on her computer, draw, etc. and she does not want use looking at her all the time. With her own bedroom she has her space to relax the way she wants to without everyone staring at her. She can go to sleep when she wants to without having our television or lights disturbing her.
If you check the prices compared to regular hotels you may be surprised that it actual saves you money. There are lots of ways to save money while on vacations, but this one cost is where you want to make for certain you will all be happy with. The variety and quality of the choices you can rent is important. It really goes back to ‘you get what you pay for’! So if you want to watch your budget do it in other ways than your home for the next week or two. You should feel comfortable and safe. Some of the luxury rentals are well worth the money for all the amenities you will receive plus the security offered in different countries.
Luxury rental units may even included transportation to/from the airport so no need for a rental car. Also a lot of them have at least 1 pool and possible access to the ocean. They may also have restaurants on the premises or within walking distance. Some even include food into the costs so you do not have to pay for much while you are there. Most have basketball courts, tennis courts, playgrounds, and more to keep the kids entertained. One of the villas we rented in Jamaica even had our own personal swimming pool. No need to worry what others think about how you look, just you and your family will see.
You will also save money. Everything can be paid for in advance so you may not have any reason to leave the resort. If you do not plan on leaving then there is no reason to exchange your currency where you might not have any idea how to quickly figure it in your head how much you are really paying. If you use a credit card the money will be exchanged at the current rate for the day the charge is for. Plus it saves you time as it is one less thing you have to do when you get to your rental place, exchanging currency, and you can get to relaxing and enjoying your vacation.
Wouldn’t it be nice to travel with a group of friends? You would have plenty of room for everyone and everyone could put the kids in bed, then enjoy the evening playing games or just chatting. You can shut the kids doors and do not have to worry about what is being said or if you are drinking the kids won’t be aware of any of it. Plus since the kids are all in the same unit no one is left out to watch the kids in a separate unit. This can also save the whole group money by renting a bigger place and splitting the costs.
I can relax more when we have a larger unit. It gives us so much more room while still being able to relax. Eat breakfast on the balcony in your pajamas. My husband has his coffee every morning watching the ocean and any boats nearby. Most bedrooms and living rooms have televisions so no one has to watch the same thing, plus dvd players and possible movies to watch.
If you are going to visit family or friends you have a place to entertain them. Why meet at a restaurant where you have a short time period to visit. Have everyone come over to your place and visit like never before.
Some of the rental units we have been in have a guest book and it is so great to see what country everyone is from that has stayed in the same place as you have. Plus some of the visitors have found some great places to visit, extra good restaurants, and more local places that normally take most of the week, if ever, to find. The units are normally decorated to the theme of where you are visiting. It can be interesting to see how others decorate and possible borrow some ideas for your own home.
As you can see there are lots of reasons to rent a villa or similar on your next vacation. There are so many more but I have to go for now.
