Vacation Home Rentals Compared to Staying at a Hotel

Aug 18, 2007
Many people when traveling stay in hotels and never give a thought to staying in a vacation home, town home, or condo. I used to work in the vacation area near Disney World in Orlando for a Vacation Rental company and have seen nothing but positive feed back to staying in a vacation home instead of a hotel.

Let's way the differences to see if staying in a home instead of a hotel is something you may be interested in next time you travel.

Hotels are great for a one or two night trip were you don't spend a lot of time in your room. You have maid service, room services, and concierge at your fingertips.

The downside to a hotel room is that they are usually small and stuffy. They have little closet space, parking a mile from your room, they are very noisy, and many are smoke filled.

Vacation homes are a great alternative, especially if it's a family vacation were you will stay for at least 4 to 5 days. You can book a 2,3,4, or 5 bedroom house in Orlando with a pool for a starting price of $125 USD a night. The longer you stay the better the rate. All homes come with cable TV in every room, full equipped kitchens; they are fully furnished, and have lots of closet space for your clothes. You save money by eating in. There are usually grocery stores near by that you can stock up on all your necessities.

Imagine feeding a family of 5 for a week. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner, that's 15 meals times 5 people. If you go out it's an average of $10 a meal per person, that's $750 USD. Save the money eat half your meals at home.

It's a nice change to have your own pool to swim in and a private 2 car garage to pull your car into. There's no sharing the internet with the rest of the hotel guest, just your family to share with.

If you compare the cost of a hotel room to a vacation home, you truly get a better deal with the vacation home in most cases.

So next time you plan a trip for more than a few days and have a group of at least four people, look into a vacation home or vacation condo. You will be so glad you did. Pamper your self and book a vacation house.
