Why Choose a Vacation Rental

Vacation rentals are becoming one of the fastest-growing hospitality choices in North America, often costing less than other lodging options.

A vacation rental home offers a great value for groups of friends or families, providing considerably more space, personal amenities and privacy. Most vacation homes have a fully equipped kitchen which can save you a lot of money by cooking your own meals as opposed to dining out.

Many vacation rental homes are located on quiet residential streets with great outdoor spaces such as porches, patios, lawns and gardens where you can relax and enjoy yourself. Sure beats sharing a crowded hotel pool with a bunch of strangers.

Sharing a house lets you strike a compromise between togetherness and privacy; you can enjoy family meals together in the communal kitchen, but you’ll also have enough space for everyone to come and go as they please. Parents will appreciate not having to get the kids dressed to go down to breakfast in a hotel restaurant — in your own kitchen, PJ’s are perfectly acceptable!”
