Get cooking in ScottsdaleWhen you’re planning a vacation, there are a lot of factors to consider.  Where will you stay?  How will you get there?  What will you do?  How much will it cost?  It can get stressful.  Renting a vacation home is an option a lot of people overlook but it’s a fantastic option for many reasons.  Here are 10 reasons why vacation homes are better than hotels:

1.  The Price: Renting an entire house can often cost the same as a one or two person hotel room!

2. Take Your Friends and Family: You can bring your kids, your in laws, and even your friends for no additional cost with plenty of room for everyone.

3. They’re Larger:  If your vacation is for relaxation, wouldn’t you rather have room to breathe in?

4. Cook for Yourself: Vacation homes have full kitchens and maybe even a grill.  Eat what you want to eat and save some money!

5. Have Your Own Party: Hotel parties are cramped and frowned upon.  Have dinner and drinks at your vacation rental!

6. The Decor: Many vacation homes are decorated for a homey feel.  Vacation homes are far less likely to feature that tacky hotel hallway carpet.

7. Princess Parking: Generally there are no additional parking fees and you can park right in front!  No more circling around the hotel.

8. Pet Friendly Factor: Vacation rentals are a lot more likely to allow pets and there’s usually a yard for them to play in.

9. You Won’t Feel Like a Tourist: If you want the whole camera around your neck, fanny pack around your waist experience, go for the hotel.  If you want the local experience, choose a vacation home.

10. Westbrook Vacation Rentals: This is a shameless plug but Westbrook Vacation Rentals offers affordable, spacious vacation homes in great locations.

Whether you’re planning a trip to the beach or to Phoenix, check out vacation rentals.  They’re a much better deal than hotels.
