What Is A Vacation Home Rental?

Spurred by their popularity among European and British vacationers, vacation home rentals have exploded in the last decade.  Vacation homes offer a unique alternative to paying the ever-rising costs of staying at an all-suite hotel or luxury resort.  Guests renting vacation homes save money by cooking their own, healthful meals, washing their clothes for repeat wear, and enjoying free parking and amenities.  The privacy and comfort help families truly enjoy their time on vacation.

A vacation home is a private home that has been built, furnished, and managed for the purpose of renting to people like you for their vacation. Vacation homes can be condos, townhomes, or private pool homes, and range from a 2 to 3 bedroom condo to a 3 to 7 bedroom house! The Condos and townhomes will have a community pool, and pool homes will have their own private pool and spas too.

Vacation home rentals are fully furnished and equipped with everything you need to enjoy your vacations.  Inside, you will find everything you need including: dishes, pots and pans, flatware, coffee makers, can openers, bake wear, and other kitchen items. Kitchens featyre full sized refrigerators, oven/ranges, dishwashers, and microwave.  Living areas, dens, and bedrooms include TV, game systems, DVD players and VCRs. Linens and towels are provided, and most management companies ensure that vacation properties come with a starter supply of toiletries and paper products (though replenishing these supplies is the responsibility of the renter.

 How Does A Vacation Home Rental Work?

A vacation home can be either a privately owned property managed by a central company, or a property or The vacation home industry is particularly strong near Disney World in Orlando, Florida. However, it pays to check with maps online before finalizing your reservations; vacation homes and condos may be as little as 3 miles from the attractions area, or 30 minutes away!  Be sure to specify what your needs are when making your reservation, and prepare to provide your own transportation.  Vacation homes vary widely in their layout, amenities, and locations, so make sure to consult our list of questions to ask prior to booking (below).

Although vacation home rentals do not offer the same amenities that a hotel or timeshare resort stay would have, there are distinct advantages.  It is often far easier to find availability for large parties during holiday travel, than with a traditional hotel stay.  Guests with medical or dietary needs often find it more convenient to have full kitchens and full-sized bathrooms to help meet their needs.  Rooms are usually more spacious, and many rental home management companies offer "premier" or "5 Star" homes which feature video game systems and game rentals, movie rooms, and in-home game rooms.

Questions To Ask When Booking:

Vacation home rentals, and timeshare condo rentals, operate slightly differently from the typical hotel reservation.  Because these rentals are typically located in large complexes or resort properties, they can sometimes be removed from the main attraction areas that a guest will be visiting.  There may also be additional costs involved, so be sure to ask:

  • Will there be cleaning fees assessed at check-in or check-out?
  • Is maid service available during the stay, and is there a fee?
  • Are shuttles available to area attractions, and will there be a fee?
  • Does the home or condo have a private pool or shared amenities?
  • Will there be a fee assessed for internet access while on the property?
  • What taxes or surcharges may apply to the nightly rate?
  • Will a deposit be held during the stay?
  • Are there charges assessed for local or long-distance calls?
  • Where is the property located in relation to area attractions?
  • If something breaks, who should be called for maintenance issues?

Rates, Specials, Multi-Family and Reunion Booking

In popular vacation areas such as Orlando, Florida and Las Vegas, Nevada, vacation homes are often comparably priced to traditional hotels.  In the Disney World area, retail rental rates begin at about $129.00-$159.00 per night for a two bedroom, two bath condo, up to $399.00 per night for enormous 6 bedroom private pool homes.  In many cases, vacation home rentals are available at a significant discount to guests traveling in large groups, or who agree to attend a 90-minute timeshare tour in a local resort.

When booking for large groups and family reunions, there is a distinct advantage to booking vacation homes vs. traditional hotels. For example, a traditional family reunion group of 10 families might have to book hotels all over town in order to accommodate the number of guests coming.  Even if they are able to book a single hotel, the amenities will be limited, and the cost for renting meeting space would be astronomical!  But the same group can book 5-6 units in a private community (often side-by-side!) for the same price, and enjoy privacy, comfort, and cost-saving amenities such as a community center for pool parties and BBQ's, private bedrooms, full kitchens, game rooms, and more.

Vacation homes and timeshare condos are wonderful alternatives to the traditional hotel experience.  Once you have enjoyed the freedom, privacy, and space of a rental, you may never book a hotel room again!  With vacation home rentals, your vacation will be relaxing and comfortable, with none of the pressures of cramming your family into an inadequate and unsatisfactory hotel room.  Book a vacation home or timeshare condo and save hundreds with a timeshare tour!
