What Makes the Perfect Vacation Rental?

Ah, vacations! A time to be free, playful…and frustrated? Frustration obviously isn’t part of an ideal vacation experience. But that doesn’t mean it can’t rear its ugly head. From delayed planes to misplaced luggage to a hotel room with a giant cockroach in the bathtub, vacations can throw us for a loop. 

One way to be proactive is to make sure you book the perfect rental. So, what does this look like? What should you seek out when hoping to chill out?  

Nearby amenities

Sure, it’s always possible that you’re a hermit wanting to keep entirely to yourself. It’s also possible that you’re looking to unplug, unwind, and do absolutely nothing for a week or two. Most people, however, fill their vacations with fun things to do. If this is you, make sure you rent a place with nearby amenities, sights, and attractions. A house 100 miles from civilization won’t do you any favors.

A rental that’s clean

It should go without saying, but let’s say it anyway: a vacation rental must be immaculate. No one wants to live in a home with dirty socks on the floor and dishes in the sink. If you find a note asking you to put the wash in the dryer once the rinse cycle finishes, you’re probably not going to leave a stellar review. 

A rental with clear and detailed instructions

With the advancement of technology, things like turning on a TV aren’t as easy as they used to be. It’s not just about hitting the power button; it’s about apps and inputs and passwords galore. Everything in a vacation rental should be easy to use and easy to find. 

A place that’s affordable

No one wants to spend thousands of dollars on their vacation lodging (okay, maybe Bill Gates wouldn’t mind). Often, vacation rentals are where people spend the least amount of their time, making affordability highly important. Sometimes, a hotel is your best option. Sometimes it’s a condo. Hotels.com allows you to search a variety of places and find one that fits best with your budget. 

An easy booking experience

In the era of two-day shipping and meeting future spouses on the internet, we’ve grown accustomed to convenience; we just don’t want it, we demand it. This doesn’t change when we’re booking vacation rentals – if the booking experience isn’t easy, we’re not interested. Turnkey Vacation Rentals offers this convenience – it offers all sorts of luxury lodging with 24-7 attention literally at your fingertips. The only thing standing between you and the vacation of your dreams? Your credit card number. 

Vacations can be a lot of work (oh the irony), but they’re worth it. Finding the right rental place is the first step in making sure your time away is everything you desire. Rest, relax, and rejuvenate and do it in a rental that is up to your standards.
