Vacation rentals are fully private homes whose owners rent them out on a temporary basis to tourists as an alternative to hotels. They are available in all kinds of destinations, from a rustic cabin in the mountains to a downtown apartment in a major city. They can be townhouses, single-family-style homes, farms, beach houses, or even villas.
Vacation rentals are generally appealing for many reasons. They are, to name some on the top, cost-saving, spacious, great for large groups, separated from crowds, and no tips or service charges. Besides, they have kitchens for cooking, living rooms for gathering, outdoor spaces for parties or barbeques, and they offer the appeal of living like locals in a real community. They are usually equipped with facilities such as sports and beach accessories, games, books and DVD libraries, and in warmer locations, a swimming pool. Many vacation rentals are pet-friendly, so people can take their pets along with them when traveling.
Customers who choose hotels often enjoy the advantages of brand recognition, familiar reservation processes, and on-site service, while booking a vacation rental may mean stepping out of that comfort zone in order to get privacy, peace and quietness they offer -- things that are hard to obtain in a hotel room. For tourists, choosing a vacation rental over a hotel means more than short-term lodging -- vivid experiences and lifelong memories are what they value. 【題組】76.
