Over the past few years the use of vacation property rentals have gained popularity. How do you know if renting a vacation home is right for you?

Size Matters: Most hotel rooms are around 400 square feet. Compare to that the average vacation home’s square footage of 2,000 feet. There are times when 400 square feet will suffice, and others when its nice to be able to have some space and room to roam.

Groups: Size goes hand in hand with family or group vacations. When staying at hotels with a group of friends, often times the highlight of the night is being gathered around the table at dinner. There’s laughter and joking, delicious food and good conversation. When the check comes, the jovial night ends as couples or families head back to their own individual hotel rooms and flip on the television. With a vacation home, the festivities can simply transition from restaurant to poolside or to the comfy, spacious living room. Pull out a card game or whip up a quick dessert for all to enjoy.
