Villa Vacations once seemed only possible for the wealthy, but today villa rentals have emerged as value-based travel opportunities for everyone. While statistics show that only 8% of travelers have stayed in a vacation rental, 90% report they are likely to plan this kind of vacation again. In general a group of people traveling together splitting the cost will keep pricing down. In addition to cost savings, villas offer guests more space, home-like comforts, and no tips, taxes or service charges associated with hotel rooms. Private homes and condos have kitchens for cooking, living areas for gathering together and the appeal of being part of the community.
Hotels may enjoy the advantages of brand recognition, familiar reservation processes, and on-site staff. For those booking a vacation rental it may mean stepping out of that comfort zone in order to appreciate the advantages that vacation rentals offer. Perceived cons of vacation rentals may include being unfamiliar with the property, questions about on-site staff, and concerns about quality. These concerns are mitigated by dealing with villa or vacation rental agencies that manage vacation properties for owners who offer many of the same services that hotels offer their guests including check in services, housekeeping, 24-hr. maintenance and concierge services.
The benefits of vacation rentals generally outweigh the negatives by offering more space in multiple bedrooms, bathrooms, and separate living areas; more amenities with fully equipped kitchens, private hot tubs and convenient locations with greater privacy. In many communities the option of vacation rentals provides travelers with the opportunity to become part of a neighborhood.
Vacation rental homes can range from budget studio condos to luxurious, expensive villas in the world’s most desirable locations with all the amenities one would find in any luxury accommodation.
