Planning a holiday can be overwhelming, especially if you have children. One minute, you’re happily scrolling through accommodation options and the next you’re plagued with decision fatigue and on the verge of making a rash holiday booking decision. One of the biggest mistakes vacation goers can make is staying somewhere that isn’t right for their needs. HomeAway, the new home of Stayz, has thousands of rental options available for those looking to stay somewhere that suits the entire family.
Nobody wants to be cramped in a hotel room with their family or group of friends, and with holiday homes so much more accessible online, here are six reasons why you should opt for a holiday rental over a room.
Holidays are for relaxing, either on your own or with your friends and family. The last thing you want is to be confronted by tourists and other holiday-goers all trying to do the same thing. This holiday escape in QLD is not only pet-friendly but has its own access to a beach boardwalk.
More space is an obvious perk, but so worth it. Rather than spending your downtime restricted to a single room, a holiday home offers the space to relax and unwind without feeling cramped.
The great thing about staying in a holiday home is the capacity to sleep a lot of people. The extra rooms mean you can bring family and friends to share your well-earned break (and the cost).
Doggo can come too
Leaving your puppy at home can be stressful for both dog and owner – not to mention expensive if you are leaving Fido in a kennel. With more than 70% of Australians choosing to take their pets with them on holidays, it’s no wonder that more holiday homes are allowing travellers to bring their furry family members along for the ride.
Make your own schedule
Wake up and eat breakfast when you feel like it, instead of being constrained to restaurant opening and closing times. If you feel like a swim in the pool after 10pm – go for it. The holiday home is your oyster.
Home away from home
Staying in a holiday home offers added comforts that many accommodation alternatives can’t, such as a fully-stocked kitchen for nights you want to stay in, cook a delicious dinner and play board games. If you’re lucky, your home away from home might have a pool or table-tennis table. Bringing your own food and beverages will also save you money, leaving you with a bigger budget for activities.
