Today, we, as travelers, have a lot of options to consider. Where to go, how to get there, where to stay, what to take, how to plan, where to find offers … You already understood. Well, this article is to present you with options on where to stay besides a hotel.
Hotels are a great option. They may be just what you need for your trip, especially if they are only two of you. You can opt for large chains that are well trusted or small chains that may require some digging to ensure you get a nice, clean and affordable hotel room with everything you need. However, if you are traveling with several people or as a family, a hotel room may be small, without privacy and expensive when upgrading to suites and adding additional amenities (such as a kitchen).
However, hotels are great because it is easy to find many good deals with all the viable travel sites that exist.
But, you have other options …
** How about a condo? The condos are great, and in some destinations the main option. The condos can be small or large. They offer additional space, additional services, privileged locations and at prices comparable to hotel rooms.
For example, we stayed in a quaint (small) condominium in Miami. We rent it for only $ 400 per week. It was perfect for my wife and me. The beds fell off the wall, we had a very clean room, private entrance to the place and beaches, quiet area, 2 swimming pools, a kitchen with equipment, a nice bathroom, cable, and a beautiful view of the Atlantic. It was our "love cabin" during the week and much cheaper for almost $ 200 than any other hotel in the area.
** Rent a house. These are now great with the way real estate is today. If you travel with a large group, this may be your best option. Get everything you need or live as luxury in a beachfront home for your vacation.
Once, 18 members of our family went to Florida and had to rent a house. It was not in the ocean, but in a bay. It was perfect. It had 3 levels, a hot tub, pool, 4-5 rooms, lots of space, amenities and lots of fun. We had a great time together since everyone lives in different parts of the country. It was very affordable once divided into 4 ways too.
** Resorts and all inclusive. This is an excellent option for families or if you don't want to worry about looking in your pocket. All inclusive seems to be declining in the United States, but you can find it abroad and it is usually the best option. The resorts are ideal for those who want to spend quality time together, have lots of privacy and space, and enjoy various activities such as golf, fishing, activities for children, spas, etc.
** Shared time. These are growing tremendously in the traveling world. Timeshares are great if you use them. You pay a fee in advance and once a year to use a timeshare. There are several types, so you will want to do your research. Buying a timeshare is similar to buying a house where you don't want to make the decision lightly.
My wife's parents have one and they love him. They can go where they want as long as they stay in the designated places. We use yours for our honeymoon in Palm Beach, Florida. It was first class all the way.
If you and your family travel at least once a year, consider looking for a timeshare.
** Camping and RV parks. With the way in which camps and RV parks are set up today, the term "difficult" does not exactly come to mind. You can get almost everything at a camp that you would have received at a hotel. They are cheap, they live in the wild for a week and have a great time. There are some things to keep in mind if you are a newbie at the camp, so you will want to do some homework before deciding on this as an option.
** Flouting houses. Live in the water for your trip. This is another option to choose from. My aunt has lived in a houseboat in Florida for years and she loves it. This is something that many do not even think about, but when you look at it, you may not stay on land again for future trips.
We hope this article has helped shed some light on where you could stay on your vacation. Villas, cabins and other type options should be considered for specific destinations and vacations.
Most importantly, have fun, find great deals and enjoy your trip!
