Five Star Luxury at Budget Prices

By Nigel G. Worrall

Staying in a poor accommodation can turn any good vacation into a nightmare. Many people think they have to spend a lot of money to get great accommodation but that really isn’t the case. More and more people are falling in love with the concept of staying in a vacation homes as the five star luxury at budget prices is simply an unbeatable value. Of course, there are many more benefits of renting a vacation home than just saving money.

The basic difference between a five star hotel/resort and a vacation home:

  1. Size & cost: usually, a hotel room is about 30-40 sqm or 300 to 400 sq ft, and even a very basic 1 bedroom vacation home can be as much as double the size. Naturally, 3 or 4 bedroom vacation homes are even larger and are typically three or four times the size of a basic hotel room.  Overall, a vacation home is simply better value for money as a hotel room usually costs about the same.
  2. Services: vacation homes also include a full sized kitchen and personal dining space and this can save you a small fortune by eating in rather than going out to extravagant restaurants all the time. Many hotels don’t even have a small kitchen in their rooms as their goal is to get you to spend more at their dining facilities.
  3. Facilities: when you have a personal swimming pool attached to your vacation home, then who needs a pool that has to be shared with all guests staying at the hotel and with restricted hours of usage? Most vacation homes also have a yard that allows you to spend a night under the open skies or an activity or games room which can include a pool or fuss ball tables at no extra cost as they are all included in your vacation home price!

Vacation homes provide you with 5 star luxury at budget prices. These homes take you away from group dwelling like hotels or resorts and are independent facilities. You do not have to worry about noisy next room neighbors or service workers disturbing you from time to time. Most vacation homes have book or comic libraries with popular titles and some even have popular DVD titles that you can watch on the big screen TV. While staying at a hotel, you would have to pay supplementary charges for all these extras whereas at a vacation home, these are all covered in the overall cost you pay.

Another great feature of a vacation home is that you can even host a private party with all expenses under control and no hidden costs involved.  If you compare the cost of lodging a similar number of people in a hotel against housing them in a vacation home, you will find that the vacation home wins hands down.

Finally, another great money saver is the fact there is “no tipping” at a vacation home rental. Essentially there is no staff expense with bell men or waiters to tip. That doesn’t mean that service is neglected however as most vacation rental homes have such services such as cleaning, cooking or even a driver or concierge available to you.

If you are looking for 5 star luxury at budget prices then a vacation home rental, as you can see above, is the only way to go.
