5 Reasons to Rent a Vacation House While Traveling With Friends

You want to escape with your friends. Where do you go to be yourselves and have a true vacation together? As fun as hotels can be, they can’t cater to small groups the way vacation rental homes do. These are five advantages of renting one when traveling with friends.

1- Get the Space You Need

Traveling with friends is more than visiting landmarks and nightclubs together. A rental home gives you space to do things you just can’t do in a hotel. Early risers can enjoy yoga together with a view of the ocean. Board game fans can claim the entire dining room table, and the living room has space for everyone to settle in for movie night. It’s the difference between traveling to the same place and traveling with someone.

2- Enjoy Better Privacy

Even in the best hotel, the closest neighbors are only a wall away. The pool’s ambiance depends on the other guests, and there’s always someone around to see your comings and goings. Even a laid-back resort has standards, and you’re in the public eye whenever you leave your room.

A vacation house is all yours. You can wear your pajamas to dinner because no one else is there to care. Share those embarrassing stories about your college days over breakfast, and sunbathe in peace. You have a place to get away at the end of a day’s adventures and truly unwind.

3- Your Food Your Way

One of the best parts of any vacation rental is the kitchen. Access to a full kitchen also means you eat what you want when you want. Take turns cooking, bring your grandma’s secret lasagna recipe, or hire a private chef. Your schedule is free from the shackles of restaurant hours and the limitations of room service. Every day is a good day for brunch, and any hour of the night suits a steak dinner.

4- Spend More Time Together

In a vacation home, there’s plenty of space when you need a breather, but there’s even more room for time with friends. If you like catching up over drinks, chatting while you cook together, or just spending quiet time in each other’s company, you need communal rooms. A shared kitchen, living room, and patio set the stage for great memories and low-stress bonding.

5- Vacation Your Way

Everyone vacations differently, but vacation rental homes are all about options. Sometimes, a dream vacation looks like a luxury home on a remote beach far from the region’s tourist traps. Yours may look like a brownstone in the middle of town steps away from museums, clubs, and Michelin-starred restaurants. Vacation rentals are as varied and eclectic as your friends. You don’t have to compromise.

A home away from home gives you the power to shape your experience. Stay up trading stories around a fire pit until the sun rises, or settle down on the porch for some stargazing. Have a karaoke party while you make lunch. There’s space for all of you, and all of your quirks, in the right rental.
