6 Reasons to Rent a Beach House Instead of a Hotel


6 Reasons to Rent a Beach House Instead of a Hotel

Let's face it there are a lot of options for vacationers. From hotels to condos and everything in between. However, nothing gives travelers more options than a beach house. When booking a hotel room, guests usually can’t pick the location or receive all the amenities they need. With a beach house guests can plan their ideal getaway by selecting a home that has everything they need in a location that suits their needs and those are just a few of the perks of renting a beach house. This week we have eight great reasons to choose rent an Ocean Isle Beach vacation rental for your 2020 beach vacation. 

Eat better and save money

Eating out can be a huge budget buster for a family. Besides we all know we don't always make the healthiest choices when eating out, especially if you are trying to eat out on the cheap or feed a large family. 

All of our vacation rentals have well-appointed kitchens giving you a place to create home-cooked meals and snacks. Sure, dining out is always fun and recommended in moderation, but you'll always save money and have more options when eating at home. 

All the comforts of home

Vacation homes are just that: homes. They usually include all the amenities and comforts you’d expect to find at home. Full-sized appliances. well-equipped kitchens, books, DVD players, and games. Almost all vacation homes have washers and dryers. Need something specific like a pool? We have lots of options to choose from. These kinds of amenities can make your stay so much more comfortable – especially if you’re traveling with young kids or have a large family. Why stay in a cramped tackily decorated hotel room?

Space, space and even more space

Remember as a kid when you had to share your bedroom with your sibling. From an early age we all understand the value of having more living space. This is never truer than during your beach vacation. Everyone needs a little extra room to kick back, relax and enjoy the art of doing nothing. But, did you know on average, a vacation home gives you more than 1,300 square feet (national average) in which to stretch out, unwind, and enjoy. Compare that to a hotel rooms with a measly average of 325 square feet!

Everyone needs a little privacy

Ever shared a bathroom with two, maybe three other people? What about trying to relax at the pool with dozens of  screaming kids running around. Why fight the crowds? Book a beach house and have your own space and some well-deserved privacy. 

Vacation rentals provide more privacy than hotel rooms. Renting a home can provide guests with their own bedroom, bathrooms and seating areas.  Vacation homes are great for families because parents can put kids to bed, then watch a movie or spend time together, without worrying about disturbing children.

Sure you could book multiple hotel rooms to have more privacy, but that gets very expensive very quickly, with no real added benefits. Why spend thousands on hotel rooms for a week when booking a vacation rental by comparison costs far less? 

More available options

There is simply no comparison to a hotel when you are looking for the perfect vacation home. From sizes to location, beach houses offer the best range of choices on the market. With such a wide array of options your hardest job will be picking which amazing house to book. Our website allows you to search for homes based on size, location, amenities and so much more. 

Don't forget our website is safe and secure so browsing for the perfect home with actual pictures of the properties is the best way to ensure to find exactly what you are looking for. 

Best value for you dollar

Vacation homes are almost always more affordable than hotels. This is especially true when you factor in the cost of eating out three times a day, and a vacation home with a fully-equipped kitchen can be a significantly better value! 

If you have a large family or group the idea of renting two or three hotel rooms can be a daunting expense with little upside advantage when compared to having everyone under the same roof.
