5 Reasons Why Vacation Rentals Beat Hotels

You may confront a bit of a dilemma as you start planning your next Myrtle Beach vacation: Should you book a vacation rental property or a hotel? The answer, however, is simple when you consider cost, amenities and the space you can only get from vacation rentals.

To assure you that vacation rentals are the way to go, we’ve assembled five big reasons why it’s smart to choose vacation rentals for your Myrtle Beach getaway.

Reason #1 to book a vacation rental: The cost.

Multi-Family Vacations
Multi-Family Vacations

Booking a private vacation rental home using a property management company means more transparent pricing. You won’t get charged hidden fees depending on the amenities you use, so the price you pay doesn’t budge from the start.

If you’re traveling with a large group, it can get rather expensive to reserve several hotel rooms. By choosing a vacation rental home, you can involve more families, share the expenses and save money you can apply to future vacations!

Meals are the largest expense during a vacation. Having the option to cook your own meals in a vacation rental property relieves a huge burden from your budget. Recruit the whole family to help with dinner and visit Myrtle Beach restaurants only when you want to.

Reason #2 to book a vacation rental: Total flexibility.

Kitchen Area of Ocean Creek MM14

Operating according to tight schedules is a good way to turn your perfect vacation into a drag. If you’re staying in a hotel, you can expect orchestrating your day around room service, the long lines for a mediocre breakfast and inconvenient pool hours.

A vacation home, meanwhile, gives you the freedom to sleep in, treat yourself to hearty meals at any time, and go for a late-night dip in the pool if you’d like. That’s vacation time.

Plus, vacation rentals in Myrtle Beach offer flexible periods of stay, whether you’re in town for a few nights or a few weeks.

Reason #3 to book a vacation rental: More space.

Ocean Creek L2433 - Master Bedroom
Master Bedroom of Ocean Creek L2433

Vacation rental homes typically run about 2,000 square feet, while a hotel room is usually less than one quarter that size. In that small of a space, things can get pretty hectic with family members bickering over the bathroom or keeping everyone’s belongings separate. And who wants to sleep in a room with the person who snores?

At a rental property, family and friends can spend quality time in shared spaces, then retreat to bedrooms when you need a little breathing room.

Reason #4 to book a vacation rental: Better amenities.

Swim-Up Pool Bar at North Beach Plantation
Swim-Up Pool Bar at North Beach Plantation

These days, travelers want a balance of home-like conveniences with perks they can only get on vacation. These include:

• Fast (free) Wi-Fi connections
• Big kitchens
• Swimming pools, pool tables and hot tubs
• Free parking

You’re far more likely to find these amenities in vacation rentals.

Washing machines, coffee makers and driveways not only make life easier—they boost your comfort level. While these come as part of the package with most vacation rental properties, hotels tack on hidden fees for even the smallest conveniences like Internet access and movies. Find the perfect rental property with all your must-haves rather than settling for an impersonal hotel room for your family vacation.

Reason #5 to book a vacation rental: Tranquility.

Unique Circular Living Room of Marina Inn 5101
Living Room of Marina Inn 5101

Frequent guests of rental homes in Myrtle Beach relish the peace and privacy afforded by a place of their very own. It’s nice to enjoy a refreshing night’s sleep without loud guests coming and going down the hall in a busy hotel.

Are you in the market for a relaxing retreat? Or perhaps a fun-filled week of activities for the whole family? Enjoy both when you book a rental property. It’s the perfect choice no matter how you define vacation.

Vantage is ready to assist you in choosing the perfect Myrtle Beach rental for you and your family. Contact a reservationist at (888) 404-3110 or book direct at www.VantageMB.com.

Post-Tax Time Oceanfront Vacations

Taxes Done? Trade Your 1040 for SPF 40

Here’s an idea even your accountant would approve of: trade your primary residence for a sandcastle, and put the stress of tax time behind you with an oceanfront vacation.

Nothing is more relaxing than ocean waves and salt air, and we have great oceanfront properties that are a perfect way to reward yourself for getting your taxes done. (And if you’ve already received your refund, this is a great way to treat yourself.)

Bring that special someone, or invite all of your little deductions to come along. You’ll find a wide variety of vacation choices throughout Myrtle Beach, and we promise you won’t have to fill out any forms.

So put down that calculator, pick up your beach toys and reward yourself for a job well done. To deduct your tax-time stress, book online or speak with a Vacation Coordinator at (888) 404-3110.
