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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
