									      A comparison of accommodation for your vacation

It is worthwhile to study and compare the merits and demerits of various holiday
accommodations to make the right choice before going on your vacation. When
planning a vacation, most people straightaway think of checking into a hotel with
their families.

With so many attractive combo (airplane + hotel + car rental) packages out there,
it is but understandable that you easily pick one of them without bothering to
study the alternatives.




But today there are other lodging options - equally attractive or even more
attractive - that should merit your consideration. Vacation rentals, for instance,
offer several amenities and comforts that the majority of hotels may not provide.
A vacation rental is a fully furnished property, such as a holiday cottage,
condominium, town home or single-family-style home, often referred to as villa
rentals.

First of all, vacation rentals provide you with full-fledged kitchens, living room
and multiple bedrooms. You can find condominiums or houses or apartments or
detached holiday homes where you can enjoy total privacy.

Most vacation villas will provide you with air conditioners, fire place, flat
televisions, DVD, heaters, and even computers with Internet connection.
Vacation rentals will be well-furnished and instead of sitting on beds to watch TV
or sharing the two chairs at a small table, you will have adequate furniture in your
living and dining areas.
You can find vacation rentals in the middle of the city with easy access to
shopping centers, restaurants, transportation etc. You can also find vacation
rentals in peripheral areas that will ensure peace and quiet.

If your family is large or you are traveling as part of a large group, you may be
compelled to avail multiple rooms in a hotel and that can be costly and it will also
mean a lot of coordination problems. It has to be stated that with hotels, you
invariably get the same stereotype ambience no matter which part of the world
you plan to go for vacation.

If you and your family members are keen to stay at a place that embraces the
culture of the local area, a vacation should be the obvious choice. Vacation rental
is a home away from home and living together under one roof will be an
opportunity for greater bonding. The vacation homes will be a lot more pleasant
and cozier than the starkness of most hotel rooms.

But it has to be admitted that there are a few downsides to vacation rentals. First
of all, finding the right vacation home can involve a bit of internet research
whereas hotel accommodation can simply be booked through a web site that
offers travel package deals.

Again, because vacation rentals are privately owned properties, the service can be
at times sub-standard and faulty. Remember that not all vacation rental owners
run web sites, and it may take time for the proprietors to respond unless they
have tied up with a management company.

Most vacation rentals are far too spacious and if your family is small, you will
develop a feeling of loneliness. Further the premises will be clean when you arrive
but can not expect someone to come in and change your sheets every day.

As you can see, there are merits and demerits for both hotels as well as vacation
rentals. Make sure that you weigh the pros and cons of both options before
deciding finally where you wish to stay during your vacation.
