With the rise of vacation rental homes, it’s easier than ever to enjoy all the comforts of home on your next getaway. From a fully-stocked kitchen to enough room for everyone in the family (including the four-legged members), renting a home is both economical and convenient.

Check out these five reasons why you should rent an apartment instead of a hotel for your next vacation.

1. Vacation Home Rentals Are All-Inclusive


When you stay in a vacation home rental, everything is included in one clear price. You won’t pay extra for necessities like WiFi, on-site parking, or pool access when you book your getaway with PC Housing.

Vacation rental homes from PC Housing are fully furnished and include all of the comforts of home. Each property includes linens, dishes, electronics, cable, Internet, and phone service.

A few optional services, like housekeeping or a pet-friendly rental, do cost a little extra. However, everything is added together when you book your room, not when you arrive. No hidden surcharges means you are free to enjoy your vacation without worrying about the budget.

2. Hit The Road With Your Family

If you’re traveling with your family or a group of friends, booking a vacation rental can be more cost-effective and convenient than staying in a hotel.

Renting a vacation home with multiple bedrooms is cheaper than booking many hotel rooms, and with fewer people to a room, everyone gets a bit more privacy. Common areas of an apartment make socializing easier than in hotels where two rooms could easily be on opposite sides of the property.

A fully-stocked kitchen also means you can cook meals at your home away from home. Save money on restaurant tabs by making a run to the local grocery store.

Many apartments, including those offered by PC Housing, also include a private patio or balcony so you can enjoy the great outdoors.

3. Celebrate Your Independence


When you stay in vacation home rentals, you can enjoy your getaway on your terms. Don’t worry about getting dressed and making it to the lobby between 7 and 9 a.m. to get breakfast. If you love to start the day cooking bacon and eggs in your pajamas at 10, go for it!

Housekeeping won’t interrupt your morning, and laundry facilities are inside your home away from home for your convenience. PC Housing also offers anytime check-in, so you can settle in as soon as you arrive.

4. Bring Your Furry Friends

If you’re traveling with pets, hotels can be a burden. Even if you stay in a pet-friendly place, the design of hotels can make it hard to take care of Fido’s needs.

A vacation rental offers all the comforts of home for you and your pets. If you leave your dog behind for a few hours while you explore, you don’t have to worry about whether his barks are disturbing the neighbors.

Walking your dog is also easier when you stay in a home rental. Because the properties are located in neighborhoods instead of next to busy freeways, there’s plenty of room for both of you to get some exercise.

5. Experience The City Like A Local


Many hotels are located next to busy freeways, or in bustling commercial areas. Vacation rental homes are often located in neighborhoods where people live, work, and play.

You’ll be able to experience your getaway from the same perspective of someone who lives there. Explore the neighborhood and experience all of the unique charms that make the city so alluring. Grab a cup of coffee at the corner cafe and shop at a local boutique before catching dinner at the mom-and-pop joint down the street.
