Our Pit Stops for Kids staff often recommends vacation rentals for family travel, so when the folks at VacationRoost approached us about partnering with them for some expert vacation planning tips this summer, it was, as they say, a ‘no brainer’.
Why we recommend vacation rentals:
Hotels and resorts are certainly fun for families and have their place in the vacation experience. We certainly review a lot of them! However, for families planning to stay in one region for a week or more, or families traveling with a large group (perhaps for multigenerational travel), a vacation home saves money and is often more practical. Family members can spread out, often have their own rooms, and not share bathrooms. Vacation rentals sport full kitchens without the price tag of a large hotel suite, and many come with laundry rooms, yards to play in, and driveways for free parking. In short, vacation rentals are homes away from home, taking some of the travel stress out of vacation.
Why we love VacationRoost:
There are numerous vacation rental companies out there, and we’ve worked with many of them with great results. Why VacationRoost? They’re in almost 100 areas across the US, Canada, Mexico, and Caribbean (not to mention a smattering in South America). Families don’t even have to know where they’re going before searching for a VacationRoost home: just narrow it down to a beach vacation or ski vacation, for instance, then let inspiration guide you within the pages of VacationRoost. Or, if you know exactly where you’re headed, no need to waste time: the database can take you to a precise location with the map feature. VacationRoost has competitive pricing, allowing families to stay in hotel suites or condos they may have though out of reach…so don’t be afraid to keep all doors open while travel planning!
