The beauty of the vacation rental experience is that there is a home appropriate for every occasion. Out of the millions of houses available for rent, each home (all unique in character, size, and location) encompasses the necessities needed to transform a standard accommodation experience into an ideal getaway for all to enjoy. Check out these ideas for group getaways below and begin planning your next trip:

  • Commemorate special events in the comforts of home.
    Celebrate monumental birthday, anniversaries, or accomplishments with friends and family. With access to your own kitchen and with sleeping space for everyone, a vacation rental is an obvious choice. Simply select a home that caters to your celebratory needs and enjoy!
  • Attend popular festivals and sporting events without paying inflated hotel rates.
    Get tickets to the Super Bowl, a World Cup soccer play-off game, or to an event at the Olympics without having to worry about breaking the bank. Staying in a rental property allows you to save money by cooking dinner at home, and sharing your accommodtions with the whole group can help offset the cost of expensive tickets. Now you can put the extra cash saved towards premiere seating.
  • Reunite the family in a place that everyone will enjoy.
    Staying in a home with multiple amenities and additional space makes it easier than ever to cater to each family member’s needs. Now Uncle Joey can play golf in the morning, Aunt Karen can relax poolside, the kids can enjoy the beach volleyball court, and Grandpa Joe can barbeque some of his famous teriyaki wings – all at the same time!
  • Enjoy an elegant wedding weekend with friends and family.
    Imagine a wedding ceremony in a luxurious country cabin, in a vibrant garden, or in front of a classic stone fireplace with snow-tipped mountains. Design the wedding of your dreams without the hassle of hiring a limo to transport the newlyweds and the bridal party to the reception.
  • Take advantage of seasonal events.
    Round up your college friends and catch a football game over alumni weekend, get a group together in Napa Valley, California to partake in a winery tour, or visit New England during the Fall to take in the foliage and go apple picking with the extended family. When planning a getaway with friends and family, the space and amenities of a vacation rental home can easily accommodate the group, no matter where you decide to adventure.

When vacationing with a group, the space, amenities, and privacy of a home guarantee a more pleasant stay every time you travel. Not only will you likely pay less and get more, but the diversity of each home available to rent will also allow you to cater to the needs of the group – whether you are attending a wedding, planning a family reunion, or escaping with your best friends on a well-deserved weekend away.
