COVID-19 VACATION HOME RENTAL VS. HOTEL ROOM
As travel restrictions are lifted, we realize potential and confirmed upcoming guests still have a great deal of uncertainty about choosing the safest accommodations. There has been so much out of our control this year. In these unpredictable times the question of which is safest between a vacation rental or a hotel room is a hot topic of conversation.
One of the most appealing things about staying in a private vacation rental, pandemic or not, is you and your guests come in contact with no one. By staying in a vacation rental where you have control over the everyday cleanliness of your space, how you prepare your meals, and who you come into contact with offers piece of mind that’s hard to find in any other area of travel right now. Our contact-less arrival and departure procedures make it so you don’t encounter a front desk agent, other guests in hallways, packed elevators, busy lobbies, or common area with the public. Fewer door handles, buttons to press, and less “high touch areas” in general to share with the public.
Private Amenities: – Having a home with your own pool and outdoor space is ideal when it comes to worry free enjoyment of Florida’s beautiful sunshine, foliage and warmth. The guess work is taken out of who last used your beach chair or touched the railing to enter the pool. While not a fun topic, using your private restroom facilities instead of the hotel operated pool bathrooms is an added plus as well!
Dining & Meal Prep – Unlike a hotel, all of our rentals have well stocked kitchens with all equipment needed to whip up a delicious meal. While local restaurants are open to limited capacity, for some, the idea of eating in public is still not appealing. Not only do guests save money by not dining out as much as they would be in a hotel, but it’s nice to know who and how your dishes were last washed and handled by. Our grocery stores are clean, practicing social distancing rules, and well stocked for guests to load up on anything you should need for your vacation inspired culinary creations!
Social Distancing – Contact with others takes place solely at your discretion when renting a private vacation home, a key feature that most hotels simply cannot offer. While most in our community are still practicing social distancing rules and wearing masks, peace of mind when being able to control your own environment is priceless.
