What to Look for When Booking a Vacation Home


Have you ever felt like you need to take a vacation simply from planning your vacation? It can be taxing, as there is so much to consider when trying to figure out where to go, how to get there, where to stay, and what to do when you get there. Here, we make finding your luxury vacation rental home a little easier by laying out exactly what to look for when browsing all of your choices.

Rental Vacation Home Amenities

Before booking your luxury vacation home, it’s wise to determine what features are most important, what you can live without, and what your deal breakers are. For instance, if you absolutely must have a pool to let your children enjoy while you relax with a good book, only view homes with a swimming pool you love. If you plan to work on your vacation, perhaps a home office is a top priority. 

Here is a list of vacation home amenities that many people prioritize when searching for a luxury getaway:

  • Square footage
  • Number of beds and how many they sleep
  • Pool and / or hot tub
  • Kid / pet friendliness
  • Satellite / cable
  • Washer / dryer 
  • Wi-Fi

Vacation Home Location

Finding the perfect vacation home location requires a little forethought into what you might want to do while you’re away from home and how close to a beach or grocery store you want to be. Some activities that may be important to consider are:

  • Beach access
  • Shopping malls
  • Restaurants
  • Hiking
  • Snorkeling
  • Diving
  • Museums

Be sure to plan your vacation home around your priorities. If you want to be able to spend a lot of time at the beach and eating out, then you want to locate a rental that is close to shore with plenty of dining options nearby. If you are traveling with a family, it is helpful to sit down and list preferences, so that you can choose the ideal spot based on everyone’s wants and needs.

Hidden Fees

You do not want to have budgeted for your vacation, only to show up and find out there are hidden fees you have to pay. You want to rent from someone who is completely upfront with their pricing. Some fees you may want to ask about are:

  • Security deposit
  • Cleaning fees
  • Taxes
  • Cancellation fees

Excellent Vacation Home Property Management

You want a vacation home from a property manager that is reliable and protects you as a renter. Pay attention to how quickly they respond to you and whether they treat you personably. See if they offer you any types of protections or guarantees related to the rental and whether they have insurance coverage. Also, read the contract thoroughly. Be sure to ask questions before renting. Some of the questions you may want to ask include:

  1. How close is the rental to the airport, grocery shopping, restaurants, the beach, movie theaters, and other types of entertainment? 
  2. Is the rental located in a quiet area?
  3. Who do I contact if I have problems during my stay? 
  4. What is included in the cleaning fee / How much cleaning am I expected to do before I leave?
