When you're on vacation you have choices of where to stay. Some like staying in a small hotel room and eating out at restaurants, while others prefer staying in a spacious vacation rental. Vacation rentals have more space than a normal hotel room and there's a full kitchen where you can make your own meals without having to go out or schedule your day around when breakfast is being served. That's just one reason to choose a rental versus a hotel. Overall vacation rentals are a better value than a hotel and give you more flexibility and more room to stretch out and enjoy your vacation.
