Why Staying in a Vacation Rental Home Is the Best Choice for Your Vacation!


Key Factors 

  • Length of Stay
    • Amenities
    • Group Size
    • Security
    • Cost Efficiency
    • Meals

Length of Stay

Family vacations are usually week-long, and booking a longer stay is easier and more cost-effective when renting a vacation home.


Unlike hotels, vacation home amenities are exclusive to the guests in the home. You’ll always have the privacy to make memories that will last a lifetime! Guests at Fripp Island Resort enjoy pools, decks, sitting areas, full-size kitchens, and so much more!

Group Size

Staying at a hotel can get costly quickly when you have family or friends. Vacation rental homes can be in all shapes and sizes, so you’ll have plenty of space for everyone in your group.


Vacation rental homes offer more security than hotels. Guests have privacy and the protection of the neighborhood you’re staying in. You’ll feel tucked away and safe when staying in a vacation home!


Cooking a homemade meal in a hotel is difficult and requires a functional kitchen and dining space. In a vacation rental home, guests can access a full-size kitchen and room to enjoy a meal as a family! This is also another excellent opportunity to make memories with loved ones.

Cost Efficiency

Hotel rooms typically offer a bedroom, bathroom, and a small sitting area. Vacation rental homes have multiple private bedrooms, full-size kitchens, dining rooms, a living room, laundry, and so much more! This is the way to go for cost efficiency! Additionally, Online Travel Agents (OTAs) like HomeAway, VRBO, and VacationRentals charge a “traveler fee” to reservations booked through their websites. It varies from 4%-10% of the total value of the booking (not to exceed $499). If you book through these sites, you can review the fee by looking at “view details” of the booking section.

Overall, staying in a vacation rental home offers privacy for you and your family, exclusive amenities to enjoy, and cost efficiency.
