6 Benefits of Staying in a Luxury Home on Your Multi-family Vacation

November 3, 2020 Vacation Rental Insider Destinations | Travelers

Have you ever gone on a multi-family vacation? Are there family members or friends that you love having along on your trips? More and more, vacationers are choosing to go on combined family vacations, both for the financial benefit and for the fun. Here are some great reasons for staying in a HolidayRental.com luxury home rather than a hotel or resort.
 

 

1) Cost Savings

One of the most appreciated benefits of booking a multi-family vacation is being able to split the cost of the reservation with another family. When compared to the price of a resort or hotel for multiple families in different rooms, renting a luxury vacation home often makes the most sense financially.

 

2) More Space

The spacious homes at HolidayRental.com provide the ideal getaway for more than one family. Each luxury home has plenty of space for more than one family to comfortably spread out and relax. With multiple bedrooms, each guest has a private place to rest, while still enjoying a common area to gather in. Multi-family guests also enjoy being able to prepare meals in a large, fully stocked kitchen, which they would not be able to do in a resort or hotel.  The cost of two or three families dining out for breakfast, lunch and dinner is extensive, so having a large, gourmet kitchen and duel sub-zero refrigerator is a great benefit.

 

3) Valuable Family Time

HolidayRental.com understands the importance of spending time together as a family. Making memories with your family and close friends is so important in today’s busy world. Spending quality time with your loved ones in one of our luxury rental homes makes for an unforgettable experience. Each of our homes have a pool, outdoor bars, barbecues, beautiful views, outdoor seating areas and backyard games for the children to enjoy. Another perk of luxury getaways is having separate areas for kids and adults. Kids and teens love to watch movies in the theater room and hang out in the game room while adults sit by the outdoor fire pit and enjoy the views with a glass of wine.
 

 

4) Increased Privacy

One of the most sought-after perks of staying in a luxury vacation home is privacy, especially during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Our homes offer the utmost privacy for your family and friends while on vacation in Scottsdale. We also pride ourselves on offering complete discretion throughout the booking process and during your stay. Guests are placing far more value on not staying in a hotel or resort with hundreds of other families. Our luxury Scottsdale vacation rentals provide you with all the space and activities of a hotel or resort without the added inconvenience of sharing the space with hundreds of strangers.

 

5) Coordination Ease

When planning a multi-family vacation, it’s often hard to ensure that everyone is on the same page. When staying in a resort, families and friends are often separated from one another, which makes going out and about and coordinating mealtimes a hassle. When staying in a luxury home, everyone is together in one spacious home, which makes gathering much easier. The reservation process is also much simpler. Rather than having to make multiple room reservations, you can choose the perfect home for your needs and then go through one easy booking process.
 

 

6) Amenities and Services

When it comes to keeping the family happy, people often enjoy the room service, concierge services and amenities that come with staying in a resort or hotel. With HolidayRental.com’s luxury vacation rentals, our guests still get to enjoy all those services, but with the benefits of staying in a spacious home. Enjoy access to the area’s best concierge service providers, including amazing massage therapists, accredited childcare, top luxury tours, grocery services and renowned personal chefs. You’ll also be provided with top-of-the-line amenities, including clean quality linens, a well-stocked kitchen, toiletries, luxury extras and so much more. In short, you’ll get all of the amazing resort-style amenities with the privacy and space of a luxury home.
