Family Vacations – Tips to make the most of an Owner Direct Vacation Rental

Everyone loves a good family vacation. After just getting back from one, let me share with you my family’s top tips on making the most of staying at an Owner Direct Vacation Rental.

Location, location, location.

When planning for your holiday, do your research and select a vacation home that is close to the attractions and locales that you plan to visit. If you’re planning to meet up with family and friends, select a location that’s easy for everyone to get to.

Plan for space for everyone.

Find a vacation home that has space for everyone. There is many larger vacation rentals that can easily handle a couple families with secondary hangout rooms for the teenagers if needed. Look for vacation homes with plenty of activities too – pool, games room, big back yard, or close to the beach.

Pack smart.

It’s a good idea to pack a few days early and even do some meal planning before your vacation. Bring lots of snacks and a few kids activities for the ride there. Once you’ve got the plan in place, it’s smooth sailing.

Upon arrival – check it all out!

There’s nothing like arriving at your new destination and seeing all that’s available. Check out the views. Let the kids pick their bedrooms. Let the vacation fun begin!

Jump in the pool.

Shared mealtime.

Nothing gets people together more than cooking and sharing a meal. Staying at a vacation rental means you have full access to kitchen facilities where everyone can join in creating and eating a meal together. Going out to a restaurant can be fun too.

Play a game.

From tag in the backyard to playing a board game found in the cupboard or a fun card game around the kitchen table – there is lots of fun ways to reconnect and hangout with the family. When was the last time you played charades?
