Why Book a Vacation Rental Property?

I love to stay in a vacation rental home, especially when traveling with children. Rental properties tend to cost less than a night in a hotel and offer much more space to spread out. Separate bedrooms for the kiddos mean better sleep for all (and more romance for mom and dad!). Add conveniences like a full kitchen, living room and an in-unit washer and dryer to make vacationing easier and more fun. Rental homes are THE way to go if traveling with extended family for a multigenerational vacations.


Why Wyndham Vacation Rentals?
