Top Myths about Vacation Rentals

Top Myths about Vacation Rentals

Despite the rapid rise in their popularity, travellers across the world still have a number of myths in their minds about vacation rentals. All across the world, governments and trade associations are doing their best to promote vacation rentals as a great travel option.

Yet there are many misconceptions that sometimes make a traveller wary of staying in a vacation rental premises. Here are some of them:

Myth No.1:

Poor Infrastructure: It is often believed that since they cost less, vacation rentals are poorly furnished and do not offer modern comforts and facilities to guests. While this may be true for some, yet this trend is changing fast. Many vacation rental owners are running their premises as a professional business. Hence they are very conscious of the level of quality and facilities they offer. The vacation rental industry has matured significantly in the past few years. Therefore you can expect them to offer a fairly decent infrastructure.

Myth No. 2:

Unprofessional Environment: While its true that you will not find uniformed stewards at your service in vacation rental properties, yet that does not mean that you cannot expect quality service. Most owners of vacation rentals now believe in hiring some personnel as help and support to the guests for their housekeeping, laundry, food and other requirements. In fact, the service that you receive in a vacation rental premises is often more personalised and informal as compared to the artificial and curt support that you receive in a hotel.

Myth No. 3:

Absence of Online Booking: A not-so-insignificant percentage of vacation rental owners are making a move towards modern business methods and online booking is one of them. In many countries of Europe and America, today it is not hard to find vacation rental properties that you can book online.

Amazing Two-Floor Penthouse Apartment

This is an amazing two-floor penthouse apartment in a very vibrant part of Manhattan. Everything about our stay was wonderful – from the initial communication with Brain to the checkin process to the really great amenities (including a very good bottle of wine!). Having an outdoor terrace in the heart of the city was just that extra plus that made this all the better. The apartment was clean and the beds very comfortable. The kitchen was large and well appointed and would easily be able to be used to prepare meals for a group or family. The living room/dining room/kitchen area is on the top floor so away form the bedrooms that are on the lower floor. This is great I you have some people that want to stay up late without disturbing others that want to retire early. There are two showers, the larger one has a hand-held shower wand and a large elephant shower head, a steam bath and a Jacuzzi tub. Very great shower experience. East Village also provides an optional car service to/from the major airports (we used it to get to JFK on our departure day). The car service is professional and takes all the hassle out of traveling between the apartment and airport. I highly recommend it if you don’t want to have to think about a taxi or an Uber/Lyft. I really like this place and dealing with Brian throughout the whole process was effortless. I highly recommend staying here!
