July is National Vacation Rental Month and oh, how I wish I were at a beachfront condo with the family this week. The beach always makes for some fond memories…
When we were considering when and where to vacation with the family, my first choice was San Diego. You know…something along the lines of this Charleston, SC beauty from Wyndham Vacation Rentals:
And I’m thinking this condo in Hilton Head, SC isn’t too shabby either:
Tropical locations are always my first choice.
I’m a California girl at heart, and though I was raised in the Bay Area, I’m always drawn to the southern half of the state with its warmer waters and beautiful beaches. Plus it’s only a day’s drive from Utah—and driving is about the only option for travel when you have four kids.
Sadly this week was the only week where we didn’t (originally) have scheduling conflicts…and then Driver’s Ed got thrown into the mix and here we are. Still in Utah.
But a vacation rental in San Diego is still my dream, and my mom has promised me we’ll make it there next year. Of course, we’ll have to rent a villa if all 11 of us go, but it will be so worth it. I’ll always choose a vacation rental over hotel whenever possible because of the perks:
- More space
- Fully equipped kitchen
- Washer & dryer (hello, sand sticks to EVERYTHING)
- Multiple bedrooms…and therefore multiple beds
- WiFi (usually)
- Free parking
Many of the vacation rentals near the beach are also stocked with beach towels, pool toys and beach chairs. That leaves more room in the suitcases for souvenirs!
Though you’ll find many vacation rental sites on the Interweb, Wyndham Vacation Rentals is a leader in professionally managed vacation rentals. With their “Vacation Rental Bill of Rights®” (a service pledge ensuring quality standards, comprehensive customer service and real-time payment and bookings), you’ll have greater peace of mind before, during and after your vacation.
With four kids, I need all the peace of mind I can get. Oh, and privacy glass in the minivan.
To celebrate National Vacation Rentals Month, Wyndham Vacation Rentals is offering summer deals at up to 35 percent off nightly rates on bookings made throughout July at www.WyndhamVacationRentals.com. They have properties ranging from private homes and condos in beach destinations (yay!) such as Florida, South Carolina and Alabama’s Gulf Coast to mountain-side condos and luxury cabins in Colorado, Utah (hey! that’s us!), Tennessee and Idaho.
Basically they have anything and everything you could want when looking at vacation ideas for your family.
I’m already counting down the days (okay, I’m starting with months) until we can vacation as a family in San Diego. Early June 2014 is looking like the perfect time for some sandy and sunny R&R. And if I can’t wait that long, Christmas is looking pretty good too.
