Do you know Luxury when you travel?
When you travel, or you rent a property away from home, what’s your definition of luxury? Do you fly first class? How about rent a luxury car like a Cadillac, Mercedes, or anything a bit nicer than the average coupe, sedan, or SUV?
What about the home that you rent when you and a few families are taking a vacation? Do you rent something like the below?
We of course want you to experience life’s luxuries, and renting a gorgeous home is one of the best things you can do when you are on vacation. Why? Because you can have a vacation, and go back to a luxury home to sleep at night, or you can throw parties at your luxury home instead of going out to the bars, or to fancy restaurants. Even if you don’t have too much money to spend while going on vacations, nowadays, luxury home rentals in places like Fort Lauderdale, Scottsdale, AZ, and around the country are getting more and more affordable if you go in with multiple other people or families for a weeklong or greater rental.
Think about it – you have 5 families, and you are all renting a $10,000 per week luxury home that sleeps 25 people. If you were to rent hotel rooms, go out to eat, do things around any city that you are visiting – the bill just for that would be exorbitant, and you would probably spend the same amount of money on the hotels that you would spend on the luxury home rental.
We did some experimenting years ago when we were just getting into the luxury home property management business. We took vacations to nice places like Florida, California, and stayed in luxury hotels like The Four Seasons, The Ritz, and nothing lower than a Hilton. For the 4-5 star hotels, you were looking at least $300 per night, and that was about 5 years ago. You would be lucky nowadays to get hotel rooms that sleep more than 4 people for under $300 a night (Super 8, or Motel 6 is obviously excluded).
Our point is, you should look into renting a luxury property wherever you go.
What else is the bonus of renting a nice place when you travel? You get to see multiple different styles of luxury home building, and see many different ways that homes are built around the nation. Take Scottsdale for example. You will find massive estates in Scottsdale, every single one of them outfitted with a swimming pool to fend off the hot temperatures, and all of them beautifully landscaped. If you were to travel to Vail, Colorado, you might not find that pool, but you might be right next to the slopes.
Because of VRBO and Air B&B, there are so many homes you can rent. Just be sure to reach out to people who have rented those places in the past.
