Finding the perfect accommodations is crucial to planning a holiday. While everyone’s idea of the ideal vacation rental is different, there are a few amenities that pretty much everyone doesn’t want to do without. Here are the three essential amenities any great vacation rental should have.
3 Must-Have Vacation Rental Amenities
1. Fast, Free Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi is probably the most expected and essential amenity in any rental. Unless you’re explicitly seeking an off-the-grid getaway in a rustic cabin or yurt, you’ll expect to have access to Wi-Fi in your room. Wi-Fi allows you to catch up on emails, check and update social media, look up information, and stream entertainment without using costly cell phone data.
One of the main advantages of renting a vacation home instead of a standard hotel room is that you can cook homemade meals instead of going out for every meal. Rental homes should have a kitchenette or kitchen equipped with basic cookware and appliances, such as a coffeemaker, pots, pans, utensils and dishes, a stove or microwave, and a refrigerator.
After a long day of fun, it’s nice to unwind in front of the TV before bed. TV is particularly important for guests with children, as it’s difficult to fill every bit of time with activities—and kids can get restless quickly. Even if the property doesn’t have satellite or cable, they should supply television and a streaming service subscription or a variety of DVDs for you to watch.
