Most hotel rooms are exactly what the name implies, just one room with a bath. Most luxury condos offer two to three bedrooms with a full kitchen and baths. This can be an important feature for anyone wanting moments of privacy, be it a party of adults, parents with young children, or teens. The space that you find in a condo versus a hotel room is especially comforting. Most condos also come with a full size washer and dryer, which saves vacationers the hefty expense hotels charge for laundry.
A fully stocked kitchen is no comparison to the mini fridge that normally comes with a hotel room. All full size major appliances are provided, along with smaller ones such as coffee makers, blenders and toasters. Once you purchase the groceries for your vacation, you have the option of eating in instead of paying to dine out for every meal and snack. This will save a ton of money over the duration of your vacation. It also provides your party with an extreme convenience.
In the instance where you run short on clothing, you won’t have to purchase additional pieces when you stay at condos. If you packed too little, or if you accidentally stained your outfit, you can have them laundered in the convenience of your condo. No outrageous fees to send out your clothing through hotel services.
Staying at a vacation condo rental offers you the same hotel conveniences as you are typically located within the resort areas. Each property location typically has its own pool, some include a fitness center and barbecue pavilion.
Next time when you vacation please consider staying at a luxury condominium rather than a hotel.

There is a new vacation rental website that will be great for both vacation home owners as well as travelers. www.vacationrentalstop.com will offer an array of vacation rentals in the USA for travelers to choose from. For vacation home owners they are currently offering a great deal on new listings and offer a nice look to their site to make your property look good.
For the first few months they will will focusing on Hawaii vacation rentals and Florida vacation rentals. With the owners of the site currently owning a vacation rental in both Hawaii and Florida, they know those two markets really well.
While a vacation to Hawaii can be costly, it is an experience that most people do not want to pass up. While the economy is struggling many people have continued to vacation, but are attempting to cut costs where they can. Many airlines are offering good deals and rentals car rates are also going down. Staying at Hawaii condos are also smart financial choices travelers are making. Not only are the nightly rates better, but you can also save on dining in since you have full size kitchens in most condos.
Over the course of the last two years with tourism down, vacation rental rates have dropped almost 20% at Wailea condos and Oahu condos. Due to this hotels, along with other vacation rentals, have become more competitive driving down rates and making the vacationer the only winner of the situation.
One of my favorite places to vacation is the Big Island of Hawaii. Recently we stayed in the Waikoloa Beach Resort. This resort is great for families and offers a lot. They recently built the Queens Marketplace, which adds more restaurants and shopping to the resort.
We rented a condo through Waikoloa Vacation Rentals. They were very helpful and gave us a great rate. We had done our looking around prior to them and noticed that the Waikoloa Beach Resort has numerous condo complexes. With the economy down the rates were competitive. We decided to stay at Kolea at Waikoloa Beach. We chose this complex because it is the only complex in the Waikoloa Beach Resort with direct beach access. The interiors also seem to be more spacious and luxurious than the other complexes in the Waikoloa Beach Resort.
If you ever decide to go to Hawaii I would recommend contacting Waikoloa Vacation Rental Management to help you set up your vacation.
In 2009 the condo rental market seems to be coming more competitive. Here are some reasons why:
1) With the economy struggling many homeowners are doing whatever it takes to get the most out of their condo. In the slow times you will see prices reduced almost in half because they are looking to just get whatever they can versus it staying unoccupied.
2) In 2006 and 2007 many people purchased condos in speculation. When they found out they were going to be unable to sell them they put them on the vacation rental market causing more competition.
3) The last reason is not as big of a reason as others, but it still has caused the market to become more competitive. Some owners that have owned condos have let them sit vacant rather than renting them out. When the economy became soft they looked for additional income and thought it would be better to generate it from their vacation rental property rather than let it sit empty.
Setting up a vacation at times can be overwhelming. It can be tough to find the right flight, destination, and accommodation. We decided to put together a site that would give you more information on these items.
Although in some cases a hotel is the best option, we feel the best value is through vacation rentals. We have a lot of knowledge regarding vacation condo rentals in Hawaii as well as Florida. Throughout the course of this blog we hope to share a lot of information with you regarding vacation rentals in these areas and expand to more areas.
We will also provide you with information on luxury hotels in Hawaii and Florida.
