Top Ten Luxury Vacation Rentals For Fun Getaways
Vacation rentals: enjoy a home away from home with lavish amenities in prime locations. According to many industry insiders, the vacation rental market is on the rise. Lodging industry expert Glenn Haussman recently reported on the “explosive growth” of vacation rentals in recent years.
“Vacation rentals are really starting to catch on,” said Margie Van Zee, COO and Founder of Bella Palazzo, a company that markets high-end vacation rental homes to discerning travelers. “This is a more intimate experience and we are also able to offer all the hotel type amenities and services.”
Haussman also notes that this surge in vacation rental business is in sync with the current economic crisis. “Travelers look for ways to not only save money but also the ability for multiple generations of a family or a group of friends to spend more intimate time with each other.”
Indeed, many of even the most lavish vacation rental properties offer prices that, when divided among a group of 10 or 12, can cost less than or equal to a traditional hotel room.
