We recently had the chance to stay in a #HomeAway rental for our latest empty nest travel adventure. HomeAway provided us with the complimentary stay to book a vacation rental. All opinions shared are our honest experiences.
7 Reasons why we prefer to book a vacation rental
Personal Touches – Empty nest travel is a bit different than family travel. It’s more personal. The property we chose, in Terre Hill, PA was full of personal touches. We were welcomed to our stay with a handwritten note, fresh baked blondies, a full cookie jar and a refrigerator well stocked with breakfast foods. When you feel at home, you are more comfortable and have a better time all around.
Experiences – You can create the memories you want to make! Morning tea, midnight snacks, romantic music or a couples massage. When you book a vacation rental, you control the agenda. You can do what you love.
Imagine the fabulous time we had relaxing and fostering our love of reading in this vintage inspired nook featuring wooden theater chairs and a gorgeous antique rug. We spent many hours tucked in the eaves of the guest bedroom content to just sit and enjoy the quietness.
Sipping tea on the cafe style table, browsing the area attractions and enjoying fresh made chocolate chip cookies was a great way to start the day.
Privacy – When you stay at a rental home, you are basically on your own. If you need the property owners, they are just a phone call away, but if you don’t enjoy doing your own thing. Relax and enjoy!
Space – Even though there are only the two of us on our empty nest travels, we like our space. A comfy reading chair, double shower and large table for games and puzzles. Believe it or not, sometimes we don’t like to be close to each other. The HomeAway website its a top free resource for travelers to find the accomodations that fits their vacation or business needs.
Affordability – Vacation rentals come in all sizes and prices. HomeAway is one of the world’s leading online vacation rental marketplaces with millions of properties in hundreds of countries. HomeAway vacation rentals can provide twice the space at half the price of an average hotel stay. Big or small you and your family can have it all under one roof.
Availability – Whether it be in a big city or a remote location, there is a good chance a vacation rental will be available in the area. We usually choose our destinations based on the local activities and then book a vacation rental. Lancaster County PA is a great place to visit. There are antique stores galore. Authentic PA Dutch Country food, Amish farms and shopping is plentiful. There are year round activities for all ages and tastes. Along with the property we stayed in there are hundreds of other vacation rentals in the area. Be sure to check them out on the HomeAway website and plan a visit today!
Choice – When you book a vacation rental you make the choices. How many bathrooms do you need? What size bed would you prefer? Kitchen? Laundry? Find what you need and make it your own. Vacations are your time to get away and relax. Let HomeAway make your stay easy and enjoyable.
The HomeAway site makes it easy to choose rentals that meet our wants and needs. Each listing showcases the reviews and photos of properties to use as a guide. Being able to take a virtual tour of the cottage we chose ensured we’d be happy with our stay. That was exactly our experience. From the personal touches to the decor to the provided breakfast foods, this cottage made our empty nest adventures weekend a delightful experience.
We thoroughly enjoyed out empty nest weekend in Terre Hill, PA. The HomeAway vacation rental was better than we could have expected. Exploring the markets, antique stores and restaurants were a great way to spend the days. We even had the chance to meet up with friends we hadn’t seen in years. Lancaster County PA and a HomeAway vacation rental make a great pair!
