Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Consider Staying In An Apartment While On Vacation

Holiday apartments are increasing in trend, as they’re considered an alternative for travellers who prefer to avoid crowds, are looking for a quiet sanctuary in their chosen destination and like additional services and amenities that allot of hotels don’t offer.

Holiday apartments also provide you with the feeling of having a home away from home. You’ll be able to enjoy finding all of the amenities you have in your own place and sometimes even more.

Here are the top 5 benefits of staying in a apartment while on vacation:

  • Enjoy the privacy of being in your own space

Apartments provide you with privacy and space that most hotels can’t offer. If you’re travelling in a group or with family, then an apartment may be more ideal – everyone has the opportunity to have their own rooms, more bathrooms to share and a kitchen, dinning and lounge area.

  • Say goodbye to set hours for meals, check-in and check-out times

Apartments offer allot more flexibility than hotels. You can arrange a preferred time to check-in and out with the landlord, so you don’t need to stress about your arrival and departure times for flights. There are apartments who even offer to stock your fridge for you, so by the time you get there you don’t have to think about popping to the supermarket straight away as the fridge is filled with all your desired foods, snacks and drinks.

  • Many landlords allow their guests to have pets

Many pet owners consider their pets like family, so when it comes to travelling it can be a hassle in finding the right hotel that has all of the required amenities, services and also allows pets. Apartments give you the home away from home feeling to make you and your pet feel as comfortable as possible, as well as providing you with a few personal luxury bonuses like a private pool, balcony, etc.

  • Great for large groups for family and friends as there is more space to play around with

As explained above in ‘Enjoy the privacy of being in your own space’ – apartments give family and friends enough space to enjoy their own privacy in their separate rooms as well as having communal areas like the kitchen and pool area to regroup and socialise. Apartments allow you to not be under each others feet and can also help reduce bickering!

  • Can invite guests for parties and gatherings without worrying about restricted number of people per room

Hotels have strict policies when it comes to people per room and rightly so, as you have to be considerate to other guests. However, an apartment gives you the option to host parties and gatherings at your own discretion as long as everything is left in tact of course!
