Sharing A Vacation Villa With Your Friends

The short-term vacation-rental market has exploded in recent years, aided by climbing hotel room prices and homeowners’ motivation to earn money from their vacation homes. For many visitors, it comes down to straightforward economics: An elegant four-bedroom condo or even a sprawling vacation villa can be far less costly than a fancy hotel. Regardless of the size of one’s bank account, everyone enjoys a bargain.
For large groups and multiple families: share the space!
At an upscale residential property with numerous bedrooms and bathrooms, you can host your kids, grand kids, friends and extended family for less money than what you’d pay for separate hotel rooms.
The trick to smooth sharing is good communication. Before the trip, be sure to discuss costs, special food requirements, mealtimes, grocery shopping and special needs with your traveling companions.
Vacation rhythms also come into play. If your holiday friends like to get up early and hit the hiking trails and you prefer to sleep in and grab a late brunch, there’s going to be friction. It’s always best to get everyone’s cards on the table early and devise solutions.
When on vacation, rub shoulders with the locals
Sharing a vacation villa is a fabulous way to completely settle into a destination and live like a local. Plus, when traveling families bring kids it’s often more stress-free for the adults when the kids have the ongoing companionship of other kids.
