Hotel or House?: Chit Chat#14

No one loves a great luxury hotel experience as much as I do.

I am an addict. I simply love them. Incredible room, service at your fingertips, some form of private concierge amenity, butler service on your floor, the list goes on and on. I feel like Eloise at the Plaza in the 1960’s.

BUT that’s when I am traveling alone. For family trips, I always rent a house. Either privately, through VRBO or AirBNB. For years with my son and often 4 or 5 family members in tow, I would rent houses in the Caribbean because the savings were insane, we were on a beach and the house came with cleaning and if we so desired, someone to come in and cook dinner. I rent homes when I am skiing, too. The cost per person represented a huge savings.

So what do you prefer:

Luxury hotel…. Or your own vacation home for the week?

And do you have a favorite way to rent a home? A service you prefer? Everyone wants to know!
