Five Things to Consider When Booking Your Vacation Rental

  • Posted on
  1. Location is key. You'll want to consider both the proximity of your vacation rental and its general setting. For example, if you're traveling on foot or with just bicycle equipment then finding one that offers plenty for guests' cars might not be necessary- but when driving standard traffic there's no way around having some sort of gas station nearby so make sure it can offer full services before booking anything else.
"Proximity", meaning how close they are located to other amenities such as restaurants/bars, etc. is important to consider as well. This will help you narrow down locations based on preferences. Luckily for you Urbanize offers local guides and suggestions for all the great things to do in the Northern CO area.

  1. Size matters. Think about the size of your vacation rental before you book it. When considering which property to reserve, consider how many people will be staying in this space and what their needs might entail so that everyone has an enjoyable stay no matter where they are located within the house!

A bachelor or bachelorette with lots of people may need lots of rooms and bathrooms to accommodate people's needs. Whereas, booking a larger property for a single-family with small children might be too much room and create more challenges.

  1. Amenities are important. Some vacation rentals come with a variety of different amenities, from full kitchens to pools and hot tubs, bikes to get around, and more! 

What activities do you have planned? Consider what you need when looking for your next rental so that it meets all those needs too - just like this one here at Hacienda Indoor Pool has everything anyone could hope for in their getaway weekend or week-long staycation adventure.
