While planning for your trip to Naples, you are maybe wondering to yourself: where should I stay, in a hotel or in a vacation rental? Both have their pros and cons, however there are some benefits that outweigh that of a hotel that might just inspire you to book a vacation rental rather than a hotel room.
Naples especially is a hard location to choose between a hotel or a vacation rental because there are so many great luxury and boutique hotels and cozy little inns.
In this blog post, we will go over why you might want to consider a vacation rental over a hotel during your visit to Naples.
#1. Enjoy More Space
Vacation rentals offer more space than most hotel rooms. The reason, vacation rentals are often an entire house, condo, or apartment, while a hotel room is just a room. A vacation rental might be more convenient because you have private access to more than just a room.
#2. Luxury Amenities
You will have access to all the amenities of a luxury hotel, including a lounge with a TV, a kitchen, a pool, internet access and a yard. Plus your party are the only ones who have access to these luxury amenities.
#3. Your Home Away From Home
Additionally, you can truly get that “home away from home” that most hotels promise while you are away with a vacation rental. This is because vacation rentals are homes! Therefore, you have access like you would at your own home.
#4. More Room and Cheaper
If you are traveling with a large group of people, a vacation rental might be a more comfortable and cheaper. This is because you don’t have to purchase multiple hotel rooms fir the all of the guests in your party. You can rent one vacation home, large enough to accommodate everyone in your party. In contrast, purchasing multiple hotel rooms for everyone in your party might be more expensive and not guarantee comfortable, large rooms.
#5. Kid Friendly
Kids staying in a vacation rental with their parents have the option of having their own room, have a nice comfortable place to watch TV and play video games, and maybe go take a dip in a private pool. If your children are picky eaters, you have your own kitchen to prepare meals that they will like without going to restaurants.
#6. Cook if You Like
If you like to cook, or want to save money on your meals while visiting Naples, a vacation rental might be the best option. Most vacation rentals have large, gourmet kitchens in them, so you can cook while you are on vacation! This not only saves money, but allows you the chance to try some of the local regional cuisine.
Try and cook things like fried grouper sandwiches, smoked mullet spread, key lime pie, and if you are adventurous enough, fried gator tail nuggets. We are also home to great local seafood including shrimp, snapper, wahu, mahi-mahi, and stone crab claws. Florida is also known for its great produce, including oranges, tomatoes and grapefruit just to name a few.
Other Vacation Rental Benefits
Vacation rentals tend to be a lot cheaper than a hotel room, especially if you want to stay longer than three days. This is because you can often get a weekly or monthly rate. In the cases that the rate is by the day, you can still save money because you can actually cook rather than dine at a restaurant every night.
Bonus: Do Laundry (If You Want)
Furthermore, you can do your own laundry, without paying extra for each piece as you would at a hotel. You can also get more space, and more amenities than you would if you chose to stay at a luxury hotel, for a half, sometimes a third of the price for one room! These amenities include a full service kitchen, a pool, access to the lake or beach, walk-in closets, large showers with spa-like features, and a screened in porch that includes a BBQ.
In Naples, choosing a vacation rental might help you get close to the beach, without the price tag! You can often find vacation rentals that are close to the beach, yet are just as nice as a luxury beach resort, yet not as expensive per night! If you are traveling on a budget, yet want to have a great time at the beach with the whole family, and also want all the luxuries of a fine, luxury beach resort, than a vacation rental might just be for you!
You can also stay for longer than three days, or even a week if you choose a vacation rental rather than a hotel room. This way, you can actually afford to stay longer than a few days, and do so with all the comforts of home. In Naples, this can be to your advantage because there are a lot of sites beyond its city limits that will require you to have a car, which might take up some time.
Guests who choose to stay in a vacation rental also have the opportunity to get that local experience that they wouldn’t get if they stayed in a hotel. Vacation rentals are often located in quaint neighborhoods, sometimes away from the action.
However, you might have the chance to get an idea of what Naples is like when you aren’t in the touristy sections of town. You might also welcome this after a long day of fishing, hiking or kayaking, where you can come home to a quiet neighborhood and a house with no chances of staff or other visitors to bother you.
So if you are coming to Naples, you might want to consider getting a vacation rental rather than a hotel room! It is cheaper, yet you will get a nicer accommodation than you would if you stayed in a hotel, and have the space and comforts that will be suitable for the entire family!
