Three Tips For Finding and Renting The Perfect Multi-Family Vacation Rental

Travel Blog

If you want to save money and make memories with your loved ones, consider renting a vacation property with one or more families. To ensure that everyone has an amazing time on the trip, it is important to make sure that the family vacation rental fits everyone's needs. Here are a few tips for finding a fantastic multi-family vacation rental. 

1. Pay Attention to More Than the Size of the Unit

When renting a unit with another family, you may be tempted to just select the largest unit that fits your budget to make sure that everyone has ample space. Though space is crucial, you also want to make sure the logistics of the rental are appropriate for more than one family.

Inquire what kind of furniture the rental has so that you can decide if it will accommodate both families. For example, you want there to be enough seating in the living room for members of both families to have a place to relax. The number of dining seats in the dining space is another area to research.

Check that the rental has ample dishes and cookware to comfortably house such a large group of people. You don't want to have to wash dishes mid-meal just to serve the rest of your group. If the rental is lacking, you need to know ahead of time so that you can make different arrangements (such as purchasing disposable plates and plastic silverware). 

2. Select a Layout That Encourages Privacy

Even if you absolutely adore the family you are vacationing with, each family is going to want occasional privacy. If one or both families have small children, privacy is essential to give the kids a chance to decompress or catch a nap.

Inspect the layout of the property to see if it can give everyone the space they need. You may prefer a unit that separates the bedrooms with a shared family area. Remember to look at the location of the bathrooms as well. Ideally, each family should have convenient access to their own bathroom.

3. Research the Property's Parking Rules

Some properties limit the number of cars that you can park at the property. Additional cars may not be permitted, or you may have to pay an extra parking fee if you have more than your allotted number of cars.

If you are traveling to an area with many attractions within walking distance, vehicle restrictions may not be a concern. However, if each family has to drive one or more vehicles just to get to the property or if a vehicle is a necessity for the vacation area, restrictions may put a damper on your fun. See how many cars your property will permit, and check to see if there are any restrictions concerning the size or type of the vehicles.
