The concept of vacation rentals allows people to stay in homes with kitchens, yard space, and comfort. Typically, vacation rentals are 25% less in cost than an “equivalent” hotel room in terms of bed space. There are tremendous advantages with vacation rentals that hotels do not offer.  Of course, there are always risks when traveling.

This guide is for those seeking outstanding vacation rentals around the world. VRBO (Vacation Rental By Owner), the forerunner in online booking and listing of vacation rentals, offers voluntary reviews from a range of people who have stayed in various vacation rentals. Other vacation rental listing services have followed suit. However, The Vacation Rental Travel Guide takes the next step for those who are serious about using vacation rentals as their preferred travel venue!

This publication highlights outstanding vacation rental homes by niche and region. This allows people interested in categories of vacation homes, such as family-focused, or ports-oriented vacation rental locations to get real life information. Like a reality show, you will read an article about the writer’s experience while staying at the featured vacation rental. This guide offers in-depth details including maps of local sites, restaurants, markets, grocery stores, and events that normally get little coverage with on-line vacation rental listings.
