Any time you get to pack up and spend leisure time elsewhere, life is good. When you can mix in one or more rounds of golf, nirvana. Golfers are increasingly choosing vacation rentals over hotels for their golf travel. Nothing wrong with a good old hotel now and then, but lets look at some of the benefits of crashing in your own vacation home-away-from-home or luxury condo…
Better Amenities for the Traveling Golfer.
Many vacation rental properties offer private amenities to make your golf trip sail smoothly. Having a fully-equipped kitchen, 24/7 free laundry just down the hall, and off-street parking just a few feet away from you residence all help when hitting the links away from your own homestead. No more lugging your golf bag through the parking lot and lobby.
Better Value Compared to Local Hotel Options.
Golf Condos and Villas will usually provide you and your golf buddies more space and privacy than local hotel/motel offerings. Not paying out the nose for parking, wifi, and restaurant-priced dining will leave more money in your wallet for post-golf cocktails. Additionally, splitting even a luxury golf-vacation rental several ways can usually meet or beat the cost of obtaining numerous area hotel reservations for your group.
More Suitable for Larger Groups.
Thinking of cramming your party into a block of dispersed hotel rooms? Renting a property with several bedrooms, bathrooms and spacious common areas will simply give your golf group more space to mingle and enjoy. The pool at your hotel may close at 9pm, but your private backyard hot tub will likely run until you run out of cocktails or great putts to fib about.
Privacy and Sanitization Advantages.
Hotels, especially established chains, have certainly stepped up there cleaning regiment as of late for obvious reasons. Having said that, nothing will be more hygienic for your group than a well-sanitized private home or condo. Once you’re in, just your group occupies the space. Clean when you arrive, no risk of new guests or hotel workers contaminating your space or common areas.
More Kid Friendly.
If your golf-travel group includes one or more little people, all the more fun! Rental units can make traveling with children simpler and less stressful. Finding a quiet space for a baby to nap, letting the kids run themselves ragged in a fenced-in back-yard, private pools and local parks all help your little loved ones enjoy their stay. Also, as crazy as it may sound, some kids are very picky eaters. A private kitchen and loaded fridge helps keep kids stay on their food routines and parents on happy vacation mode.
Whatever your golf-travel plans are, have a safe trip and a low-scoring round. Remember to enjoy all the local flavor your destination has to offer, and consider renting a luxury golf vacation home or condo if you want your group to have the trip they deserve.
