1. With a vacation rental you get more space.
2. There’s no need to dress up or “put on a face” to go out of your room.
3. It’s cheaper – especially for a party of 3 or more people and for a group.
4. It’s more practical, preparing some of your own meals or getting take-aways is cheaper than always eating in restaurants, foodies can buy and sample the local specialities.
5. And to summarise – you get to “live like a local”.
