Vacation Properties

We’re a family of five and travel a lot! We used to stay in hotels and never thought there was any other option until we found vacation properties. What a game changer that was!! Sponsored by HomeAway.

What’s the hardest thing when you’re away from home and have kids?? I say the expense of always eating out and laundry!! With vacation rental properties like this one here you don’t have to worry about that any longer. Every moms dream!

Dream right??!!

Instead of all of you cramped in a hotel room for a week wouldn’t you rather let your kids play in this great backyard and take a dip in the pool (and you in the jacuzzi at night)??!!

I thought so……

We’ve stayed in a condo and this home and both times we were given a code we could use on the front door to let us inside. It is much easier than using a key, and when you leave for the day you just click the lock function and everything is secure until you get back.

Every property is different and depending on how big your family is, or how many people you are meeting there. Larger houses are great for family reunions or bridal shower getaways, would determine the size you’d need.

This vacation rental was in Temecula California which is just North of San Diego and in the midst of a lot of things to do like wine tasting, hot air balloon rides, and a large casino as well.

We only have 3 kids but this house in particular was great because in 3 of the rooms were bunk beds.

They had many to choose from and it would be great for more than one family to get together and have the kids bunk together. There were essentially 2 master bedrooms too so you could easily share this residence.

On other stays we rented a condo and it was great mainly because when you rent a house vs. a hotel you have access to a full kitchen and laundry room!

Having the ability to cook at least one meal yourself each day saves a bunch of money and being able to do laundry before you leave and not have a bunch to do when you get home is a game changer for me.
