Five Reasons Vacation Rentals Are The Top Choice for a Romantic Getaway

rental condosAbout four out of 10 travelers say they feel more romantic while on vacation, and to be honest, why wouldn't they? Vacation is the perfect time for couples to sit back, relax, and spend some quality time getting back into the grandeur of romance. But a hotel room can often feel far from romantic. Instead, here are five reasons why you should look into rental condos for your next couple's getaway.

Food is the way to the heart
In a hotel, you're often limited to a certain selection of foods, and forget about cooking. But in a vacation rental, you'll have the freedom to cook your own food, and do it in a real kitchen. The opportunity to purchase and cook your own food will not only give you a chance to eat healthier, it will also let you sample and support local ingredients! And let's be honest, what's more romantic than cooking and dining together?

Do not disturb!
Eight out of 10 people who enjoy traveling say they believe vacation is very important to their overall well being -- but you can't really relax when you don't have a sense of privacy. In a hotel room, you often have to be extra mindful of the people in rooms around you, as well as staff. In oceanfront condos, all you have to do is sit back and listen to the sound of the waves crashing, because you'll have the whole place to yourself. No noisy kids or nosy guests; you and your honey will have the sweet gift of privacy. And in a place like Sanibel, which has only 6,000 year-round residents, you may just feel like you have the entire island to yourself.

Mood music
With the absence of neighbors comes the opportunity to be a little bit loud. Some beachfront condos come equipped with surround sound, but for those that don't, you can pack wireless speakers and get the party started! Whether you like to croon while you cook, listen in the shower, or set an intimate mood with slow jams, you have the freedom to make any moment a musical one in rental condos.

Special treatment
If you stay in a hotel, you might get pillow chocolates. To a staff, you're just another couple. But to someone running a rental condo? You're a guest at their property, and they'll see to you as such. Knowing that a property is well taken care of is important, and it can make your stay all the more enjoyable. Not only that, but they will be able to give you insider tips about local attractions and events!

Romantic locations
Rental condos are everywhere, which gives you the freedom to choose from countless romantic destinations. If you're in the small town mood, you can visit Sanibel, which is known for over 250 species of shells that can be found on its pristine beaches. No matter where your romance takes you, a vacation rental will provide limitless options.
