Renting condos or vacation home v. a hotel

We'll share a secret. Hotels are expensive and considering what you get for your money they are not a great vacation option for families.


Vacation homes offer vacationers several advantages. First, there are great weekly rates. This is especially true if you have a larger family or group.  Try renting three hotel rooms for you, the kids and uncle Bob and his wife. You'll quickly find that not only is this inconvenient but also very expensive. The solution is simple. A vacation home! Here are some great reasons why renting a beach vacation home is a better value. 

Having a kitchen allows you to quickly prepare meals without dining out. As we all know from everyday life, eating out can be expensive if you do it for every meal of the day. Vacation homes help mitigate that expense. We have locations all over North Topsail Beach, Surf City, and Topsail Beach.  A vacation rental gives you maximum flexibility in choosing where on Topsail Island you want to be. Choose your amenities? Think of it this way, you pay for that pool at the hotel whether you want it or not. When choosing a vacation home, you decide what amenities are important to you and that you are willing to pay for. Finally, there is the flexibility. From condos to eight bedroom homes, there is room for a romantic getaway to a huge family gathering. Want to learn more? Click here, to search all of our vacation. homes.
