Why stay in a holiday home?

  • Experience living like a local: Often tucked into apartment blocks or neighbourhoods, you can experience what it's like to live in a city as a local rather than staying in a big city hotel.
  • Access to extra amenities: Being homes, most holiday houses come equipped with full kitchens, private bathrooms and often extra perks like jacuzzis, pools, BBQs, private courtyards/gardens and more.
  • Pet-friendly options: Most holiday-home sites offer the option to filter results for pet-friendly options, and if you book a house, unlike a hotel room, your pets will have an outdoor space to run around.
  • Avoid crowded hotels: If you're looking for a quieter stay or somewhere with fewer people, you can avoid other guests, cleaners and staff by booking a private stay.
  • Accommodates larger groups: While most hotel rooms can only accommodate two to four guests, depending on the size of the house, holiday homes can be an ideal option for larger groups.
  • Remote stays: Ideal for an escape from the city, you can book a stay at a private property for that get-away-from-it-all feeling. Some homes offer acres and acres of private space.
