Corporate Housing BlogTravel Tips › Benefits of an Extended Stay for Your Next Vacation

Even with homesharing apps and hotels as popular and tried-and-true options for an extended stay, there are still instances a short-term rental may be more viable. After all, you’ve most likely have used them for work, whether on a business trip or transitioning to a new city.

If you are not already familiar with extended stays, short-term rentals, or corporate housing, these options are great for when you are going out of town for the holidays, a long summer stay, a reunion, or in cases of family emergencies. There are economic reasons you may want to look into booking your family’s extended stay with a more comfortable short-time rental along with a few other perks. You’ve worked hard, now it’s time to play hard!

Cost

Although pricey, hotels can be fun; fresh daily towels, pools, gyms, turn-down service, room service! But after about a week, for the average family size, a hotel stay can break the bank. Plus, you may be tempted to eat out more and go for unhealthier food options. Extended stays can offer the same novelty of a hotel at a fraction of the price – about 3% to 50% less – but they can also provide the comfort of being at home with more space, furnished rooms, a full kitchen, and private amenities and appliances. Short-term rentals like extended stays or corporate housing cater to traveling business people, which means all the inclusions are top notch, but often underused. This means property managers are often looking to rent out these apartments throughout the year.

Location

Most hotels have prime real estate, but again, costs can be high. And with homesharing apps, it may be difficult to find a home that can be both close to attractions and can hold all your family members. Most extended stays, often used by companies for temporary housing of employees and clients, are also located in desirable locations that are close to attractions, shopping, entertainment, and restaurants. This allows you to still be in the center of it all and be in a safe location.

Availability

Unfortunately, family emergencies occur, double bookings happen, or other incidents come up. Whether you need to provide healthcare assistance to a loved one or have last-minute changes to your itinerary, you have a better chance at finding vacancy with an extended stay… and again, at a better price. Yes, there are last-minute hotel sites that provide this service, but often include hidden fees and the amenities may not be ideal. With a short-term rental, the most you or your family may have to worry about are your options!

Familiarity

You may have used an extended stay or corporate housing before, or you may be familiar with the company providing the lodging. Whatever the case, this can greatly diminish stress for you and your family when traveling. With an extended stay or short-term rental, your family can stay in a fully functional and comfortable home with all you’ll need on a daily basis while enjoying your vacation at the same time. This allows for more quality family time to create memories.

Options

If you’re thinking about investing in a timeshare, extended stays give you the option to try out the location you’re interested in to see if it is an area you’d like to visit every year.
