Perhaps the number one accommodation choice in Tofino is the vacation rental – a huge market this day and age thanks to sites like Airbnb and VRBO. What’s all the hype about over this type of accommodation? Check out the list below to find out.
Downtown, oceanfront, ritzy, cozy, interactive, private… There are so many options, and so many combinations of those options available in a vacation rental. You can truly pick and choose based on your desires and book the perfect home that caters to your type of vacation.
Your Home Away From Home
Rather than a stuffy hotel room with weird décor and a lobby area that no one really sits in, you can have a master bedroom with an ensuite, paired with a comfortable living room you actually want to sit in and enjoy. It truly is your home away from home.
Speaking of home, another main feature for vacation rentals is the opportunity to cook! Depending on the place you choose, you could have a fully stocked kitchen, meaning you can cook all your favourite meals when you’re tired of eating at restaurants. Not to mention, you’ll have a fridge for restaurant leftovers when you do go out.
Depending on what you choose, a vacation rental can be cheaper than a hotel, or cost the same, but provide way more value for your dollar. While there can be some hidden fees like processing fees and cleaning fees, it usually works out to be a better bet for your wallet. Plus, if you do have a kitchen, you’ll be saving money on food.
Choose your Amenities
You’re in control of what makes the perfect vacation home. If you want heated floors, find that. If you want a balcony, you can have it. Dishwasher? Washing machine and drier? Check and check.
Pick your Dream
Always wanted a swanky loft? Live in it for the weekend! What about that dream home with the big picture windows and ocean view? Vacation rentals let you have that home and life you’ve always wanted, without feeling out of place, or like you’re intruding.
After a big adventure, it can be exhausting to navigate the lobby, wait for the elevator and try to relax in your room, which is also your living room, kitchen and bathroom. Putting your feet up in your own living room next to the fire where no one will be walking by bumping you with luggage, and the constant ringing of the elevator is heaven.
Interactive or Not
Some home owners prefer to walk you in, introduce themselves, show you around and give you all the tips and hints they have about the town. Others just give you a door code and hope you read the welcome manual printed out on the coffee table. For social travelers, the host that wants to show you everything and be your latest friend is perfect. If you want a romantic, secluded escape, or a chance to refresh and recharge alone then the owner that lives somewhere else and is available by messenger if you need them is perfect. Your experience can be what you want.
So, there it is, some of the reasons why vacation rentals are becoming a favourite choice when it comes to accommodation. Wanting to find a dream vacation rental of your own? Check out www.vancouverislandvr.com. You can also check out www.tofino-info.com/accommodation-tofino/ for more options!
