A few years ago, my husband and I decided to go on an incredible vacation to Europe. Unfortunately, we didn't know very much about booking hotels, and so we ended up staying in some pretty "interesting" places. When we weren't scared about the other guests, we were worried about taking home bed bugs, and we were surprised about the pricing! After that experience, we decided to research travel accommodations, so that we weren't ever put in that same situation ever again. This blog is a cumulative report of our findings--which is why this website is chock full of information about travel and lodging. Read on to find out more.
One of the more memorable parts of a vacation beach rental is the view that comes with the home. Situated right on the beach, you will enjoy gorgeous views of the ocean. As you browse through vacation beach house rental options, consider house features to get the most out of your vacation.
Check out three vacation beach house rental features that are ideal for gorgeous views during your stay.
1. Bedroom Placement
As you look through home rental listings, check to see if a layout of house is available. Through the blueprint layout, find out how many of the bedrooms face the beach. With a beachfront bedroom, you will wake up each morning and look out the window to enjoy the views of the beach.
The bed may face the window directly so you don't even have to get up to see the views. If the house listing doesn't include a blueprint, then browse through the home's picture gallery. In the bedroom gallery pictures, study the views from the windows and get a pretty good idea of the bedroom placement in the house.
2. Sun Rooms & Screened-In Porches
Weather is unpredictable on any trip you take. Do not let bad weather impact your beach view. A vacation beach house with a sun room or screened-in porch will provide you with clear views of the beach without the weather impact. Inside a sun room, large glass windows offer a clear view to the outside. You don't have to worry about high winds or rain impacting the visit.
Large sun rooms offer an ideal place to eat meals without sand blowing on your food. Many times, you can crack open a window a little to still hear the sound of waves crashing.
3. Balconies and Raised Decks
Enjoy a completely different view of the beach when you rent a house with a balcony or raised deck. The higher view gives you a unique perspective of the beach and allows you to see out further than you could when sitting on the shore.
From a balcony, you can rest, relax, and watch as boats and other watercraft travel through the ocean waters. A raised deck offers more space to entertain, serve meals, and enjoy the night. Many of the homes will come with seating for the areas, but you could also bring your own beach chairs to enjoy the view.
Once you know what to look for, you will find a beach house rental that has one or more of the features listed above.
