What comes to your mind when you imagine a vacation? A new place, moments captured on the journey, the unknown adventures that await you; and if you are with your family then spending a joyous getaway with the loved ones.
While you make your plans, your mind prepares a checklist and you will always find accommodation arrangements on top of that list; from here onwards, the actual hustle of planning the vacation begins.
You browse your way through affordable packages, browse for the few which offer all amenities that you or your family might need and then you settle for a hotel which offers you a compromise of both the worlds of affordability and comfort.
That’s the 90s style of travel. Recently, there is another form of accommodation arrangement that has come into the picture and has spread all over the globe – Holiday Homes.
Your most precious place in this whole world is your Home; then why not continue with that feeling even when you travel. A Holiday Home offers the magnitude of plus points over any hotels along with the warmth of the homely feeling. While opting for a Holiday Home you never actually give up on any of the luxuries even while traveling.
Luxury of freedom: Your travel, Your way

Luxury of affordability: Traveler’s value for money
Let’s agree on the fact that traveling is a bit of an expensive affair and it becomes hefty on your pocket when you travel with your whole family. In such situations, the first thing that faces the blow of cost cutting is your accommodation.
You choose that budget hotel knowing the fact that you might have to give up on few comforts or deal with few hurdles.

Additionally, the primary merit of choosing a HomeAway Holiday Home unveils itself when you book a luxurious Villa or a spacious property on your group travel.
For an instance, let’s assume you book this fabulous 3 Bedroom Holiday Home with a Private Pool for a group travel of 5 family members at the INR 5,300 price tag. Now, just do the math, and you’ll realize that it costs you only INR 1060 per pax while making no compromise on luxury.
In the same instance, if you’d book a hotel, you may not get so much space and comfort and also end up spending more. The conventional one room protocol of the hotel limits you in many aspects when you are on a family trip or group vacation.
Luxury of a group getaway: The more is always merrier
We’ve seen people struggling with the thought of taking the whole family together for a vacation. People with large or extended families face this dilemma often; because frankly, it’s expensive and uncomfortable to travel with the bunch.
Hotels usually don’t help much either, because you know you’d have to make your whole family stay in different distant rooms and the only time they would be all together, would be when everyone goes out at the same time.
Let’s change that with Holiday Homes! When you book a Holiday Home, the price of the stay drastically reduces when you factor in more people.
You get the whole space to yourself where all your family members have their comfy rooms, plus you can choose from amenities like additional spaces, living rooms, pools, family kitchen, direct beach access etc.
On family holidays, choosing a Holiday Home for your accommodation is a no-brainer as even the kids love them. Kids get all the space in the world to enjoy their vacation and adults get to spend more time with each other without the restrictions of space, time or rules.
Let’s browse a few group favored Holiday Homes:
Luxury of space: Live without the four walls boundary
The very basic difference between a commercial establishment like a Hotel and a Holiday Home is the reason behind its structure.
Hotels are built to accommodate maximum possible guests at a time and to also ensure that every guest gets the same flavor of customer servicing and treatment. Whereas Holiday Homes are built with comfort as the first factor in mind.
They are built to bring people close and provide them space at the same time. The locality of a Holiday Home is also chosen in the same way – to make the family feel comfortable.
While choosing a Holiday Home over Hotel, you choose comfort and space over a generic commercial setup. You are never confined between the four walls of discipline and you can have the luxury of togetherness and freedom at the same time.
People traveling in groups can relate to this even more, where they have to book separate distant rooms at an affordable package and still get no space to come together for spending time together unless they go out. At Holiday Homes, you can even organize your party in the living space or enjoy the evening by the private pool.

Luxury of exploring: The more you meet, The more you experience
What is the value of travel if you don’t experience the culture, the people and the merits of the place?
With the fresh homely warmth, Holiday Homes also offer you the opportunity to actually interact with the native people and get to know their culture first hand. Most hosts, if you are keen, would be open to meet you once you check-in to offer friendly tips and advice to make the most of your stay in their city.
Believe the fact, once you experience a Holiday Home stay, you’d never go back to the guided city tours or guided cultural walks. Your guides would be the local people who actually live around you.
The best part about traveling is experiencing what you can’t at your native place and there is certainly no better way to take full advantage of this, but booking a Holiday Home on your next stay.
The friendly neighborhood of your Holiday Home will make you fall in love with the concept and is also a smart choice as the locals know the best of what to do and where to visit whilst on your trip. You get tips straight from the people who live there and get to make friends with them.

Luxury of romance: Being with the one, without the hustle
Imagine you take a romantic getaway where you need to check in at a precise time and spend the whole day roaming the city, because you know there are less interesting things to do between those four walls of your hotel room.
You wander the city, indulge in all the sightseeing, visit the market and in the midst of this hustle, you try and sneak a few moments of togetherness whenever you can. Not the ideal romantic getaway you had imagined, is it?
To top it all, once you are back at your luxurious 5 star hotel, be prepared to share the pool with scores of other couples or even families, jostling for sun loungers and even the attention of the staff to bring you your drink.
Holiday Homes offer you a different dimension of togetherness and are actually perfect for the likes of you, who want to take a pause from all the hustle happening around, and just spend time with each other.
From romantic jacuzzi options to infinity pools; from yacht stays to the beach facing view – Holiday Homes provide the abundance of moments where you can just forget everything and get lost in each other.
To sweeten the deal, many packages offer Holiday Homes with the honeymoon package where you get to stay in solace at your own Holiday Home and yet take part in different couple activities.
Tell us if any hotel’s honeymoon suite still sounds a better deal rather than spending the night with your love interest lying flat on the beach in the night, sipping champagne and counting stars; just a few feet away from your Holiday Home.
Planning the getaway is probably the only stressful activity here, let’s browse below to see what catches your fancy(by the way, these are just a few select options, there are thousands more on www.homeaway.co.in ):
