San Francisco, California (NAPSI) - It’s not always where you’re going but who’s by your side that can create some of your best vacation memories. According to a recent PhoCusWright study, 70 percent of travelers said vacations are more about spending time with the people they care about rather than the destination.

That said, the place you stay at can make a difference in the quality of time you get to spend with friends and family. You can reconnect in spacious and comfortable accommodations with a vacation rental. Unlike hotels, these come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from beach homes to villas to houseboats. They can fit large groups opting to stay together and share vacation costs, and small parties looking for a more intimate vacation.

Vacation Rental Benefits

• Room for everyone to enjoy. Travelers can spread out, relax and cherish time together in roomy common living areas as well as retreat to private bedrooms, many of which have individual televisions. Plus, in a vacation rental, you’ll likely have more than one bathroom.

• Homelike amenities. Familiar conveniences such as in-unit washers and dryers can make packing for vacation easier, lighter and less time consuming. Simpler packing can translate to less stress throughout the vacation and the possibility of saving money on airline baggage charges.

• Fully equipped kitchens. These can also cut costs since you can prepare and enjoy a home-made meal together in the rental instead of dining out. Eating in can also be the healthier option, according to recent studies.

• More value for your money. With an average size of 1,850 square feet, vacation rentals are more than five times as large as the average hotel room, so you get more space for the money. What’s more, the average rental costs less: $68.51 per bedroom compared to the average hotel room price of $106.08.
