Beach House Rentals - Peace at the Beach

By: Saramendez
Oregon is unique. There are many places to vacation for all types of people. You may choose to vacation at Sunriver, Bend, Mt Hood, Portland or as many do, at the beach. The Oregon beach offers many different accommodations and activities as well as beautiful scenery. Taking a vacation is a common practice for most families. Often the vacation is for an anniversary, summer break or a three day weekend. As a smart consumer I am sure you are always looking for the best value for the dollar.

First you need to decide what criteria you will base your decision on. Maybe your hotel must be a beach front, have a continental breakfast, economical or simply a quiet place to rest your head. Unfortunately what you want and what are can get are two different things.

Say you want an ocean view or beach front, and hey why not you are at the beach no one wants to look at a parking lot first thing in the morning. Most beach front or ocean view hotel rooms in Lincoln City, a popular vacation spot, range from $80.00 to $200.00 a night before taxes and other fees, varying on the weekend. Typically the search ends here, it is expensive unless you don't want a beach view.

If you decide to keep looking you will find most hotels that are not ocean view still range in prices from $50.00 to $100.00 in Lincoln City, and then they try to lure you with the always questionable continental breakfast. Typically the continental breakfast is simply coffee, orange juice and some sort of pastry such as a donut. I don't know about you a single donut for breakfast isn't going to do much for me except ruin my diet.

Getting a good night sleep is always important while on vacation. Unlike beach front views and a donut, a quiet hotel is something they can not guarantee. Other guests can be loud simply by taking the elevator up or getting a soda, you hear doors slamming and talking all night long. I do not remember a time I was ever able to get a good night sleep in the hotel. Forget sleeping in, house keeping is usually there right at ten and check out is eleven. This to me is anything but relaxing.

Vacation homes are a unique fun way to enjoy your vacation. A vacation rental home provides many things a hotel can not. You are able to prepare all of your own meals, and save some money by not eating out, and you have options other than a donut. You know your sleep will not be disturbed from other guests, house keeping will not beat down your door early in the morning and you may come and go as you please. You are able to spend quality time with your family and have more meaningful candid moments together. You can enjoy ocean views and relax feeling no pressure to go anywhere or do anything quickly. Best of all, if you have a large group or others who want to tag along, a vacation home can be very inexpensive if you split the cost.

Regardless of your price range, you should be able to find something within your budget and criteria for a vacation home. Some beach front vacation homes are around $100.00 per night and can range up to $250.00 a night. The benefits of a vacation home far out weigh those of a hotel, this much is clear. Paying a little extra money might be worth it if it means you will have more time and less pressure while spending time with the ones you love the most. Do your research and decide for yourself, but remember people don't often say they went to a hotel and had a fabulous, relaxing time, but they do say that about a vacation home.
