3 MORE Things You Should Look for in a Wine Country Vacation Rental

In the Wine Country, vacation rentals are now considerably more popular than hotel rooms, given the multitude of benefits that accompany them. Traveling in large groups of friends or family, people look for temporary living where they can enjoy their trip to the fullest.

With matchless privacy and personal space options, a vacation rental can give you the perfect value for your money. The big question is: How do you pick one vacation home out of the rest? It comes down to what exactly you are looking for. Check out one of our earlier posts for detailed tips about CHOOSING THE RIGHT VACATION RENTAL. Here are a few more considerations to keep in mind to help you determine whether a rental is the ideal one for you.

Ready for a vacation rental?

1. Location

No one disagrees that the landscape of the Wine Country is stunning. With gently rolling hills, beautiful rivers, ocean shores, and fecund valleys, the Wine Country has a treasure of great locations where you can find your perfect vacation home. But when it comes to picking out the right vacation rental for you, consider whether you want to be close in to one of the area’s charming towns. Is it important to be able to walk to the center of town, with restaurants, boutiques, and galleries? Or would you prefer to be away from neighbors and feel like you have the world to yourself? The ideal vacation rental home is in the Wine Country, but imagine more specifically just what the locale looks like. See what it is that will make you happy.

2. Style

Wouldn’t you check out the theme of a hotel before you stay there? Similarly, check to see if the company you are choosing offers various styles in their vacation homes. Some places may be no-fuss rustic, while others are pristine luxury. Are you into stylish modern or would a comfy cottage better suit you and your group. The style will set the right mood in your Wine Country vacation. Don’t hesitate to be picky with your vacation home’s exterior and interior options!

3. Extras

Some vacation rental agencies offer comprehensive concierge services. These include shopping, transportation, spa services, and star-chef meals. The Wine Stay has a complete concierge menu, which also includes guided wine tasting tours and on-site massage. We want to make your vacation in Sonoma Valley or Napa Valley a one-of-a-kind experience. We know the more extras available to you, the more comfortable your vacation becomes.

Take your time to find a vacation home. Make sure the company who manages the rental home has a five-star reputation. Look closely at reviews. Proceed once you are sure all factors are up to your standards so that you can enjoy your precious vacation days to the fullest!
