Today’s busy conventioneers are discovering an alternative to staying in motels and even pricier hotels. While traditional hotels/motels offer nice rooms and some amenities, they lack the personal charm and at-home feeling of a vacation home. Many of these large single-family homes combine both luxury and close-in convenience today’s conventioneers are looking for. They also allow guests to enjoy things one simply can’t find in a hotel/motel.
Location, Location, Location
As an example, some of these homes situated in the heart of Anaheim are conveniently located just minutes from Anaheim Convention Center. This is one attribute busy conventioneers can really appreciate, for it allows guests close proximity to where they need to be on a daily basis. It also enables small business groups/teams to stay in one residence-instead of being scattered across various hotel/motel suites or even different hotels. A home in Anaheim also means guests are just minutes away from the resort mecca that includes Disneyland’s two theme parks-Disneyland and Disneyland Adventure-plus Downtown Anaheim, Knott’s Berry Farm, and the many shops and restaurants of the Anaheim Resort. Yet many such homes, like those in Anaheim, will be situated in quiet neighborhoods, a welcome contrast to busy hotels/motels that are often located on major noisy streets.
Amenities Inside and Out
Most vacation homes have four and five bedrooms with 2.5 to 3 bathrooms. And unlike many hotel rooms, they typically feature gourmet kitchens, each with custom cabinets, stainless steel appliances, granite counters and breakfast bars. The kitchens generally have pots, pans, bakeware, cooking utensils, dishes, flatware, even kitchen towels and paper towels-just like a regular home. Many homes also include elegantly designed living areas with big screen smart-TVs, video game consoles, Internet access, board games, poker and foosball tables. Some homes will have a fireplace and air conditioning to ensure year-around comfort. Also included are a washing machine and dryer for in-home convenience.
Like a hotel, vacation homes will have an in-ground, private, gated pool and a relaxing spa or hot tub. But unlike a hotel/motel, these areas will be populated with only people from one’s team or group-for maximum privacy. Guests staying at a hotel/motel generally don’t have access to a barbecue. Vacation homes, on the other hand, allow guests to BBQ store-bought steaks, shrimp or ribs and enjoy a delicious meal on the patio overlooking a pool/spa. These homes usually include a large outdoor dining table and chairs. Finally, many such homes offer optional housekeeping services-just like a pricey hotel.
