I love staying at hotels! A freshly made bed, housekeeping and room service! And I especially love the little chocolates left on my pillow. But I’m finding that no matter how nice the room is, hotels just don’t cut it when traveling with a child. No kitchen sink for washing those dirty bottles or sippy cups, no stove for whipping up a quick meal or microwave for warming up said (leftover) meals, or refrigerators for keeping milk or snacks fresh. You get the point.
My husband and I are huge fans of renting homes from sites like VRBO and Airbnb. Most recently we went to Capitola with my in-laws and rented a house just a 5-minute walk to the beach. It was amazing!
We just rented this one in Anaheim for a family vacation. My brother promised my niece and nephew a trip to Disneyland so we’re all going along for the adventure. I don’t think I visited Disneyland until I was 17 years old and Reese gets to visit before her 2nd birthday.
So back to the house we’ll be staying in. It has 5 bedrooms, a deck and a pool! It has a Disney theme so I know the kids will love! To top it off, the house is toddler friendly and equipped with a pack’n play and high chair, children’s plates, books and toys. Finally, when we did the math, it’s much less expensive per person to rent a house than to rent hotel rooms.
Anyone have experience using VRBO or Airbnb?
