Your Own Kitchen

What's great about a vacation home is you don't have to rely on a vending machine, or restaurant leftovers heated up in a microwave, when hunger strikes. And you don't have to waste away all your vacation money on food, either.

Instead, cook in a comfortable, fully-stocked, even gourmet kitchen, and bond with the family over dinner - in a spacious dining room or on the patio.

Here's what one traveler had to say about their vacation rental experience:

"Whereas on previous Florida trips we spent a lot of time out and about, at theme parks etc, this time we spent a significant amount of time at the villa. This mainly because it was so spacious, the pool area was magnificent, and the outside bbq was a really special feature that made all the difference, so we ended up spending a lot of time cooking and eating there. Sorry to the local restaurants"
