Staying in Guesthouses During Vacations

Sometimes the only way you can enjoy your vacay is to rent a guesthouse. For some, they may have no choice but to do so because they don’t have any local relative to stay with while they’re in the area. Guesthouses are different from hotels in that they lack a full-time staff, although there could be a caretaker.

Most guesthouses are available for rent are owned by families, and some of them live near their guesthouses. Some also buy guesthouses so that they can earn from its rental services — however, those who do make some serious budget planning before they start looking for a property to invest in. Now that we know what guesthouses are, it’s high time to take a look at the benefits of staying in one.

Advantages of Staying in a Guesthouse

Staff Presence Is Limited

I say this is a benefit because sometimes the presence of staff can be annoying. The constant knock on your door could disturb your rest or family activity. For introverts or families that prefer getting things done their way, it’s best if the staff doesn’t always interfere. Once the staff is gone, only then can you enjoy a guesthouse all to your own. Of course, not everyone would see this as an advantage. After all, if there are some repairs needed to be done in, say, the kitchen or bathroom, and the family brought no tools, then they need the staff’s help. If you don’t want distractions, you can always bring your own toolkit when staying inside a guesthouse. Doing so will also give you the responsibility to take care of the residence as if it was your own.

Pets Are Allowed

Another benefit that should be discussed is that guesthouses allow you to bring pets. Some people can’t enjoy their vacations because they worry about their pets, and yet they can’t bring them because only a few hotels let them in. Fortunately, when you stay in a guesthouse, you can let your pet tag along. You won’t have to worry about how they’re doing because they’re with you.

Fun Activities Have No Limit

The last advantage of staying in a guesthouse while on vacation is that you and your family (or friends) can get as loud as you want, especially if the guesthouse is located outdoors and is far from the other houses. You can have unlimited games, perhaps play the guitar and sing songs around a bonfire, drink till you’re so drunk, and so on. There would be limited rules to follow, and most of them are only about keeping the guesthouse clean and as is before you rented.
