PARSIPPANY, NJ, Jul 21, 2014 (Marketwired via COMTEX) -- In celebration of National Vacation Rental Month, Wyndham Vacation Rentals, the world's largest professionally managed vacation rental business and part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands /quotes/zigman/426560/delayed/quotes/nls/wyn WYN +1.01% , is sharing seven reasons why vacation rentals offer travelers a better way to get away. Celebrated each July, the most popular month for vacation rental stays, National Vacation Rental Month recognizes the many benefits of this accommodation option, from more space and greater value to increased privacy and in-home amenities. "What better time than National Vacation Rental Month to highlight the vacation rental experience," said Bob Milne, president, Wyndham Vacation Rentals North America. "Recent studies show that vacation rentals give guests more for their money by letting them eat in, pack less, and spread out, all while enjoying a relaxing vacation with family and friends. It's this total package that allows for a truly memorable time. With our National Vacation Rental Month deals, travelers still have time to experience the benefits first-hand this summer and save on stays in some of the country's top destinations." Wyndham Vacation Rentals highlights the following seven benefits of staying in a vacation rental:
1. Vacation rentals give travelers more for their money. The average price
per bedroom per day of a vacation rental is only $69 USD, vs. the
$112.45 USD average for a hotel room. In addition, vacation rentals
offer an average of 2.7 bedrooms, making them a great option for
families and larger groups looking to stay together under one roof and
share vacation costs.
2. Vacation rentals provide more vacation space. The average square footage
of a vacation rental is 1,850, whereas hotels only average 325, giving
guests extra space to spread out. Eighty-one percent of guests stay in a
vacation rental for more living space.
3. Vacation rentals offer fully-equipped kitchens. Eating out on vacation
can add up quickly, both in calories and costs. Most vacation rentals
include fully-equipped kitchens, allowing guests to prepare some meals
themselves. Dining in can save guests up to 75 percent and help cut
calories by 50 percent.
4. Vacation rentals save time with multiple bathrooms. Eighty-two percent
of the vacation rentals that Wyndham Vacation Rentals manages have two
or more bathrooms. Since Americans on average spend 33 minutes in the
bathroom each day, this benefit can save families valuable time and
stress while on vacation.
5. Vacation rentals help cut down on baggage. The average price for one
checked bag on a roundtrip flight is $46.42 USD, making the decision of
what to pack for vacation an important one. Many vacation rentals offer
in-unit washers/dryers, helping guests pack less and save on baggage
fees or room in the car. Forty-two percent of travelers choose vacation
rentals for this convenient amenity.
6. Vacation rentals offer pet-friendly travel options. Each year,
approximately 29 million people travel with their pets, making pet-
friendly accommodations an important travel option. With many of the
advantages of home like more space and privacy, vacation rentals can
help maintain some of the familiarity and routine that some pets crave.
Many even offer private outdoor space like decks and fenced-in back-
7. Vacation rentals give travelers the comforts of home. From the in-home
amenities, like kitchens and washers/dryers, to the extra space and
privacy, vacation rentals can help travelers feel at home on vacation.
In fact, three in five travelers choose vacation rentals for the home-

We would like to extend our appreciation for the extraordinary work in assisting us in buying our home on the Outer Banks. Having you on our side made the process flow smoothly. Your expertise, local connections and communication skills were excellent. Any questions we presented to you were answered and solved immediately. We could always count on you making calls on your cell phone or tapping on your lap top. For instance, time was getting close to the closing date and we had problems getting flood insurance and within 20 minutes you made some calls and we finally had flood insurance. The type of speed and service that you provided enabled us to breathe easier.
Thank you for your service. We could not have found a better realtor.
