Vacation Rentals vs. Hotels: Where is the Romance?

Imagine the setting sun’s rays streaming through your balcony window. Whether alone, or with that special someone, you step outside to feel a warm, island breeze, untouched by winter. You can look out over the long sandy beaches between you and the Gulf that stretches out to the horizon and beyond.

Sharing a setting like this with someone special has all the makings of a romantic getaway. Marco Island is a picturesque location on Florida’s Gulf coast featuring warm waters, stunning sunsets, and near immunity to winter temperatures. Quick getaways to a location like this must only be accessible by paying expensive resort prices, right? Not necessarily.

Why Marco Island?

  Marco Island is perfect for a quick getaway when you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city or when you get sick of snow and chilling weather. It provides more sights, locations, and attractions than just the long stretches of sandy white beaches. Marco Island offers fine dining, shopping, beautiful parks, museums, theaters, sunsets, and more.

Experience the beauty of Everglades National Park, the largest tropical wilderness and home to a vast ecosystem of plants and wildlife.

Hotels are Pricey and Busy

  Hotels and resorts can have their charm but they often become more expensive than they’re worth.  The price per night, especially in beautiful beach side locales, is typically high.  Adding expenses such as eating out every night, in-room entertainment and other miscellaneous items (valet, fees, laundry service), further inflates the cost.

Vacation rentals are often comparable to hotel prices, if not cheaper, but you can also skip out on other costs by having your own kitchen, washer, dryer, beach towels, chairs, and many other amenities not normally found in a hotel room, which may not be included in the price of your stay.

If you’d like to turn your romantic getaway into a couple’s retreat, or group get-a-way, vacation rentals also tend to offer more space than a typical hotel room. Marco Island is home to condominiums that can sleep anywhere between 4 and 7 people, as well as houses that can sleep up to 10 people, making your paradise vacation stay more than cost efficient.
