Holiday Home Rentals – Vacasa
As I recently mentioned, we decided to spend a family holiday together away from home last year. We have a large extended family so it’s challenging to find a place to stay when we travel together.
This past Christmas, we found the most perfect home-away-from-home for our family holiday! I wanted to share our experience and the house that we chose from Vacasa. Today, Vacasa manages more than 12,000 vacation rentals across 28 U.S. states and 16 countries.

Holiday Home Rentals – Check In
In addition to the ease of choosing and renting the house online, check-in with Vacasa was just as simple. Once the rental contract was signed and the house was rented, I was sent the check-in info by email. It covered everything I’d need to know about the house (Wi-Fi, keys, codes, etc). There was a key to the front door in a lockbox outside. When we arrived in the middle of the night, I was able to get into the house immediately. I loved not having to find a rental office or go out of our way late at night. It was nice after that long drive to be able to easily get keys to the house. And once we were in the house, the front table had enough sets of keys for each family and garage door openers for each car. It already felt a bit like we were home.
And the house.
Oh I love this house.
Holiday Home Rentals – The Summer Breeze Villa
This house was absolutely stunning. Every single room was designed and decorated beautifully with an impressive attention to detail. The rooms were all large and open, with plenty of room for everyone in our large group to spread out and relax comfortably.
It was the perfect home-away-from-home for our family holiday celebration!
The bedrooms were all so pretty that it was difficult to choose which one we wanted to stay in before the others arrived. There were two enormous master suites with private verandas, as well as six other beautiful bedroom and bathroom combos that had all had amazing views and plenty of room for everyone.
One of our favorite areas of the house was the massive living and dining area. For the first time ever, we were staying in a home that had enough room for every single adult and child to hang out together.
There was even enough room for the entire family to eat at once! The kids all sat at the seven seats along the enormous, beautiful island and the adults all enjoyed eating together at the dining table for ten.
We made almost every single meal in the vacation home and had every single dish, pot, pan, or cooking tool that we needed. I’ve never stayed in such a well-stocked home ever before. It was really impressive.
After dinner, when the adults relaxed in the upstairs living area, the kids had their own fun in the downstairs game room. They had couches and chairs to relax and watch a movie on, a table to sit at and play games or do puzzles, and even some cozy lounge chairs to curl up on with a book from the stocked bookcase. It was perfect!
Holiday Home Rentals – Activities
Because all of our kids, nieces, and nephews were spending the week with us, we wanted a house that had fun activities for children. In addition to the game room stocked with games, books, and puzzles, the house we chose had a huge, private heated pool. There were floats to relax on, deck chairs to hang out on, underwater games for the kids, and even big, fluffy beach towels for us to use.
When everyone wanted to head down to the beach, we packed up food, drinks, books, and sports equipment to play with. The house had two beach carts, great backpack chairs, and even beach toys and games. We rolled everything out to the beach and had a wonderful time enjoying the ocean while the adults chatted and the kids played.
I have to say that every single thing – from the first time I started searching for a home on their website until we packed up the car and drove away – was truly perfect. There wasn’t a thing that we wanted that the house lacked, and we were tickled quite a few times by how many pleasant surprises the house did have.
Holiday Home Rentals – Vacasa Service
Also, the team members at Vacasa were always prompt, pleasant, professional, and attentive. The first day we arrived, I called about the WiFi password and the heated pool. I was immediately able to speak to someone local who was familiar with the house and with our account. Both issues were handled right away (and neither were problems – just my misunderstanding of how they worked). I was so impressed!
I can’t remember a vacation rental that I’ve ever had that I was so impressed with. My family members have already talked about renting the same house again next year because it was so perfect.
Everything about the house, the location, and the booking process through Vacasa was wonderful!
