The five college girls have not been together for about five years. They have seen each other in pairs, but their schedules have just not allowed them to get together as a group. this spring, however, it is going to happen. It is hard to believe, but the first of the group who graduated from college in 1985 is retiring. After teaching nonstop since that graduation date, the classmate from Kansas has finally achieved Rule 85, the magic number when the number of years you have taught and your age reach 80 and you are eligible for full retirement benefits. To celebrate, all five girls are going to get together for the a weekend and share two oceanfront condo rentals.
The group knows that they will spend time in the sun on the beach and that there will be many late night conversations, but the rest of the schedule is pretty open ended. There is a slight chance that a couple of the husbands will be able to join, so they will have two oceanfront condo rentals that can adjoin in case that happens, but for the most part it is looking like a girls only weekend. Calling it by the newest popular term Celebration Vacation, the girls plan to celebrate the first in their group to wrap up her full time job and move into retirement.
Oceanfront Condos Allow for Privacy and Value
One of the main reasons that condo vacation rentals work better for travel than hotel is that these larger spaces provide for more privacy. In fact, 90% of leisure travelers indicate that privacy is the main reason that they like vacation condo rentals rather than hotel rooms. Private entrances and individual rooms with bathrooms allow leisure travelers to enjoy time together, but still have plenty of quiet, private space when needed.
In addition to being private, beach rentals are often more affordable. Finding a traditional hotel room that could fit three to four adults is very expensive. Oceanfront condo rentals, on the other hand, come with an affordable rate perfect for groups who want to stay for a long weekend or for several days. The average daily rate for a room with the U.S. hotel industry cost $120.01 in the year 2015. Sharing a condo with several people allows them to pool their money and get a far more affordable space.
Oceanfront Condo Rentals Also Provide Full Kitchens and Other Amenities
Nearly 87% of leisure travelers indicate that they would rather rent condos over hotel rooms because of the kitchen space. Especially if your vacation is going to be for a week or more, eating out can get very expensive, not to mention time consuming. Who wants to spend more than an hour for a lunch that includes a long wait for a table when you could be at the beach? Evening reservations can take even longer at some of the most popular restaurants. And while eating out once or twice can be fun, many travelers enjoy the experience of having some home cooked favorites that they prepare together.
In addition to the kitchens, 84% of leisure travelers indicate that they like condos because of all of the other available amenities. For example, a long week at the beach is easier to pack for if you know that you will be staying in a condo with a washer and a dryer. The addition of large screen televisions and video systems that often come with a wide selection of movies are also a nice touch. Additionally, 81% of leisure travelers say that they simply enjoy the amount of space a condo provides as compared to a hotel.
More than 75% of leisure trips in America are taken for vacation purposes. Do you have an upcoming one planned? For groups of travelers, whether they be college friends or relatives, a shared beachfront condo might be the perfect solution. Large condo spaces allow friends and families to share a common space, but still have access to private rooms.
Who knows? You might even feel like you are back in college when you crawl out of your bed and sit around having coffee in your pajamas with your old, some even retired, roommates.
