As we carefully emerge from quarantine and crane our necks back into the world, we’ll find a lot has changed during this forced hibernation.
Like the way we shop. The way we dine, learn, and interact.
Maybe the way we vacation, too. Vacation rentals are becoming increasingly popular as travelers start to recognize how safe and secure private homes, condos, and apartments are.
Travel is Still a Priority
While what we used to take for granted has changed, much remains the same. As human beings, we want to be seen, be heard, be understood. We want new places and new experiences. To see something different out the window.
We still want to travel. And we will. We’re already starting to.
But as with so many other aspects of society, travel will not look the same. For the foreseeable future, we’re running a little nervous. We don’t want to be around too many people, knowing we’re just safer with our known and trusted “quaranteam”.
We don’t want to crowd into hotel lobbies. And we definitely don’t want to swim in a pool with others or use the same exercise equipment. Even if in-house dining were an option, we’re still pretty leery of that, too.
So, what do we do? How can we still enjoy a safe getaway?
Hotel Rooms vs. Vacation Rentals
Well, let’s consider our options.
How about hotel rooms? Have they been sanitized properly? Have the bed covers been washed between guests? Are the carpets clean? Have rooms been left empty for the recommended 3 days between guests?
The truth is, we just don’t know. And that’s a scary question mark.
Now let’s consider vacation rentals. They provide a far safer, far more peaceful experience for those groups and families who decide to get away.
There’s no lobby to check in to. Most homes have switched to keyless entry, so no keys to fumble with. No lobbies or common hallways to navigate. And no shared amenities. You share your property amenities only with the people you’re vacationing with.
So, no one you don’t know in your pool or hot tub. No other sweaty hands on your exercise equipment. No one in your space at the breakfast table or cocktail bar.
You’ll enjoy as much isolation you want. You have total control when you stay at a vacation rental. And, with JZ Vacation Rentals, you can be assured that not only will your property be thoroughly cleaned, it will also be disinfected and sanitized to EPA guidelines.

Vacation Rentals as an Easy Choice
Moving forward from this pandemic health crisis, vacation rentals will be the clear accommodations of choice. Not only do they offer a safe experience, guests have ultimate control over their activities and environment.
As guests begin to understand that anyone can enjoy the benefits of a private vacation rental, we expect to see high demand for this travel option. Amenities such as a living room and full kitchen are very appealing, particularly since they usually cost the same or even less than a hotel or resort!
Travelers will begin to understand that vacation rentals check off all the boxes – they are safe, secure, and economical. Best of all, they offer something no cookie-cutter hotel or insulated resort room can – an authentic “locals” experience.
Vacation rentals provide a true feel of the area you’ve chosen and you’ll get to live, for the duration of your vacation, like the locals do. You’ll be on the inside looking out, instead of well, you know…
JZ Vacation Rentals is excited to help you find the perfect property for you and your party!
