During our trip to Japan last December, we were invited to stay at some of the vacation rentals from HomeAway. I have earlier blogged about the 3 homes we stayed in, and in this post I am going to share with your more about what you can find on HomeAway and how to use their website.
HomeAway specialises in vacation rentals that offer you, as their name suggests, a home away from home. They are particularly great for families who need more space and amenities such as kitchenette and washers.
Their selection of vacation rentals range from simple apartments with all the basic amenities you can find in a home, to exotic bucket-list-worthy stays like this Treehouse in Thailand.
They have vacation rentals that can accommodate anywhere from 1 to more than 10 people. Imagine going to Bali with your extended family and booking an entire villa!
You can also choose to experience local history and culture by staying in historic and traditional homes.
Whether you are on a city break or resort getaway, there is an amazing range of vacation rentals to choose from on HomeAway!
Features of Homeaway Website
In the video below, I will show you some of the features of the super user-friendly Homeaway website:
Note on Booking for children
In the above video, I showed you that I entered 4 guests for our family of 2 adults and 2 children. When you contact hosts, do check with them if they are able to give you discounted rates for children. Out of the 3 apartments I booked, one of them charged for 4 guests, one of them charged the kids half-price and one of them did not charge for kids.
On the hosts’ end, they are able to adjust the pricing before you confirm your booking, so do remember to negotiate for discounts when travelling with children.
