Nothing says summer more than the smell of sunscreen and the feel of sand between your toes. This summer, 45% of Americans will take a vacation to unwind and spend time with their families. Oceanfront rentals are the most popular of leisure destinations, and there’s a good reason for that. In addition to being beautiful and relaxing, beach condos also create the best space for quality family bonding.
Here are three reasons to bring your family to the beach this summer
- The Beach has Something for Everyone.
The oceanfront caters to everyone’s vision of a great vacation. Perhaps your ideal day involves iced coffee and a good book. Your teenager wants to juggle a soccer ball and get tan, and your youngest is happiest when she’s digging in the dirt. Good news: the ocean has all of that, and more. Spend the day on the white sandy beach and afterwards, head into town for an afternoon of shopping or dining. In North Myrtle beach alone, there are local tours, water sport rentals, and summer festivals to keep travelers of all ages happy, but your vacation doesn’t need to be 100% planned to be a blast.
- Beach Condos Put You on Your Own Schedule.
Down time at home can quickly fill up with everyday life. A summer get-away needs to be really away from all those household projects that call your attention and the distraction of friends that constantly call to your kids. However, traditional hotel rooms and resorts can come with a schedule of their own–their breakfast hours and shuttle departures wait for no one. In contrast, beach rentals avoid all of these time constraint hazards.
The number one reason travelers choose beach condos over a traditional hotel is the cost, but the second biggest draw is the access condo rentals offer to a full kitchen and luxury amenities. A personal kitchen and plenty of space give you the freedom and flexibility to shape your day –Let the kids wake up whenever they want and eat breakfast in their pajamas. Head to the water once everyone’s dressed and sunscreened and set the day around whatever sea breeze moves you, with no distractions or timetables to worry about.
- Vacation Condo Rentals Give You Privacy and Space.
This is not the vacation where you cram your whole family into one room with two double beds, for that is no vacation at all. Family bonding time also requires some personal space and down time for everyone to recharge.
Oceanfront condos can provide the space for each family member to have their own room. In fact, the spaciousness makes oceanfront condo rentals a popular choice for extended family vacations, where several families can all share a single rental comfortably. The little ones can rest while the big kids play cards or make paper airplanes. Beach condos provide the leisure of a getaway with the luxury of escaping the crowds–both of other tourists and your own relatives. Plus, no need to wait hours for that post-beach shower.
Family bonding time is important because it builds a healthy connection between relatives and improves family communication. Spending quality time together makes a family stronger, and helps children feel safe and secure. It’s important to dedicate time that is family focused, but quality moments can happen in the most mundane ways, when you are prepping dinner or taking an afternoon walk.
Vacation rentals make space for both those lifetime memories–a sunset on the beach and a banana boat ride on the water–and the everyday magic of spending time together–an afternoon nap and flipping pancakes on the griddle. Get away together and then play together, in a way that everyone finds enjoyable and relaxing.
