Celebrate the Holidays at a Vacation Rental Instead of Home

Celebrate the Holidays at a Vacation Rental Instead of Home

More and more Americans are moving toward gifting experiences and memories rather than material things at the holidays. The value of time spent together is far more than most gifts, and one great way to give the entire family an intangible and invaluable holiday present is to celebrate at a vacation rental together.

If you are considering a holiday getaway this year, we have some tips to help. First of all, consider one of our luxury vacation rentals. We have two that are ideally suited to family celebrations, with plenty of space to relax and give everyone their own space.

Keep Traditions Alive

When you celebrate the holidays in a new place, make sure to keep some of your favorite traditions alive. It’s fun an exciting to mix things up, but consider keeping some of your favorite activities to have that festive and nostalgic experience.

Here are some ideas to help keep traditions alive:

  • Make your favorite holiday meal, just like you do at home. Both of our luxury rentals have beautiful kitchen spaces with everything you need to prepare your favorite foods.
  • Bring some gifts and exchange them the way you normally do at the holidays. While you may opt for more experiences as gifts this year, it can be fun to still wrap a few and bring them along. Maybe you have a tradition of opening a board game together or exchanging Christmas ornaments; there’s no reason you can’t carry it on in your vacation rental.
  • If you have a favorite holiday movie, no need to miss out! With streaming services at both of our rentals, as well as indoor and outdoor TVs and even a movie theater at the Brooklyn Penthouse, you can have the best holiday movie night yet.

Try Something New

You never know when your new favorite tradition is going to be discovered. Maybe just taking a trip in and of itself is that something new you and your family will love, or maybe you will enjoy mixing up the traditional festivities with something unique to your location. Here are some ideas:

  • Check out local cuisine
  • Take a boat out on Lake Havasu for a sunset cruise or a fishing trip
  • Plan a hike
  • Book a tee time at one of Indio’s premier golf courses
  • Explore local holiday events and activities
