Comfort: The Premium Price is Right

If you plan to buy or rent a vacation house, comfort should be on top of your priority list. While you are looking at hundreds of properties, the rental or purchase costs should not discourage you to compromise your family’s comfort. After all, a vacation is the right time to deserve relaxation and recreation in style. Even on a short vacation, the lack of comfort can make a big difference in your overall experience. Whether it is a faulty air-conditioning unit, noisy location or a bad mattress; the little things can add up to a stressful holiday.

Picking the best vacation house is a challenge for every family. However, you should always keep a close eye on the comfort factor of every property. If you have children, the minor flaws of the location will truly affect their experience. The unfamiliarity of a new place has already put them in an awkward position, so you need to make sure that everything is in order to reduce their anxieties. Adults are more adaptable, but they, too, have their own expectations and standards. As the vacation planner, you need to make sure that the house you will be purchasing or renting has complete amenities to satisfy the needs of your family.


There are a lot of resource tools that could help you pinpoint the best vacation property within your budget range and choice of location. You can scour classified ads and real estate brochures to know more about the existing properties for rent or sale. If you have the means to access the internet, there are online property marketplaces that you can use for free. The Philippine property finding platform, Zipmatch, is a worthwhile option that you can try. You can not only check curated listings from the site but also get concierge or broker service if need be. You can also ask for referrals from friends and co- workers to build your property list and narrow it down to your dream vacation house.

Some properties have expensive price tags, especially the ones located in private locations. In such cases, you are not only paying for the vacation house. You are also paying for the peace and quiet you get. Families will not be able to relax and rejuvenate in the middle of a bustling metro. What is the point of spending for a vacation house if it is neither located in a beautiful location nor exclusive to your family? The premium price is always worth it if your family was able to rejuvenate and de- stress during their stay.

Prices of fully- furnished vacation houses are also higher as compared to the empty ones. If you do not have time to shop or decorate prior to your holiday break, why would you stress yourself in living without complete amenities? The premium price of a fully- furnished vacation house is reasonable because you no longer need to put time and effort in ensuring a convenient and relaxing stay. Everything is laid out for you once the lease contract is signed.

Don't compromise your family’s comfort while on vacation just to score a deal. You may have saved on expenses, but your family will not enjoy their time with the little flaws here and there. Comfort is always worth its cost.
