6. And, of course, you are less restrictive when it comes to guest parties and the overall factor of annoyance.

However, to make sure you have lasting memories, you may want to ask yourself a few questions before booking your next vacation rental reservation:

1. Who will be your neighbors? Is anyone in the immediate vicinity registered as a child rapist or rapist?

2. Has the house been thoroughly cleaned? Are bed problems a problem? Are the bathtubs, baths, kitchens, rugs and all surfaces in the house cleaned daily? And who is responsible for cleaning them? Will it be the owner, maid or a concierge company?

3. When staying at a hotel do you have the option of moving to another room when circumstances dictate, are there similar options to your vacation rental?

4. Privacy is an issue. Are there surveillance cameras on the premises? If so, are surveillance cameras used for security measures or are they just an invasion of your privacy?

5. Is your security a problem? Will a landline telephone be included in the accommodations? Are the hosts trusted?

6. Do the tourism office, health department and / or government agencies provide control of the holiday accommodation?

These are just some of the questions that you should ask yourself before making the appointment. In order to make your travels happier and more secure for you and your loved ones.
