15 Questions to Ask Before Booking a Vacation Rentals

connecticut vacation rentalsThe short-term vacation rental home and condo choices now available on the market are fantastic. Waterfront luxury homes, camps and cabin rentals, and Connecticut beach cottages are available. However, quality Connecticut vacation rental property is in high demand and is often sold well in advance. It is always best to look and book well in advance of your planned visit, especially when seeking the perfect vacation rental property.

There are many thing to consider when shopping for a Connecticut vacation rental home or condo. Renting a private vacation home or condo is different than staying at a hotel. Some of thing you may not think about but may want to ask your rental property owner or agent include:

  • What’s the best route to take in order to avoid traffic?
  • Do you have a DVD player? What movies do you have on hand?
  • What kinds of “extras” do you have that I might want to know about, and where can I find them? (A lobster pot under the kitchen sink, board games in the hall closet, a sand bucket and shovel under the kids’ bed, etc.)
  • What Connecticut restaurants do you recommend? What are your favorite entrees there?
  • Which grocery stores are the best?
  • Where are the best golf courses? Hiking trails? Boat launches? Picnic areas?
  • What are some fun CT Attractions we can explore?
  • What linens do you provide, if any?
  • What “conveniences” do you have on hand? (i.e., hair dryers, toothpaste, shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, etc.)
  • What kind of cleaning chores, if any, should we do before we check out?
  • Can you provide directions to the nearest hospital, just in case?
  • What places of worship are nearby? (In case you want to attend services.)
  • What kind of dog-friendly activities are there to do in the area? (Assuming the owner allows pets.)
  • Who do I contact if there is some sort of problem while I’m here, for instance, if the water heater stops working or the power goes out?
  • Is there anything else you can tell me to help my family have the best possible Connecticut vacation experience?
