Perks Of Vacation Rentals

If you are planning an upcoming trip to the Lake of the Ozarks, there are many reasons why you should consider renting a home. Our Lake of the Ozarks vacation rentals offers many great benefits that a hotel room can't offer. Here are just a few of the advantages you can enjoy when you stay in a Lake of the Ozarks vacation rental.

Amber 1

1. Do your laundry. Most of our vacation rentals have washers and dryers. This means you can pack less and have more room for souvenirs! Or you can do laundry mid-week or all your laundry while on vacation so you can come home with a suitcase full of clean clothes, so you don't have to worry about doing it when you get home.

2. Ability to cook at home. Having a refrigerator, oven or microwave can really help save you money on eating out. Going out to eat every day for every single meal can get really expensive really fast. The Lake of the Ozarks has more than 100 restaurants, so you'll want to try some of them, but having the ability to cook at home is a nice option to have.

3. More space to enjoy. Vacation homes and condos can provide your family more space to spread out than a hotel room. They're like a home away from home. Instead of being cooped up in one room, spread out, relax and unwind.

4. Cost effective. While vacation rentals may be a tad more expensive than a hotel room, you can get more bang for your buck. If you're enjoying your vacation to the Lake of the Ozarks with multiple families or if you're enjoying a family reunion, you can rent out a vacation home rather than multiple hotel rooms and it may even be cheaper.

5. More variety to choose from. Every vacation rental is different. From cozy condos to large homes, there are many rentals to choose from. In addition, each vacation rental is going to have different views, different amenities, etc. At Keys to the Lake, we can help you find the perfect rental to meet your needs!

6. Enjoy the comfort of home. Vacation rentals offer you and your family all the comforts of home (and maybe even more) all while on vacation. You have space to spread out, comfortable living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens and more.

7. Great customer service. At Keys to the Lake, our number one goal is to make sure you have a great time while on vacation to the Lake of the Ozarks. This all starts with making sure you have the perfect place to stay while in town. We can help you find the perfect rental, help you decide on activities to do, book tee times and more.
