I used to rent hotel rooms all of the time while I traveled, but once I discovered that you could rent people’s houses while they were away, I ditched the hotel rooms and began renting houses all to myself.
There are a lot of reasons why renting a house is better than renting a hotel room, but there are some negatives to it too.
For instance, when the central air conditioner isn’t working in the middle of the summer, it is no longer as nice. When you got to a hotel room where the central air conditioner isn’t working, the only thing that you have to do is ask the receptionist for a different room with a working air conditioner. However, when you rent a house with a broken central air conditioner, then the only thing that you can do is get a refund and find a hotel room. Or you can learn to deal with the broken air conditioner and be grumpy for your entire vacation. I was so bummed when I stepped into this awesome house and found that the central air conditioner was broken. It was hot, and I didn’t want to go through the hassle of applying for a refund and finding a hotel room. I called the owner of the house, and they called an HVAC technician. I had to deal with the warm house for nearly a week before the HVAC technician was able to fix the central air conditioner. Thankfully, I spent most of my time away from home. They should check the air conditioners before somebody rents the place.
