Why Choose Rentals Over Hotels on Holiday

When you are booking a family holiday, it can be difficult to find the space for all of you in one place. For some families, hotel rooms have to be split because there are limits in hotel rooms for how many can sleep in them. Every single holiday destination has hotels that you can enjoy being in, and if you choose a hotel for your family holiday you would be just like most people. Have you considered a rental instead? 

Whether you book an AirBNB or you see Ocean Florida for any of their villa options, you should consider a rental rather than a hotel for your next family holiday. There are so many benefits to choosing somewhere to stay away from a hotel and once you have the right accommodation booked, you’ll be able to go much further with your trip. So, why should you choose a rental over a hotel?

  1. The value for money. When you go self-catering for a family holiday, you get so much more freedom. You don’t have to stick to meal times set by a resort or hotel, and you don’t have to be stuck in one room. For the same price of a hotel room for all, you can get an entire villa or apartment and still enjoy an amazing holiday.
  2. You can live like a local while you travel. When you choose a rental, you can immerse yourself in the resort areas and you can enjoy a much greater understanding of the local culture, the local way of life and some of the local cuisines, too. You can practise your language skills in a new place and you can experience so much more than you think!
  3. You get more space. A rental gives you more rooms. You’re not just encroached in the floor space of a bedroom; you get living spaces, a kitchen to cook in, a bathroom and bedrooms. You might even be afforded a private swimming pool so that you can swim in peace without other people. It’s a nice way to spread out when you are travelling as a larger family and it makes the holiday much more fun.
  4. You can set your routines. You don’t have to stick to the timings of kids clubs and resort meals when you are in a villa or an AirBNB. Instead, you can set your own meal times and routines and if you fancy sleeping in, you can have a later breakfast and that’ll be just fine.
  5. You can remain flexible. You can book excursions if you like but they don’t have to be booked through a hotel. Being flexible with your holiday is important but you can do that with a rental. You can book the days out that you want and you can BBQ in the backyard. You can even have lazy days around the rental pool.

Hotels offer certain luxuries on holiday but when you’re going away with family, you might want to spread out into your own space. Choosing a rental allows you to do that!

Lychee Oriental (Glasgow) 2022 : Review

Todays Visit

It had been ages since I have visited here, and today I was going to the cinema with a friend and suggested we eat here.

Anytime I get asked what the best Chinese restaurant in Glasgow is, here is always the one that instantly comes to mind.

The Food

Crispy Duck Rolls £6.50

Apologies for the poor photos, my phone isn’t good in darker light but you should get a good idea of what they are like.

If I have ordered these it was many moons ago, and I felt like trying something different and this jumped out at me.

On arrival, these looked very nice and sealed very good.

I tried it on its own and the flavour of the duck was very nice, then I tried it with the dip and wow this transported it to another level.

I was a little disappointed that I had finished it but, I will be getting this dish again!!

Highly recommended if you’re a duck fan.

Crispy Shredded Sweet n Chilli Chicken £14.50 + Egg Fried Rice £3.50

I know that Jimmy would probably laugh at me tonight, as the main dish is what I always order….but it’s just so good!

Yes I know I had this MANY times in the past, but it’s my favourite dish when I am here.

The flavours and the presentation are all just so good.

The chicken is always very tender, the flavour has a great mix of sweet and sour and combined with the rice or on its own, it tastes really good.

Another highly recommended dish!

Visit Overall

Just like all my previous visits, tonight’s visit was very good.

I was very happy to see how busy it was, but Lychee has always been busy and this is a good sign.

Jimmy even popped out to see me which was a really nice surprise as it had been a while since we last met 🙂

This place is among my top restaurants to visit, if you haven’t checked it out make sure you book and I promise you that you won’t be disappointed.

Mull of Galloway Lighthouse VLOG

I was recently out with a friend, who told me about the lighthouse and how it featured in a movie. He showed me some photos and I knew I had to take a visit.

From Glasgow to here its 2.5 to 3 hours drive. This was an interesting drive with lots of narrow and winding roads, but it was 100% worth it as you will see by my video it was stunning….and would be more stunning on a lovely clear day.

The Mull of Galloway is Scotland’s most Southerly Point and one of the best kept secrets in the UK. The Rhins of Galloway peninsula remains an unspoiled paradise for visitors on the lookout for peace and tranquillity. Beautiful countryside awaits you in the Rhins of Galloway, together with miles of sandy beaches, splendid views and cliff top walks.

Wildlife in the area is abundant and the Mull of Galloway is one of the best places in the UK to view dolphins, porpoises and many sea birds. The warm climate means that the area is blessed with stunning gardens, each with its own individuality, and a variety of plants and trees.
