Have you ever wanted to sneak away to the Outer Banks for your family vacation, but you'd like to stay in a smaller vacation rental? We understand that while many families love to stay in some of the larger homes we offer, many want to have a comfy & cozy  home feeling too. We at Joe Lamb Jr & Associates have plenty of small to mid-sized vacation rentals that you can allow your family to enjoy. Let's look below at three reasons why staying in a small vacation rental is perfect for all families of all sizes.

We know that going on vacation with your family can be expensive, especially if you stay in a hotel and must get more than one room. Between paying for individual rooms and daily food, most aren't left with much money to spend on the extras. When you stay in a smaller vacation home, you're not only saving money in the long run, but you'll also have the extra space for everyone. We also have several specials that we run on our small vacation homes, so sneaking away from life at home for a weekend is doable and affordable.

Always More Space

Another great reason staying in a small to mid sized vacation rental is perfect is that you'll still have more room to be comfortable than inside a hotel room. Depending on how many are in your family, we have vacation rentals that will fit your entire family for a short getaway year-round. You will also have a full-sized kitchen which can help save money as you can cook your meals right there at the rental. Plus, there should be zero arguments from the kids on how long one may be taking in the bathroom, as you'll have more than one. Some of our homes also have rec rooms or outdoor space for you to enjoy together. We can't forget about mentioning that many of our small to mid-sized homes are also pet-friendly, so don't forget those four-legged friends too!

Relaxation is Key

Going on vacation with the family can seem overwhelming, especially if you have small kids. But when you stay with us in one of our 2-4 bedroom OBX Vacation Rentals, you'll be able to enjoy some relaxation too. Several smaller vacation homes have great amenities to help the parents relax with a hot tub, pool, or even that soaking tub in the primary bedroom. Everyone in the family can take a deep breath and breathe a little easier when you stay on the Outer Banks. With the light breeze that comes off the ocean to the smell of the salt air, you know that once you are over that bridge, you're on island time. Sit back and relax with the family on your little getaway.

There are so many other reasons why staying in a small vacation home on your next trip to the Outer Banks; we wanted to share these few.
