5 Signs of Good Holiday Rental Accommodation

Hurrah, you’re finally going on holiday. It feels like such a long time since the last one, doesn’t it? But before you get carried away booking the first holiday accommodation you see, there’s a few things you should consider. Holiday rental accommodation varies so much in quality that it’s worth checking a few things first.

Here’s 5 signs of good holiday rental accommodation.

Good pictures

Pictures are the thing that will often sell a property to us. Those beautiful images in glossy brochures or on websites. They sell us a lifestyle that we aspire to. If we can picture ourselves relaxing fireside, or poolside with drinks in hand, then we’re sold.


Good reviews


This almost goes without saying, but make sure you check out reviews on booking, listings and other travel websites. Many reviews have quotes and headlines that just pick out snippets of the review but check the whole thing as you may miss something important.



Ratings can be taken from reviews, or they can be independently awarded. Look for guidebooks that only list the best properties, and organisations that award ratings based on their stringent guidelines. Don’t take ratings from tourist bodies or sites selling holidays too seriously though. They should only be used as a guide, for obvious reasons.

Good facilities
