Info of Hotel Room with Timeshare Villa

Most people don’t realize that you don’t have to OWN a timeshare in order to stay in one. There are thousands of timeshares available to rent and many more for timeshare exchange. Timeshare salespeople make you feel like there is this “shortage” of units and you should have this urgency to buy. You can rent a unit from an owner or from a resort. And you have the freedom to bargain with either one. I have rented my timeshare out several times and it’s always worked out great. You don’t need a management company because the resort handles check-in, security, and any extra charges the renter might ring up on their tab. You simply get payment from the renter and then make the reservation for them at the resort. They check in at the resort, give a credit card for damage deposit, and have a great stay.

Not only does the timeshare offer you more but it’s also less expensive to rent. Here are the 3 biggest reasons why it’s better:
1. Tons of space: Hotel rooms are claustrophobic. It’s one room. There’s barely room to walk by the beds. A whole family in one hotel room is really pushing it. In a timeshare, there are multiple rooms. It has a separate bedroom, a kitchen, and another living room that converts to a bedroom at night (sometimes there’s even a locking door in between that offers complete privacy). The unit comes with a fantastic balcony to sit outside, have a drink and enjoy the fresh air. That doesn’t happen if you are vacationing in a hotel room. You can eat meals at a kitchen table and/or kitchen island. The bathrooms are much larger and some units include a Jacuzzi tub.

2. Lots of amenities: Just having a kitchen is a huge win. Personally, I like going to the fridge (a real one, not that mini bar thing in your hotel) and grabbing a cold drink and some food when I want. I don’t want to have to call room service and hope it’s open and then hope they remember to bring my food an hour later. I like having it now. And if you are vacationing with kids, every minute counts to avoid the dreaded “meltdown”.

Imagine a nice relaxing morning of having breakfast on your balcony overlooking the beach rather than fighting the crowd at the buffet downstairs. It’s healthier, less time consuming, less expensive and a more relaxing way to start the day. At night you have separate TVs so there’s no arguing about what to watch and even a DVD player. My unit has a really nice sound system (not that little alarm clock from the hotel room that can’t keep a station unless you hold the antenna and stand on one foot).

And there’s no maid service knocking on your door waking you up to clean the room every day. Maid service comes twice a week at timeshare resorts. You don’t have to deal with hanging that silly door hanger to give yourself another 20 minutes of privacy.

3. Cost – It’s actually less expensive to stay in a timeshare. I know it’s hard to believe but there are thousands of timeshares that you can rent right now for much less than the cost of a hotel room in the same exact area. And if you own, the annual fees are definitely less than the cost of 1 week in a hotel room. A hotel room will cost you at least $150 per night with taxes. That’s over $1,000 for the week. If you’re on an island vacation it’s 2-3x that price. You’ll find almost all timeshares for rent that are below that price.

I know another option is renting a house. That leaves you with questions like “who’s liable for damages or theft?”, “Is the location good? I’ve never been there.”, and without a brand name, you have no idea of the quality. I just think it’s odd to be sleeping in someone else’s bed and using their refrigerator. So to me, it’s not worth the hassle unless you know the owner or know firsthand someone that has stayed there and it’s a quality place. And most of the time, the cost to rent a house is much higher anyway. So that’s not a viable option for me.

Select a Good Holiday Villa in Spain

What kind of villas do you prefer?

Getting an idea about the layout, the floor plan and the type of villa you are getting into is very important. If you want an experience of Spain, villas that are slightly more traditional in the mannerisms including the architecture are a better option. If you are looking for absolute luxury, the standards are pretty much same across the world and you will have to go for a beachside villa that offers you great comfort and magnificent views.

The location

Perhaps the location of a holiday villa in Spain could be amongst the most important factors whilst choosing one. Some holiday villas are located deep away from the major stations and airports. In such cases, you might need to hire a car to take you around. More importantly, ensure that you reach such villas before it is too dark as the roads could be nasty and often badly signposted. The safety of the villas and the route that leads to them also needs to be a primary concern if you are heading for a holiday with your family.

Basic needs

Sightseeing is your primary motive, so ensure that your villa is not too far away from important attractions. You should also ensure that there are restaurants nearby, if you want to eat out of the villa for a meal or two.

Germany Travel Tip

The Bertha Benz Memorial Route comprises the biggest part of North Baden. Discover the Upper Rhine Valley with its favorable climate and the Bergstrasse with the earliest almond blossoms in Germany; enjoy the scenic drive through the Odenwald Mountains with their natural reserve and the often-praised Neckar valley with its many castles. Continue your leisurely travel on the Memorial Route through the region of the Kraichgau, which is often referred to as the German Tuscany. Then make your way to the world-famous northern Black Forest with its Natural Park and mundane Baden-Baden just around the corner. These landscapes are also linked by what makes Baden, the land of the connoisseurs, absolutely unique. The gastronomic culture of Baden, which splendidly competes with Alsatian and French cooking, as well as a wine, that really fits the motto smiled upon by the sun.

When following the route driven by Bertha Benz in 1888, you come across some of Germany’s most outstanding sightseeing highlights.

Mannheim, the City of the Squares, with its castle (being the building with the highest number of windows in Europe after the Castle of Versailles), its water tower and Luisenpark; Dr. Carl Benz invented the automobile in Square T 6, which is a residential area today. Ladenburg with its beautiful medieval city center based on Roman foundations, the Dr. Carl Benz Museum, as well as the villa of the Benz family. Schriesheim towered by Strahlenburg castle, romantic Heidelberg with its often-praised castle and the vibrating old city center, where you can find one of the oldest universities in Europe founded in 1386.

Wiesloch with the world’s first filling station and renowned vineries and Bruchsal with its baroque castle. In Grötzingen, at the outskirts of Karlsruhe, Dr. Carl Benz was born; the Fan city is grouped around the castle from the year 1715, which accommodates the Badisches Landesmuseum state museum today. Pforzheim, the Golden City and the gate to the Black Forest, with its jewelry museum. Bretten, where religious reformer Philipp Melanchton was born and which is just around the corner from Maulbronn monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where Hermann Hesse (Steppenwolf) was a student. Hockenheim with its Formula 1 race course and the motor sports museum and finally Schwetzingen, its castle and the world-famous castle gardens, as well as the world’s most delicious asparagus (it must have been invented here).

In 1886, Dr Carl Benz invented the automobile in Mannheim (Reich Patent No. 37435) – but nobody wanted to buy it.

But when Bertha Benz, his wife, went with her 13- and 15-year-old sons on a long-distance trip in 1888 from Mannheim to Pforzheim and back – without her husband’s knowledge – to prove that the horseless coach was absolutely suitable for daily use, it became a huge success with almost a billion drivers worldwide today! Bertha Benz (née Ringer) was born on 3 May 1849 in Pforzheim, Germany. She married inventor Karl Benz on 20 July 1872, and died 5 May 1944 in Ladenburg. She invested in Benz’s business in 1871, enabling him to develop the first patented automobile.
