How to Make the Most of Your Stay in a Short Term Rental

Staying in a corporate rental has advantages over booking a hotel room and can provide many of the comforts of home. Here are three ways to maximize your stay in short term furnished rentals.

Stock the Fridge

In the short term furnished rentals, you’ll have a full-size refrigerator, so why not stock it with your go-to beverages, as well as eggs, bread, cheese, and other items to make a quick breakfast or snack? Before heading to work, you can enjoy a satisfying bite to eat, which can be wallet-friendly and healthier than most restaurant food. And at the end of the day, you can kick back with your favorite dessert — or even make dinner since your full kitchen comes stocked with pots, pans and other culinary essentials to whip up a home-cooked meal.

Make Yourself at Home

In a hotel, you may not even bother unpacking your suitcase, but when you stay in short term furnished rentals, you can easily take advantage of the extra space, which includes a large closet and plenty of room in the dresser drawers to arrange your clothing and other personal items. Take the time to settle in, and you’ll more fully enjoy your stay.

Enjoy the Amenities

Spend time at the end of the day relaxing on your unit’s balcony or patio. This can be an opportunity to have some quiet downtime from your phone and other media. Sitting by the pool is another great way to unwind and socialize with new neighbors. If you’re craving a juicy steak or burger, rather than getting takeout, you can make use of the facility’s poolside barbecue grill. Need a workout? Take a quick dip or head to the fitness center for aerobics or strength training.

Get to Know the Neighborhood

Take a walk or a short drive around your temporary neighborhood — you may discover a great Italian restaurant that’s perfect for dining out. With the money you’re saving by staying in a corporate furnished rental versus a hotel, you’ll be happy to splurge on a nice meal or two. And keep your eye out for a place to get coffee or an after-work beer, whatever suits your style. You’re likely to meet locals who can guide you to the neighborhood’s best pizzeria, Mexican cafe or shopping plaza. You may also discover nearby public transportation for a convenient way to get around. Whether your stay is for a few days or more long term, you’ll soon feel right at home.
