Summer Vacation: Three US Destinations for Family Fun

Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) May 22, 2007

Looking for some fun for the whole family this summer? Whether looking to hit the beach, head to the world’s most magical destination or enjoy some wholesome family fun on one of the greatest lakes, there are three great options for families looking to plan the ultimate vacation with children of all ages and interests.

Lounging Lakeside

These days it’s hard to imagine, but there was a time when life was simpler and families looked forward to summer vacation as a chance to spend quality time together. Grand Traverse Resort & Spa, located along the shores of Lake Michigan’s Grand Traverse Bay, boasts a summer lake resort atmosphere where wholesome family fun and beautiful scenery are sure to help families reconnect.

Whether canoeing on local rivers, swimming at the Resort’s Beach Club, visiting a nearby orchard or farm to pick fruit, savoring s’mores at the evening bonfire, or fishing at a local hotspot, children are sure to discover that television and text messaging are overrated.

Named one of the nation’s best family resorts, Grand Traverse Resort & Spa has over $ 12 million in recent property-wide renovations and offers cherry-inspired spa services for mom and teen daughters, three championship golf courses for dad, and fun-filled water sports for kids of all ages. The resort also has programs for younger children to enjoy crafts, games and story time, while older children participate in exciting day camp experiences.

Add to the mix galleries for shopping and fine dining and families have just about everything wanted.

Home Away from Home

Families make lots of sacrifices when traveling together, whether it’s time, space, comfort, or even privacy. For those heading to sunny Orlando this summer, don’t sweat it. Here’s an affordable and family-friendly alternative that’s guaranteed to bring everyone together, sacrifice-free, under one spacious roof: All Star Vacation Homes.

The deal: rather than booking multiple hotel rooms, Orlando visitors can bond in a fully furnished vacation home that’s located less than four miles from Walt Disney World. Multiple bedrooms mean privacy and preference when it comes to bedtime for all ages, and a fully equipped kitchen saves on the time and costs associated with dining out.

Imagine coming home after a long, magical day at the Orlando theme parks and kicking back together in a private pool. Or crawling into your pajamas and gathering to watch a DVD in a cinema-style home theater room.

Whether a family is large or small, All Star offers 150 homes in every size and price range. Starting at $ 119 a night, guests can choose from two- and three-bedroom condos and town homes to seven-bedroom Estate homes.

Additionally, both kids and parents can enjoy the vacation planning process itself by working together to choose their favorite home online.

Gondola Resorts, Inc. Launches Florida Vacation Rental Division and Adds 100 Lodging Options in Orlando

Denver, CO (Vocus/PRWEB) April 12, 2011

Gondola Resorts, Inc. today officially added a group of new vacation homes for rent in the Orlando, Florida area that intends to serve thousands of travelers looking for alternatives to the small and confined hotel rooms in the area.

“We see the movement of people requesting more alternatives to the typical 250 square foot hotel room. The 100 rental properties we represent in Orlando truly give consumers a terrific alternative. So, it’s important to us that we continue to expand our offerings and features that provide for enhanced vacations for families,” said Gino Malara, Founder and Executive Director, Gondola Resorts. Gondola Resorts’ new nationwide partnerships are based on property management companies desiring increased bookings at the most efficient and lowest overall investment cost. Gondola Resorts effectively provides this unique and cost effective solution with no investment or risk.

The Denver based company has launched a total of 350 rental property locations in Colorado and Florida since July 2009, including 3 to 7 bedroom homes in Emerald Island, Glenbrook, Indian Creek and 31 other Orlando communities. 90% of the vacation rentals are less than 10 minutes to Disney World, 15 minutes to Sea World and 20 minutes to Universal Studios . The home rentals intend to service the growing population that demands more conveniences, along with providing strategies to help families save money. Strategies to minimize overall expenses include gourmet kitchens that reduce the need for eating-out, and providing in-home entertainment options such as billiards and foos ball tables.

Consistently ranked as one of the top family destinations in the world, Orlando’s number of attractions and extensive offering of family activities make it an ideal location. The new vacation rental location will be Gondola Resorts’ latest addition to what has only been known as a mountain-town rental company. Vacation rental condos and homes near Sea World and Universal studios include Vista Cay, Windsor Hills and Viz Cay.

A deeper analysis of hotels vs. vacation rental homes in the Orlando area offer a better insight into cost savings. Nightly rates for a normal 250 square foot hotel room at The Grand Floridian, located on the Disney World resort property, rents for $ 450 per night. In comparison, a 7 bedroom home in Emerald Island 5-minutes outside the Disney gates, with a private swimming pool, rents for $ 305 per night according to Gondola Resorts’ internet research conducted on April 7, 2011.

“It’s quite evident that a growing number of vacation travelers are moving to home rentals to replace the typical tiny hotel room,” says Malara. “We continuously compare the benefits in our market research and 99% of the time a vacation rental home or condo wins out. We also promote our corporate slogan that summarizes all the benefits of a vacation rental – Find what brings you joy and go there’”.

These “home-away-from-homes” are improved by the addition of an easy to navigate website that can easily add agility and is intended to make the vacation planning process less hectic. Additionally, Gondola Resorts’ new “Compare Prices” utility saves chosen vacation rentals so an individual has the ability to quickly and easily compare 3 or less lodging options. This function gives consumers the chance to evaluate features and benefits of each rental property in order to optimize the selection process.

Gondola Resorts plans to add property locations to the recently-launched Orlando market which will expand offerings to resort locations in Destin, Fort Meyer’s, Daytona Beach and Clearwater, Florida. Operations will be managed out of the company’s Denver office with local partnerships in each market.

Free and Budget-Friendly Adventures: A Virginia Beach Vacation is Easy on the Wallet

Virginia Beach, VA (Vocus) March 4, 2009

During times of recession and economic downturns, vacationers are searching for free and budget-friendly adventures. Regardless of the strength of the markets – Virginia Beach always offers a wealth of activities that are easy on the budget. From exploring the parks and wildlife to lounging on sun-drenched beaches, Virginia Beach beckons you to “Live the Life!” For more information and images, visit http://www.vbfun.com or http://www.vbpressroom.com.

Enjoy the Beaches

With 14 miles of open, public beaches – with no fees – Virginia Beach offers a variety of unique beaches to fit every mood. The newly-landscaped Virginia Beach resort area features live music, street performers, diverse festivals, as well as outdoor cafes and nightlife. If your idea of a “day at the beach” is more relaxed, visit Chesapeake Beach (known to the locals as “Chick’s Beach) for a more tranquil spot along the scenic Chesapeake Bay. Swimmers will enjoy the bay’s protected shallow waters. For a more secluded environment, the Sandbridge area on Virginia Beach’s southern shore is perfect. The pristine shores of Sandbridge are secluded, quiet and just 20 minutes from the main resort area. No hotels. Just breathtaking ocean-view rental homes, condominiums and peacefulness fill the Sandbridge shoreline. Sand sweeps from the shore, the traffic is less and seagulls leave long-lasting footprints.

Back to Nature

With more than 18,000 acres of state parks and a national wildlife refuge, families can embark on many free outdoor excursions. First Landing State Park, the most visited state park in Virginia, offers free monthly educational programs that include hiking, surf fishing, and animal tracking. Bike through Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge or False Cape State Park, and discover miles of unspoiled beaches in an ocean-to-freshwater bay habitat, barrier islands, dunes, freshwater marshes, maritime forests, ponds and ocean beaches. Back Bay and False Cape are home to wild horses, pigs, loggerhead turtles, bald eagles and a variety of migratory birds and endangered species.

Beach Street U.S.A.

The oceanfront comes alive with special themed entertainment along the sidewalks of Atlantic Avenue from 17th to 25th Streets nightly during the summer months. During Beach Street U.S.A., puppets, bands, jugglers, magicians and others entertain crowds right on the sidewalks. Free live concerts and theatrical productions take place seven nights a week along the oceanfront.

Oceanfront Festivals and Events

Virginia Beach celebrates diversity as it pulsates with a myriad of festivals, celebrations, and cultural events throughout the year. Dance to the beat of salsa, merengue, mamba and bachata tunes presented by some of the best national and regional acts at the annual Latin Festival. Explore the African origins of today’s diversified music genres during the Soul Music Beachfest and the Blues at the Beach festival. Groove to Caribbean, Latin, and pop music during the steel band competition at PANorama Caribbean Music Fest. Virginia Beach celebrates the German spirit each year with good food and good drink during Oktober Brewfest. Indulge in pizza, prosciutto and fontina, caprese, eggplant parmesan, lasagna, espresso, gelato and all things Italian at Festa Italiana. Festivals at the oceanfront are free and open to the public so grab your dancing shoes and bring your moves down to the Virginia Beach oceanfront festivals.

Historic Homes

Historic homes throughout the city offer a peek into the lives of Virginia Beach’s earliest residents. The Adam Thoroughgood House (circa 1680) stands on land that was part of an original land grant. Other historic homes still standing in Virginia Beach were constructed later in the colonial period such as the Lynnhaven House (1725), the Ferry Plantation House (1740) and the Francis Land House (late 1700s). All homes are open to the public for tours and host special interpretative programs throughout the year. Admission to the Adam Thoroughgood, Lynnhaven, and Francis Land Houses are $ 4 for adults; $ 3 for seniors 60 plus; and $ 2 for students. Admission for the Ferry Plantation House is $ 5 for adults; $ 2 for senior citizens and students are free.

Old Coast Guard Station

Step back in time at The Old Coast Guard Station. Housed in a 1903 former U.S. Life Saving Station, this quaint, oceanfront museum features rescue equipment used by turn-of-the-century surf men to save shipwrecked crews from a watery grave. Learn about shipwrecks that occurred just off the Virginia Beach coast and the history of lifesaving service from World War II to the present day. Take a peek through TOWERCAM, a roof-mounted video camera that zooms in on passing ships dotting the Virginia Beach horizon. The camera affords museum visitors the same view crewmen had from the tower nearly 100 years ago. Admission to the museum is $ 4 for adults and $ 2 for children ages 6-18.

Cape Henry Lighthouse and Memorial Park

Peek into the past at the original Cape Henry Lighthouse. Dating to 1791, it’s the oldest government-built lighthouse in America. Once you reach the summit, enjoy a panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean and the Chesapeake Bay – the same view once seen by ship watchers more than 200 years ago. Located on the Fort Story military base, the original Cape Henry Lighthouse is open to the public. Across the road, you’ll find the new Cape Henry Lighthouse. Built in 1881, it’s the tallest iron-encased lighthouse in the country, and is operated by the U.S. Coast Guard. Adjacent to the lighthouses, visitors also tour the Cape Henry Memorial Park which includes a replica of the First Landing Cross, planted by the first settlers to give thanks for a safe voyage after arriving on our shore in 1607. Admission to the lighthouse is $ 4 for adults, $ 3 for children ages 3-12, and free for children three and under. Note: Cape Henry Lighthouse is on Ft. Story military base. Access to military bases may be restricted for public tours, and a valid picture ID and vehicle search is required.

Virginia Beach entices visitors to “Live the Life” every season of the year! Virginia Beach is four hours southeast of D.C. by car and within a day’s drive or less from two-thirds of the U.S. population. For visitor information, call 1-800-VA-BEACH (800/822-3224) or visit the Web site http://www.vbfun.com for online trip planning.

Endless Vacation Rentals(SM) Offers Novel Earnings Potential for Travel Agents and Money-Saving Benefits for Travelers in Weakened Economy

Parsppany, NJ (PRWEB) May 7, 2008

Even with the slow-down of the economy and decline of the dollar, travelers are still looking for that long-awaited summer vacation, but they definitely are looking to save money! A great option available through Endless Vacation Rentals helps traditional and home-based travel agents effectively stretch travel dollars on vacation stays for their clients, while also boosting travel agent earnings. Whether planning a family vacation, a getaway with friends or a romantic escape for two, renting a vacation villa, resort condo, or cottage is a terrific way for travelers to vacation without breaking the bank.

“Vacation rentals are a wonderful bargain, pretty much no matter how you do the math,” said John T. Peters CTIE, vice president of Travel Trade and Business Development for Endless Vacation Rentals. “We also know that vacation rentals are perfect for families,” continued Peters. “Our vacation rentals typically feature multi-room accommodations with enough space to ‘hang out’ in. Think about it, no getting the kids dressed and rounded up for breakfast; Just enjoy it as a family in the kitchen! There’s plenty of room for the in-laws…you know, the extra bedroom on the other end of the unit with its own bathroom – because it’s nice to have them close (okay, but not too close).”

Here are the top reasons how booking a vacation rental with Endless Vacation Rentals helps stretch vacation dollars and boost travel agent earnings:

1. For the cost of a long weekend at a comparable hotel, travelers can often stay for a whole week in a vacation rental. In addition, The “Last Minute Escapes” section of VacationRentals4Agents.com offers close-in deals on studio accommodations for $ 329* USD per week, one bedroom stays for $ 379* USD per week, and two-bedrooms and larger for $ 399* USD per week. These offerings are updated every other Wednesday, are valid for travel within 30 days, and each is for a 7-night stay – even if the traveler doesn’t stay all 7 nights, the prices are virtually unbeatable.

2. When you book at VacationRentals4Agents.com, there is no extra charge for additional guests up to the selected accommodations’ maximum occupancy – representing a significant per person cost savings on comparable accommodations. Plus once a rental is booked and paid, rates are locked-in and protected against any additional fluctuations of the dollar. Additionally, booking accommodations with Endless Vacation Rentals allows travelers to budget accurately before embarking on their travels with no surprise fees or taxes imposed while they are on vacation.

3. In-room amenities (most units) like major appliances and fully equipped kitchens are a welcome advantage! Travelers can save money on drinks and snack or even the occasional meal when they have a refrigerator in their room. In-room washers and dryers cut-down on expensive laundry services. It’s travel made easy for an overall better vacation experience.

4. With such a vast range of options…From studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom resort condos in destinations such as Arizona, Florida, Las Vegas, Mexico, and the Caribbean – to villas, cottages and homes in Italy, France, Great Britain and beyond – there are prices and locations to suit just about any traveler’s budget and preferences.

5. The $ 36 billion vacation exchange and rental industry is a growing segment of the market – Clearly, one that agents can’t afford to ignore. Booking at VacationRentals4Agents.com helps boost agent earnings with attractive commissions, customarily 12 percent and up to 20 percent on special promotions. Traditional and home-based travel agents can use VacationRentals4Agents.com as a ‘live’ catalog from which to select accommodations at resort condos, villas, vacation homes and more in destinations across the globe — then simply book it right there online. Plus, the company also maintains a travel industry hotline for live assistance and a dedicated travel industry sales team.

Here’s an example of what kinds of accommodations you can book for your clients: In looking at the Endless Vacation Rentals dedicated agent website today, VacationRentals4Agents.com a two-bedroom unit at the Polynesian Isles Resort in the Orlando, Florida area is $ 600* per WEEK and it sleeps up to 6 people. That’s about $ 43* USD per person, per night. Are your clients looking to visit Italy? The Montegiovi villa in Italy’s Florentine hills is listed at $ 2,440* USD for a week in May and it sleeps 10 people. That’s $ 35* USD per person per night. Plus, it has five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a pool and views of olive, pine and cypress tree groves.

“So next time one of your clients asks for more than one hotel room, stop and think a moment,” said Peters. “Remember vacation rentals. Remember us: Endless Vacation Rentals. We’re your one-stop shop for all your vacation rental needs; from resort condos in Orlando and the beaches of Mexico, to villas in Europe and beyond.”

Endless Vacation Rentals features a dedicated Web address for traditional and home-based travel agents to book and earn commissions at VacationRentals4Agents.com. This travel agent portal makes searching content, viewing availability in real time, and booking vacation rentals quick and easy – from resort condos in destinations across the U.S., Mexico, and the Caribbean, to country cottages in the U.K. and vacation villas in Italy and France.
