A First Timer's Guide To Vacation Rentals

Why Choose A Rockport Vacation Rental Over a Hotel

Vacation rentals have begun to gain steam and attention as more and more guests begin to take advantage of the added space, amenities, and comfort that comes with booking a private home or condo! Compared to the traditional hotel experience, vacation rentals allow guests to experience the home-away-from-home feeling that comes with being in a spacious property. 

 Benefits of Booking a Rockport Vacation Rental 

When you book a Rockport vacation rental, you can expect to have the added space and amenities that come with living rooms and kitchens right in your rental! Traveling with the whole family or a group of friends? Booking a vacation rental home means saving money on multiple hotel rooms and having the luxury of everyone staying in the same place! Spend quality time cozying up in a living room while still having the bedroom space needed for everyone to rest and relax.  

Having a kitchen in your vacation rental means that you can enjoy home-cooked meals and save money on eating out during your stay. Have post-fishing h'orderves at home following a day on the water or whip up breakfast in the kitchen before heading out to explore Rockport’s many outdoor activities.  

What to Bring & What is Provided with a Rockport Vacation Rental 

Before you pack your bags and start your trek to Rockport, it’s important to know what will be waiting for you in your vacation rental! You won't need to bring along linens or towels as those will all be provided for you. Also, Rockport Escapes come stocked with a starter supply of the following items:
