Not everyone lives in Toronto year-round. For some, getting closer to the city is a seasonal change. Spending the holidays here or coming here for the summer is the preferred state of things. However, unless you want to pay outrageous hotel prices, it might be more economical to invest in a custom Toronto vacation home. Here are some of the benefits of keeping a second home.
Is there anything better than deciding you want a change of scenery and just going somewhere? With a custom Toronto vacation home, you can just make the decision to visit the city without having to plan anything. Think of spontaneous weekend vacation dates with your significant other. Or a quick visit to family without sleeping on their pullout sofa. Getting to visit Toronto without planning ahead is a fantastic way to turn vacation into something relaxing – which it should be!
Flexible Vacation Dates
Not only can you go on vacation at the drop of a hat, your vacation dates are flexible. Booking a hotel or a room at a bed and breakfast doesn’t have that kind of flexibility. Planning to spend a couple weeks in the city over your kids’ spring break? Finding out last minute that one of them has one more midterm 3 days into spring break isn’t going to cost you hundreds in hotel rent or cancelation fees. Simply staying behind a few extra days is completely free.
It goes the other way too! Everyone already packed a couple days ahead of time? Surprise the family by calling in sick to work and whisking them away a bit earlier than expected. Your custom Toronto vacation home is waiting and ready.
Comfortable, Personal Lodgings
A hotel has its perks. However, even when you’re paying an arm and a leg, getting a hotel room never really feels personal. For a lot of people, it’s hard to relax when thinking about someone else having slept in the same bed 12 hours earlier. Plus, even the cleanest hotel rooms have dirty little secrets hidden in the fabrics and carpet. Do you really want to spend your vacation paying hundreds a night for a space that’s riddled with unsavory history?
Vacationing in your own home means staying somewhere that’s stocked with all of the essentials, right to your specifications. The towels are the right size and softness, the design is exactly what you like, and the kitchen is full-sized and full of utensils. Plus, if you find yourself on vacation frequently, you can simply keep a second set of clothes and such at your Toronto vacation home. Then, packing more than a backpack isn’t even necessary.
AirBnB Property in the Off-Season
If you find yourself only using your Toronto vacation home for a quarter of the year and don’t mind sharing the space, you can also rent it out as an AirBnB property. Or, if you’d rather have fewer people using your home, you can simply sublet it. If you spend summers there, sublet it for the school year to students. If you spend the school year in Toronto, sublet it for the summer as a vacation destination. No matter how you do it, you can make a few bucks instead of letting it sit empty.
