Business and Corporate Travel
Vacation Homes provide unique opportunities for businesses to increase the success and reduce the expense of travel. Conferences, retreats, sales calls and other operations can be staged better from a home than from a hotel. Most often, our business clients remark that they had never considered staying in a vacation home, but after experiencing the difference, they prefer advantages of cost savings, meeting space, team building and fun.
Vacation Homes save money. Business travel is expensive. The cost of accommodating business teams in hotels increases with each team member. Individual hotel rooms require exclusive services for each member. By staying in a home, business teams consolidate the services required. A four or five bedroom home can comfortably accommodate seven, eight, or more team members. High speed internet access, garage parking, in home washer/dryers, and other costly hotel amenities are included with the rental rates of the home. Combined meal, entertainment, and other opportunities provide a huge cost savings.
Homes provide private meeting space. In hotels, teams either rent a private meeting room or settle for a loud, public lobby or restaurant table to do business. In a vacation home, teams can gather around a private dining table or living room in a private home at no added expense or effort. Presentations, strategy workshops, and work space are easily accommodated.
Hotels separate team members, while homes unite. Before and after the formal events of the business trip, team members can build relationships of trust and understanding by spending time together in a new, unstructured environment. Kitchens, living rooms, theater rooms, hot tubs, game and billiard tables surround team members, creating unscripted locations and moments for employees to connect. And don’t forget that these elements also provide for a whole lot more fun than a bland room with only a TV for companionship.
