Trust me when I say that choosing the right accommodation can make or break your trip.

Picture this: a cozy retreat where everyone has their own space, yet common areas foster togetherness and camaraderie. A place that caters to the diverse needs and preferences of all the individuals in your group. Sounds like a dream, right? Well, good news.

Tips for headache-free multifamily vacations

I’ve experienced the best of vacationing with multiple families…and a bit of the worst. From a weeklong Outer Banks stay with family to a quick weekend getaway to Kansas City with kids and girlfriends, I’ve tried it all. Here’s what I’ve learned:

  1. Plan time with the whole group and time with just your family. The whole point of staying in one place is to have all that time together, right? But I guarantee that you will need some time apart, so make a plan with everyone that there will at least one outing on your own. For one thing, not everyone has the same interests, so this will allow you to do something you really want to do with your family even if it’s not a crowd pleaser.
  2. Agree on the meal planning ahead of time. It’s fun to have meals together, but it’s not fun to do all the cooking for everyone and the cleaning up. So I recommend planning out who preps for each meal. And decide on who is bringing what food and drink items so you have what you need, but not like, five jars of peanut butter and no bread. And if you decide to do the grocery shopping together once you arrive, split the costs afterward.
  3. You’ll probably need more bathrooms than you think. Do I really need to go into the reason behind this one?
  4. Read the house rules. Avoid unexpected added expenses, and read the house rules carefully. Do you need to clean up and take the trash out before you leave? Is there a quiet hour enforced? Do you need to strip the bedding at the end of your stay? Each host is different when it comes to having guests in their rental home, so always check the rules.
