Holiday apartments are a popular choice for many travellers; offering many of the comforts of home, along with the added luxuries of swimming pools, gyms, spas, saunas, BBQ areas and often games rooms and outdoor play grounds to keep the children amused.
Holiday apartments are particularly fashionable for those travelling as a family; while the idea of lying idly by the pool all day reading a book and sipping a cocktail is appealing to most parents, it’s an idea not all that exciting to children. Holiday apartments offer the facilities to allow mum and dad to relax, while having enough activities to entertain the children. They are generally located in areas that have many family orientated activities for example, Queensland`s gold coast, which is home to Australia’s best theme and water parks and offers a variety of free child activities such as the beach and the excitement of Caval Avenue.
Another reason holiday apartments are popular is that unlike hotel rooms, which are often quite expensive and generally consist of one (1) room with a bed and a small bathroom, apartments come in varying sizes consisting of anywhere between 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms. Three (3) bedroom apartments are very popular; for those with children it gives you enough space to spread out and for those travelling in a group it offers the advantages of being able to reduce the cost of your holiday by splitting the cost while still allowing you to have your own personal space.
While there are many holiday apartments available on and around Australia’s coastal regions, they are not strictly limited to the suburbs. In fact Australia offers a large variety of holiday rental apartments to suit holidaymakers from all walks of life.
Australia is a diverse nation with many attractions for the inner foodie in all of us. Throughout Australia you will find many flavours worth tasting, from the prominent wineries in The Hunter Valley, Barossa Valley and Margret River to the emerging wine regions of Orange and Mugee.
Many companies such as Best Western offer fantastic deals on holiday apartments which are affordable and hassle free with packages available that offer not only offer cheap apartment-style accommodation, but also include tours of local attractions included in the price.
Australia is renowned for its amazing outback, bustling cities, luscious rainforests and amazing coast lines and, while each of these areas offers a new and unique experience for travellers, they all have in common the abundance of apartments to rent, which means, when you are holidaying in these areas, you can focus on appreciating the magnificent delights on offer while knowing you have a place to relax and call home at the end of the day.
Holiday apartments do not have the rating system typical to that of hotels and motels, however, that is not to say there is not a variety of different rental apartments available to suit travellers on all budgets. Within the one resort you will find many different types of apartments, ranging from cheaper one (1) bedroom apartments – usually on the ground floor with no view – to higher-end apartments within the same resort, which may have more three (3) or four (4) bedrooms, are a lot more spacious and offer a balcony and a view either of the ocean or pool.
If you are flexible with your dates, or feeling impulsive and like splurging on a spur-of-the-moment weekend getaway, there are a number of options for booking last-minute holiday apartments. Best Western’s website offers a last-minute booking option, meaning you may get a nicer apartment at a cheaper rate.
