Vacation Rentals App By Dwellable

Spring is here and the weather is just beautiful. It's getting warmer now and many people are already planning their vacation. I stumbled on a really useful app (created by Dwellable) that allows you to search info and pricing on vacation rentals in any location. I enjoy vacations and I immediately had to download this app to my iPhone. Hubby and I are already talking about our next vacation.

I've never thought about looking into vacation rentals before, but thought it would be a new experience to try out. What's the difference between vacation rentals and hotels? I did some research and this is what I learned: With vacation rentals, you get more room and amenities for your travel dollars. Not every hotel room has a full kitchen. Also, you don't have to worry about your check-out times or parking fees. Vacation rentals sound like it is more quieter and more private than a hotel. You might find some hotels are cheaper than others. Preferences may depend on how long you want to stay, how many people in your group and if you prefer a luxurious one or not.


MY REVIEW

I really enjoyed using this app and I get the info right at my fingertips when I need it. The quality images are great! At the opening screen of the app, there's an animated background image of waves on the beachy sand. I thought that was pretty neat and made me imagine going somewhere that has a beautiful beach on a hot sunny day.  The search bar prompts you to enter the location you want to browse or just see all destinations.  Looks like Hawaii has quite a lot of rentals. I decided to see what is available in Maui, Hawaii.



I can filter by price, number of beds, amenity and other options. I can also enter the dates when I arrive and the app will show what rooms are available. There's not a lot of listings as I hope there would be, but hopefully more will be added. I am having fun exploring different locations and places of interest.





The vacation rentals are only USA for now and I hope the developers will expand and include other countries in the future.

Features:
* filter by price, room, amenities, and other options
* lots of photos to view
* includes contact info and email of the homeowner
* detailed description of property
* shows calendar and availability
