Staycations, or vacations spent at home rather than abroad, have been increasingly popular in recent years as the cost of international travel has increased. 83% of those who took a vacation in 2018 want to do so again in 2022, and 24% have already begun making preparations for their next staycation.
What is it about staycations that people enjoy so much? Well, that depends on a number of factors. Because there are no flights to catch or jet lag to combat, a staycation allows you to kick back and relax on the very first day.
Staying at a hotel or Airbnb is one choice for your next staycation, but staying at home offers a number of advantages. Creating a relaxing outdoor retreat can make staying at home feel like a real vacation.
Here are some suggestions for creating the perfect staycation.
1. Get Wet in an In-Ground Pool
Putting your toes in a hotel pool for the first time is one of the most iconic vacation experiences. And for 26% of American tourists, it’s an absolute must in a hotel.
Creating a resort-like atmosphere at home is as simple as installing an in-ground pool. In addition to being the most cost- and maintenance-efficient alternative over time, fibreglass pools also have a particularly smooth surface, making them exceptionally pleasant to swim in. Adding to this effect is picking a pool layout that has places to sit and chat.
2. Make Your Own Cafeteria Here
Hotel customers greatly appreciate resorts that provide eateries on-site because it eliminates the need to drive and find parking and makes it simple to store any leftovers. In addition to the ease of eating in the comfort of your own lawn, you also get to decide what you eat.
Although the grill is the focal point of an outdoor kitchen, it’s also a good idea to include a built-in fridge for storing food and drinks and drawers for storing cooking tools. The cook will be able to spend more time mingling with guests and less time making trips back and forth from the indoor kitchen.
High-top bars, lounge furniture, and outside patio tables are just some of the seating options available at many resort restaurants. You can keep yourself and your guests comfortable in all weather, including on those hot summer afternoons, by incorporating a variety of these seating options into your outdoor dining room.
3. A hot tub can be used all year long for relaxation.
The in-ground pool season in North-east Ohio often lasts for a good chunk of the year. A hot tub is a great way to unwind on a staycation because you can use it whenever you choose.
Hot tubs, which provide hydrotherapy, have been shown to improve sleep quality, reduce stress and pain, and even boost cardiovascular health. These advantages contribute to the ultimate purpose of a staycation, which is to return to regular life feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Think about getting a spa that is already integrated into the design of your fibreglass pool. Guests may switch from cold to warm water with ease, and homeowners can save time and money by using the same water circulation system for both features with this layout.
