My wife really nailed it this past August.
She’s always in charge of finding the place we’re going to stay during our annual family vacation.
We like to go back to the same beach town that we’ve been going to for a long time. Actually, my wife and I went on our first vacation as a couple in that little beach town. It’s the sort of place that you don’t want to just stay inside the air conditioning of a hotel room when you’re not playing in the ocean. There’s a lot to do in this little place but it’s all pretty close and easily accessible. But we stopped staying in a hotel room quite a while back. With the kids, it just makes so much more sense to get a full on vacation home rental. And so my wife has always been the one in charge of finding the perfect place. And she’s just so good at it. This year topped all the other years when it came to the sort of vacation rental we got. For me, it doesn’t take much to keep me happy on vacation. I need a clean place to lay my head, great air conditioning and great food. Outside of that, I’m pretty easy. The place my wife found this year had the best residential HVAC I’ve ever experienced. It had zone control HVAC throughout the house so we even had a thermostat in our bedroom. On top of that, there was a smart thermostat that always knew our patterns and we came home to a wonderfully cooled down home after we’d been on the beach all day. I know it’s mid January but I’m already thinking about getting back to that vacation rental next year.
