Multi-Generational Travel Will Be The Trend For 2021

The global COVID-19 pandemic has prevented many families from getting together, to the dismay of grandparents worldwide! With the virus leading to canceled vacations and trips, families are looking forward to a time when all generations can reconnect safely. Before the pandemic, multi-generational family travel was a growing trend, and that’s why we expect it to be even more popular in 2021!

The 2021 Vrbo Trend Report says that, while travel slowed down due to the pandemic, planning did not. In fact, the report found that 82 percent of families already had travel plans for 2021.

For many, the emotional benefits of travel and the anticipated connection with family members are outweighing the risks of contracting the virus. Vrbo’s survey respondents said that they believed that travel would improve mental health and considered it a form of self-care.

If you are one of the families planning a trip and you are looking for somewhere that everyone can stay comfortably, vacation homes are the answer! Because Kong Vacation Homes is family owned and operated, we understand that that each member of your family - from seniors to infants - has different needs. That’s why we provide amenities and accommodations that make our single-family rental homes in Tampa Bay and Hallandale Beach, Florida, ideal for family getaways.

Experts agree that private rental homes are a safer option for your family vacation than a crowded hotel. At a vacation home, your family has the sole use of the property, minimizing interactions with people outside of your social bubble and maximizing your safety. That’s something that every generation can feel good about!

Also, Kong Vacation Homes is taking part in Airbnb’s new Enhanced Cleaning Initiative, which was developed in partnership with experts in health and hospitality. We follow this enhanced cleaning protocol, including the use of disinfecting products approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), thoroughly sanitizing homes before and after occupancy, and keeping extra supplies on hand for you, to create a healthy living environment for your family.

When you enter your Kong Vacation Homes rental, you’ll find a cleaning checklist from our staff, letting you know that the home is safe and sanitized. Even when it’s not a time of pandemic, the upkeep of our properties is a priority, and impeccably clean homes are always our goal.

Another benefit of vacation homes for your multi-generational family is the amenities. When you rent from Kong Vacation Homes, you will find fully stocked kitchens, in-home washers and dryers, spacious living areas, large dining spaces, and individual bedrooms and bathrooms, allowing every family member to stay in comfort. Some homes also have pools/hot tubs, outdoor living areas, and fenced yards.

There really is something for every generation at Kong Vacation Homes. For the kids, we offer smart TVs and gaming systems. Mom and Dad will love the smart home upgrades throughout the property, with automatic systems to control lighting, climate, entertainment, and even security. And, grandparents will appreciate the extra space and private rooms for a peaceful retreat. Your family’s pet is welcome to stay at Kong Vacation Homes, too!

Because all Kong Vacation Homes feature smart home technology, we also provide contactless check-in and check-out. Your family will receive a personal access code to use as a virtual key. By offering low-contact accommodations, this is just one more safeguard for your family!
