Self Catering Holidays – Fabulous for Families 2
This is a continuation of this post Self Catering Holidays – Fabulous for Families
- An self catering information folder, you’ve travelled to a place you’ve never been before. Your holiday home provider should ensure that you have the following information available to you. Their Direct Contact details as well as I.C.E contact details, information on how appliances work in the holiday home e.g oven, washing machine, heating and water, Information on reception times if applicable, a map of the area you are staying, suggested activities and attractions in the local area as well as rainy day recommendations (particularly if holiday in Ireland)
- A washing machine and a clothes dryer in the property. Children go through an awful lot of clothes whether on holiday or even just sitting in front of the T.V! Taking clothes to communal laundry facility means you may wait for a free machine even worse hang around until e clothes are washed and dried. The comfort of having both of these in the self catering holiday home means you can head away for the day come back put them in the dryer and have clean fresh clothes for the kids without having to waste a day.
- Lastly but probably the most important necessity in every self catering holiday home, CLEANLINESS. When it comes to cleanliness we take the approach of ‘Clean Up, Down and Under’. Nothing is more off putting then hair in a shower or dried in food on a baby chair. To ensure your holiday home adheres to a certain standards check that they are registered with the Tourism Authority of the country here it’s Failte Ireland. The highest award a Self Catering Holiday Home can be given is 4 Stars.
Final Word on Self Catering Holidays
To end, Self Catering Family Holiday should be a holiday for all the family mums included. Before you book your self catering holiday ensure that there are no hidden extras such as electricity, cot hire etc and check the exact location of the holiday home you like. Even though I don’t trust the reviews 100% I do believe in the strength of general consensus of what people have to say on Trip Advisor. Hope you find the advice above beneficial and I hope it helps you when booking your Self Catering Holidays.
