Seven “Kid Cool” Vacation Homes

Vacations are for having fun, and where you stay should reflect that. No one knows how to have fun more than kids do, so finding a rental home that caters to their interests could make for the best vacation yet. Whether you have kids or are looking to awaken the kid inside you, you will appreciate that these homes bring the fun.

The Treehouse Adventure

Treehouse rental house

What could be more fun than spending your vacation in a treehouse fully equipped with a slide to get outside? The adults will be happy that it is also equipped with plumbing and a full kitchen, unlike the paltry treehouses of yore. This one even comes with Wi-Fi, but it’s possible that your kids will forget their devices even exist when they are having so much fun in this treehouse home in the Netherlands. The park also has a giant playground for children complete with water games and a tree fortress for hours of outdoor fun, and an indoor pool with a water slide for when the weather takes a turn for the worse.

Family Fun in the Desert

Palm Springs vacation rental

In Palm Springs, California, you’ll find an oasis of family fun with this five-bedroom home, where the backyard alone will blow your kids’ minds. They’ll splash around in the underground pool by day, and enjoy the gas fire pit by night. The good times continue indoors in the game room, complete with a ping-pong table and a pool table. A bonus? If your kids won’t be able to have a blast without Fido, this house allows fur babies to come along for the trip.

Live in the Most Magical Place on Earth

Orlando vacation rental

To be fair, putting a rental home in Orlando is sort of cheating in the whole “kid cool” category. Your children probably don’t need any convincing to head on a vacation that includes the world-famous theme parks. But this house is no slouch, and earned its “kid cool” title on its own: the private pool and hot tub make a day at home magical in its own right, and it even has fun underwater lights for night swimming. Inside, you’ll find a billiards table for a family tournament.

The House of Six Themes

Charleston vacation rental, Ocean Boulevard 914

You’ve probably never been anywhere quite like this home in the islands of Charleston, South Carolina. This bright yellow mansion welcomes up to 20 people for a unique family reunion, and includes a private oceanfront pool with two kiddie pools, a hot tub, and an outside shower. But the inside is where things get truly funky. Each room has a theme of its own: take the western themed den with a pool table, the pirate themed living room, a jungle themed bedroom complete with a ceiling full of greenery, a ‘Locker Room’ bedroom for the sports enthusiast, or The Hollywood Room that immortalizes the silver screen. A new adventure awaits in each new room.

The Theater Cabin

Smoky Mountains cabin rental

It’s hard to choose the best feature of this cabin in the Smokies. Is it the theater room, equipped with two rows of leather reclining seats? Or the wooden deck overlooking the forest below, complete with a hot tub? Or, the indoor, underground pool? And, don’t forget the billiards table set beneath cathedral-style wooded ceilings. Plus, with a fun-packed amusement park, Dollywood, ten miles away, this house is a winner for kids and adults alike.

The Skateboarder's Dream

kid-friendly vacation home

Does your kid love hopping on their board and cruising around? This London pad is enough to keep them entertained all vacation long. The home features a bedroom designed to look like a skate park, with a ramp and an impressive wall mural. They can bunk with their siblings for late night fun, thanks to the loft double bed. For even more entertainment, the home also features a play area with a foosball table, ping pong and a large corner sofa facing a large-screen TV connected to a PlayStation. Outside, there's an impressive tree fort. Let the London fun begin!

The Ultimate Kids Sleepover Party

Park City rental home, 2071 Solamere Drive

Tucked in the mountains of Park City, Utah is this gorgeous home with five bedrooms, which include sets of bunkbeds that will make for the “best sleepover ever” for your kids, their cousins, and their friends. In the kitchen, a huge island bar can seat ten kids all at once for some snacks and cookies. After a day on the slopes, all they’ll need is some grub, a warm fireplace, and some sleep to complete the family getaway.

Breckenridge rental home

Another ski country home is this one in Breckenridge, Colorado, that includes a bunk room with an air hockey table.
