It’s hard to keep the little ones entertained all day when school is on break – especially if you live in an area where the weather’s still cold. Put one of these five family-friendly vacation rental homes on kid duty, and give yourself a break too. From game rooms, pools and in-home theaters, there’s plenty of entertainment to go around with these spring break family-friendly vacation ideas:
The Good Place in Palm Springs, California
This three-bedroom home in Palm Springs has plenty of space for everyone to spread out. Stock the kitchen with popsicles and enjoy the desert heat. The home features a private outdoor pool and patio where the kids will surely set up camp. Lounge poolside with a good book while they splash around, grill up some hot dogs and hamburgers, and then use the fire pit for some s’mores. The home’s pet friendly, so Fido can come too.
Mountain Theatre Lodge in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee
Head to the mountains with a log cabin rental in Tennessee that offers all the comforts of home. Bring along family and friends to this six-bedroom cabin that’s close to Dollywood and Pigeon Forge’s area entertainment. The kids will love the loft, which features two double-sized log beds with a catwalk over to the game room, which offers foosball and air hockey. Arcade games, a theater room and shuffle board rule out boredom, while bench-style seating in the kitchen helps you feed the masses.
Bahama Bay Resort in Orlando, Florida
Hit the theme parks while saving some money with a nearby villa rental. Bahama Bay Resort offers two- and three-bedroom villas combined with the amenities of a full-service resort. A heated swimming pool, sports courts and a children’s play area will keep the little ones entertained, while two on-site restaurants let you take a break from cooking. You can also enjoy fishing off the resort’s full-sized dock on Lake Davenport or explore one of the nature trails.
Together Again in Gulf Shores, Alabama
The name says it all at this six-bedroom, Gulf-front home on West Beach. Get the whole group together with a coastal retreat, and let the kiddos bond with sleepovers in the bunk room. The home opens right up to beach for some fun in the sun, and a shaded sand box under the house gives little ones space to build. There’s a swing too, for watching their imaginations at work. A TV area inside is perfect for movie night, while a game area invites a round of Go Fish. (They’ll love the big seahorse on the front of the house, too).
Ocean Boulevard 904 in Isle of Palms, South Carolina
This ocean view home is steps from the beach and every kid’s dream. Themed rooms range from The Cat House, The End Zone and Monkey Business to The Dinosaur Den and The Sponge Bob Square Pants Room. Let the kiddos pick their favorite spots before heading out to lounge by the private pool and kiddie pool. Neon patio furniture adds to the home’s fun, along with a lookout lens located on the third floor balcony. Inside, amenities like WiFi, flat-screen TVs and a pool table add to the entertainment.
