We are going to cue you in on the things you should and shouldn’t bring on timeshare getaways. Additionally, we’ve chosen a few great destinations for your next vacation. If you’ve never taken a timeshare getaway before, not to worry, we’ve got you covered.
What is a timeshare getaway? Well by nature, timeshares are designed for maximum luxury, comfort and escape. The getaway part just simply means to travel somewhere new! So, a timeshare getaway combines the best of both worlds: relaxation and travel. What makes these escapes different than other accommodations? Notably, timeshares come with more amenities meaning you may not have to pack as much. You can focus on the relaxing part of vacation since resorts are essentially homes away from homes, designed with great kitchens, bedrooms and living spaces. You can feel the comfort and security of home in a new location.
Packing Light for a Timeshare Vacation
If you’re about to stuff the suitcases, we recommend reading these tips first to save your suitcase space (so there’s room for souvenirs on the way home).
One of the great things about timeshares is that they generally come fully equipped with a washer and dryer set-up so you won’t have to bring ten extra sets of clothes, rather, you can wash them in house.
Timeshares also provide towels, and some even come stocked with kitchen supplies (i.e. pots and pans, not food!) This means you can cook in the kitchen, and you won’t have to haul any extra supplies in your suitcase for the nights you decide to dine in. Not to mention, many resorts have gorgeous on-site restaurants ready to serve you. This means you won’t have to go too far for delicious food on nights you don’t want to cook.
Now that you know some of the benefits of packing light, let’s take a look at some gorgeous resorts with amenities perfect for timeshare getaways.
