    I mostly stay off site in condos though we did rent a villa once. I don't cook on vacation either but I DO like having a full size fridge for drinks and snacks. I also LOVE having a washer and dryer in the condo so I don't have to pack as much stuff.

    we don't tend to cook in a villa, we just have breakfast there and maybe the odd bbq. The most advantageous part of a villa is the space and privacy. When the kids were little it gave them space to get a good nights rest. Common sense would dictate a villa all the time but i do like being on site too.

    I've always loved hotels but I get bored of them very quickly, especially on a long-haul trip that's usually two weeks or more. After a while, they begin to feel cramped and a little too familiar. I also started to get annoyed with the little things, like finding quarters for the laundry facilities (why on earth aren't these card or room key-capable by now?!), or the 'don't touch that bottled water, it'll cost you $4.50!', but most of all it's the 'you're welcome to have a lie-in, but only if you remembered to hang a sign off your door handle and you're willing to return to your room in whatever state you left it, with no more shower gel, shampoo etc...'

    When I discovered villas, there was no turning back!

    I was at the Baymont Inn and Suites lady weekend and had to wash clothes. The machines took credit cards
