What Kind of Amenities Should I Look for in a Community?

Vacation homes are in higher demand than ever before. Travelers want the freedom to get away with the reassurance that they will safely be able to do so. That is where vacation homes come in.

By purchasing a vacation home, travelers enjoy the comforts of home and the peace of mind that comes from knowing that they live there — and that they keep it safe and clean. Vacation homes are so popular right now that buyers can afford to be picky and keep searching until they find the perfect one.

For a vacation home that meets your standards and then some, look for the homes and communities with the best amenities.

Walking Trails

“Walking improves fitness, cardiac health, alleviates depression and fatigue, improves mood, creates less stress on joints and reduces pain, can prevent weight gain, reduce the risk for cancer and chronic disease, improve endurance, circulation, and posture, and the list goes on…,” world athlete and yoga instructor, Ann Green, tells NBC News. Enjoy all these benefits and more by seeking out communities with scenic walking trails.

Wine Making

Have you always dreamed of making your own wine? Stop dreaming, and start doing. Choose vacation homes that work with wineries to teach their residents how to make wine and produce one-of-a-kind vintages.

Stargazing Lounge

Your vacation home should feel like a truly luxurious place to be. By choosing communities with stargazing lounges, you can make your getaway and your home-away-from-home truly extraordinary.

Dog Parks

An overwhelming 98% of pet owners describe their dogs as “part of the family,” according to Business Wire. Don’t leave any of your family members home! Keep your loyal pup right by your side during your entire stay at your vacation home. Buy a vacation home with dog-friendly amenities, like walking trails and dog parks.

Swimming Pools

Over one-third of vacation homes purchased in 2017 (36%) were located near the beach. Enjoy all the perks of living in a beachside neighborhood and owning a home with a pool. Head out to the pool and relax within just minutes. Soak up the sun without venturing too far from home.

Fitness Centers

For those who spend extended amounts of time in vacation homes, retaining some level of fitness while you are away is important to your physical and mental well-being. Find communities that prioritize your fitness routine just as much as you do. There are plenty of vacation homes available with well-rounded fitness centers that will keep you fit during your stay.

If you are in the market for a new vacation home, work with a custom home builder to build in a community — or search for an existing home — with the very best amenities. Don’t settle for less.
