The idea of staying in a luxury apartment for your next trip is a great one. You don’t give yourself much time for a vacation. Now that you finally have the chance, you should make the most of it. There are a lot of choices when it comes to luxury apartments and you should find one with the qualities and amenities that you want. Before you finally sign an agreement, here are things you need to remember.
Determine the budget
The general rule should be the total amount that you are spending for your vacation accommodation should not go beyond 30% of the total budget. Luxury apartments can be very costly so you need to be careful in terms of your budget. However, it does not mean you have to settle for inferior options. If you are travelling as a group, you have to make adjustments to your calculations.
Find the best place to search
You can check online ads, apartment hunting sites, and review sites. You can also use comparison sites so you will find out what the advantage of one option is over another. There are review sites offering ideas regarding discounts and promotions as well. It also helps if you ask those who have visited the place where you are travelling to and also booked apartments in the area. They will give you honest reviews of the place.
Check the information of the owner
When renting an apartment, you will more often than not deal with a project manager and not the owner. But that doesn’t mean you won’t need information from the owner, and the property manager will liaise on your behalf with the owner for this. The apartment will be a part of a strata title, therefor you’ll need to know any strata laws that the strata management company has introduced. These will change depending on the building the apartment is in, so it’s essential information, but they will also tell you when the common areas will be cleaned, when the bins will be emptied and how to request repairs for common areas in the building.
Check what amenities and services are provided
You should also know what else you are getting aside from the apartment itself. Will the electric and water bills be separate? Do they have a swimming pool and a fitness gym? Will they provide room service when needed? You want to stay in a luxury apartment for comfort, so if everything you need is there, you won’t mind paying more.
Read all the small print
Once you have found the best place to stay, you need to read the contract before you sign. You need to understand the rules such as whether you are allowed to cook or not or if you can bring your pets with you.
