Grand Leisure Travel - Saved Their Pocono Trip!

Grand Leisure Travel - Saved Their Pocono Trip!

It’s important to note that not every experience is sunshine and rainbows. Sometimes, expectations can lead to simple misunderstandings and only people who care can help resolve them.

This is what happened to Katrina on her arrival at one of our homes, she arrived late at night and having already been new to the process of renting a vacation home, the home that she booked was not up to her standards. We understand things like this happen and are prepared for it.

Clover's Travels & Adventures

Clover's Travels & Adventures

A few months ago, my 10 year-old pup, Clover, (commonly referred to as my better half) was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Failure (CKF). Based on her blood work, our vet was not confident she would make it past 2018.

With our tails between our legs, Clover and I knew we'd have to make some major changes in order to keep her doggin' around for a lot longer than just one year...

In addition to changing her diet & receiving IV fluid treatment, we thought there would be no better medicine than TRAVEL! Clover's a lover of all things, but especially the outdoors. Together, we knew a weekend in the woods would do us some good.

Just a little over an hour from home, Clover and I trekked up to none other than the Pocono Mountains for one of the best weekends of our lives. 

4 Reasons Why Our Rentals May Not Be A Good Fit For You

As a luxury vacation home rental company, we receive thousands upon thousands of inquiries from all types of people seeking to rent our homes. Through talking to potential renters from the time of their inquiry up until the time of booking, our sales team is responsible for deciding if our home is a good fit for certain renters and if these renters are guests we would like to share our home with.

Before deciding to rent to just anyone, we go through a number of steps to ensure we are booking the right home to the right people. It's not a secret that our homes aren't for everyone. 

Rule 1: Despite any number of parent signatures, we are unable to allow renters under the age of 18 in our homes. While we do accept prom reservations, we ask that all guests provide photo ID to ensure they are of age and are legally able to be in our home.

Rule 2: Yes, we do allow small get-togethers. However, if your group is looking to throw a huge blowout 21st birthday party or a barbecue that includes having a DJ present, our home is probably not for you. Most of our homes are located in residential communities that are home to people all year round. It is important that we respect our neighbors and keep the peace. Additionally, we are constantly renting our homes. Most homes book 2-3 per times per month. Therefore, if major damages occur, it could put other renters at risk for having their reservation cancelled.

Rule 3: Even though we have a few homes that sit on acres and acres of land, we do not permit the use of fireworks. If your group likes to have huge bonfires and set off fireworks, our home is not for you. Once fined, firework usage can cost renters up to $1,000.

Rule 4: Our age policy is strict- if you do not have someone over the age of 25 to sign for your rental, we cannot rent our home to you. Persons under 25 renting our homes are often huge liabilities and risks we are hesitant to take

Chong's Video Review from Beach Resort

Chong's Video Review from Beach Resort

Chong stayed at the Beach Resort this weekend and invited us to do a quick video review. The previous guests took a little metallic duck with them from the living room, but that did not affect Chong's stay. Their group really enjoyed the beautiful kitchen, the hot tub, and the grill. We enjoyed having them in the Pocono's. The winter is just starting up and we love guests like Chong at Grand Leisure Travel!
