StayCay – Rental, Service and Inspiration
StayCay started with a belief in slowing down and focusing on important things; family, health, nature and being. Taking a vacation requires a cost/benefit analys that should not only consider a financial cost but a efficiency analys. For example, a vacation can be spent on an exotic island or it can be as simple as staying at home and visiting places and people we care about – a staycation.
To be sure, undertaking a journey across the world is an indulgence rather than a necessity. It is a great way to expand our knowledge about the world and experience social interactions we would otherwise miss. Yet, these experience cost money and a tremendous about of time. Think about the endless hours spent searching for the best place to visit at the best price. Consider, the time it takes to pack, find someone to look after the place (watch the family pet), fix passports and visa applications, waiting in security lines and last but not least wasting time with entertainment systems while sitting on the airplane. Don’t forget unpacking and washing when you get home. I think you get my point, it is not only an indulgence of money but time.
A staycation on the other hand, allows you to save on accommodations and travel but also time and energy. By staying ‘home’, you have money over for the activities you want and time to be with the people you have been missing while rushing off to work.
A middle option, somewhere between exotic vacations and staying at home, is the family cabin. The place were we can ‘just be’ and indulge in the hobby we cherish. Yet, owing a family cabin is not only an economic luxury, it can also be a social liability for many extended families. How many times have you heard how the family cabin has been the catalyst for many uncomfortable or non-existent family visits?
