Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The World'' Most Amazing Vacation Rentals is an unscripted series that showcases properties available for short-term rentals around the world. It's a post-COVID pandemic promotional vehicle for each of the properties, and the logos for each, as well as taxi companies, airlines, and other travel-related companies are visible. The prices charged for properties and amenities are also noted. But the locations are interesting, and the diverse trio of hosts are enthusiastic about, and respectful of, the places they go. There is some drinking, and Airbnb is referenced.
Is It Any Good?
From eco-friendly tree houses in Bali, to a natural cave lodge in the Ozarks, the pleasurable series showcases some of the many, and varied, properties that people can rent for their post-COVID travels. Some of the episodes are country-specific; others are designed to highlight the more popular trends in short-term rentals. They all highlight what makes each rental, based on the desired experience, a great alternative to a hostel or hotel.
The World's Most Amazing Vacation Rentals is a promotional vehicle for each of the properties featured, and it's designed to help reinvigorate the tourism industry, which was decimated by the global pandemic. Much like a travel brochure, it's obvious that everything has been done to highlight the best of what each site has to offer. Nonetheless, the enthusiasm of the hosts, combined with the scenery and local attractions, makes this a fun watch. No doubt travel-hungry viewers will be inspired to dust off their passports and begin planning their next trip.
