When choosing between a house or a condo for your beach vacation, it's important to understand how the two differ. Each offers its own unique vacation rental experience.

Here's The Difference Between A Condo And A House

Meyer Vacation Rentals manages both condos and houses for vacationers to rent for their beach vacation. The two provide uniquely different vacation experiences. Read on to learn how to make the most appropriate selection for your family's beach vacation.



Houses Vs. CondosA condominium rental is located in a multi-unit complex. While units are individually owned, property owners and their guests share access to common spaces and amenities like pools, fitness rooms, etc.

Meyer manages more than 900 condos and 200 houses along the Gulf Coast area that includes Gulf ShoresFort Morgan and Orange Beach, Alabama, and Perdido Key, Florida.

The selection of houses varies in size, the number of bedrooms and the number of people they can accommodate. Some houses have only a single bedroom and are right-sized for romantic getaways or a small family, while others have as many as 10 or even 20 bedrooms and can accommodate up to 56 people.

Regardless of whether you select a house or a condo and regardless of the number of people it can accommodate, each property has its own unique features and décor and includes fully equipped kitchens, living areas, and private bedrooms and bathrooms.

Meyer-managed houses feature a range of amenities. Some have their own pools while others are located in a neighborhood and offer access to a community pool. Some have elevators for ease of loading in and out.

While all of Meyer’s beach houses focus on the essentials needed by vacationing families such as fully equipped kitchens and washers and dryers, some owners have opted to reach beyond the fundamentals and offer extras such as gourmet kitchens, barbecue grills, and icemakers.

Choose a beach house for your vacation experience. Choose a beach condo for your vacation experience.
