Since 2020, vacation rental properties grew in popularity at a steady rate and are expected to continue rising into 2022. New York University and the Family Travel Association conducted a study and found a growing trend in vacation rental properties throughout the pandemic. The study noted vacation rentals surged in popularity because they required fewer touchpoints, allowed for longer stays and often included kitchens for guests to prepare their own food.


As 2022 begins and vacation rentals remain a coveted form of leisure travel, finding the right vacation rental property is essential to enjoying your travels, wherever they may be. East West Hospitality, with more than 3,400 residences and vacation rentals throughout Colorado, California and Hawai’i, invite you to stay at one of these luxurious properties.
