Family Holidays

Why choose Holiday Homes Direct for your Family Holidays?


Holiday Homes Direct advertises a wide selection of privately owned holiday properties to rent directly from the owners. We offer family-friendly holiday homes in over 35 countries so whether you are looking for family holidays abroad in Spain, Portugal, Croatia, Canary Islands or France or a self-catering holiday in Ireland then we have the perfect choice for you.

Self-catering properties are an obvious choice for many family holidays due to the extra space and facilities they provide. As the holiday homes and villas advertised on Holiday Homes Direct are privately owned, they are used by the owners themselves for their holidays and they tend to provide a more comfortable home away from home experience.  Most of these holiday homes include extras like board games, books, and toys for kids which can save families having to bring the ‘kitchen sink on their holiday’.  

When you are dealing with a travel agent you can be placed in one of several apartments or holiday villas in a complex.  Booking your holiday with the owner’s direct gives you the comfort of picking the exact property you are going to be staying in and the facilities that the property has. So often with holidays, you waste the first few days finding out exactly where everything is, which restaurants are family-friendly or where the best beaches are. The owners obviously have a vast knowledge of the property and the area which they can pass onto holidaymakers saving you lots of hard work!


The other main benefit of booking a family holiday with the owners direct is that you can save a lot of money! On average the prices are 40% cheaper than if you book through a travel agent or holiday rental company, so you are guaranteed family holiday deals. The owners are able to keep their costs low because they are handling the reservations themselves and they don’t have to pay large commissions. In addition to this, the low-cost airlines have opened up a lot of markets that traditionally would have been expensive and difficult to get to without booking a package holiday.  Many owners also introduce special offers when they have last-minute availability providing the benefits of a cheap family holiday in good quality accommodation.


Holiday Homes Direct aims to offer a complete, secure and user-friendly website for holiday rentals and we believe that this will offer families the best value for money and a more informed personal experience when booking their family holiday.
