Whether you’re looking to explore the Rockies solo, or plan a beach bum vacation with your family, mobile home holidays can afford you the stability of a place you can truly call a home away from home.

After a long day of fun in the sun, who doesn’t want a more comfortable place to retire to?

Because mobile home vacation rentals come fitted with full kitchens, you can save money by not eating out all the time. And unlike an RV trailer, you don’t have to deal with the hassle of connecting into utilities. It’s a pain-free, streamlined way of vacationing so you’re free to explore the area and excitement of your vacation paradise.

Where to go for mobile home holidays

Here we’ll be highlighting the different options available for planning your mobile home holidays. Across the U.S., the options vary with different methods of rental and others factors.

We’ll shine the light on each option with a brief synopsis and how the rental works.


Mobile home holidays aren’t limited to the U.S. As an example, look at this beach haven in Croatia.

Although a small mobile home, at $70 per night, it packs more amenities than a hotel room in the same price range. Plus, you don’t have to worry about hotel neighbors on the other side of your bedroom or above and below you.

This little getaway accommodates up to 5 guests with two bedrooms and one and a half baths. The most magical aspect of all is the mobile home’s placement by the sea. Talk about a serene little haven away from the stress and drama of life.

Each Airbnb listing explains the rental’s refund policy, house rules, and the accessibility of the host.


With more than 2,000,000 rentals in their database, HomeAway is another marketplace worthy of mention. Established in 2005 and based in Austin, the company has since been acquired by Expedia, Inc.

As an example of their mobile home listing, we found this lovely gem in a quaint, quiet Floridan town.

As can be seen in the listing, every stay can be rated by the tenants who stay there. Details of the mobile home are also available – in this case, it’s a two bedroom, two bathroom set up. A full kitchen is in good condition, dishes and linens are provided. According to this listing, “all you need to do is buy groceries.” At $71/night, it’s a much better deal than choosing the limitations of a hotel room.

You may use the app or website to manage your booked stay. It will provide you with information about your rental such as directions and wifi passwords. After your stay, you can leave a review on the app for the mobile home you rented.

Ocean Lakes Property Rentals

Built in 1970 by the Jackson family, Ocean Lakes Property Rentals is home to over 3,435 campsites. They strive to create a family-friendly tourist environment on for your Myrtle Beach vacation.

Among other vacation options on their campground, they offer mobile home rentals. This particular mobile home provides you with three bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms. According to their chart, it can host up to seven people. It’s near the gate area. You’ll have to provide your own linens or rent them for an additional fee.

As you consider renting from Ocean Lakes Property Rentals, consider that rates change based on the seasonal timing. Off season rates will naturally be lower than in season rates. So if you have the flexibility to vacation during the off season, be all means do so.

Either way, for Myrtle Beach, having a complete home to stay in is still a great deal when you hold it up to the cons of a hotel room.

Time to pack your bags!

Renting a mobile home for vacation can save you money while giving you more space to relax indoors. It can also give you a chance to better connect with the locals. If pets are allowed in the mobile home, this gives you greater flexibility as they’ll have a yard to run around in. Free laundry facilities and the ability to cook at home is also a great money-saving perk.

If you’ve found that mobile home vacations have captured your interest in mobile homes, have you considered moving your family to a mobile home park?
