Lake Havasu Vacation Rentals

By Jennifer Weiss

Located on the eastern shore of Lake Havasu, Lake Havasu City is the perfect vacation destination for anyone looking to get away from a hectic life and retreat into an outdoor vacationerís paradise. This area has all the attractions an outdoor enthusiast could possibly desire, including a state park and wildlife refuge for hiking and a lake that supports water sports of any nature.

If you are at home on the water, head down to Lake Havasu and participate in all the activities this lake has to offer. Whether you prefer good old-fashioned exercise with a kayak or a canoe or would rather experience the power of a motor boat or waverunner, this lake can easily entertain all of your desires. With a capacity of 648,000 acre-feet, anyone who wants to spend a day out on the lake can be accommodated no matter what activity they decide they would like to engage in that particular day.

Since many visitors are coming from afar, it is not plausible for most of them to bring their own watercraft. If you want to spend a day or weekend out on Lake Havasu, it is easy to rent a watercraft that meets all your needs. If you have a large group and simply want to cruise around the lake with your family, try a pontoon boat. If you prefer a little more speed and would like to take the kids tubing or teach them how to water-ski, then you can rent a regular powerboat, a ski boat or, for those who really want speed around the lake, a jet boat. If you want some excitement with a companion, try chasing the waves in a jet ski or waverunner. While jet skis are fun for adults and older children, always remember to be careful since jet skis are not toys and misuse can lead to serious injury.

When you come for a vacation on the lake, it is obvious that you would want to be as close to the beauty and action as possible. A short, direct walk to the lake and the boat launch would be the most convenient option, and a Lake Havasu vacation rental gives you this luxury with all the amenities of home. When you stay in a Lake Havasu condo you are close to shopping, golf courses, restaurants, and the lake. However, if you need to recuperate from a bad sunburn, you can stay at your home away from home and relax with all the comforts you would enjoy in your own home. Donít feel like going out? Head out back to the picnic area and light the grill as the rest of the family relaxes in and around the pool.

Lake Havasu is definitely a family destination with its beautiful beaches, nature trails, and wildlife refuge. Children will love seeing the different animals at the Havasu National Wildlife Refuge after spending the morning playing on the beach and in the sand. With a large family, however, it can be difficult to fit everyone into a hotel room and once everyone becomes separated, it begins to feel less like a family vacation. With a Lake Havasu vacation house, there is enough space to fit every member into the same general area without feeling cramped and like you are stepping all over each other. You can enjoy family activities in the backyard or park your boat in the garage if you were able to bring it on the trip. Arguments over what kind of restaurant to go to will be a thing of the past since you can head to the local grocery store and get each person the food they are craving. A vacation rental eases some of the unavoidable headaches associated with traveling so you and your family can focus on relaxing and spending quality time together.

When planning a vacation to Lake Havasu City, you may think you only have the usual, unaccommodating lodging options, but consider a vacation rental for your trip and you may be pleasantly surprised by the outcome. Enjoy all the amenities that your home away from home has to offer as you and your family conveniently reside near the lake. Head out back to your private pool, light the grill, or take your boat out of the garage. Whatever you want to do, your Lake Havasu vacation rental is sure to be an accommodating host.

I have stayed in a couple of vacation rentals in the past couple of years and really enjoyed the experiences. I found a couple of sites particularly helpful, but I definitely think http://www.homeaway.com is the most comprehensive and complete resource for vacation rentals. Check out Lake Havasu Condos if you are planning on visiting Lake Havasu and want an alternative lodging option.
