8 Best Rental Houses for Your Bachelorette Party
So you decided that instead of cramping twenty ladies into several hotel rooms, it may be smarter to rent a house for your bachelorette party. This is a great idea as not only will it give you a larger space and more bathrooms for getting ready, but it will also allow all your friends to share the same house. With a rental house you can look for specific houses that have a pool, hot tub, or even a gym and sauna (especially if you have a larger budget). You can also add a private chef, massage therapist, bartender/waitress, and daily maid service, for the ultimate hands-free weekend.
Steps to Renting a House for your Bachelorette Party
The first step would be picking the location where you want to have your bachelorette party. Choosing a place like Las Vegas or New York, you would probaly want to go with the hotel option, as it’s going to be very difficult to find a house that can fit a large group and be near all the action. If however you are choosing a destination like Miami Beach, Palm Springs, or Charleston, you should definitely look into renting a house.
Now that you have the destination selected, the best website to use in finding your dream home for the weekend is Airbnb. This is one of the largest websites for finding a vacation home to rent on a short-term basis (also the most user friendly in our opinion). Airbnb also includes an amazing rental guarantee, so that you can be sure if there is anything wrong with the house you rented, they will find you a place of equal or greater value for the same rate. (even put you up in hotel rooms if required)
When searching airbnb for your bachelorette party rental, you want to make sure you select the location, exact dates, total number of guests, and “entire place” in the search options. With airbnb they also offer single bedrooms, so you want to make sure you select the option for renting an entire house. Once you see the search results, we recommend you start with a higher price range at first and work your way down to a lower amount. Reason being, usually the larger houses with the most amenities will cost the most. If you have a larger group that will also cut down the cost per woman to a very reasonable amount.

Once you find a house you like, make sure you read all the reviews first. If the user is considered a “super host“, then you are in good shape, as they come very well recommended and have booked their house many times.
make sure you select “entire place”
choose the higher end of the pricing scale for the nicest houses with most ammenities
Look for good “reviews” from other travelers and check for “super host” status.
Now that you found the perfect home for your bachelorette party, the next step is securing the location. Airbnb is a very popular website and high quality properties do not stay on the website for long. If it’s a holiday weekend or special event in your location, expect the prices to be a little higher and availability to be less than normal (unless you book 12+ months in advance). Use any major credit card and lock down the rental as soon as possible. You can not split payments but you can put the entire amount on one card (and get the reward points), then have each of your friends venmo you the money owed.
