Maybe they have a big family, and there is not so much room for you. Maybe they are relaxed about their living arrangements? While you can't sleep anywhere unless it's spotless? Maybe you are someone that thrive on having their own personal space and the thought of not being able to get away from your loved ones give you the chills?

Well, if that is the case, it's best to get a holiday rental near to, but not too close to your friends or relatives place. This means it's will be easy to pop and see them anytime.
