My family and I just spent a week in a fantastic vacation rental in North Carolina. The view was awesome, the kitchen was spectacular, the beds comfy, and the neighborhood perfect. Couldn’t have asked for anything more, well, maybe an instruction manual on how to run the hot tub.
One of the main criteria we have for a perfect vacation rental is that it has to have a hot tub. On an apples to apples basis we’ll go with the one with a hot tub over the one without a hot tub 100% of the time, even if it’s more expensive. It’s a no brainer. But, what can put me in a mood to take another tub is when the tub has no instructions. I know, I know, call be a baby, but it’s enough to prune my skin when I can’t figure out how to get the damn thing running properly.
Each time we jumped in the tub it turned into another experiment on “what does this button do?” And each time I told myself to get out of the tub, go online and find the answer. Well, I didn’t do it. I should have and I didn’t. I’m sure 15 minutes on the net and I could have saved myself time and frustration but when I set my mind to going to the hot tub the last thing I want to do is surf the net for answers.
The simple answer is to have the instructions either at the tub itself or in the house book.
How would you have solved the problem?

You may be an early bird like me or a night owl like my kids. To me “sleeping in” is to wake up after 6 AM. Today, for example, I woke before, and was up and at ‘em, by 4 AM. (As I write this, it’s not even six yet.) On the other hand, I doubt I’ll see my oldest son before noon. It is much easier, and creates a better vacation experience, staying in a vacation rental where everyone can rise and fall on their regular schedules – in their own rooms.
Short and sweet on this (early) Sunday morning!
