What is a condo?

Short for “condominium,” a condo is a private residence owned by an individual or family in a small community housing multiple units. Condos may be part of a larger building or detached, though they often share common areas like yards, rec rooms, gyms, garages, and other facilities that are maintained by the complex owner. Condos may be rented out by the owner as a travel accommodation.

Why should I stay at a condo?

Condos are self-contained units with a kitchen, living space, bedrooms, and bathrooms, so they easily accommodate groups of friends or a family for a vacation. With a condo rental, you can enjoy all the amenities provided by the complex, such as a pool or rec center, as well as desirable locations in major cities or near the beach. Condos are also a good choice for groups traveling together who want separate vacation spaces, since they may be found within the same building.


Where do you find condos?

Condos can be found just about anywhere you wish to travel. Beachfront or lakefront condo rentals are incredibly popular, though you can also find condos in major cities, suburbs, and resort areas. One of the best advantages of choosing a condo in a popular tourist destination is the proximity to the attractions and points of interest in the area, such as beaches or theme parks.


How much does it cost to stay in a condo?

Condo rentals can range from inexpensive to extravagant, depending on the amenities you want and the destination you choose. Budget-friendly condos provide the essential amenities, such as a kitchen and community spaces, while luxury condos may offer features like a spa, steam room, private beach access, and more. Condos also give you the option to save more on your trip by splitting the space with a group and cooking your own meals to keep your dining out costs down.

What do condos offer?

In addition to being found in a variety of travel locations, condos range in amenities, size, and features. Condos can range from basic and essential to upscale and luxurious, though most include features like kitchens, laundry facilities, security, and furnishings. From there, you can find condos within a complex that includes indoor or outdoor pools, spas, sports facilities, bars or restaurants, and more.


Condo vs. apartment

When thinking about a condo vs. apartment, it's important to look at the different amenities and physical attributes. The ownership of the 2 differs, however, in that an apartment is housed within a complex and owned by a single entity, whereas a condo is owned by an individual and managed by the owner or the condo community’s homeowner association. Because of this, condos tend to have a more personal touch, updated features, and variety between units than apartments, while often sharing attributes like laundry services, a pool, a gym, a dog park, tennis courts, and more.
