Thanks to non-traditional room and home rentals in Texas, like Airbnb and VRBO, vacations no longer have to be spent in just some hotel room. Texas is home to some pretty epic rentals that you may have never known existed.

With Spring upon us and Summer around the corner, many folks will be taking to the Texas roads for some vacation time. But instead of booking a stay at a hotel room, check some of these epic Airbnb and VRBO destinations.

What makes an Airbnb or VRBO rental unique?

I would have to say the amount of privacy you get with either a VRBO or Airbnb is second to none. My wife and I have stayed in both and each one offers up a more private experience with all of the amenities you would get in a hotel. Heck, I've even stayed in a Clyde VRBO before just to get some pool time with the kids.

You might shell out a little bit more cash, but the design of the homes and the privacy you get are priceless. Completely worth it.

I definitely would rather stay in an Airbnb or VRBO than a hotel these days.
