Truly Family Friendly Accommodation in Graaff-Reinet
Being a family means going through seasons. Baby season becomes the messy toddler season, which leads to the ever-so-busy pre-teen season. Finding accommodation that suits the ever-changing needs of your family can be a challenge.
What Makes a Guest House Family Friendly?
The location of your accommodation is very important. Choosing a guest house in an unsafe area could put your loved ones, belongings, and entire trip in jeopardy. It is in your best interest to find out a little about the neighbourhood of your guest house before you book. The security of the establishment is of the utmost importance. Can anyone on the street get easy access to the premises? Does your unit have an alarm system? Do the windows have burglar bars and the doors security gates?
Ensure the accommodation you book is large enough for your family. Being crammed into a too-small unit will inevitably lead to sleepless nights and lots of frustration. It might be a good idea for the teenagers to have a separate bedroom. If at all possible, consider booking a separate unit for them next door to yours – with their own TV and bathroom. Toddlers and small children are a different matter. You probably want them in the same unit to keep a wary eye. Booking open-plan accommodation where the whole family sleeps in one sleep area might be the key to a good night’s rest.
After a long day on the road, everyone enjoys stretching their legs. Younger members of the family need some space to roam in safety. Be sure to ask if the accommodation you have in mind faces the street or a garden area. Having little ones within a few steps of a street is certainly a deal-breaker. Trivial things are important when you have children, such as plastic cutlery for toddlers, cots and baths for babies, Wi-Fi for teenagers, and sports channels for Dad.
