It’s almost unheard of these days to simply book into a hotel or motel, when away on vacation, seeing as though renting from the owners of the actual vacation accommodation spaces have proven to be that much more cost effective, in the long run. Consider checking out these 10 amazing Vrbo vacation rentals that are under 200 USD and are perfect for a family of four (two adults and two children).

1. The Waterside Cottage: an aquatic oasis on the Bayou Grande (from 153 USD)

This picture-perfect waterfront abode beckons to any traveler, vacationer and regular old Joe alike - as it has all that is needed, in one place. Take full advantage of your vantage point and explore the Bayou Grand by way of your kayak, or grab yourself a stand-up paddle board, and the like, to enjoy your surrounds to the max.

You’ll be able to quickly launch yourself into the Bayou waters from the backyard dock of The Waterside Cottage, a great feature - which opens up a whole new world to visitors indeed. A welcome retreat is found in this backyard area of the cottage, and with the sequestered nature of the backyard dock, it will be of little wonder when you end up spending most of your time frequenting this area.

Apart from the vistas, attractions and novelties, this cottage comes complete with all the general amenities: high speed wireless internet, cable TV, AC and heating, a dishwasher, fridge, washer & dryer, barbecue grill, and ice maker.

With its Queen size bed, 2 rocking chairs, sofa and an inflatable mattress - there is no doubt that comfort is in mind here. Clearly you’ll get a first-hand experience of being able to ‘switch off’ and vacation away, while still being 'switched on’ to all your technological outlets and social media platforms.
