Have you and your family ever shared a vacation house with another family?
If so, was it a positive, fun experience or a disaster? Please give specifics as to why it worked well or was stressful.
We have gone vacationing with friends a couple of times; each time with a different family. In fact, my children love this arrangement as they will have company. We always chose families with children the same age as ours, besides having similar tastes and views. I think, that is the reason why they are our friends. On each occasion, we stayed in twin villa-type accommodation with common living area. This gives both families privacy as well as easy access. If planned well, this is an excellent arrangement.
We shared a condo with people in Myrtle Beach , SC when I was a kid. It was so much fun!!!
For many years I and my husband (and daughter when she lived with us) shared vacation homes and rentals with another family. We still do it now that we're empty-nesters, even though they aren't yet. We love doing it because we have SO much fun together!
Yeah numerous times.
We usually shared a house at the beach with a family and it worked out perfect.
You really have to decide what kind of people you all are. For example all of us were laid back so everyone just did their own thing.
Breakfast and Lunch everyone just ate something light and then for dinner the men had a barbecue while the women made salad, potatoes etc.
It was really fun for me because I am an only child and and the other family had more children for me to hang out with because lets face it what teenager wants to spend his summer vacation just with his parents.
I would never do that, and I might not even share with my own family.
When I was a kid, I, my parents and my close relatives who are also typical nuclear families. We went to a resort near the amusement park which is very far away from our homes. We all stayed in the resort and had a lot of fun-swimming, playing games, dining, chatting and all. Next day, we all went to the amusement park and had the whale of a time there. It was really an enjoyable experience!
Yes and it was wonderful. We are still speaking. See my hubs
