Types of Vacation Rentals in Pattaya
There is just about every kind of accommodation type you can think of to suit your needs no matter what they are. Condos and apartments like the Unixx building (photo below) are the most popular type of vacation rentals in Pattaya, but there is also no shortage of homes and luxury villas for rent.
The most basic, and often the cheapest (around 300 baht) type of vacation rental in Pattaya are single room studios, sometimes equipped with a kitchenette. Condos and apartments may be single or multiple bedrooms and usually the renter has access to all the building facilities such as swimming pool, gym, restaurant and so on.
Free-standing holiday homes and villas range from 1 to 10 bedrooms. The style and type of holiday homes and villas available in Pattaya could be a basic 1 bedroom town-house, or it could be a luxury villa complete with its own swimming pool, gym, kitchen, and even a maid service.

The type and style of vacation rentals in Pattaya means there is a diverse price range. A single room studio could cost as little as 300 – 400 baht per day. A luxury villa situated close to the beach could cost upwards of 30,000 baht per day.
Who should consider a Vacation rental in Pattaya
Vacation rentals are a great alternative to hotels for anyone willing to sacrifice the service offered by a hotel. They are a good alternative for large families and groups who wish to stay together. For people traveling with pets the freedom offered by a vacation rental is much less restricting for both pet and owner.
Basically, if you’re looking for something most hotels do not offer, or you want to save money you should consider vacation rentals as an alternative.
Finding Pattaya Vacation Rentals
Here (below) are some of the most popular Pattaya vacation rental booking sites. Like hotel booking sites, you find the same property advertised across several sites.
One of the most common complaints I’ve noticed about vacation rentals is that the renter has arrived at the property at the arranged time and the owner has either not been there to meet them. So, most importantly you should always read the reviews, and always contact the owner prior to booking.
