Holiday Homes

A type of accommodation ordinarily offered for holiday vacations, rented out only as a single unit (irrespective of the number of rooms in the premises) and made available for short and medium duration stays. Such properties are medium to small sized houses or cottages, having four or less bedrooms. Units listed in this category on our Platform may or may not have a round-the-clock staff but most of them offer basic house-keeping services. They may offer services like breakfast, other meals, tea and snacks. The exact details of the amenities and facilities at each Holiday Home are detailed on the property’ listing page on our Platform. Holiday Homes offer some distinct advantages for vacationing families and groups of four or more individuals vacationing together. Having the complete premises to yourself enables the highest level of privacy, many such accommodations enable you to cook your own meals and you are not compelled to buy each and every meal. From pricing point of view, it can be a bargain if your family or group size matches well with the type of accommodation offered.

Hotels

Most sought after accommodations

Offto defines “Hotels” as commercial establishments providing lodging, meals and other guest services. To be categorized as a Hotel, an establishment must have a minimum of eight letting bedrooms, majority of which must have attached (ensuite) private bathrooms. Establishments listed with us as Hotels will typically have a restaurant on their premises and have a managed reception area. In many vacation destinations in Pakistan, you may experience a limited availability of hotels. But when you are able to check-in at a well-organized hotel, it ensures that the guests will have comfort, security and entertainment on the hotel premises, while they are not exploring the attractions surrounding them.

Guest Houses

Local Host, Local Dost

Mansions, Villas and Houses that may have been originally built as residential accommodation but have been modified into premises that now offer independent rooms to let for short stays to multiple guests simultaneously. Guest Houses operate exactly like a Hotel but offer a more personalized experience to their guests. They will typically consist of less than eight independent bedrooms to let but more than three rooms. Such accommodation may or may not have a designated reception area and a restaurant, but all Guest Houses offer breakfast, tea and snacks. The amenities and facilities that a specific Guest House offers are very clearly detailed on its property page on our Platform. A Guest House can be a very different experience from any other type of accommodation. Since they have lesser capacities to accommodate guests. As a result, the level of service can be very personalized and attentive. Some Guest Houses in Pakistan are passionate projects of their owners with great attention to detail in fixtures and furnishing in the bedrooms, as well as the common areas. In other instances, a guest house can be a better alternative in pricing and be easier to book in peak tourist season.
