What started in strictly resort areas is now branching out into all major metropolitan areas. Most of the larger worldwide hotel chains now sell condo hotel residence.

Much of the condo hotel market in the U. S. started in Florida. The residences there command 600,000-800,000 for a studio. I bedrooms start around $750,000. $1,000,000. 2 Bedrooms Start over the 1,000,000 price range.

These permanent residences feature all the furnishings and amenities of a luxury hotel such as world-class restaurants, 24-hour concierge, security, valet, housekeeping, and room service.

Joel Greene of the Condo Hotel Center says a rental option provided by the condo hotel management company allows owners to receive a portion often about 50 percent of the rental income of their specific unit when away.

Taylor says developers favor waterfront, mountainside, and downtown areas with strong demand for upscale lodging. Myrtle Beach, S.C.; South Florida; and Las Vegas have fast-growing condo-hotel markets that favor high-end travelers and boomers looking for a high-amenity pied–terre. Chicago, Washington D.C., and Phoenix are starting to get in on the condo hotel market, the most notable is the Trump Building in Chicago, studios are starting at $800,000.

Boomers are looking for a vacation lifestyle of spacious accommodations, dining activities, and entertainment, Taylor says. They demand extra services and luxurious amenities.

Heres how the Condo hotel concept works. You purchase a condo/hotel in a world class hotel. Use the residence whenever you like. When your away, put the residence in the hotels rental program and share the revenue with the hotel. The hotels management company takes care of all the management issues such as cleaning, renting and maintaining.

These residences offer the best of both worlds, a hassle free residence in a world class luxury hotel with rent revenue that you receive helps offset the costs of owing a 2nd or 3rd home. As well as the potential for appreciation.

Our ancestors had summer kitchens, outdoor structures used in good weather to prevent overheating in the house. These days we use our gas grills for outdoor cooking, but unlike a summer kitchen the grill lacks kitchen features. This forces us to trek back and forth with food platters, beverages, dishes and condiments. We’re still preparing and cleaning up in the kitchen and it’s just not as leisurely as we planned. Enter the island grill, a complete outside meal preparation unit. Like a kitchen island, an Island Grill in Virginia Beach offers a full range of features designed to make cooking easy and convenient.

For most barbecue cooks a primary frustration is lack of counter space. It’s annoying and even dangerous to juggle tools and food around a hot grill. Island grills have a spacious area to prepare and cook your outdoor meals in safety. There’s under-counter storage for your dishes and cooking tools. Many models include refrigerators with space for food, beverages and condiments. Some versions have the option of a warming drawer which lets you barbecue early and enjoy being with your guests. Complete your outdoor cooking space with side burners or griddles to cook anything outdoors!

Now you have everything but your kitchen sink, but even that can be arranged. Beverage centers for island grills contain sinks, ice and bottle storage and even blenders. For clean up, paper towel dispensers and trash disposal drawers are very handy.

Safety may be a concern with an integral gas grill in an island constructed with flammable material. Check that the island you choose is protected from the grill’s heat with an insulated grill liner or jacket meeting National ANSI standards. Also, if you’re grilling in a covered patio, consider installing a vent hood specifically designed for outdoor use. These improve airflow and quality in your outdoor eating area.

The range of size and features for outdoor island grills is impressive. There are compact units that arrive “knocked down” in panels for ease of installation and others with multiple islands that can be configured like a true outdoor living space. The best retailers carry a full selection and will provide you with a grilling island customized to your needs.

To make your outdoor eating experiences much more leisurely and enjoyable, contact East Coast Leisure. They will offer you an Island Grill in Virginia Beach.

I have recently come back from what I can only describe as the most relaxing and interesting vacation I have ever been on. This year myself and my wife were looking at holiday options and based on a recommendation by some friends we thought that a trip to Ireland might give us a dose of culture and scenery. I had only ever heard good things about the country, so we started planing. We were informed that the best way to see the real Irish countryside was by boat, cruising on the river Shannon which runs through the center of the entire country. So we did our research and booked a cruiser from a little town called Banagher. We had never operated a boat before but we were given a brief class beforehand which made everything easy.

We booked the cruiser for three nights, we thought that this would allow us time to see the rest of the country and it did. The rest of the country was fantastic but the truth is I never wanted to leave that boat. The river is full of history covering three thousand years, the ruins of churches, abbeys, castles and towers are everywhere and free to explore. Not far from Banagher is the ruins of an ancient seventh century city which you can cruise right up to and walk around. It was all very extraordinary. You will never be cruising for long without meeting a lovely village and stopping in at a pub. One pub we visited was 350 years old and the old part of the bar was preserved from this time. Another small village had huge deserted stone buildings and military towers. A local told us this was in case Napoleon was to attack England by coming through Ireland. All of these structures still stand like ornaments on the landscape passed down through generations until there meaning has been eroded to just spectacular sites. Cruising by low lying green meadows to the sweet backing notes of wildlife all around really recharge my soul. As the famous Irish Poet Yeats said ‘Come with me oh Human Child, to the waters and the wild’ my natural human instincts for exploring, for the wild were satisfied and the scenic delights that crossed my eyes will never be forgotten. Until next year when I will return to the river Shannon.

There is a company called Discover the Shannon Link: which arrange holidays on the river and were really helpful with us.

With the holiday season approaching, its time to start considering planning for parties. Some of the most creative, fun parties revolve around themes. But decorating for specific themes can be more difficult, especially if you dont know what to look for. But there are tons of places to get unique decorating supplies for your specific theme. One of the most memorable decorations you can get to have your party stick out among the crowd is a life-size statue to highlight your theme.

Halloween Parties
Halloween kicks off the holiday season in style. This is one of the best occasions for picking a specific theme rather than getting out your old standby spooky dcor. You could go with a pirate theme, which is always fun for everyone, and have a life-size pirate captain to greet your guests and trick-or-treaters. Even if you stick with the traditional spooky theme, a life-size witch or grim reaper can make your party stand out.

Christmas Parties
It seems every year there are dozens of Christmas parties, and they all feel like the same party. Christmas is a great time to stand out among the crowd by choosing an interesting theme. You get a life-size snowman for a winter wonderland theme. Or, if you want something particularly classy you can do a Nutcracker theme. A life-size nutcracker and the classical sound track are sure to make your party memorable.

New Years Parties
New Years Eve is a great time to play with themes. A glamorous party can be turned into a Hollywood themed party with life-size replicas of your favorite celebrities. For a more laid back party, you could have a karaoke night with a life-size Elvis up on the stage.

Themed holiday parties offer your guests something new and interesting. Using a life-size statue to help create your theme will really make your holiday parties memorable.
