While on vacation would you stay in a gated community? Wondering whether it is a hassle to stay in a gated community where you have to buzz yourself in with a pass? The good, the bad and the ugly experiences. Thanks.
I love them. I prefer staying in a private house in a gated community. The gate or gatehouse is zero hassle as far as I'm concerned.
Hey @Becky Haag , I have never stayed in a place with gate access, but I don't see why I wouldn't.
I guess it would depend on the area. In rural Idaho where our lake house is, I could see it being a bit of a PITA. But in the Disney World area, most of the resorts that people use for vacation rentals are gated and there doesn't seem to be a problem.
I will say that it imparts a feeling of security. You feel better about your kids riding or walking around because not just anyone can wander around.
I have stayed in a gated community before and it was no big deal coming and going.
@Becky Haag But are the other houses going to want strange guests coming and going and partying?
Thanks for the comments!
