Hot tub time
Even if you're not using it as a warming station for the person you just brought back from the club or as a thin excuse to ogle your housemates, the hot tub has become an increasingly hot commodity for vacation-home renters. A TripAdvisor survey found that 9% of those polled viewed a hot tub as their luxury feature of choice in a vacation rental home. That's still a less popular choice than a private beach (51%) or maid service (12%), but it still ranks ahead of a personal chef (8%).

It's also one of the options being considered by the 23% of vacation home owners who told HomeAway they'll be improving the exterior of their vacation home this year. Whether the hot tub's appeal outweighs anything renters -- or their lecherous Uncle Nino -- leave behind for the cleaning crew remains to be seen.
