Best Points Options for BNB's

Updated: Sep 5, 2023



A commonly neglected element of points options is those of BNB's & multi-bedroom suites. In this article I wanted to focus primarily on BNB's.


Options Via Wyndham Rewards for 15k/night/bedroom (13.5k/night if you have the Wyndham business Earner)

My Map

Here is a map of some options when you narrow down by Vacasa cities/counties, Cottages.com cities/counties, & Lindhal cities/counties w/ 1 bedroom options for BNBs. Keep in mind that there are a number of additional cities/counties w/ more than 1 bedroom & that most cities/counties w 1 bedroom options have 2+ bedroom options.

If using the map on Vacasa, keep in mind that it often won't show availability until you Zoom in quite a bit, but that availability can change at any time & that my map isn't updated on a daily basis.

Basics

How to get Wyndham Rewards

Vacasa - the Highest Volume Viable Option in the US w/ Some Elsewhere for Traditional Style BnBs

Cottages.com - Solid Options in United Kingdom

Landal Greenparks- More Options in UK & Mainland Europe

Alternatives:

Limited Time Promos with Chase Ultimate Rewards

There have been at least a few occasions in the past where pay yourself back for the typical rate on travel was made available with the Chase Sapphire Reserve & other annual fee-incurring Chase UR cards for AirBNB rentals. I've taken advantage of this option to book an AirBNB before when the options with Vacasa in the same location where my dad needed it who was requesting the booking.

That said, keep in mind that pay with points with Chase Ultimate Rewards using the Chase Sapphire Reserve, getting 1.5 cents per point (vs other Chase UR annual fee incurring cards getting 1.25 cents per point), is significantly lower value than you can get with Chase partners like Hyatt, especially if you acquire globalist status like I have at the time of this writing & use it at a hotel where that would grant you club lounge access and a standard suite if space is available at check-in or with a suite upgrade certificate with advanced confirmation.

Multi-bedroom Suites Including Villas, Casitas, Cabins, Etc.
