Soak it up: Best vacation rental bathtubs

Published February 2021

>

Bathtubs can be suited to a variety of moods: relaxation, romance, and even quiet reflection, but they’re undeniably essential to self-care. One of the many things 2020 taught us is that we can always use more self-care, right? So why not add to the restorative effects of your next vacation by booking a vacation home with a soaking tub to alleviate any lingering stress. Fun fact: some studies show that warm baths can reduce blood pressure and even help boost your immune system.

If you’re due for some R&R, pour a glass of cucumber water and let us take you on a tour of eight unique bathtubs from coast to coast—and one south of the border—that put the “aah” in Vacasa.
