When you’re traveling with kids, a vacation rental is often the more cost effective option. But finding rentals with gated or fenced-in pools isn’t easy, as few vacation homes come with childproofing.
Enter today’s hint, a solution for the first-world problem of childproofing vacation home pools: Call a pool fencing company and ask them to put up a temporary fence.
I learned about this option when I was searching for a vacation rental for an upcoming trip. When I inquired if a certain rental had a pool fence, the rental company representative wrote “no,” but suggested I call a local pool fence company that installs temporary fences.
That I did, and now for about $400 for a week, we’ll have a fence installed at our rental and our vacation should be a lot more relaxing.
