The chances are you’re seeing ‘workcations’ filling up your news feed! It’s the latest buzzword that is shaping the post-Covid-19 era of remote working, as many businesses make a permanent transition to a remote workforce and employees go in search of the ultimate work-life balance. New data from Airbnb shows that property reviews mentioning ‘remote working’ or ‘working remotely’ have tripled since last year!

As the entire world learns to move to the beat of a different drum amidst a global pandemic, we’re loving this new travel trend, but what exactly is a workcation?

‘Workcation’ is defined as “a working vacation, where you go to an exotic location and complete specific tasks or accomplish a goal before you leave”. It’s the silver lining of the changing workspace where we’re seeing an emphasis on a healthy work-life balance, combining work with a healthy lifestyle, and being able to take a vacation from the workplace, (which for many is a small space within their home right now), but not the work. 

Workcations are a source of creativity! A simple change of scenery and stepping away from your environment and the daily grind fosters free-thinking and increased productivity. A chance to lower your stress levels, recharge your batteries, and restore some equilibrium to life. Immersed in nature, no distractions, no honey-do lists … yet all the comforts of home, luxurious amenities, and new inspiring activities to discover in your downtime.

A prime location less than a mile from town and the beach … and you can bring your pooch!

Rancho del Mar – Arch Cape

This exceptional 4 bedroom home offers both space and privacy and is an all-time favorite when it comes to family-friendly Oregon Coast vacation homes.

This 5 bedroom home is newly renovated and perfectly appointed for large groups with dedicated workspaces and a 12 seater table for gathering! Remote and off the beaten path (with great WiFi!), this quiet retreat is a top pick for a workcation away from the city!

With the ongoing need for social distancing and Covid-19 related travel regulations, travelers are opting for drive-to markets you can reach on a tank of fuel, scenic landscapes, and the privacy, space, lifestyle, and easy social distancing that a traditional hotel room fails to provide. A workcation provides an opportunity to create a seamless work environment, blending work, and vacation into one! With the evolution of the virtual office, we do believe the workcation is here to stay!
