Welcome to our guide for your South Korea vacation rentals. This page provides you with ideas to help you plan your visit to this country with exciting four seasons.

Find your unique accommodation to enjoy a memorable stay with friends and family. In South Korea, you can find your vacation rental near points of interests.

As I have experienced being a resident in this country, aside from the usual hotel types, you can as well discover various selections of rentals, including…

  • Apartments
  • Houses
  • Hostels
  • Studious, condos, Etc.
  • Mobile Homes

Yes, that is correct. Although you can easily find cheap hotels in many places in Seoul and South Korea, you can also stay at those selections above.

Apartments are preferably for a group or family vacation rental. Apartments have bigger spaces and are usually found in most central areas with popular destinations.

Hostels, studios, condos, and similar establishments are great since they offer you private rooms and privacy. However, you do not actually interact with the real owners as they are strictly meant for business and nothing more.

But if you rent a house, stay in a room of a family, such as the B&B rentals, you would most likely experience the local culture and great hospitality. But it will be your preference and decision to make.

South Korea Vacation Rentals Rates

As I mentioned, you have varied choices of price rates anywhere in Korea. That’s because even if you stay in a popular destination with luxurious hotels, you could always find ‘non-hotels’ that can accommodate your preference.

Based on my experience and according to the recent rates you can find on the web, prices vary depending on the season. Let’s see…

January – around 130 USD
February to December – around 100 USD

As you can see, pricing in January in South Korea is higher compared to the rest of the months. I guess that is due to the winter holiday. Also, other Asian countries that don’t have the winter season visitors come to experience the amazing cold white snow of the winter.

South Korea Vacation Rentals When Traveling by Plane

Incheon International Airport (ICN) is not the only international airport of South Korea (Republic of Korea – ROK). You can also fly in directly to other cities but depending on your origin of departure.

For example, you can fly directly to…

  • Gimpo Airport (Seoul),
  • Suwon (SWU-Suwon Airbase)
  • Yangyang International Airport (YNY)
  • Sokcho Airport (SHO)

As you know, the great thing about getting vacation rentals near airports is proximity and time efficiency especially if you are that busy or only have a very short break.

In the Seoul area, Gimpo International (and Domestic) Airport is the ideal one. It is where shopping centers and leisure establishments are located.
