It might seem like a very strange concept for some, but think about it… Would you prefer to go on holiday and think about that door lock which hasn’t been locking properly and the grubby patio which really needs to be pressure washed? Or would you like some stress-free holidays knowing that all the little tasks you need doing around the house are getting done and they will all be completed when you get home? It’s a no-brainer, really. 

You can schedule a handyman to complete simple tasks as changing lightbulbs, fixing a leaking tap or larger projects, such as a kitchen renovation. As an article on the Boston Globe mentions home renovations are stressful, messy, loud, disruptive and can even be dangerous – so why not go for a renovation vacation?

You might be a bit reluctant to let tradesmen come into your house while you are not there, after all, it’s your home – what if something goes wrong? Say goodbye to your worries. If you feel this way, there are always ways around it, so you can still enjoy your holiday. Why not ask a close friend or neighbour if they can have a look from time to time? Or if you really need to see if for yourself, why not ask the handyman to send you some photos of how the project is going? Now, take a deep breath, put your feet up and relax.
