The Unique Amenities

According to the press release, here are the unique and one of a kind special features that come with a booking:

  • The Vrbo vacation home has to resemble a house made of gingerbread and be a small-town escape, preferably within walking distance of a bakery or coffee shop.
  • Snow must appear on command no matter the temperature outside, and there should be mistletoe nearby when flakes start to fall.
  • Every room of the house has to be covered in Santa’s workshop amounts of holiday decorationsno fewer than five Christmas trees, 10 wreaths, and two larger-than-life nutcrackers to stand guard.
  • Twinkle lights. More twinkle lights. And then even more twinkle lights.
  • Other requirements for a perfect Lifetime holiday movie setting include a roaring fireplace to sit by, holiday recipes from Lifetime stars to make for your loved ones, cookie cutters and ingredients for holiday cookies, letters to Santa, Christmas sweaters, childhood sweetheart nearby, jolly white-bearded neighbor, blizzard, and a corporate villain trying to take over the local candy making business…(well, we included as much as we could).

“I got to live the fantasy while shooting my first holiday movie this year, The Christmas Edition. It was a feeling that I wish everyone could have the chance to experience, so I was excited when this opportunity arose to help Vrbo create a Lifetime holiday movie escape for fans. This year in particular we could all use just a little extra magic,” said Carly.

“We’re having a lot of twinkly escapism fun with this, for sure,” said Lish Kennedy, Vrbo’s vice-president of brand marketing. “But it’s also a fit because Vrbo is all about family togetherness and Lifetime has put together a slate of holiday movies featuring all kinds of families. When we decided to bring a make-believe place to life in an over-the-top holiday Vrbo, we knew Lifetime would have the recipe.”
“We fell in love with the idea of walking into a vacation home and immediately feeling like you were transported into a Lifetime movie,” said Kannie Yu LaPack, senior vice president of PR, public affairs and social media for Lifetime and LMN.  “Because we all truly need to escape these days, this incredible opportunity to create a house with Vrbo for families to experience this season is like opening the perfect gift under the tree.”  

Vrbo is making the picture-perfect “It’s a Wonderful Lifetime” Holiday House available for three-night minimum stays through Dec. 27, 2020. Priced at $100 per night, the vacation home’s rental fees will go directly to charity.
