COVID-19 restrictions continue to subside. But millions of people continue to work remotely. In fact, 16 percent of companies are fully remote, while many more continue to let their employees work remotely at least part-time, or full-time for certain positions.
If you’re lucky enough to be working remotely, you already know some of the perks. Working in your pajamas or not having to leave the house is fun for a while. But one big perk that you’ll want to take advantage of at some time is to work remotely from a fun destination — like Zion National Park.
Planning a work-cation in Zion can be a fun way to enjoy a vacation without taking time off work. Ready to start planning a productive, fun getaway? Keep reading to learn what to look for when choosing Springdale vacation rentals like Watchman Villas.
Consider Your Needs
Before you start searching for the best resorts near Zion National Park, it’s important to consider what you need in order to work remotely successfully.
Are you someone who is happy to work for hours with your laptop propped up in your lap while you lounge in a pool chair? Or do you prefer to have a desk to spread out on? Are you looking forward to enjoying local carryout for every meal? Or will the ability to cook healthy, balanced meals make a big difference in your productivity?
Other things to consider are how long you’re going to stay, whether you need a washer and dryer in your vacation rental, and the types of activities you’d like to enjoy when you aren’t working. Considering these things ahead of time will help you to better narrow your options for Springdale vacation rentals.
Give Yourself Space to Spread Out
Traveling on your own for your work-cation? You might think that a small vacation rental is all that you need. But before you book a studio apartment, consider whether that tight space might impact your productivity.
While a working getaway is a chance to get away from home and enjoy yourself during your trip, you’ll still want to get some work done. That can be tough to do when you’re stuck in a cramped vacation rental all day long.
To help keep yourself motivated and to enjoy a change of pace from what you might be used to at home, choose a vacation rental that gives you space to spread out and move around throughout the day. A dedicated workspace is a great start. But a dining room table, a comfy couch, and an outdoor patio or balcony can all make great workstations. These will allow you to change your environment throughout your workday.

Now that you’ve considered what you want in a room or unit, it’s time to start searching for the best Springdale vacation rentals. At Watchman Villas, each of our 5 private villas is built for remote working!

Schedule Your Time
Working remotely from an incredible destination like Zion National Park can make it easy to get distracted. It’s easy for your excitement to explore the park and Springdale gets in the way of getting your work done.
To avoid this, consider scheduling your time much as you do when working at home. Even if you aren’t required to be logged in at a certain time, give your day some structure, and stick to it. Work during work hours, that way you can relax and explore outside of work hours without worrying about whether or not your work will get done.
Take Meaningful Breaks
Another great way to keep yourself motivated and on track is to make sure that your breaks from work are fun and meaningful. Don’t give in to the temptation to scroll social media when your work day is over. Instead, get outside of your vacation rental and explore!
The best resorts near Zion National Park, like Watchman Villas, are located close to the park’s entrance gate. Even better yet, Watchman Villas is located on a shuttle stop for the Springdale Shuttle loop. This means that you can leave your car parked at your vacation rental, and ride the shuttle into the park. From there, hop on the Zion Canyon Shuttle, and take it to the park’s most popular trailheads and overlooks.
