Netflix’s The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals Season 2 Review: Much the Same

The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals is a Reality TV show hosted by Megan Batoon, Jo Franco and Luis D. Ortiz. The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals season 2 has 8 episodes, each around 30 minutes long.

Netflix describes it as:

With an eye for every budget, three travelers visit vacation rentals around the globe and share their expert tips and tricks in this reality series.

– The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals season 2 review does not contain spoilers –

I remember watching The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals and being thoroughly perplexed by it. The series had so much going for it – a unique premise, some great places of accommodation and a lockdown to make us obsess over travel shows. But alas, it chose to follow its presenters as the hill to die on. Thus, in the first season, we got a show that is obsessed with documenting every “oh my god!” from its presenters rather than actually focusing on the places at hand.

That being said, I was quite surprised to learn of The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals season 2. Yeah, I wasn’t expecting another season of watching the world’s most annoying people totally ruin a show. But well, here we are.

For the unaware, The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals is a travel reality TV show that takes us to beautiful locations and makes us stay at vacation rentals that range from very cheap to very expensive. However, all of them are equally beautiful and scenic.

I must give The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals season 2 some brownie points for bringing to us some amazing properties and places. This season is more themed than last season’s place-specific stays. It’s absolutely magnificent and even if you hate everything else about this, the stays are absolutely ethereal. It’s amazing to think that there are places out there that can give you joy like no other.

However, we are still following the “oh my god!” exclamations from last season. I mean, I get it, they are absolutely beautiful, but The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals season 2 feels more like watching three friends go on a vacation. As in, the series is people-focused, instead of places-focused. It’s not really a problem, except that I didn’t care about any of these people. They are annoying.

What I mean to say is, I’d watch this show without the presenters. I would not mind if it was silent. The properties are to die for and more often than not my mouth was hanging open. After some time, I drowned out the noise and just stared in awe. And again, the cinematography is to be thanked for that. It’s brilliant and makes the already beautiful properties look breathtaking.

The second season, again, is also extremely fast-paced, so much so that it’s difficult to concentrate on one property or one thing at any given moment. Since the episode length is so short and we have three properties to see per episode, we can’t sit and just take in their beauty. Sadly, it doesn’t do much justice to the properties. Plus, the fixation on following the presenters and obsessing over their routines really doesn’t do much to solve that either.

The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals season 2 is mostly the same as last time, with the presenters constantly talking and us flying through the properties at break-neck speeds. Although every place is beautiful, it feels annoying and pretentious after a while… and just a tad bit tiring.

The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals season 2 is streaming on Netflix.

SUMMARY

The World's Most Amazing Vacation Rentals season 2 is much the same but the properties are to die for.

4 COMMENTS

  1. I can’t stand the show. It’s almost impossible to watch, it’s so incredibly hyper and the conversation feels intentionally over fast paced, the constant switching of camera angles it is absolutely wretched and never lets you view a single bit of the properties and all of it comes across as unnatural. There’s almost no conversation about the specifics of the properties other than the price which is helpful, but they usually disclose very little about the surrounding area. And I agree with what was said above about the people. Seriously who gives a shit about any of these people? We are never given any downtime for a long enough period of time to care literally about any of them, and I have no idea what they do in real life or how long they’ve done it or why I should care about what they say about anything.
    There’s only one girl on there who even remotely talks about the uniqueness of the architecture and it’s usually done through two or three sentences spoken at the pace of someone trying to rush their kids out the door after their ninth shot of espresso. It’s awful I can’t stand everything about it, and it really pisses me off because these are some incredible properties that I would love to spend more time with.

    • I had mentioned this in my Season 1 review: the series is just so fleeting. These amazing properties don’t get enough love and appreciation from the hosts. And these people are just so annoying that watching this becomes a chore.
