– 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.
Summing: The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals season 2
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.
