HGTV cashes in on the comfort that home improvement shows provide to become an entire network dedicated to property shows. There is certainly some form of charm involved in watching a run-down, boring house be converted into something that could be out of an artbook. Perhaps its the OCD nature inside all of us that home improvement shows”fix” by transforming bad to good or unclean to tidy. While home improvement shows are of various kinds, they generally revolve around the main residential property of people. However, vacation homes are a different ballgame altogether. That is exactly what ‘Vacation House Rules’ approaches.
Vacation homes have different requirements altogether. Plus, the ones seen on TV or other places can be quite wishful. Hence, HGTV’s ‘Vacation House Rules’ shows how the dream vacation home can be achieved with minimal cost. The show depicts a common roadmap that can be used to convert boring houses into full-blown, photogenic holiday homes.
The show is hosted by real estate expert, Scott McGillivray. He has several years of real estate and renovation experience under his belt which he puts to use on the show. Some of the other shows that he has been a part of include ‘Buyers Bootcamp,’ ‘Scott’s House Call,’ ‘Canada’s Handyman Challenge,’ and ‘Home to Win.’ The full title of ‘Vacation House Rules’ is ‘Scott’s Vacation House Rules.’

‘Scott’s Vacation House Rules’ is a real estate/home improvement show. Hence, it focuses on properties that are turned around. Thus, the show is filmed at the properties which get transformed.
