Bedding & Level Abbreviations

Understanding Abbreviations Used in Vacation Rental Listings

When looking at a vacation rental listing you may see a lot of unfamiliar acronyms and abbreviations used to describe the bedrooms and levels in a home. We can help you understand what they mean so you choose the house right for you and there are no surprises on check-in day.



Level by Level Descriptions

L1

Level 1 (Ground Floor)

Commonly found on level 1 are bedrooms, rec room/game room, entrance to the pool area, media or theater rooms. The Ground Floor is also typically where you will find the keyless entry lock, if the home has it. 

L2

Level 2 (Middle Floor)

Depending on the home, typical types of rooms found on the 2nd Level are bedrooms, a den, or a game room.

L3

Level 3 (Top Floor)

Many vacation rental homes on the Outer Banks are built in a "reverse floor plan" with the great room, dining room, and kitchen on top floor. Many homes will also have the main master bedroom on Level 3. This is typically the level with the best views.

L3.5

Level 3.5

Some houses may have a landing in between levels, sometimes with a small sitting area or half bath.
