Kate Gosselin, her eight little Gosselin and a couple of close friends all enjoyed a recent trip to the beach that was at least partially comped. A company called Relax on the Beach offered Kate and her family a week's free lodging in a beach house.
According to a report from Babble, Kate was responsible for transportation and meals, so she drove the family's big black bus and towed a trailer filled with meal provisions and swim toys and gear.
"I literally cried with excitement because this has been a very tightly budgeted year, and I wasn't sure our budget could stretch to accommodate a family vacation this summer!" Kate says about the free week at the beach.
The company rents home along Florida's northern gulf coast and the Alabama gulf coast shore. And even though the weather this time of year is brutal, a trip to the beach comes with built-in activities that can cool kids off all at the same time. So what does the rental company get out of this freebie? They likely can post photos of Kate and her kids enjoying their vacation or at the very least advertise that the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 family (or at least most of them) vacationed there.
Kate Gosselin blogged about her trip after returning home.
"I will forever cherish the memories of my kids' carefree laughs as they purposely 'wiped out' in the waves and as they furiously dug trenches to protect their elaborately created sand castles," she wrote. "I will treasure the many pictures we snapped, permanently capturing those memories for always."

It's nice to hear that the former Kate Plus 8 star truly appreciates this comped week at a beach house. And since she had to drive and provide meals, it seems like she almost had to see how the other half lives!
