Vacation Rental – Venice, Italy

November 11, 2015 • By

It’s been a while since I wrote a Vacation Rental of the Week post while sitting in the apartment I’m writing about. But I’m doing just that right now.

Today’s the day we leave our charming attic apartment in Venice, Italy.

This home stay was everything I had hoped it would be. The selection process started some time ago, and I now know I chose wisely. To be perfectly honest, I felt completely at home here, from the moment I opened the front door and kicked off my shoes…

The apartment could not be more conveniently located.

When you arrive by boat to the San Samuele dock, you are just steps away from the front door. And while the apartment is on the top floor, there is an elevator that deposits you there easily with all your bags.

We were greeted by our charming hostess, Signora Barbero and READ MORE

Vacation Rental – Kauai, Hawaii

November 4, 2015 • By

Kauai is one of my favorite Hawaiian Islands. Mr. H and I spent most of our honeymoon on nearby Lanai, but I’ve been to Kauai several times.

Kauai is home to the famous St. Regis Princeville Resort and (at least part of the time) to Pierce Brosnan, Ben Stiller, Bette Midler and a host of other stars. It’s also a favorite getaway for Rob Lowe, Ben Affleck and hunky beach bums in general.

But I’m here to tell you about a charming, upscale surf shack that you can rent for a self-catering holiday.

Just steps from Poipu Beach and Brennecke’s Beach, this bright, colorful and beautifully appointed Kauai vacation rental is so much fun. This is the epitome of laid-back beach style. So grab your board shorts and let’s go.

Tour this Luscious London Micro Hotel

January 13, 2016 • By

Today’s stylish vacation rental is actually a tiny, two-guestroom hotel called 40 Winks.

(My dad used to always say he was going to catch 40 winks, just as he would lie down on the sofa for a nap…)

This lovely house was built in 1717, so it’s almost 300 years old. It’s quirky, eccentric and playfully glamorous. The kitchen is completely over the top!

Scroll down to see more of this dramatic space…

Take a tour of this United Kingdom Vacation Rental with a Theatrical Vibe - 40 Winks. Grace, glamour, art, and design can be found here - so magical!

Vacation Rental: Cottage in Asheville, North Carolina

October 28, 2015 • By

This week’s Vacation Rental is in Asheville, North Carolina, one of my favorite places to visit. This holiday home is in the Great Smoky Mountains with a spectacular view – but just ½ hour from downtown Asheville with its restaurants, bars, shopping, festivals and of course, the famous Biltmore Estate.

Just look at how adorable this place is.

This week I discovered a luxury retreat in London Bridge, and I can’t wait for you to see it.

If you’re planning a trip to London, consider this house for your holiday home stay.  It’s stylish, sophisticated and located near South Bank, which is home to the Tate Modern and the National Theatre. Plus the home itself is full of industrial chic furnishings and epic views.
