As you know, I love renting houses, villas, apartments – heck, even barns if they’re stylish and fun – when I travel. Here’s one I haven’t personally rented yet, but I sure am tempted! This charming little home is called a “jewel box for two” on the Boutique Homes website.
I’ve become a big fan of One Fine Stay, and I’ve had good experiences with VRBO, AirBnb and other sites. But I just found out about Boutique Homes when they started following my Twitter feed. (Thanks!)
I’m impressed with the quality and diversity of their offerings – and I definitely hope to check into one of their small hotels soon, too. They have a separate section on their website for true boutique hotels around the world.
This particular property in Megalochori, Greece features a private courtyard and swimming pool, as well as an intriguing bath tub/shower combo that I’d be sure to make use of. (I love well-designed, luxurious and/or unique spaces for my water rituals!) There’s also a small kitchen, of course, but according to the description, you’re also steps away from a number of great restaurants.
This property is stylishly simple and looks really cozy to me. Rent it, and you can live like a (relaxed, tan) local on your next trip to Greece.
