It’s 10:30am Wednesday morning in NYC on December 21st and it looks like this outside:
3/4 of my office has left for the holidays, and I have 7 more hours to go until I can slink back into my bed and wait for June. Time to research fantasy getaways for a future time when I have the means and vacation days to kick back somewhere hula and super top-drawer. This is where homeaway.com comes in.
I’m a big of houses over hotels. I prefer cooking over room service, living rooms over lobbies, and shared kitchens instead of salmonella-ridden breakfast buffets. In this respect, Homeaway.com is my jimmy jam, evidenced by the mucho hours spent snooping on other people’s vaca homes. Even better, it cuts out the middle man (i.e pushy real estate agents) and puts you directly in contact with homeowners, making it cheaper and easier to rent tippy top homes all over the globe.
If you’re in the same miserable winter predicament as me right now, take a cue from yours truly and fritter away a few work hours planning a trip for 10 to Honduras or a family retreat to Harbour Island. My carefully curated, exhaustively researched list of Warm Winter Tippy-Top Getaways below:
Soufriere, St. Lucia
Las Terrenas, Samana Peninsula, Dominicam Republic
Captiva Island, Florida Gulf Coast
Dunmore Town, Harbour Island, Bahamas
Bo Phut Beach, Koh Samui, Thailand
Las Galeras, Samara Peninsula, Dominican Republic
Bocas del Toro, Panama
Isla Holbox, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
