Ours is going to be closer to a private residence; there are only 30 rooms and each one has a private pool/ spa so there’s no need to ever see other people! I definitely didn’t want to spend my honeymoon around others, and I agree with you about the vibe of all-inclusive resorts.

My fiance and I booked an amazing restored barn right next door to a private winery out in Sonoma County, California. We wanted to explore both Napa and Sonoma in wine country and thought it would make it even more special to have a whole house to ourselves! Cannot wait!!!

This is totally what we are planning! It’s still a ways away, but the plan so far is to rent a villa/house/condo/whatever near the beach where we can relax, drink wine, and totally mellow out. We are looking at either Spain/Portugal/Italy/France/Greece or Hawaii. Ah so many decisions!! This is totally why I am leaving the final decisions up to Fiance…

We’re probably going this direction, I totally agree–I dislike the idea of people being around me unless I choose for them to be! So we’re exploring our options…

Yours sounds great, btw!

Totally. I want to know where to look into these villas. We are looking at going to Hawaii, so we’re actually looking to stay in a few places. Our hope is to stay in a hotel on Oahu, a resort on Maui and hopefully a small B&B type place on the Big Island. So, we’ll have a variety of experiences. But I would love to get a house on Maui. I just worry about having to feed ourselves if we were too secluded.

Haha, I was just going to ask for the link, but considering your wedding is the day after ours, our honeymoons will definitely coincide!!

St. Lucia is so nice though… friends of ours went there on their honeymoon and LOVED it.

Yours sounds amazing!

Since our budget is nonexistent, we are spending time at FI’s family’s summer home in Maine. So we will be quite secluded, but I doubt we will be getting any maid service, or sipping frosty beverages on the beach (in Maine, in October…)

I had no idea where to even start to look into these things. I should try that website. Any other suggestions?

we’re planning on renting an apartment in Paris for a week!  We’re not really feeling a beachy-type trip and wanted something more private and personal than a hotel.  We won’t have servants or maids or anything, but we’re looking forward to wandering around Paris eating at different restaurants, drinking wine, and having a romantic time “living” in Paris!  We haven’t booked the place yet, but there are a ton of places available all over the world at http://www.vrbo.com.  I’ve stayed in rentals arranged by friends before and it’s always worked out great.
