Can you change the room to two queens in the bedroom? Would that be comfortable for you guys?

lcb2013 :  Is your daughter close enough with your Mother-In-Law that you could maybe go in halfs on a room for Mother-In-Law with the idea that your daughter could spend a night or two in that room with her? Or you could do this with the 2-bedroom too. If you do stick with the 1-bedroom, it is perfectly reasonable for her to take the sleeper sofa. We’ve paid for family vacations before and it honestly never occurred to my husband or me to give someone else the master bedroom. We’re the ones paying and we’re the ones having sex so we’re the ones taking the more private room. Not sorry.cool

lcb2013 :  She sounds like a decent woman just looking to be near people and save a dollar or two. I think she’ll be fine on the pull out, and has already made it clear she’ll give you couple time too. You did a nice thing. Enjoy your holiday.

Would it be possible for her to share with your SIL? 

It sounds like everyone is trying to be considerate of everyone else which is a great thing, but echoing what other Bees have said about the importance of you and your husband having a romantic night or two alone. 

FWIW I would only give up my own bedroom for someone elderly, with serious health problems, or in the last months of pregnancy. I’m an older Bee and a Mother-In-Law and I’d have no problem sleeping on a pull-out couch/ rollaway cot/ sleeping bag if it came to it! 🙂

No way should you give up the bedroom! That would be silly. Just make sure she knows she’ll be on a pull-out bed and if she wants a bedroom she’ll have to pay to upgrade.

If she was going to pay for a 1 bedroom villa to begin with is it an option for her to pay half and for you guys to pay the other half? Maybe as a trade off she can have your daughter with her on some nights? I just think its a bit much to expect a newly married couple to have one of their mother’s in their room especially when there is already going to be a child in there as well. But maybe I’m being too harsh!
