Luxury vacation rentals for your honeymoon
In the movies, couples get married and magically hop on a private plane. They jet off to some secluded oasis or a stunning mountain escape. About the time they step foot in their private bay, you’re probably thinking, “Real people don’t honeymoon like that.” But we’re excited to tell you that you can. And we’re going to share the secret way it’s done.
It turns out you don’t have to be a world-famous super-spy or glamorous starlet to get star treatment. Lavish living around the world is available to everyone thanks to a new curated collection of luxury vacation rentals you probably haven’t heard of. It’s really easy (we’ll give you the link below). Browse premium and luxury-tier homes around the globe and book with full confidence because it’s all backed by a global hospitality company you know and love, Marriott International.
Curate your honeymoon vibe and aesthetic
First of all, you won’t find these homes like these just anywhere. You get access to a curated catalog of upscale private homes that become a remarkable “choose your own adventure” experience.
We suggest starting with what kind of mood, vibe, or aesthetic you want to have on your honeymoon. You have an opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind trip that reflects both of you and the love you have for each other. Here some examples of what that looks like in action:
- You love the beach, but your fiancée can’t stand the crowds? Try out a tropical cabana with a private bay. You get all the surf and sand without any errant beach balls or rowdy Spring Breakers.
- Your partner has a sense of adventure, and you love the comforts of the city? Stay in a swanky loft in a city new to you both. Then, spend your afternoons exploring.
- Always imagined your big love at the center of a romance novel? Cozy up in a cottage. Or spend your evenings romping around an honest-to-goodness castle!
No one will be able to match your experience. The memories that you’ll make on this journey together will be as unique as your love.
Wait—honeymooning in someone else’s home?
Yes! Luxury vacation rentals are the perfect combination of living like a local and enjoying the finest life has to offer. Instead of waking up to the sound of housekeeping and heading downstairs for a continental breakfast, you could be brewing a fresh pot of gourmet coffee in a beautifully appointed kitchen and taking in the snowy mountains from a balcony in Switzerland. (Seriously.)
Plus, all the homes are carefully vetted and backed by Marriott’s 90+ years of hospitality expertise. You can be confident when you travel that your reserved home will be clean, safe and welcoming. They’ve even launched COVID-specific procedures to ensure every home is up to standard. Homeowners’ personal items are also stored away, so you don’t have to worry about a thing.
You can live in the moment with your new spouse and let the “real world” fade away. You’ll be amazed at how a great honeymoon experience can deepen your love for one another.
Explore new destinations, enjoy comforts
There’s no denying it’s easy to gravitate toward a hotel because you generally know what to expect when you arrive. What’s exciting about these luxury home rentals is that they bring that same standard to the elite private homes in their collection. (Including a generous 10-day cancellation policy on most homes, now extended through June 30, 2021.) In short, that means maximum adventure and relaxation with minimal worry and stress. Other home rental services can’t offer the same guarantees.
Breathe easy knowing the fundamentals for your vacation home—24/7 support, high-speed WiFi, television, an in-unit washer, premium linens and towels, and bathroom amenities—are guaranteed. Take that into consideration when you pack. Knowing before you go can help reduce the baggage you’re lugging through international airports—or help you make more room for souvenirs! Trust us; you’re going to want to remember this one-of-a-kind trip.
Once you fall in love with staying in non-touristy private homes, we recommend checking back often for what home-away-from-home you will explore next.
Have grand adventures together, get rewarded
After you arrive, the possibilities are as endless as your imagination. From your apartment in Rome, take the train across town to sightsee before enjoying a decadent food tour. Call a car to drive you from your villa in Cape Town to a fascinating safari, then a tasting of local wines. In San Francisco, take a private walking tour of SoMa and rent a convertible for a sunny drive on the Pacific Coast Highway. (We recommend adding experiences like this to your honeyfund because friends and family love giving fun, exciting gifts!)
No matter what you do, the real reward is the time together—just the two of you. As a bonus, though, you can earn Marriott Bonvoy points with your booking. If you’re already a member, you can redeem your existing points for your luxury vacation rentals. Using your current points is a great way to save money on your lodging, so you can upgrade or add to your experiences!
Focus on your future together
Time away after a wedding is a pivotal experience for many newlyweds. Our Honeyfund couples have told us time after time that travel together has been transformative for their relationships. That’s why we do what we do! You deserve this special time together, and we want to help.
