1.?Joshua Tree Homesteader Cabin, Southern California.

2.?Aspes?Villa, Psili Ammos, Serifos,?Greece .

Off the beaten track on a?Cycladean?beach just a stone’s throw from Mykonos, expect the bluest water, old school tavernas and a postcard-perfect hora a steep Vespa ride away. ??130 a night.

3.Depandance?Mayc, Sant?Feran’des Roques, Formentera, Spain.

Knock me down with a feather if this isn’t the most idyllic place on earth.? Cycle to epic beaches or town for a candlelit dinner,??100 a night.

4.Houseboat, under the Eiffel Tower, Paris.

Pinch yourself. Those fairy lights dancing on the ceiling are actually the reflection of La Tour in the river.? We reckon this could be the site of many an engagement.??110 a night.

5.St Kilda Chalet, Melbourne, Australia

Charm personified (and with an ebullient host to boot), there’s no better place from which to explore the hippest hood Down Under.??123 a night.

6.?Had Thien Bay, Surat Thani, Thailand

Your own desert island hut on a peaceful cove away from the hustle and bustle of Koh Samui.?79 a night.

7.Santanyi, Majorca

8.?Kealakekua Bay Bali Cottage, HawaiiThe pinnacle of honeymoon retreats nestles in the jungle on the eponymous Big Island, which is home to three active volcanoes. Never a dull moment.??136 a night.

9.?? Steinbeck Cottage, Pacific Grove, California

Just North of the legendary Big Sur, there’s plenty to see in terms of high drama landscapes nearby and plenty of ?top notch?eating and drinking, too. Nonetheless, you may never want to leave your roost.??167 a night.
