Excuse my French, but the hotel you choose for your honeymoon needs to have a certain je ne sais quoi. And, no, I don't mean that it's gotta cost a zillion bucks a night (because all that's going to do is have you hoarding the mini shampoos and stealing boxes of tissues and rolls of toilet paper to ease the hurt on your wallet). Rather, it needs to be artful, design-forward, detail-oriented, and in a mind-blowing location. Essentially you want it to feel as special as your new marriage (corny, but true).
Enter Welcome Beyond. It's a nifty site that features rental homes and boutique hotels around the world, which is something that lots of sites do, sure, but these just have that "It factor" and for rates that are downright reasonable. I think I'm speaking your language now, right?
Here are three properties that caught my eye:
La Quinta Troppo, a boutique hotel in Zihuatanejo, Mexico (room rates from $152/night).
The one-bedroom Oia Villa I on the island of Santorini, Greece (whole shebang from $220/night).
The elegant Casa de Madrid in Spain (room rates from $333/night).
