Luxury Staycations: Give Yourself the 5-Star Treatment at Home

Hectic lives and busy schedules can make going away on vacation more work than some of us want to handle. A great holiday doesn’t have to include travel. Why not plan a luxurious vacation without ever leaving your house?

In a few simple steps, and you will be sure to have a truly divine holiday in the comforts of your own home. Staying at home can be every bit as relaxing and in some ways more adventurous. Start with a clean, clutter free house is a must, so spoil yourself by hiring a cleaning service to get it ready for you. Investing in a few key outdoor pieces like a hammock or an outdoor lounge bed will ensure you relax in absolute bliss while instantly transforming your surroundings into an enchanted getaway. Hanging sheer drapes with mood lighting can enhance your outdoor oasis and add just the right amount of privacy. Overhauling your backyard won’t be necessary, but filling it with a few exotic elements can help transport you to a different time and place. Indulge in a few specialty items that will pamper you. Adorn your bed with high thread count sheets and over stuffed pillows. You will sleep like a queen and enjoy the perfect lazy morning. Stock your bathroom with luxurious products to be enjoyed during your holiday.

Give Yourself the 5-star Treatment

Indulge in fantastic foods while you are vacationing and fill your fridge with your favorite items. Treat yourself to a night on the town and make reservations at your favorite restaurant, or even better, hire a caterer to come and prepare a five star meal for you. Your vacation is a time to relax, forget answering the phone or checking your computer, unplug them both if you have to. The simple act of being unreachable will help you enjoy your home retreat even more. Be sure to do things you don’t normally have time for. Read a good book and linger for hours, take a walk, or take in some of the local sights or places you’ve been meaning to visit. If you are really serious about living in the lap of luxury, go for ‘la piece de resitance’ and bring the spa into your home by scheduling a masseur to make a house call. Be creative and remember this is your holiday, where do you want it to take you?
