Looking to rent a beach access villa with staff for family with 2 toddlers

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are looking to rent a house/villa for ourselves and our two children (ages 4 and 1). We are open to pretty much anywhere as long as it requires only one reasonable plane ride (our youngest is a horrible flier). I have been scouring the sites, but am so reluctant to book without doing more research. I am hoping you seasoned travelers could help me out.

My basic requirements are:
- travel is open anytime April - June
- private house/villa (not a hotel/apartment/condo)
- chef/housekeeper
- at least 2 bedrooms (air-conditioning in bedrooms)
- private pool, beautiful open air spaces without comfortable outdoor seating
- private access to a beach (with sand for playing and clear water to walk into/play in; the beach does not have to be large though)
- no more than $3500/week exclusive of airfare but inclusive of staff, etc.

We have rented villas in the past with family, but in Mexico. I just do not want to risk booking some place that looks good online, but ends up having bed bugs, no actual access to the ocean, no sand at the "beach", rough seas where we cannot actually go swimming in as a family, etc. We live in Chicago so flights are easy to come by, but need to be less than 5 hours.

Any thoughts and help are greatly appreciated.

Sara
