New York

Have you ever strolled through Greenwich Village and West Village as a non-resident and wondered what life is like living in this part of town? August is a terrific month for a staycation in the city, but maybe a cab ride away? One Fine Stay has some gorgeous properties which you can set up with flowers and champagne chilling in the fridge and surprise your love with a new nest. The neighbourhood of course has lots of delivery and the pick of fine dining options so the catering is taken care of.

If you’re up for heading out of town and need a little luxury in your life, then look no further than Stay Marquis in the Hamptons for a superlative end to end concierge experience of renting a home. They take extra care to ensure you have everything you need for your stay from grocery shopping, to dining and yacht reservations. A luxury rental and staff on tap to make the experience exceptional.

For a little Upper East Side luxury where the General Manager has ensured all is safe for guests, check into The Mark. The chef’s famous Truffle Pizza is still available for delivery to your suite. You could always push the boat out and take over the Penthouse Suite where Meghan Markle AKA the Duchess, had her baby shower. It’s tony, it’s Manhattan, it’s brimming with romance.


Unique Homestays has always been our go to site for the best of cottages and hideaways that could be on the pages of most country life and interior design magazines. Top notch facilities and amenities always clearly outlined and carefully chosen to ensure exceptionally high standards. Country or coast, they have both covered, now it’s just the choosing and grabbing your spot before August sells out.

Suffolk Farm is a dream getaway and an easy commute outside London, with access to the beach but also offering perfect seclusion. Warm evenings with the breeze wafting through the trees as your soundtrack. Perfect for a picnic, long walks, and luxuriating in the bath.

The Wild Rabbit is definitely not late for a very important date. The cottages are a total dream with names like The Apple Store and The Badger, what’s not to love?

The seaside in England is easily reached from London by train if you are not driving. Rye is a historical cobblestoned gem with some wonderful places to stay. Hastings is oozing with cool vibes and the old town a rustic gem, it’s the new Brighton. Check into the Old Rectory for something stylish and cool and old school.
