Your true love does not want twelve drummers drumming. Actually, a little peace and quiet is probably what is in store for both of you. The holiday season is far from over. If your stocking wasn’t filled with all the goodies you actually wanted, give yourselves the gift of a quiet get away. In the winter whirlwind, you may have forgotten what peace and quiet are. Here are some survival DOs & DON’Ts for getting through those last days of the winter holidays.

Don’t cook. Unless you’ve got a sexy relaxing kitchen like this one on Whidbey Island to cook in, just eat leftovers out of the microwave. You’ve done enough cooking, baking, and candy making for one year. Enjoy a home made espresso on the beach during your stay here. A gourmet coffee machine is just one of the fine water front perks.



Do warm up. Escape to some place tropical. Soak up the Vitamin D. A simple beach front villa is all you need. Maui is a perfect spot for catching rays and waves.


Don’t be available. If you’re phone is on, it can ring. Turn it off. Even better: head to a time zone so far away, no one will bother calling. Stay seaside in Lebanon in this penthouse apartment. Gorgeous balcony views of the Mediterranean Sea, vibrant waters’ edge street markets, and smart and cozy furnishings make this Asian escape one to add to your list. You’ll be nestled in the heart of history with some of civilization’s oldest achievements nearby. Take a tour of ancient sites and museums. An archeologist’s dream vacation will have you feeling off the grid while being in a truly world class city.

Do buy yourself something nice. Gifts are great, but no one knows your style like you do. Treat yourself to an end-of-year inventory sale and score that coveted handbag at a bargain price. Davenport, Florida is perfectly convenient to some of the best shopping and family fun ever. Not only will you be near the fabulous kid-focused retail the Disney Area has to offer, you’ll also be close to outlet malls, boutiques, and resort shopping. Grab the deals then head back to float in the pool or enjoy the lake. This home is perfect for your family plus friends. Shop ’til you drop for the best end of year deals, or at least until the New Year’s ball drops.
