By now, you must have some sort of an idea of how much we really love the exclusivity, the personalization, the amenities, the service, and the comfort (the list could go on) that a private villa offers... And for a babymoon? We could not think of a better place to stay. For starters, it’ll satisfy any late-night cravings you have (you can thank us later for having a gourmet kitchen to sneak into late at night!). Plus, it’s a place where you really can have all the privacy in the world (and you better enjoy it while you can, as that will shortly go out the door!).
From a really romantic one-bedroom villa that’s straight out of a storybook in Tuscany to a modern Malibu home that’s big enough to bring your besties for one last hoorah – there’s no better way to celebrate your growing family before the baby arrives than at one of these five really romantic luxury homes.
P.S. Celebrate while helping those in need…

1. THE CASINA
SLEEPS: 2 | BEDROOMS: 1 | BATHROOMS: 2
Set within an enchanting country estate near Siena, The Casina feels straight out of a storybook... With just one bedroom, you'll wake up in an ancient stone watchtower that overlooks the rolling Tuscan hills. It's a super romantic masterpiece that has recently been restored and realizes the best of old-meets-new… A glass-enclosed pavilion wraps around the living space, where the coziest of spaces (sumptuous daybeds, included!) call for unrivaled relaxation and delectable dining. Outdoors, you’ll find a terrace for your days under the Tuscan sun, an infinity pool for that much-needed dip, and a pergola that’s perfect for alfresco meals. If you’re feeling up for an adventure, take the villa’s two bicycles out for a beautiful ride through the countryside! And we love the villa’s location: far enough away, but close enough to Siena’s fine dining, horse stables, and unique experiences like truffle hunting!
2. LUXURY TROCADERO
SLEEPS: 2 | BEDROOMS: 1 | BATHROOMS: 1
Not many places are as romantic as Paris — and we’ve quite literally found a dream apartment that awaits with a seriously spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower. Enter: Luxury Trocadero — an utterly chic, intimately spacious stay in the City of Lights (and City of Love!) that offers utmost privacy in the heart of the elegant 16th arrondissement. Your mornings will begin with a gourmet breakfast brought to you by your butler and afternoons will be spent getting lost in the city. Early evenings will call for some pampering and relaxation courtesy of the La Reserve de Paris’ spa and pool, which all you have to do is just use the in-villa iPad to call for the hotel’s limousine to whisk you from the apartment… This place is absolutely what Parisian dreams are made of!
3. CASA CHECHEN
SLEEPS: 4 | BEDROOMS: 2 | BATHROOMS: 2
Tucked in the lush Tulum jungle in a prime playa location and just steps from the beach, Casa Chechen is an authentic, intimate 2-bedroom villa that’s the perfect place for a babymoon hideaway. This wood-and-stone-clad home is warm and it is welcoming with a made-in-Tulum vibe, and it is rustic in the most romantic way. There’s a really cute kitchen that’s contemporary in style, plus the two bedrooms (views in each!) that come with their own private terraces, rain showers and more. There are a lot of little nooks and lounge areas throughout, which really make it feel all the more special. Outside living calls for a private pool, sun beds and hammocks surround by lush tropical gardens. With great local restaurants, shops and plenty of historical sites and natural wonders nearby — there’s so many reasons to love this secluded and sophisticated stay in Tulum…
4. LATIGO VIEW MALIBU
SLEEPS: 8 | BEDROOMS: 4 | BATHROOMS: 3
If you’ve ever dreamed of having a modern beach house in Malibu, Latigo View Malibu will easily fulfill that fantasy in real life. Grab your besties (maybe some of them are also expecting!) for this private home high-up in the hills of Malibu with sweeping views of the Pacific plus all the amenities to accommodate your closest. The modern art-filled estate is an entertainers dream, featuring a light-filled living space that opens up to a stone-paved terrace — the perfect setting for sun-soaked days and intimate gatherings come night. Think: sipping mocktails around the alfresco dining table and making s’mores on the fire pit under the stars. It’s just minutes from Malibu’s finest beaches, shops and restaurants — making it a no-brainer for a babymoon with your besties before your family of two becomes three.
5. WAILEA BEACH RESIDENCE
SLEEPS: 6 | BEDROOMS: 3 | BATHROOMS: 3.5
Located on Maui’s most enviable beach, Wailea Beach Residence C101 is another great stay for a group babymoon that’s surrounded by swaying palm trees and the greenest of grounds. Say aloha to the seclusion a private residence and the amenities of a beachfront resort. It’s an open-concept, very spacious three bedroom villa that allows you to experience the best of Hawaii’s laid-back island lifestyle — and like a local. Though you have your own private plunge pool, you’ll be moments from Wailea’s amenities should you want a change in scenery. You’ll also be able to experience the other luxury resorts nearby, with a complimentary shuttle that will take you to the area’s best beachfront clubs, bars, and restaurants!
