Nothing says “vacation” like a tropical paradise, and these vacation rentals offer some of the best features we’ve seen. From multi-family casitas to uber-luxe palaces, each property has one thing in common: that tell-tale rustle of swaying palms that promise adventure and relaxation in equal doses.
So, without further ado, here are 6 of our favorite tropical vacation rentals.
Paradise in Palm Desert, California awaits 16 guests looking for space to spread out in luxe tropical style. With over 6,500 square feet of living space perched on an acre of gorgeous landscaping, this 7 bedroom/6.5 bathroom estate includes a main house, separate casita, detached game room, and adjoining bedroom, all with their own entrances for maximum privacy during your visit.

This 4 bedroom/4 bathroom tropical estate ready to host 10 lucky guests in La Quinta, California, is an incredible find. Tucked away in Indio’s luxurious gated community of Montage at Santa Rosa, restaurants, golf courses, spas, and hiking trails abound to cater for any whim. Spend the day soaking up the sun in one of the chaise lounges surrounding the shimmering pool, or spread out on the circular daybed for a well-deserved siesta amongst lush foliage. At night, the twinkling lights of the property’s private pergola will compete with nature’s finest mountain-star display, while the warming fire pit keeps the party going and guests perfectly comfortable al fresco, long into the evening.
Welcome to Fort Lauderdale, Florida done right! This exclusive 5 bedroom/3.5 bathroom villa sleeps 12 and is as welcoming outside as it is in! This Florida getaway includes something for everyone, from a pool with accompanying bar and hot tub, to a sauna with outdoor shower. Families will love the amenities for kids and adults alike, and the outdoor kitchen with dual KitchenAid BBQ grill makes whipping up meals for crowds both a pleasure and a breeze. Let the kids burn off the day’s energy while adults relax at one of several patio tables and bar seats under the covered patio: the perfect spot to let a cool breeze take the vibe from pool party to zen zone. A plethora of grocery stores and wine shops makes it easy to live like a local, while the beach (just across the street) means that those soothing ocean waves will lull you to sleep like the king of your own castle.
This very special bamboo bungalow is located in the upcountry area of Haiku, Maui, Hawaii. Guests at the property find their cares melting away during a stay in this unique 2 bedroom/1 bath Asian-style cabin. Built “eco-style,” the vacation rental’s design sleeps 6 and features a custom 1,800 square feet of covered living space. Each area is equally planned, from the stylish 1,000 indoor square feet to the further 800 outdoor square feet, spread out among three decks where the lush rainforest-fed gardens are a feast for all the senses. This house is truly one of a kind, and the opportunity guests have to absolutely get away from normal cares and woes is out of this world. Mahalo!
This Palm Beach, Florida hideaway combines the best of its original 1926 old-world charm and craftsmanship with exquisite modern finishes. The beautifully restored 4 bedroom/4 bathroom vacation rental sleeps 10 and is a perfect solution for groups or families traveling together: the property comprises a main house and charming, separate guest duplex. The West Palm Beach location makes this house an idyllic spot for lovers of “old Florida” — the historic El Cid area is justly famed as a playground for the rich and famous. Relax in the shimmering turquoise waters of the property’s private pool, surrounded by mature trees and scented with Florida’s famed citrus and floral combination. The romantic courtyard is perfect for entertaining, and the expansive yard gives kids a chance to run free while the adults enjoy a cocktail as the sun sets over the water.
This 3 bedroom/3.5 bath Palm Springs, California getaway comes with a real pedigree: the 1934 house was originally built as the winter retreat of JCW and Wilberta Hinshaw, developers of the historic La Plaza shopping center in downtown Palm Springs. Now known as Hinshaw’s Hideaway, the 2,336 square foot property comfortably sleeps 6 in true bohemian style. It’s hard to know where the indoors leaves off and the outdoors takes over: the house was built to merge the 2 into 1 eclectic experience, and the beautifully kept bluestone patio floor and Moroccan rug collection help to create 1 cohesive feeling. Meanwhile, the desert provides its own show, from the serene daytime vibe to the knock-your-socks-off sunsets that keep guests awestruck night after night… not to mention coming back, year after year.
