How to take a mini vacation in your new home

Posted on August 18th, 2014

how to vacation at homeWhen you buy a custom home, you have a house that has been built exactly to your specifications. This home should provide you with the ultimate in comfort and convenience. For many people, comfort is what you venture out on vacation for. Rather than spend unnecessary time and energy planning and traveling to another location, take your relaxation to the next level by enjoying your next vacation right at home.

Day at the spa

For many, spas represent the ultimate in relaxation. Recreate the experience in your backyard at your luxury custom pool or hot tub. Hire a professional masseuse to offer you and your spouse or a friend the full luxury massage experience in your custom home. Have a beautician come as well and get a facial, manicure, and pedicure the same day. Pre-make some snacks and fun drinks to serve throughout the spa day and enjoy a day of luxury.

Private bed and breakfast

Take advantage of the romance and enjoyment of the bed and breakfast, but in the comfort of your own bed. Hire a chef for the full day and begin the day with breakfast in bed, or at least in your room. Continue the day by relaxing by the pool with light snacks and having a delicious mid-day meal and siesta. Then enjoy the afternoon by playing a relaxing backyard game, or just reading a book in your beautiful custom homes’ backyard. The evening can be spent relaxing by an open fire in your beautifully built fireplace and some cocktails, followed by a late dinner by candlelight. Each meal can be custom ordered, cooked, and served by the chef to create the perfect experience of relaxation.

Wine tasting

Host a wine tasting party for a few close friends in your perfectly landscaped backyard. You can plan the party yourself, or hire a local planner to put the event on for you. Select some savory cheeses and other snacks to go along with the wines and bring the beauty and enjoyment of the vineyard home. Hiring a private chef or a catering company for this event to be held right at home can help bring it to the next level and leave you free to enjoy the night of luxury without having to do any work.

Host a “murder mystery dinner”

Recreate the popular hotel adventure at home by asking a party planner to hire an acting company to put on a “murder mystery dinner.” This idea is perfect for the more adventurous custom homeowners. The evening can be topped off with an evening screening of an exciting theme movie in your private, custom built home theater.

Have a catered lunch and at-home shopping afternoon

There are several high end retailers who will send a concierge to private residences to show the latest in fashion and accessory items and allow customers to shop from the comfort of their homes. Combine the experience with a catered lunch and enjoy a relaxing afternoon at home.

Vacations are opportunities for you to sit back and relax. One of the benefits of you Arthur Rutenberg Homes custom home is that your residence has been designed to meet your needs. Rather than waste energy venturing elsewhere, take advantage of this feature and enjoy a staycation with these fabulous ideas without leaving your home.
