Lots of folks who live in Southern California have landed here from other parts of the country where the weather is not quite as nice as ours. Well, now that we think about it, NO place really has weather nearly as nice as ours, right? These transplanted Californians delight in some things that are completely foreign to us natives. For example, never once has your faithful blogger delighted in NOT having to shovel snow. In fact, he has never even held a snow shovel. But if you were born and raised in Minnesota, that simple statement would set your head spinning with a great big smile on your face. Southern California is sort of like the Emerald City to these folks. It’s a dream land where nobody really needs a heavy coat, black ice is something you get when you pour Coke into the ice tray, and the sun actually seems to shine brightly almost every day of the year. Yes, Toto, you really aren’t in, err, Minnesota any more.
Many of these folks become then envy of their less-fortunate relatives still trapped in the arctic climates from which they fled. And the contrast in the weather is never so dramatic as when the holidays arrive. Your weekly phone conversation with Uncle Julius in Minneapolis invariably covers exactly how long it took him to shovel out the driveway so he could find the car. And if he’s really lucky, he’ll tell about the wonderful new snowblower he just bought. You can smile and tell him about the wonderful new lawnmower you just bought. It’s quickly apparent that the two of you — though once neighbors — now reside on entirely different planets.
But the holidays are a time for gathering with friends and family from all the far flung areas they’ve landed. And it would be a crime NOT to offer a brief respite to those you love by hosting your own holiday get-together at one of our luxurious Southern California or Mexico vacation rentals. You’ll certainly be more popular with the snow-bound relatives, and you may decide to become a Realtor so you can profit from the relocation that many of them will begin planning as soon as they return home and their feet hit the hard, frozen soil. Be sure to tell them you can get them seats at the Rose Parade, and they won’t need a parka for it either.
We have some great choices for a warm-weather winter getaway. All of our vacation rental units are luxuriously furnished and promise to provide an amazing setting for your family and friends to enjoy the holidays together.
Our Southern California beach homes are located within walking distance of the beach and offer an amazing level of luxury. The beach homes are also ideally located to serve as a home base for visiting all of Southern California’s favorite attractions from Sea World, just a couple hours to the south, and Hollywood studios an hour or so to the north. Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm are even closer. Click here for a closer look at our Southern California beach homes.
If you have a very large group, our best accommodations may be with our Villa La Estancia Mexican resort vacation rentals located right on the beach in Puerto Nuevo. We have 16 units available in the resort, so we can accomodate a group of virtually any size. The resort is located just a few minute’s drive from the Puerto Vallarta Airport, and all southern California airports offer direct flights. Trust us, Aunt Mildred from Detroit will rewrite her will to include you after she spends an hour in the on-site spa at Villa La Estancia. In addition to the ocean swimming and boating, all the golfers in your group will enjoy the championship golf courses nearby as well. Good luck getting them all back on the plane to Minnesota after that! Click here to view our Villa La Estancia vacation rentals.
Our Palm Springs/La Quinta vacation rentals are a special delight during the holidays. Palm Springs pulls out all the stops at Christmas time, and the entire family will delight in great shopping, shows, and amazing restaurants. Our vacation rentals are right on the golf course, so you can have everybody back east dust off their clubs and enjoy a few rounds while their neighbors back home will be lifting nothing but their snow shovels. It makes for a perfectly delightful time. You can look at our Palm Springs/La Quinta properties on this page.
