Tot Travel: Bienvenidos a Miami...

Miami might not be top of mind when traveling with kids... by why shouldn't it be? Kid & Coe - the booking site for family-friendly house stays around the globe - has become my go-to travel resource of late. Ever since our apartment rental in Rome I'm completely sold on the concept of renting a home.  If you plan to be at your destination for any length of time, a home will be much more accommodating to little ones and teens than a hotel.  

Warning: this swanky Florida pad might just be too hot to handle. Jet skis, a separate villa for extra guests, modern interiors and a chef's dream of a kitchen, this Di Lido island residence sleeps up to 14. Yes, that's an infinity pool and the sleek three-story house has an elevator too. Gaze out at downtown Miami while sipping your morning OJ in that massive bath tub. I die! Hello, nighttime excitement and incredible daytime fun. 

Why is a house stay such a win for families? For one, you can really settle in for your stay. A home allows for entertaining, preparing home cooked meals (or hiring a chef), enjoying your own schedule and really customizing your schedule. And finding the right residence continues to get easier with sites like this one gaining traction. 

But back to this fabulous waterside Miami home... flying south for the winter is starting to sound like a very, very good idea. While your brood of minis might not have the same affinity for Art Deco buildings and rooftop sushi, I assure you this south Florida destination has something for everyone. Besides... you've got an infinity pool. What more could a kid ask for?

Luxe Accommodations: Kid and Coe...

Travel with children is an entirely new experience. With one I felt limited. With two I feel determined. Nothing is going to stop my insatiable need to roam the earth. I will concede that it's far easier to convince the Mr. to hope on a flight to a domestic location. Even better if said location is a high end rental property where we can truly unwind and settle into a vacation frame of mind. Enter: Kid and Coe, family vacation rentals with you and your brood in mind. Homes and locations are vetted for their tot-friendly nature and proximity to things you (and your mini-you's) will love doing. 

Fear not... you won't find yourself in a home across town. These are incredible properties all over the globe. Think: Vienna, Laguna Beach (my personal favorite on the domestic front), the Greek Islands and beyond. This is VRBO and Airbnb for those of us with little ones in tow. 

Do you know what this means? No. More. Excuses.
