Sometimes, when I allow myself the time, I like to grab an ice-cold glass of wine, sit down and scroll through different websites – bookmarking hotels and destinations that catch my eye… It’s a pleasant pastime, as not only do I get to daydream about all the wonderful countries I want to visit but I also love looking a properties that make me want to run out and grab a lottery ticket. Kid & Coe is just brimming with these locations and properties – and not all of them come with a hefty price tag.

Kid & Coe

You’ve all heard of Airbnb, right? Well, Kid & Coe runs on the same premise except they are all child-friendly properties and oh boy – their portfolio is just full to the brim of amazing apartments, houses and villas that have rooms which look like they’ve just been photographed for 25 Beautiful Homes. But, even though some begin from a reasonable £100 per night, there are others which are just out-of-this-world, and it would be rude not to share them with you. The five properties I have chosen are all in countries and cities that are on my radar for the next few years. It’s nice to have something to aim for!

Cape Cod, USA: The Windmill ResidenceCape Cod Kid & Coe

What’s so special about it? 

Not only is it in a superb location, Centerville – one of Cape Cod’s most classic villages, it’s also built around around a 19th-Century Windmill. If the close proximity of the Nantucket Sound beaches isn’t good enough, the house is surrounded by acres of private grounds landscaped by Frederick Law Olmstead, the designer of Central Park. In them, you’ll find ponds with ducks and bullfrogs, a private heated swimming pool, a rope swing and a beautiful Japanese rose garden. Across the street, there’s a playground and it’s just a five-minute drive to private residents’ beaches. There’s plenty to do nearby, from whale watching in season to visits to Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.

Novigrad, Croatia: The Rivarella Villacroatia Kid & Coe

What’s so special about it? 

This contemporary, yacht-inspired luxury villa with a pool surrounded by ancient city walls is private and peaceful but only steps away from shops, cafés, and restaurants. It also has breathtaking views from three private terraces, with spectacular 360-degree panoramic vistas of the Adriatic Sea and the picturesque town of Novigrad. The ensuite bathroom also has a jacuzzi and a private sauna.

Paris, France: The Albert De Mun ResidenceParis Kid & Coe

What’s so special about it? 

Location, location, location. The view of the Eiffel Tower says it all – and you can enjoy it from the table and chairs on the outdoor balcony, too. Set in the heart of Paris, the apartment is perfectly based to explore the city by foot. The minimalist and eclectic decor and furnishings in this two-bed is also a huge draw.

Provence, France: The Rue De La Clastre Residenceprovence Kid & Coe

What’s so special about it? 

This historic home with a stunning vine-covered stone facade is set in the charming medieval village of La Montagnette at the base of the Alpilles. It’s a perfect base for exploring the beautiful Provençal countryside on foot while enjoying all local amenities from a baker, butcher and a pizza truck close by. All the rooms have a distinct shabby chic feel to them and there’s plenty of space for the kids to run about. Oh, and did I mention the private swimming pool set amongst the landscaped gardens and the playground nearby?

Puglia, Italy: The Morella ResidencePuglia Kid & Coe

What’s so special about it? 

Surrounded by two acres of rural fields filled with wildflowers, olive, almond and fig trees, this white stone Puglian Trullo has been renovated to provide luxurious accommodation while maintaining original features including barrel vaulted ceilings and arched doorways. The main draw is the outdoor dining terrace, pool and kids pool – and a house full of kids toys and books. Plenty to keep the little ones entertained!
