Staff Picks: Across the Globe with Liz

By Elizabeth Young

When asked to pick a few of my favorite accommodations on our website, I really had to think. Working here, you come across so many amazing properties that it is hard to decide where to begin. When choosing mine, I decided to pick from four different categories: rentals I brought to the website as when I worked in the Sales Department, rentals I've visited, rentals on my bucket list, and rentals that everyone can afford. So let's take a look!

Dome in the Catskill Mountains, New York

This property stands out in my mind for a few reasons. Firstly, I am from New York and have visited the Catskill region many times—it's beautiful no matter what time of year you visit. If you're looking for an memorable outdoor getaway from Manhattan, the Catskill Mountains are an easy drive. Another reason is that this is one of the first properties I signed up on the website when I was working in Sales. It is a truly unique place, with a few different kinds of accommodations on the property and enough space for large groups to come and stay.

Villa Rental in Andalucia, Spain

Living in Andalucia, or southern Spain, means that you get almost a full year of sunshine and more than eight months of beach weather. I was lucky enough to visit this villa last year with a group of friends for my birthday. Not only was it an easy drive, but it was the perfect space for eight people and even has a pool. There are few things better than waking up surrounded by loved ones and spending your days under a sunny, blue sky by the pool.

When you stay here, you can visit many stunning coastal towns like Nerja and bigger cities like Malaga or Marbella. There's truly nothing like the Spanish sunshine, especially when accompanied by a glass of sangria or some delicious tapas.

Bucket List Mountain Getaway in Australia

The longer I work at Glamping Hub, the longer my bucket list grows—every day, I come across stunning properties that you could never even imagine existed. Forget that same hotel room that you always go back to, and this holiday, book somwehere really special. This secluded mountain cottage in Australia is a perfect example.

This cottage is truly one-of-a-kind, with a private location, a wrap-around deck, and a beautiful, modern interior. At the end of the day, relax under the stars with that special someone, perhaps with a glass of Australia's famous Shiraz.

A Pacific Northwest Getaway Everyone Can Afford

You may be thinking, "This list is getting a little expensive," and that may be true. To switch things up a little bit, I chose one of our most stunning, riverfront cabins, and the best part is, you can stay here for under $100 per night! On the banks of the Sandy River in Rhododendron, Oregon, guests have easy access to the Mount Hood National Forest, as well as the Mount Hood Skibowl and the Timberland Ski Area, for some outdoor fun all year long.
