Busy Moms Need a REAL Vacation
March 18, 2014
Growing up, many adults remember their family vacations trekking across the U.S. every summer, in the family car with the big luggage carrier on the roof.
The week before the big trip, Mom was always busy and exhausted having not only managed the house and family, she also packed up and got everyone ready. And then, when everyone finally arrived at their big destination, Mom’s relaxing vacation was spent, shopping, cooking, keeping everyone clean, and doing laundry.
While our own sepia-toned memories of family vacations are warm and fuzzy, as adult women we know and appreciate how much work went into these vacations and that mom really didn’t get a break until she got back home and the kids went back to school. In today’s world, as working women, with such little time allotted for vacations, we want to make sure they are not only fun and relaxing but cultural, exciting and with a lot of pampering. And clearly, we don’t want to have to do it all! After all, that’s how we are able to recharge our batteries which we all know is vitally essential in being the best that we can be.
Cooking and cleaning in a new setting is not a vacation. Having someone else to do that for you while you get to relax and enjoy the time away from home is a REAL vacation.
This is something we offer at Villa Perezoso. We want a place for everyone to relax and try something new, for the young, the old, and for particularly for moms . Vacations in Costa Rica are truly magical, to be treasured and remembered for a lifetime.
Here at Villa Perezoso, we designed a vacation experience ensuring that Mom doesn’t need to lift a finger. Our chef and his staff will prepare delicious, healthy meals for everyone to sit down and enjoy together (how often does that happen these days?). We have arranged activities the whole family can do together, without Mom doing all the planning (our concierge manages all of that for you). And you can even just relax at the beach where everyone and everything is picked up and dropped off — umbrellas, drinks, food, chairs, and so on. The kids can go surfing with our expert surfing instructors, while Mom can just sit and read, or even go surfing herself.
One of our guests, Christina McGovern, California, recently told us:
As a mom of four in a full time high pressure career when it comes to a place where I can truly vacation I look for a place of beauty, warm breezes, access to delicious fresh foods and innovative menus and at Villa P, we found it all in one breath-taking setting. Within a home away from home exquisitely appointed we could enjoy time with our family which, for me, is the best time of all. — Christina McGovern, Director of Development Medical Center UCSF
Poet William Ross Wallace once wrote, “The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.” But sometimes that hand needs to be strengthened and refreshed by a much-needed getaway where there’s nothing to pack, nothing to plan, nothing to cook.
Moms need a break from their regular vacations, so let Costa Rica vacations with Villa Perezoso give you exactly what you need. A chance to sit back, relax, and let someone else do the work all while making beautiful memories.
