What’s more, with three, four, or even five bedrooms, these spacious vacation rentals are big enough to sleep several generations of a family or several couples (which means you can split the price). And, if you’re looking for a relaxing getaway, look no further. With a swim in the ocean and couple of margaritas under a palapa, the word stress no longer has meaning.
