Thailand is well-known among travelers for having spectacular views. That’s just one of the reason you’ll want to visit the Keemala Resort, which sits in a secluded hillside just 40 minutes from Phuket. The resort sits in the lush woodlands of Thailand, and offers a retreat from every day life. Guests of the resort can choose from four separate styles of huts: clay and straw cottages, tent villas, tree houses and birds nest villas.
Calistoga Ranch, Napa Valley, California. (possible Honeymoon location?) Foodies relish this California resort's wine-tasting seminars; all go gaga (including Lady Gaga herself!) for the 48 cottages' private patios and outdoor showers. The sublime Bathhouse Spa offers mineral pool soaks, healing mud wraps, and lavender body balm massages.
While I would prefer a 1-story house, this plan has all of the required elements. A garage could be added on the other side of the porte cochere. There is limited opportunity for two dog yard exits. Nice open living area with potential library/study upstairs.
