Group Getaways: Booking Spacious Accommodations for Large Parties

Planning a summer getaway with your nearest and dearest? Limiting the invite list to a handful people is simply too hard – so why not invite the entire crew?

Group getaways are always the best kind of getaways. You’ve got everyone together, enjoying a big and beautiful holiday home, and because you’re splitting the costs between so many people, your dollar goes much further.

Here are a few tips and recommendations from the team at Ocean Blue Coastal Retreats – Mornington’s Peninsula’s expert group for spacious luxury accommodation.

Tips for booking spacious accommodations for large parties

Here’s everything you need to know about booking the perfect accommodation for large groups:

  • Location
    Location is everything when booking group accommodation for large parties. Sure, it’d be lovely to organise a week-long stay in a villa with all your friends and family in Tuscany or Croatia… but when you’re trying to organise large groups of 10, 12 or 14 people, it’s simply not realistic. The Mornington Peninsula is in a winning location, since it’s a stone’s throw away from Melbourne yet it feels like you’re somewhere totally different.
  • Space
    How spacious is ‘spacious’? A getaway for a large group relies on having enough space for each and every member of your party. Make sure each getaway home on your shortlist has enough beds for each person or couple… and of course there’s usually that one single friend who’s fine with sleeping on the couch.
  • Pets
    Is your band of merry folk travelling with some furry friends? Make sure your group getaway accommodation is pawfect for pets!
