No one will ever admit it, but many newlyweds secretly believe that the honeymoon is the best part of getting married. But why shouldn't it be? Planning a wedding. The honeymoon is your and your partner's time to finally kick back, relax, and be together as a married couple, free from interruptions. However, that doesn't necessarily mean you have to reserve the swankiest suite at the most luxurious resort to celebrate your union. Thanks to companies like onefinestay, there are plenty of alternatives around the world that are just as good, if not better than your typical hotel.

Private homes are a perfect choice for the couple that wants their peace and solitude, but also enjoys the amenities of a five-star hotel. Whether you're looking to save a few bucks or want to escape a crowded hotel, consider these incredible, albeit untraditional lodging options around the world.
