Agree with the above, other than the antisocial bit.

Not for me at all: I'd no more share a condo with another family than I'd share a house with another family here!

I'd rather wait until I had saved the extra 375 to holiday in our own condo.

Put simply, a 375 saving isn't worth the risk of it all going pear shaped, and IMO the OP was exceptionally lucky that it didn't end up being a complete disaster. Plenty of cheap hotels for 375 anyway.

Well it appears I was VERY VERY lucky

A plus side is 375 = $600 free tiffanys vouchers



The wife liked that bit



Actually I never told her that till now... She would have melted my credit card

Whether they're friends,family or strangers.
I have to agree with this, our two weeks are just me & DH

However, so glad it worked for you, sounds like you had a great time

Our family did this once years ago and never again. Our family (with two children) went on holiday with another family (also with 2 children). We were quite close friends and thought it would be so nice to spend a vacation together. Well, she sat around the whole week reading romance novels while I entertained the kids. My husband and I, along with her husband, did all the cooking, washing up, etc. Her husband finally blew up and told her to start helping out and they had a big argument. It kind of put a damper on the vacation.
You were very lucky.

Not for us. Haven't done it and haven't thought about it . DH's view is that this is our time away from everything else and time to spend together. He won't even consider going away with family now for that same reason . Any savings wouldn't be worth the risk for us, we'd rather be on our own whatever the cost.

And me.

I don't do people either
I value my privacy far too much.
A saving of 375 is no where near enough.

O/H would be worried about what I would say next. Apparently I am going through a phase of this... He sometimes looks a bit scared when people ask me something... just wondering what sort of answer they will get...
