Because at the end of the day, who’s always gonna be there? That’s right: the girls you took on this Galentine’s trip.

1. Bronson––Lake Tahoe, CA

We’re starting off with a bang at this beaut in Lake Tahoe. Feel all types of love waking up with your ladies surrounded by fresh powder on one of the most prime ski-in/ski-out rentals in Olympic Valley.

2. Dume Point––Malibu, CA

Picture you and the ladies at this Malibu mansion—serving both looks and aces on your private tennis court. When it gets chilly at night, cozy up fireside where the choice is yours: is it time to spill the ultimate tea, or are we all about to have the best heart-to-hearts of our lives?

♡ Fav amenities: private tennis court, outdoor pool, badminton net, corner fireplaces + gold accents


3. Monarch––Destin, FL

Located on the opposite end of the country, you’ll find crystal clear waters and the pristine beaches of Destin. That’s where we meet Monarch: the ultimate destination to dive into your divine feminine. Have boozy brunches with the ladies on any of the three balconies. Serve mimosas with heart-shaped ice cubes at the swim-up bar. Craft charcuterie boards around the outdoor kitchen. Cheers to friendship on the rooftop patio.

4. The Marley Hotel—Palm Springs, CA

If your dream Galentine’s trip includes a touch of the outdoors, try this pretty and pink hotel in Palm Springs where you and the gals can post up by the pool with views of the San Jacinto mountains. Spend nights around the fire pit. Admire vintage aesthetics with a touch of 50’s charm. 

♡ Fav amenities: the cutest pool and spa, pink interiors, multiple private patios


5. Chicory––Joshua Tree, CA

Speaking of pink, this home in Joshua Tree has plenty of it. From the kitchen backsplash to the living room built-ins to the sunsets outside, the feminine energy is here to stay at Chicory. Spend days hiking the national park nearby. Bake heart-shaped brownies in the kitchen. Put your favorite tunes on the record player.

♡ Fav amenities: private pool, pink built-in shelves, al-fresco dining, record player, fire pit


6. Blackhaus Hotel––Palm Springs, CA

Ok now girlies, the ball is in your… private bocce ball court, because this Palm Springs hotel has plenty of those. Here you have the option to book a room or two, or truly ball out and buy out the whole hotel. Lounge by the pool. Pretend to be grill master on the BBQ. Soak in the Palm Springs sun with your best friends by your side and cheers to the end of the patriarchy.

♡ Fav amenities: the ability to buyout the whole hotel, gorgeous pool, bocce ball courts in many rooms, outdoor fire pit


7. Ocean’s Eye––Charleston, SC

Get in girls, we’re going to the beach. Some may say Charleston is known for its vibrant history, beautiful beaches and delicious eats—but we think it’s known for how perfect this house is. Spread out among 6 bedrooms. Swim in your private pool. Swim in the not-so-private ocean, just steps away. Sip your drink and win a putt-putt game. Brunch on the dining table outside.
