Like many in the first world, I and my family are overworked, underslept, barraged by material possessions, and in a stressful environment far from serene nature.
Due to various work, school, and moving plans, we are free of external location constraints, and have the opportunity to toss all our things in storage and spend some months living anyplace (with an internet connection to work from) this coming fall.
There are lots of resources about digital nomadism online, but they don't cover the key aspect of what we are looking for, which is the serenity, beauty, and ease of a resort or cruise experience. In other words, amenities like a vacation, so we can rest and heal, except we will be working, homeschooling, etc.
We researched cruise ships first, because while they're a bit expensive and the internet is not always great, we love cruising and the amenities (food, laundry, cleaning, walkability, spa, gym, babysitting) are ideal. However, as our pet is part of our family, cruising is not an option for a months-long trip.
So my question is whether there is a moderately priced place that would offer us that minimal, beautiful, all-inclusive, low effort healing experience, like a cruise ship or a big 4/5-star hotel. Basically, if we're willing to fly anywhere, be in a remote place, and stay for a few months, can we get that "everything taken care of" lifestyle at US big-city maximal lifestyle prices?
Some of the places that come up in Nomad List searches are Rethymno, Bali, Jeju Island, Portugal, Menorca/Mallorca. But it's hard to tell if they fit what we need. Advice on places, how to search, etc. please!
