Zoie Kingsbery Coe, founder of vacation rental site Kid & Coe , traveled the world with her deejay husband, managing his career (first as a couple, then with two kids in tow). Out of necessity, she began compiling a list of rental houses all over that welcome kids; when her friends entreated her to share her list, Kid & Coe was born. Little more than a year later, the New York–based company offers family vacationers sophisticated, kid-friendly rentals on six continents (no Antarctica, yet). We browsed the site and found inspired kids' decor worldwide. Amsterdam Above: The Wouwermanstraat residence in Amsterdam offers two double bedrooms and two kids' rooms in an early-1900s building. Its three floors are outfitted in Scandi-style whites and grays; €475 to €500 (about $590 to $620) per night. Above: Amsterdam's  Keizersgracht  is on the third and fourth floors of a renovated canal house, within walking distance of the Anne Frank House and an organic farmer's market. The living room sports a hot pink sofa and the kitchen comes with Philippe Starck Louis Ghost chairs; €275 to €300 (about $340 to $370) per night. Above: The Brahmsstraat home in Amsterdam occupies the ground floor and lower level of an apartment building with a large backyard garden. Charming modern furnishings include a tepee in one of the kids' rooms and a light-filled, brick-walled kitchen; €250 (about $310) per night. Barcelona Above: Barcelona's  Diputació residence is a circa-1900s flat with one adult room and two kids' rooms. It's within walking distance of the city's central attractions and bicycle distance of the beach and zoo; €150 (about $186) per night. Berlin Above: The Ballenstedter home in Berlin can accommodate a small family in one large room with a double bed, a kids' bed, and a crib on the third floor of an apartment building. Sightseeing is nearby, as are local parks and a playground behind the building; €70 (about $87) per night. Lisbon Above: The cheery  Rua Bombard  residence in Lisbon is decorated with artifacts from the owners' travels. The nursery has twin cribs, plus a play table and plenty of toys. A child-safe terrace overlooks Lisbon's rooftops and river; €80 to €90 (about $100 to $112) per night. New York Above: In New York's Hudson Valley, the 1930s residence sleeps five and has a playroom, covered front porch, and sprawling yard with a tire swing, baby swing, and hammock. Older kids can explore swimming holes nearby; $300 per night. Above: This West 11th Street  residence in New York City is located in the West Village near parks and playgrounds (one kids' room has a double bed and the other has bunk beds). Renters are free to use the on-site skateboards, scooters, and helmets; $750 to $850 per night. Paris Above: The Faubourg  apartment in Paris is on two floors with high ceilings and sleeps two adults and two children (there's also an extra crib). Kids can play in the playroom and private courtyard; the Centre Pompidou is a 20-minute walk away; €200 to €250 (about $250 to $310) per night. Sydney Above: The Cambridge Street house in the Paddington area of Sydney has three bedrooms, a nursery, a small private terrace, and a shaded deck with a play area; $500 per night.
