I heard that there are nice apartments in Florida, where Pesach is completely catered.
Does such a thing exist in NY or NJ?

I've never heard of it. When I saw your title, I immediately thought of the FL programs that advertise this service, never seen it anywhere else.

Is the "Different Pesach Program" less expensive than going to a hotel, or just more luxurious accommodations?

I don't know if there is any difference in price, but it would suit my extended secular family far better than a hotel program.

I think it's supposed to be more affordable.

Sorry about the doom and gloom but you might want to google reviews about this type of program. I read terrible reviews - I think on Chowhound Kosher - on one of them, so check it isn't this one!

This may not work for you, but think that it is very doable to do on your own. Find a suitable rental on air bnb or vrbo.com. In my experience lots of these are very clean to start. Take one day to kasher. Order prepared food to be delivered from one of the many caterers that do Pesach. Buy lots of disposables....Just a thought.

I think Highland Park Colony in Woodridge offers Pesach accommodations, with or without food

You could order food to be shipped anywhere. Rent a house near a shul and hire a maid service to clean. You could probably even do this in areas like Tannersville or hunter near the shul.

OP here.
I don't want to be blow torching and silver foiling a rental. Also kashering questions can pop up in an unfamiliar place, and I'm not planning on renting much ahead of Pesach.
I had assumed that the Orlando apartments would not require kashering?

How would I find out more about this? I googled, but didn't come up with anything.

I think you might want to post here, too. For the kind of prices even these cheaper than hotels programs charge, I bet you could find some imamother who knows of a vacant apartment nearby, and would be glad to supply food and babysitting.

Do I get a referral fee if it works out? Wink

I'm sure you could hire someone to do the actaul kashering as well.

I really need things to be smooth and seamless, we're talking about secular people with high standards when it comes to accommodations.

I'm not doing this to save money (the relatives are willing to pay), I'm really doing this because I think it would be awkward for them to be at one of the standard Pesach programs. We want them to feel comfortable, and not like they are a "kiruv project". We are so grateful that they choose to spend Pesach with us (when there are many less limiting options out there!). We just don't want to mess up the delicate balance by throwing in a whole group of strangers to the mix.

If we can get the "service" without the crowds that would be ideal.

Please don't judge me, I usually make my own Pesach, I just don't think I'm up to pulling it off with all these people this year.

But I do appreciate all suggestions and recommendations!!

saw u posted about this elsewhere and just putting it out there that if u go to a luxe and more chilled program they don't shove speeches down ur throat... I know ppl that had similar situations and their relatives really enjoyed the over the top fancy yom tov and felt very comfortable...

I know lots of traditional people who go to pesach programs and enjoy them. Not that I have been to them, but I didn't think they were kiruv style, but more about having fun.

Yes, true. If I could find a place with the right balance I would certainly opt for a hotel:

Sophisticated, classy (but not grossly lavish)
Not kiruv style
High kashrus standard
Down to earth crowd (my relatives' eyes would pop if there were a fashion show at every meal)

I've no experience of Pesach hotels, and I guess I"m nervous to risk it on my relatives' tab.
I figured a high end catered rental would be lower risk...
