Balkonien in English

Over at World Wide Words, Micheal Quinion has just announced the appearance of two versions of the German "Balkonien" (when you stay home [on your balcony] for vacation): naycation and staycation. A Brit, he is especially surprised to see the terms take off in the UK, where you go on holiday, not on vacation. I suppose "noliday" doesn't quite do the trick.
