You know the old saying, “Go big or go home!” Well now you can go big AND go home because one of the hottest trends in travel is renting luxury homes and villas for your vacation.
And of course it couples perfectly with the other current trend of multi-generational or multi-family travel, aka “Pod Travel” because travelers are being selective with whom they share space. And it doesn’t hurt that splitting the costs of a larger home can lead to some serious vacation value.
This isn’t a new idea.
Airbnb, VRBO, etc. have been inviting strangers into others’ homes for years, so what’s different now?
Now we are seeing an uptick in requests for vetted properties, and by vetted, I mean sanitized, serviced, and sensational when it comes to amenities and experience. So let’s break that down…
Room for 9 with 5BR and secluded luxury at DORATA along the Amalfi Coast in Italy
SANITIZED…It’s the elephant in the room but you have to ask. Those VRBO pics may look great, but can they really guarantee you peace of mind and cleanliness? Always an important factor, but even more so now. My clients are looking for proof of cleanliness and safety being prioritized during their adventure, so rather than booking through strangers off the internet, they turn to me because I look to my VIRTUOSO partners who specialize in luxury homes and villas, and I know I can trust them to share my priority of client safety.
One such partner is VILLAS OF DISTINCTION and if you follow that hyperlink you’ll discover incredible options around the globe, but if you explore their site, be sure to send your favorites back to me. In addition to booking direct through VOD for their best pricing, my clients receive special perks and amenities by booking through me, and that leads us to…
SERVICED…One of those perks is a “Concierge Services Credit” which many are using towards extras such as a personal chef. I mean who wants to sweat in the albeit chef’s gourmet kitchen all week on vacation? That’s the beauty of renting homes and villas within our luxury network…all the space and incredible “dream home away from reality home” features within, but still having the resort experience and every wish granted through impeccable service. You won’t find that on VRBO.
SENSATIONAL…and finally, the WOW! I have personally toured several of the properties you’ll find on Villas of Distinction, and all I can say is if ever the saying “the pictures don’t do it justice” was true, this is it! From resort sized private pools, to themed game rooms with golf simulators, no attention to detail has been spared..these homes were built to impress!
And just because most of these luxury villas can accommodate larger groups, it does not mean honeymooners and those looking for a romantic getaway need to shop elsewhere. ZABUCO, at Secret Bay in Dominica pictured below, is perfect for 2 guests who want the feel of renting their very own secluded villa combined with discreet yet personalized five-star service.
With over 2,000 luxury options worldwide, my partners at VILLAS OF DISTINCTION are sure to have a home suited for every luxury travel goal.
