Why holiday rentals?

Private holiday rentals now account for a significant share of the tourism market in many top destinations worldwide, and with good reason.

Renting a villa or apartment guarantees a private, personalised holiday experience, often a comfortable distance away from the tourist crowds.

What's more, thanks to the constantly expanding range of services on offer to guests, the hospitality choices often rival those provided by a good hotel.

Personalised luxury and services

The appeal of exclusivity and tailor made holidays is undeniable. As a guest at a private property, you enjoy the freedom to set your own schedule. 

There's no pressure to drag yourself out of bed in time for the breakfast buffet or join the compulsory Christmas brunch, and you can share your holiday with family or friends surrounded by home comforts and often stunning scenery.

Onsite facilities such as a high-speed internet, private pool, leading-edge home entertainment systems and even ensuite spa facilities make for the ultimate indulgent getaway. What's more, with a little research and planning, the overall cost can actually work out less expensive than an equivalent stay in a hotel or resort.

Not to count that in many parts of the world like in Asia and Caribbean each property is fully serviced by a team of maid, pool man, chef, managers who either live on site or are not far out of reach. Now this is what you call a holiday!

The holiday rental difference

With an extensive choice of locations, designs, configurations and amenities, private holiday rentals now cater to a wide range of tastes, needs and budgets.

Couples can enjoy a romantic, cosseted holiday by the sea, families can make the most of expansive grounds and dedicated kids facilities, while groups of friends can party to their own iPod tunes, without fear of disturbing other guests.

Active souls can also choose a villa or apartment that offers easy access to a range of adventure choices. In beachside locations in particular, water sports enthusiasts can stay right by the ocean, just steps away from the surf or reef.

Home away from home

For smaller families or groups, apartments are an appealing and personalised alternative to hotel accommodation.

In beach locations, apartments often come with spectacular sea views, while for city breaks, they offer prime downtown locations that make for a perfect home base to explore the sights, culture and nightlife on offer.

Increasingly, villas and apartments in many parts of the world also now come with a full suite of services and communal amenities such as room service and swimming pools, this allows you to stay close to the main attractions, while also enjoying all the facilities of a hotel or resort.
