WHY RENT A VILLA FOR YOUR HOLIDAYS?

Thursday, September 13th, 2018

Holiday time is precious, so when it’s time to unplug, unwind and get away, you’ll want to ensure that every moment is enjoyed to its potential. Which is why many people are turning to luxury vacation homes instead of hotels for their vacations.

Offering unrivalled luxury, a private space to unwind and great value for money, there’s plenty of reasons to make the switch. Still need convincing? Here’s seven good reasons why you might want to consider renting a villa for your next break…

Villa Silvana

Enjoy Privacy

If holidays are about one thing, it’s getting-away. Renting a villa provides the perfect way to escape the daily grind without having to share your space with strangers. A private pool all to yourself, an outside dining space exclusively for your party – and in most cases, no immediate neighbors. Many luxury villa rentals, like Villa Silvana in St Barth’s, offer seclusion and luxury in a hilltop retreat, within easy reach of the beach.

Family with Kids in Pool

Value for Money

Contrary to popular belief, a luxury villa rental can be a great way to enjoy value for money. When you consider the sheer size of the property you have access to, often with added bonuses such as free parking, WiFi, gym access, cable TV and a private pool – the perks add up. If you enjoy self-catering, then it’s also a great way to cut back on expensive hotel food and drink. Furthermore, with the flexibility to check-in and out at your leisure, it makes for a stress-free way to spend a well-earned break.

Villa Rochelle

Great for Groups

Holidaying with a group of friends or extended family? Hotels aren’t always the most convenient way to spend quality time together, with groups often spread out. Luxury vacation homes, however ensure that you can spend time together without compromise. Villa Rochelle in Ibiza, for instance, is a breath-taking property offering 16 bedrooms for larger groups. It comes complete with private pool, gym, dance floor and chill-out tent (yes, chill-out tent!) to create an unforgettable vacation.

Women Shopping

Live Like a Local

The best way to immerse yourself in a culture is to live like a local. This can be hard to do when you’re surrounded by fellow holidaymakers. However, since villas are located in private neighborhoods and highly desirable locations, it’s likely that you’ll get to experience a different side of your destination. It also enables you to shop and dine like a local too!

Businessman

For Business and Pleasure

More and more we’re seeing business travelers bringing their families with them on work trips. Villas provide the perfect ‘home from home’ for families to base themselves, offering areas to work and play, without distraction.

Villa Vanya

Exclusivity

If for no other reason, a luxury villa rental gives you access to the most exclusive properties available. For example, the highly desirable residence of Jungle Island in Miami is home to Villa Vanya, one of the most exclusive properties in the area. It features waterfront views and seven impeccably decorated bedrooms in 10,500 sq ft grounds. It’s as close to a ‘money can’t buy’ experience as you could hope for.

Foodies

Foodie Lovers

Vacation homes are the way to go for foodies. With most properties boasting gourmet kitchens and endless dining spots, inside and out, it’s the ideal way to self-cater, especially enjoyed by larger groups.

Girls by Pool with Staff

Five-Star Treatment

And finally, you don’t have to stay in a five-star hotel to reap all the benefits of luxury. Villazzo offers luxury villas with an in-house concierge service, on hand to meet all your needs.
