The rental market may be having its time in the limelight, but with great opportunity comes great competition.
There was once a time where location and architecture defined what it was to be a luxury villa. Not anymore. As consumers become more tech-savvy and sustainability creeps up the agenda, luxury villa rentals need to step up their offering. Taking insight from our Miami property management team, here’s six must-have features to make sure your property stands out for all the right reasons.
Privacy and Security
A private and secure home is one of the top requests that Miami property managers receive. In terms of location, a luxury villa that has waterside access, uninterrupted views and no onlooking neighbors will have a great advantage – this especially includes properties positioned on islands or in highly desirable locations. That’s not all, homes should be will equipped with state-of-the-art security systems, better still if they can be activated through face recognition or an App remotely. Gated entry and private parking are also highly sought after features.
Remote Working facilities
With so many of us working remotely these days, especially when away on business, it’s important that luxury villa rentals reflect this trend. Miami property management companies have been inundated with requests for fully-equipped properties with home offices and excellent connectivity. This extends to boardrooms, and large screens for Zoom meetings, as well as properties with large space for entertaining clients and guests in style.
Keep in mind that today many people travel with their families in tow, even for work. As such, versatile properties that have multi-functional facilities will appeal to growing families.
Travellers are increasingly looking to combine business with pleasure. This means that properties must be equipped with all the necessary equipment for more than a fleeting visit. Health and wellbeing is a high priority, so personal gyms and swimming pools are a pre-requisite. To take it up another notch, indoor steam rooms, luxurious saunas and yoga and meditation hangouts are growing in popularity.
As mentioned, keeping properties family friendly is a smart move. Grounds with
basketball courts, tennis courts and direct access are in high demand.
Conscious consumerism has arrived, and with it so has the need for eco-friendly properties. From solar energy to geothermal heat, properties today need to have considerate features to appease discerning clients.
One of the growing trends is towards electric vehicles, so ensuring your property is equipped with charging points will stand you in good stead.
Villazzo properties combine the best in privacy with five-star hotel like facilities. This is what makes us one of the leading Miami property management companies. We know what it takes to dazzle guests, and it goes beyond beautiful décor and sunset views.
Guests are looking for the ‘wow factor’ that gives them bragging rights. For instance, a James Bond style wine cellar, an infinity pool complete with cascading waterfall, a private dock for your superyacht, a rooftop terrace with surround-sound system, a deluxe private spa and your own bar complete with summer kitchen. These are just some of the most talked about features customers love.
A lounge – no matter how divine, is no longer enough. A games room, a personal cinema/theater, library and outdoor summer kitchen are just some of the demands of the rich and fabulous these days. Entertainment has come full-circle, and thanks to the pandemic, more and more guests are looking for ways to host events or celebrations within the confines of their private grounds. Be it the Super Bowl, a birthday or 4th July celebrations, a well-thought out luxury home should have a side room for hosting and impressing guests.
