Formula 1 Comes to Miami – Here’s What You Need To Know

Thursday, May 5th, 2022


Calling all petrol heads, Formula 1® racing is finally coming to Miami, and we’re already gearing up for an epic time!

Promising to be a spectacle, the Miami Grand Prix enjoys its inaugural race in the city on 8 May 2022, taking place at the Hard Rock Stadium. The highly anticipated event is expected to draw in the crowds – well placed for the wealthy jet-set elite it attracts. Tickets are now available to see world-class teams including Red Bull Racing, McLaren and Renault go head-to-head.

But more importantly than that, we’ve got a host of luxury Miami villas, top clubs and places to soak up the action on your visit.

Where to stay
For an event as prestigious as Formula 1®, you’ll want to stay in stylish surroundings. There is no shortage of Miami villas for rent, however, here are the top three locations for your visit.

Miami Beach
If you want to be central to the action, including all the top bars, clubs, restaurants and of course South Beach itself – then there’s only one place for it. This bustling area is well located to all fun, ensuring you never have to miss out. Staying in this vibrant spot, you can still find Miami villas that offer tranquillity and privacy, for getting away from it all.

The Venetian Islands
There is nowhere better, or more sought after in Miami, than the archipelago of dotted islands that connect Miami Beach to Downtown. Otherwise known as the Venetian Islands, this delightful location is surrounded by nothing but sunshine and sea. Luxury rentals Miami are in high demand here – be sure to book in advance.

North Miami Beach
If you’re here for the Formula 1®, and want to be in parking distance to the Hard Rock Stadium, then north of Miami Beach is a good place to base yourself. There’s also plenty of shops and golden stretches of beach in the area to enjoy during a visit.

Where to watch the race
You don’t need to have tickets to the Grand Prix to enjoy the action. Miami has a host of sports bars if you plan to visit the city to soak up the fun and atmosphere at this time.

Grails in Miami Beach is a typical pub with wall-to-wall sports anytime you visit. For something a little more slick, Black Market in Miami Bayside serves up mouth-watering burgers with HD action shown on its many large screens. Finally, ESPN will be streaming the race, so you can kick back from the comfort of your Miami villa rental and watch it in peace.

After parties
One of the many reasons Miami was chosen to host the Grand Prix, is owing to its cosmopolitan crowd and vibrant culture. As such, you can expect lots of fun, even after the race is over.

The F1 Race Weekend Miami Celebration kicks off May 4 on a new giant podium outside the Hard Rock stadium with DJ Kygo on the decks. This is just one of several events taking place as part of ‘Racing Fan Fest’ – a free four-day event of daily entertainment with family-friendly attractions to enjoy.

As part of this, the Major Food Group is hosting a four-night supper club on Carbone Beach with American Express and Resy as co-sponsors. Guests can enjoy a smorgasbord of treats from Chef Carbone himself, and naturally, surprise guests. While, bringing all the party spirit, Red Bull promises to keep revellers energized at the Faena Hotel, Miami Beach – before, during and after the race. This includes DJ sets, athlete performances and much more.

However, there’s only one after-party you want to be on the VIP guest list for, and that’s the Amber Lounge. This is the official Grand Prix party that follows Formula 1® around the world. This slick, seductive affair includes live performance from a line-up of talent, and a smattering of A-list stars.

Why the Miami Property Rental Market is Booming in 2022

Monday, April 25th, 2022

When it comes to the property market, everyone wants to know what the next big trend is. But just look under your nose and you might realize why the Miami property management market is booming.

Sun, sea, beaches and five-star entertainment; there are some destinations that have it all, like say Miami.

So it’s no surprise that Miami continues to buck the market trend, as one of the key destinations for inward investment in 2022. Testament to this, the city celebrated its highest January sales this year according to the Miami Association of Realtors, from both domestic and international homebuyers.

Whether you’re thinking about getting into Miami property management, or renting out your property to maximize income, here’s some insight into why Miami real estate is booming right now.

Florida’s low taxes
One of the big draws to Miami is its low tax rate, which is currently set at 5.5%. According to a recent report, Florida boasts the “sixth-lowest tax burden in the U.S. and ranked 44th in individual income tax burden and 45th in overall tax burden.” It’s easy to see why it’s an attractive destination to live or invest in.

Finally and rather importantly Florida is a “no state income tax” state — only one of seven in the U.S. Need we say more!

Remote working
One of the big changes, thanks to the global pandemic, is the way we work. Remote working has become the new norm for many professionals, and is very much here to stay. A report published in Forbes shows that today a quarter of all professionals now work remotely. With this comes greater flexibility around lifestyle choices, such as where to live and base yourself from. With its stunning climate, great international connections and affordable real estate, Miami has become somewhat of a magnet to investors and Miami property management companies.

Low mortgage rates
Over the past two years, real estate in Miami has continued to break records, in no small part due to low mortgage rates. At the start of the pandemic mortgage rates were the lowest they had been in ten years. This favorable financing has continued to pull in buyers, and attract Miami property managers to the area.

Tech industry
A top trend that Miami property managers are seeing right now, is an influx of talent relocating to the city for work. Hand-in-hand with this, the city is enjoying an influx of investment from the tech industry, with brands such as Blockchain bringing their presence to the city. There’s even a suggestion that Miami could be the new ‘Silicon Valley’ which is no surprise with the first Bitcoin convention taking place this year in the city.

Lifestyle destination
But perhaps most compelling of all, given the past two years, the emphasis on living somewhere you love has never been more important.

Florida’s healthy lifestyle, glorious weather and five-star restaurants and bars make it a highly attractive place to live. That’s not all, the area has seen an impressive uptick in its facilities for families, be it shopping malls, schools and activities in the area, helping to expand its appeal beyond the youth and senior market. This has accounted for 2.7 million new residents to the city since 2010 alone.

Final thoughts
Miami has proven its credentials as a city to play and stay in. Attracting heavy hitters in the business world, and the subsequent talent it has brought to the city, has seen a surge in real estate demand, especially in the rental market. If there was ever the right time to invest in a buy-to-rent, the time is surely now.

Six Standout Features Every Luxury Property Villa Rental Should Have

Monday, April 18th, 2022

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.

Wellbeing
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.

Sustainability
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.

Deluxe touches
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.

Entertaining rooms
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.

If you’re looking to rent your home, Villazzo is one of the leading Miami property management companies. Get in touch today to find out more.

Why Florida Is a Celebrity Hotspot for Real Estate

Thursday, February 17th, 2022

With its year-round sunshine, miles of pristine beaches, theme parks, art scene, luxury villa rentals and world-class entertainment, it’s easy to see why Florida is one of the top destinations for tourists. But that’s not all.

 In recent years celebrities have succumb to its charms, buying up real-estate in record numbers. As such, the local population has more than triples since the 70s, adding more than 3 million residents every decade.

Whether you consider celebrities purveyors of good taste, or good investment, it’s fair to say that A-listers are no strangers to Florida’s real estate market. Let’s take a deeper dive into the Florida property scene, and see why the jet set are flocking here in numbers.

Nuevo cool

Let’s face it, everyone’s looking for the next big thing and while New York and Los Angeles are obvious hangouts, Florida is more understated. Not only is it the new ‘cool kid on the block’, but it’s becoming ever-trendy with names such as Kim Kardashian, Serena Williams and Jennifer Lopez buying up property in the Sunshine State. For those that can’t quite stretch to the multi-million price tag, there’s a host of luxury Miami villa rentals for a fraction of the price, making it a popular holiday destination too.

Tax haven

Investing in Florida real estate has a financial advantage too. The state’s average property tax rate is just 0.83% – much lower than the national average 1.07%. No wonder it’s a popular place for the rich and famous to invest their assets.  Amongst the most affluent areas is Palm Beach, Lake Mary and Belle Island.

And it’s not just tax savings either. A recent study found that groceries and electricity in Florida are much cheaper than the national average, making it a great place to live.

Waterside access

Surrounded by sublime turquoise waters, Florida is one of the most beautiful parts of the world. For the jet-set clique, this also means easy access to its waterways for sailing around the Bahamas, down to the Caribbean, or across the pond in the summer months. Since many villas in Miami Florida have private docks and waterside access, it’s a given that this would attract an A-list crowd.

The lifestyle

Make no mistake, finances and luxury aside, there’s something highly inviting about the Floridan way of life. Its sub-tropical climate offers mild winters and hot summers that make it a great place to visit all-year-round. 

Plus, Florida is home to world-class attractions, sports stadiums, bars and restaurants to rival any other state. From the playground of Disneyland to The Everglades and not forgetting the natural beauty of The Keys, it really is an all-round powerhouse and ultimate playground for those with discerning taste (and deep pockets!)

Natural beauty

Beaches, parks and oceans – Florida has them in abundance, and for the A-list community, this is highly appealing as a place to get away from it all.

Floridan resident Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has publicly stated that Florida is his favourite place to live, as homeowner to numerous properties in the State. He can often be seen hanging out in his pool, and working out in his luxury Miami home on his Instagram feed, for all the Miami vibes.

Villazzo leads the way in luxury villa rentals in all the top destinations worldwide.

Top 2021 Destinations for Coming Together Over Thanksgiving

Friday, November 12th, 2021

This year Thanksgiving is set to be bigger than ever, as families make up for lost time over the past year. Taking place on Thursday 25 November in the US, the date is slowly creeping up. However, it’s never too early (or late) to plan ahead, and it all starts with a spacious vacation rental for all the family.

If you’re ready for a get-away, we’ve hand-picked seven of our favorite destinations for all the Thanksgiving feels.

For winter feels – Aspen
Warming the coldest of hearts, the powdery slopes of Aspen invite you over for a long weekend. Cosy up in front of the fire and get in the festive mood, with log fires burning and eggnog brewing! It’s a romantic choice for couples, as well as popular with families too.

With their huge kitchens and endless dining space, Aspen villa rentals were made for big family gatherings.

When the turkey has settled, Snowmass mountain beckons with some of the best slopes you’ll find in the US.

Family fun – Miami
Miami villas are known for their decadence, style and swimming pools. If you’re looking to combine Thanksgiving with a mini break, this is the perfect place for you. Villa Sasha, for instance, boasts seven spacious bedrooms, with a large private outdoor space and plenty of indoor dining options. Thanksgiving in the sun doesn’t get better than Miami.

For big party vibes – New York City
There’s thousands of reasons why New York is a great choice for Thanksgiving. But perhaps one of the biggest is the infamous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. A stalwart in the diary since 1924, it attracts millions of party-goers with giant floats, musical acts and theatrical performance from Broadway stars. Perfect for couples and friends looking to party through the Thanksgiving weekend. Just be sure to book your villa rental in advance, as it gets busy.

The ultimate get-away – Hawaii
November is a great month to visit Hawaii – the busy crowds have dispersed and the weather is perfectly warm. Just a short flight from the west coast, it manages to feel a world away. If you fancy something a little different, try a luau Thanksgiving feast, full of Polynesian flavour – fun for all the family. And while you’re there, why not hit up the waves – since it’s home to some of the best in the world.

Beach life at its best – St Barth’s
Bring together your loved ones under the luxury and beauty of one of the best St Barth’s villa rentals on the island. This is the best way to enjoy privacy and luxury under one roof. Hire in a catering company to cook up your Thanksgiving feast, or take to one of the many five-star restaurants on the island. When the celebrations are over, there’s plenty of tranquil beaches for fully relaxing and making the most of your time on the island.

Calling all kids – Orlando, Florida

Hottest Areas to Buy a Luxury Villa Home in 2021

Friday, October 1st, 2021

It’s fair to say that over the past year we’ve all succumb to less travel, and more discovery on our own shores. This coupled with the need for more personal space has seen a surge in demand for luxury home villas. Indeed, you might be reading this as you search for some of the best properties to invest in.

As an established and global real-estate leader, our experienced teams at Villazzo Realty have hand-picked their top destinations to invest in a luxury mansion rental this year. With a focus on elite properties and ultra-luxury homes, here’s the hottest destinations everyone’s talking about.

Miami Beach, Florida
According to Forbes, luxury home rentals are continuing to surge this year, by at least 60% – the biggest jump since 2013. One of the reasons is because of the desire for larger houses and greater space, especially as working-from-home is on the rise. This, along with its glorious climate, is one of the reasons why Florida continues to attract buyers all-year round.

Miami Beach remains a popular choice for estate-hunters. No stranger to sprawling mansions and sweeping views across the bay, luxury Miami rentals are always in high demand. It makes for a great investment, with some 10 million visitors gracing its shores every year – ensuring there’s always a steady flow of visitors seeking premium villas for rent.

For the ultimate in exclusivity, the stunning islands in and around Miami, are home to some of the finest properties in America. This includes Palm and Hibiscus Islands and the highly coveted Star Island.

If you’re looking for a long-term investment, up and coming Brickell offers great value and is well-located to all the bustling nightlife the city is known for.

Orlando, Florida
In keeping with the Floridian vibe, Orlando offers a strong market for property investment and returns. Orlando luxury villas remain in high-demand, owing to their popular location for tourism and entertainment. The city is also well connected to other Florida hotspots, but with a more affordable price tag. With a growing population and job opportunities to boot, it remains a stable economy for those looking to relocate or buy a vacation home. Should you need further convincing, it was named the second fastest growing city in America by Forbes magazine.

Charlotte, North Carolina
It might be the ninth most populated state in America, but with acres of space to spread out and with coast to mountain terrains to explore, it’s a popular destination for those looking to add to their real estate portfolio. From the Blue Ridge mountains in the west, to its coastal beaches, and bustling towns, there’s something for everyone in The Tar Heel State.

Another point to note is that North Carolina luxury homes are large and spacious. Durham is one of the regions worth exploring, with its real estate outperforming the average US rental, especially in downtown, where new properties are growing at a pace.

Aspen, Colorado
Aspen is a city for all-seasons, especially appealing to outdoorsy types. Where else could you kayak in the summer, hike in the fall, and hit the slopes come winter? This is one of the many reasons why city dwellers have made the move during the pandemic, to relocate to the beautiful location.
Popular resorts like Snowmass, offer plenty of luxury Aspen homes for sale, known as a haven for the jet-set community. But, for a long-term investment on a more affordable budget, properties outside downtown offer greater value and even more space to enjoy. As such,
now is a great time to invest in the Aspen housing market.

Where the Biggest Celebrities Go to Vacation

Thursday, September 2nd, 2021

In the short space of 18 months, a lot has changed in the world of travel. Stalwarts like luxury Miami villas continue to hold their appeal, but we’ve also seen an influx of new destinations open up, especially those with plenty of space, or unique backdrops like Venice.

But why do the hard work to find your next vacation, when our favourite A-listers have done it for us!? If you’re looking for the latest trends in five-star vacations, then look no further than where our favourite celebrities have been flocking to this year.

Capri, Italy
With the fanfare around Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s romantic reunion, all eyes were on the Hollywood couple, during their recent travels to Italy. Styling it out on a $130 million super-yacht, they’ve taken to the seas, to tour the local region, including hot spot Capri. They weren’t alone, as Julianne Hough along with Kris Jenner and her beau Corey Gamble were all spotted in Capri in the last month. The luxury villas of Capri are always in demand, but with the recent arrival of ‘Bennifer’ it’s likely that they’ll be getting booked up way in advance for trend-spotting holidaymakers.

Lake Como, Italy
Not far from the dreamy views of Capri, is another jet-set favorite spot: Lake Como.

Home to stunning views, and jaw-dropping luxury villa rentals, it’s no surprise that it remains one of the top destinations for the glitterati. True to form, George Clooney and wife Amal were recently photographed during a visit – the couple are frequent visitors with their own holiday home in the area, which they enjoy with their family.

Nicole Scherzinger is also a fan of the chic Italian destination, sharing an Instagram selfie on a yacht in Lake Como in July, calling it simply a “magical place”
