There is always a bit of fog of the unknown brought on with any new experience – a fog which can breed myths and half-truths. In this post, I am going to dispel 3 common misconceptions around private luxury villa rentals. 1.

Any booking (provided it is a booking for the same season, number of days and guests, etc.) should have the same rates offered at all times. The increased business brought to villa owners by the work of agents is quite substantial. In the long term, it is in the benefit of the villa …

In this post, I’m going to attempt to give the most detailed explanation possible about what we personally consider a “luxury villa,” based on a series of criteria and requirements which we have sourced from our guests experiences over the years. As a preference, we’ve decided to only highlight villas with a minimum of four bedrooms. This is not to say anything less is not …

Selecting the proper luxury villa to set the stage for your vacation can be a bit of a task. While some Villa Owners may be a bit sensitive about sharing photos of their villa – a case managers, representatives, and agents have to respect – there should be at least a decent amount of photography and description to look through.
