Imagine enjoying a Hawaiian beach day with several of your closest friends or family and then returning to your temporary “home” at the end of the day to shower, rest and and share a “Pau Hana” (Happy Hour) Mai Tai on the lanai while your own chef prepares an amazing dinner with fish that was caught that very day. Or, imagine spending the day touring some wineries in the Tuscany or Chianti region of Italy with several of your buddies and getting “home” in time to take an afternoon swim and a nap before preparing a pasta dinner fit for a King… If those scenarios sound tempting to you, you are not alone! Villa Vacations are quickly becoming a preferred way of travel all over the world for small groups of friends and extended families. And, because of the popularity of Villa rentals in two of my specialty destinations – the Caribbean and Italy – I've been working hard to add a Villa selection to my offerings!
Villas are typically luxurious, private residences that are made available to vacation travelers. They usually range from 2 -10 bedrooms (but can go as high as 20!) and offer additional living spaces: living rooms, dining rooms, fully-equipped kitchens, games rooms and outdoor areas including Lanais (private verandas) and private pools. They are usually equipped with amenities and can also include a dedicated staff to cater to your specific needs. Do you want a cook to come in and prepare dinner? A housekeeper to freshen the house daily? A nanny who can watch the kids? DONE! And while luxurious, Villas are often more economical for traveling families and groups of friends.
