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 share a “Pau Hana” (Happy Hour) Mai Tai on the lanai. At the same time, your chef prepares a fantastic dinner with fish 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 worldwide for small groups of friends and extended families. And, because of the popularity of Villa rentals in my specialty destinations – Hawaii and Europe – Tillie James Travel has been training hard lately to add a Villa division to our offerings!
Villas are typically luxurious, private residences made available to vacation travelers. They usually range from 2-to 10 bedrooms (but can go as high as even 20!) and offer additional living spaces: living rooms, dining rooms, fully-equipped kitchens, game rooms, and outdoor areas, including Lanais (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 to watch the kids? DONE!
And…while luxurious, Villas are often more economical for traveling families and groups of friends!
WHY rent a villa over a hotel or resort?
- Personalized attention and service from an experienced Villa Concierge
- Allows you to create a unique, customized vacation experience based on your dreams and needs
- Superb Value – spend less, receive more! Villas are often a better value per person than multiple hotel or resort suites.
- More space, privacy, and quiet – no strangers in the next room, by the pool, or in that hot tub!
- Great for all occasions – from big group gatherings to intimate getaways
- Many different options – Villas are available in areas across the globe
- Because YOU DESERVE IT! And your family & friends will think you are a ROCK STAR!
Does this sound like your kind of vacation?
Get that group together and start exploring! Travel is much more fun when you travel with those you love, and a Villa just might be the perfect solution for your next journey!
