As the world is slowly easing out of lockdown due to COVID-19 and international borders are slowly opening back up, who isn’t dreaming of some much needed time away? However, in the current climate, planning a trip can involve some novel constraints and raise questions about where you can stay and how to stay safe.
Many would-be travelers must be thinking, “is it safe?”
“Will I be able to enjoy myself or will all the extra health precautions ruin my vacation?”
“Will the additional stresses of travelling ruin any chance of getting that much needed R&R?”
“How could I possibly avoid other eager tourists and crowds of people everywhere?”
“What about face mask tan lines?!”
If any of this sounds familiar, you are not alone. The good news is that renting your own private villa — especially during these unprecedented times — is the perfect way to enjoy a relaxing and unforgettable holiday, while minimizing any travel-related health risks.
Your Own Space and Lots of It
The most obvious advantage to renting your own luxury villa is that you and your group will have your own space. Unlike cruise ships, resorts, and hotels that are packed with travelers and tourists making it almost impossible to practice social distancing, having an entire home to yourself allows for a true sense of luxury while distancing from the bustling crowds.
Of course, the majority of our villas come equipped with a private pool. There will be no need to fight to reserve a lounge chair by a communal pool first thing in the morning, or worry about wearing a mask in public places. In fact, at your pool, even bathing suits are optional.
Not only is the space yours, but there is plenty of it. Even the largest hotel suite can’t compare to having an entire villa to yourself. Whether you are traveling with children, teenagers, couples or a bigger group, our larger villas have enough bedrooms for everyone to have their privacy and personal space, but also have lavish common spaces so you can all dine and hang out together.
Each property also generally comes with all the basic amenities you could possibly need to feel at home. From inflatable pool toys, private cinemas, game rooms, saunas, BOSE sound systems and WiFi, staying at a luxury villa provides everything for everyone in your travel group to feel conveniently comfortable under one roof.
Staff Dedicated to Your Every Need
You are not leaving isolation to cook and clean in a different house. Even if it is a gorgeous one. The good news is that many of our villas come fully staffed, where your every need will be catered to.
The staff usually consists of a personal chef who can prepare meals and snacks, a housekeeping team, a butler to look after your day-to-day needs and a villa manager that you can contact for any home-related inquiries. In a fully staffed villa, there will always be someone who will be readily available to you, with discretion and respect for your privacy when you do not wish to be disturbed. Don’t you want to lounge by the private infinity pool in a dreamy tropical setting and have your favorite beverage hand-delivered without having to move an inch?
Thoroughly Cleaned Homes
We understand that cleanliness is one of the main concerns that travelers have during these unprecedented times. The health and safety of guests and staff has, and always will be, a top priority for us. That is why in addition to the preparation and thorough cleaning that every home undergoes prior to your arrival, we are working closely with our partners on the ground to confirm additional sanitary measures for homes and staff to ensure you have a carefree stay.
Personalized Experiences Just For You
Keeping distanced, does not mean staying confined. If you are like most of our guests, having a rich itinerary of experiences planned out for you is just what the doctor ordered. One of the perks of booking a luxury villa with us is that you will also be assigned a personal concierge that will work with you and our partners on the ground to coordinate all the logistics of your arrival, your return home and everything in between. Your concierge will assist you with booking and organizing outings, activities, and anything else you need during your villa stay.
Your personal Concierge will make recommendations for the best restaurants to dine at, things to do and places to visit. We have been working closely with our partners to put together a large selection of private activities, tours and excursions so you can experience all that your destination has to offer, while minimizing any risks to your health and safety. We also make sure to work with only the most trusted and reliable suppliers so you can be sure that you are getting the best.
Is Renting a Luxury Villa Safe?

If you are going to travel, or are at least thinking about it, then renting your own luxury villa is a great way to enjoy your holiday and eliminate a lot of risks and challenges that you may otherwise face.
