2014 was a wonderful year for luxury villa rentals and Rental Escapes. We planned countless vacations filled with sun, surf, snow, and total luxury. Choosing to rent a private villa instead of a hotel room totally transforms the vacation experience. Our collection features the finest villas and estates available around the word, and these 5 were the most popular this year. We look forward to planning your luxury getaways in 2015!
