Your Guide to New York Villas

From the pulsating heart of Manhattan to the serene calm of the Hamptons, New York offers a wealth of travel experiences that you won’t find anywhere else. New York villas let you enjoy the best that this historic state has to offer in unparalleled style and luxury.

The history of New York villas dates back to the Gilded Age of the 19th century. Within New York City, families like the Astors, Vanderbilts, and Carnegies commissioned grand urban mansions. Beyond the city, country retreats in the Hamptons, Hudson Valley, and Long Island provided comfortable respites for both locals and visitors alike. As the 20th century progressed, advances in construction gave rise to luxury penthouses and waterfront mansions.

Today, New York villas stand out as some of the very best in the US, with styles and personalities that are as varied as the state itself.

Renting a luxury villa in New York is easy with Rental Escapes. First, find your travel dates and party size. From there, your Rental Escapes villa specialist will present you with the best available New York villas. After, your concierge customizes your trip, including transportation, excursions, show tickets, tours, boat charters, reservations, chef service, and more.
