Hand-picked holiday homes for the design conscious
Not sure if villa is a good fit for you? Even though room-service is such a wonderful treat, there are plenty of reasons why a villa should be considered, too. Besides privacy and having the pool all to yourself (do you really need anything else?) here are just a few reasons why you should consider renting a home for your holiday:
1. Lots of space
A villa is considerably bigger than a standard hotel room, with plenty of your own personal space, including en-suite bedrooms, living and dining rooms, as well as you own outdoor terrace. Villas range from 150 m2 to 600 m2. They average 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, living room, kitchen, formal dining area and spacious terrraces. That means parents and kids can spread-out into multiple rooms (and plenty of space to unpack everything, yay!)
2. Cost Effective
Renting a villa is an extremely cost effective way of taking a vacation either with your family or a group of friends. Villas are priced per property, not per person and are booked directly with the property owners. For a large family or group of friends, a private villa will work out significantly cheaper that a resort.
3. Complimentary extras
There are plenty of amenities that come as standard in most villas:
- Private pool
- Baby amenitites like cribs and high chairs
- Laundry room (some exceptions)
- Private parking
- BBQ grill
- Kid’s playground
- Fully equipped, modern kitchen
- Large private yards (some with garden)
Most private homes have Cable TV, free Wi-Fi, DVD players, iPod docks. There are many homes with gym, saunas, Playstations, pool tables...and it’s all for you to use whenever you want.
If you travel with lots of luggage it can be comfortable to park your car right in front of a villa, no long corridors or elevators. You have separate bedrooms for the kids, and there is no need to make a queue for the bathrooms. Full-size kitchen allows you to cook up a meal whenever you like and your own laundry facility in the villa which means you don't have to make a trip to the laundromat.
When you stay in a villa there are no middlemen. Most owners live nearby and will assist you with any help or guidance you may need.
