This week I sent a proposal to lovely new clients for their family group of six adults and four kids to share a private home in Orlando for their vacation to the parks and beach next summer. Arranging to have everyone in your traveling party stay together at a private home or villa has SO many advantage and is often a superior value over booking multiple hotel rooms. Also, this past summer wonderful clients traveling as a multi-generational family group of 10 journeyed through Costa Rica, and we booked the gorgeous, private Villa Palacio you see pictured above, at The Springs Resort and Spa at Arenal. They truly had the best of both worlds - all the awesome resort amenities plus a privatized experience. The next time you travel in a group, let's see if a private villa is right for you too!

For celebrating life’s greatest moments, book a (better than) home away from home with dedicated service, decadent seclusion, and so much more. Whether you’re commemorating a milestone, hosting a family reunion, or just want to kick up your heels and make some noise, a villa rental takes celebrations to the next – and unforgettable – level.
Virtuoso’s global portfolio includes a plethora of hotels and resorts with on-site villas, along with partners that focus solely on home and villa rentals. Bonus: Virtuoso-approved properties come with value-added perks – think exclusive amenities such as stocked pantries and bars, and complimentary spa treatments. Villas may be remote or resort based, studios or 40-plus bedrooms, pieds-à- terre or palazzi. Why rent one for your next big event? Let us count the reasons.
1. Bring the Generations Together
What more natural way to unite multigenerational families than to house them all under one commodious roof? Villa rentals are especially child friendly: They offer many bedrooms, ample space to run around and play, and a hiatus for parents worrying about how their kids’ noise might affect others.
2. Seek Maximum Privacy
Villas may be mansions, castles, bungalows, or penthouses. Seekers of seclusion, whether they’re newlywed couples or active families cite rural areas in Italy, Spain, France, Greece, and Jackson Hole as popular get-away-from-it-all locales.
3. Get the Best of Both Worlds
For travelers envisioning an exclusive celebration with all the amenities of a resort, being on resort grounds doesn’t mean villa residents will feel crowded.
4. Let the Butler Do It.
Rather than leaving guests on their own, Virtuoso-approved villas often come with service staff, such as chefs, butlers, and concierges, to arrange special celebratory dinners at home or adventures away from it, ranging from safaris to heli-skiing.
