Take your Villa or Apartment Renting To The Next Level With Virtuoso

Taking the whole family on a beach vacation this summer? Want an apartment in the big city for a long weekend? Why, you’ll need to book an Airbnb rental for that, right? Sure, if you want to run the risk of being secretly filmed by your host, as one couple recently discovered was happening to them at a Longboat Key, Fla., rental. Or if you’re OK with the possibility that your host might cancel your booking at the last minute for no reason or because of your race, as occurred in February with a Big Bear, Calif., rental. Or if you don’t mind that the place you’re renting might not have the proper insurance, safety measures or even be legally available for short-term rentals.

Or, you could utilize the vast resources of the Virtuoso network and stay at a place that has been properly vetted, offers services such as housekeeping and lets you enjoy your experience instead of worrying about what’s actually waiting for you when you arrive and potentially dealing with issues that turn your vacation into a big hassle.

Virtuoso-preferred partners offer a vast array of accommodations around the world. In addition to many Virtuoso-preferred hotels having private villas and apartments, there are several companies who specialize in just this sort of thing. 

Villas of Distinction features properties all throughout the Caribbean, in several European countries, Hawaii, Colorado, Florida and so much more. You can filter the number of bedrooms you need, the type of experience and level of service you’re looking for, and special features such as beachfront or fully staffed until you’ve found the villa that is perfect for you and your crew.

Abercrombie & Kent doesn’t just do great tours, from magnificently crafted group and family journeys to completely customized private itineraries, the company also has alpine chalets and luxury villas from Andalucia to Umbria at the best addresses in Europe. So after you return from a day of breathtaking touring with your driver and guide, you can sit down to a gourmet meal prepared by a private chef. Sure beats rummaging through the fridge at an Airbnb.

Say you’re off to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, New York, Paris, London or Rome for a long weekend, a week or a longer stay. Instead of booking a hotel, you’d rather live like a local and have a larger living space with all the comforts of home. Onefinestay has a whole roster of apartments, condos and lofts in those cities, plus an ever-expanding list of global destinations. Onefinestay visits each home before renting it and has a guest services team ready 24/7 to assist guests. Good luck getting a hold of your Airbnb host at 3 a.m.

Ski season is upon us, and you might need help finding a place that checks off all the items on your wish list. Ski-in/ski-out, hot tub, whatever the request, Alpine Adventures has the rental for you, from Vail to Verbier, Crested Butte to Courchevel and just about anywhere else skis and snowboards tear lines.

There are so many more choices, from the villa collections of Virtuoso-preferred wholesalers Travel Impressions and Classic Vacations to the beautiful villas along Lake Como available through the all-everything Italy specialists at IC Bellagio. Now aren’t you glad you don’t have to worry about an Airbnb host dropping by without notice during your romantic dinner?

VERBIER, SWITZERLAND

Verbier, SwitzerlandVerbier, Switzerland

Verbier, “the resort that smiles at the sun”, and the second largest resort in the Swiss Alps, is a delightful French speaking village located on a sunny plateau, on the grand circuit of the “4 Valleys” ski area.

Situated between the Matterhorn and Mont-Blanc at a height of 5,000 feet, Verbier has one of the largest skiing areas in Europe. Your lift ticket is honored at the 100 plus lifts and cable cars which service over 250 miles of ski runs. This vast ski area is topped by Jumbo, the Verbier-Mont-Fort cable car, with a 150 person capacity. Ascending to almost 11,000 feet, this telepherique opens up some of the steepest mechanically accessible ski runs in the Alps. Moderate to easy runs are plentiful and the “4 Valleys” 200 instructors are there to help you develop your skills.

Verbier’s ultramodern sports center enables you to play tennis, squash, ice-hockey, curling, skating and swimming. Verbier has some 60 restaurants plus 9 nightclubs and pubs, and though sporty and active, appreciates an equally calm and relaxing atmosphere. For nonskiers, nearby cities such as Montreux and Lausanne are easily accessible by public transportation.
