Villa Vacationing: A Travel "Must Try"

Villa Vacationing: A Travel "Must Try"

Villa Vacationing - Villa Petrea, Italy

"A week at our Tuscan villa cost just $275 per person. Granted it was off-season, but that was an unbelievable price for such a great place!" Tom Cocchiaro, Portsmouth, NH

Back in 1979, Hideaways started out as a matchmaking service for those looking to rent a villa, and for those with a vacation home to rent. Some 35 years later, villa vacationing is still something we—and the savviest members of the Hideaways Aficionado Club—consider a travel “must” for the space, privacy, flexibility, personal style, cost-savings, and living-like-a-local experience you just can’t get in a hotel.

Wave House, BarbadosTake The Wave House in the Dominican Republic. This ideally located North Coast villa embodies beachfront living, with exquisite ocean views from its living room, dining room, and three bedrooms—each with an en-suite bath, which makes it perfect for three couples traveling together. Walk across your lush lawn to your own private pool with its waving coconut palms, and swim, surf, or sunbathe . . . all within sight of your villa. The Wave House is fully equipped with all the comforts of home, and then some—like air-conditioning, Wi-Fi, housekeeping, security, a full kitchen, and more. You can rent this villa with two other couples for just $125/night/couple in the high season (and the low season rate is even more affordable).

Beyond What You See on Our Site
Whether it's a cozy Paris pied-a-terre for two or a barefoot-casual beachfront home in St. Croix for you and your entire family (or group of friends), Hideaways Travel Services (800-843-4433) is here to match you with your perfect place. We also can arrange for transportation, tours, and hotel accommodations before and after your villa stay, so you can see more of your surroundings while on holiday. And, in some destinations (if you like), we'll make sure your villa is pre-stocked with all your must-have grocery essentials, from eggs to beer.

Island Time, St. CroixWe've partnered with some of the finest villa management companies in the world to bring you more vacation home choices than ever before in places like Italy, Paris, and St. Croix (translation: we have access to hundreds of villa rentals that are not on our website) to give you more exciting options and a stress-free rental experience.

"Our villa in the Turks & Caicos was even better than described and made for the perfect beach oasis. The moment we pulled into the winding driveway and saw the second-story wraparound porch nestled in the tropical landscaping, we knew Hideaways had picked the perfect location for our family and friends." Ellen McPartland, Sea Cliff, NY
