Villas

Miami Beach, south Beach is a city of excitement and must see adventures that you can only experience in a few cities in this world. Wrapped that in perfect paradise weather all year around, sprinkle on some soul-try rhythms from the Cuban and South American, and Brazilian cultures and serve it the sophistication of world cities like NYC, Paris & Moscow. This will create a dish that you will never forget its pallet.

Seasons vary depending on the destination. In the Caribbean, High Season begins in mid-December and lasts until mid-April. The lower rates of Low Season take effect until mid-December. Your villa consultant will reconfirm this upon your inquiry, as there are a few exceptions. In Europe the opposite is true, with July and August being High Season.

Not necessarily. Many villas can be rented at a reduced rate when you do not use all the bedrooms. This is noted on the villa rate listings on this site. Varies per owner but a small adjustment or better offer will be accepted by the owner if a very small group as compared to a large group. Sometimes owners will negotiate better deals if rooms are closed off but typically not during high and peak season.

Absolutely not. You are renting the entire villa and you never have to share a villa with anyone other than those in your party.

It's an exceptional idea and a great value. Villas are private and spacious, and most come with private pools and hot tubs or Jacuzzis. Many of our listings are incredibly romantic and offer packages and reduced rates for 2 guests or honeymooners.

As you explore the villas we represent, you'll see that many villas are often much less than prices at hotels of the same quality standard. When you factor in all the benefits and amenities of a private villa, you'll quickly realize that villas offer a superb value. For example, three rooms at a high-end hotel may run you $690/night per room, while one 3-bedroom luxury villa with the same amenities and services could cost you $990/night. That's a savings of $1,080/night!

There is no one correct answer, as each place is different and unique. Villas of Distinction specialists can match your preferences to the perfect getaway. More importantly, we'll make sure your rental villa will meet or exceed your expectations and requirements.

This and other considerations vary from destination to destination. If you are looking for cook service, Barbados, Jamaica, and St. Lucia have homes staffed with cooks. Cook service can be arranged at additional cost at most of our other destinations. Maid service is included in most destinations but please confirm frequency of this service with your Villa Specialist.

Prices

Our rates are for the entire villa; however, parties, weddings or large gatherings require written permission. Some larger villas offer lower rates for use of fewer bedrooms within the house. Villas may not be occupied by more guests than specified in the rental agreement.

Normally a 3 to 7 night stay is required. Many villas do accept shorter stays, especially if it is close to your departure date. During the Christmas and New Year's Holiday period, most villas require a minimum of 10-14 nights.

All bookings require a 13% Miami Beach Resort tax to be collected & check out cleaning fee which range from $75 per bedroom X Number of bedrooms for check out cleaning.

Reservations

This is absolute “No Tolerance” for parties or event without our consent and approval of the owner. Any event opt parties of groups of larger than 15 people can result in immediate confiscation of your deposit. Please refer to our policy page.

Each property is allowed 2 people per bed. So if a property has 5 bedrooms and 5 king beds then you would be allowed 10 people. If you have 12 people for a 5 bedroom house we can arrange that but need to rent roll away beds to accommodate the extra guest as we do not want your guest to be sleeping throughout the furniture of the thaw house. These homes are furnished with very expensive furnishing that are not meant to be slept on. Unlike bed sheets that can be sent to be professionally cleaned fairly inexpensive. A couch can cost up to $1,000to clean when dealing with some of the world most expensive leather. Things can happen and for all parties involved we would to do everything possible to avoid this use of the furnishing. If a property has 2 beds in a room then a total of 4 people can sleep in that room and the total it sleeps is 2 more total. So if a 5 bedroom with 6 beds property then it could sleep 12 and if requested and approved by the owner a requested 2 more total guest could stay. These are approved at the sole discretion of the owner.

If you will like one of the bed done between cleaning our housekeepers can do that as well. But for larger properties where it would it we would need to do 3 bedrooms or more.

A vacation rental is the renting out of a furnished apartment, house, or professionally managed resort-condominium complex on a temporary basis to tourists as an alternative to a hotel. The term vacation rental is mainly used in the US.

Generally, in most of our destinations, you can arrive on any day of the week, as long as the villa is available. In Europe, in particular France and Italy, the normal arrival and departure day is Saturday.

For most places the following standard practices apply: A 50% deposit is required within 3 days to hold a reservation. Reservations are not considered firm until the deposit and rental agreement form are received. A confirmation letter is sent to you upon receipt of the deposit. The balance of your payment is due 70 days prior to your arrival date. In general, for written cancellations received outside the 70 days of arrival - 35% of gross rental price is retained. For cancellations inside the 70 days of arrival 50% of the total reservation is forfeited. If less than 45 days then 100% of the reservation total will be forfeited. Please note that ALL holiday bookings are 100% non-refundable. Also, please be sure to check on deposit and cancellation policies for your specific villa as payment and cancellation terms may vary. Please check at point of booking. Trip insurance is strongly recommended.

There are a few homes that have restrictions. Our Villa Specialists can help you choose the perfect villa for your family, as certain homes are more child-friendly than others in terms of safety and bedding considerations.

Even the best-planned trips can get blown off course by unexpected circumstances like a broken leg, 24-hour flu, an unexpected hurricane, or worse. Trip insurance provides coverage for everyone staying at the villa for one affordable plan cost. Please see our Trip Insurance section for further details.
