5 Reasons to Stay in a Villa This Holiday Season

Thinking about spending the holidays in a different home this year? Take a look at the top 5 reasons people choose to create new holiday traditions at our villas.

Now is the perfect time to start planning your winter getaway, because top villas are still available to book (though not for long – book soon to claim your first-choice!). While it may be tempting to uphold tradition by celebrating the holidays in the same place every year, spending the holiday season in a new locale can be a refreshing change that brings your family closer than ever. We’ve rounded up the top reasons why our travelers choose to spend their holidays in villa rentals around the world.

1. There’s room for all of your loved ones  
Whether you choose to spend the holidays with your immediate family, close friends, or the entire extended clan, you can include everyone in a shared villa rental. Our family homes range from 3-bedroom villas to 10-bedroom estates and include a kitchen, spacious living areas, a private pool, and outdoor terraces and patios. Everyone can spread out comfortably, but still retreat to their own space when they need some alone time (or privacy for wrapping presents!). 

2. Old traditions + new settings = unforgettable memories 
If you’re wary about missing out on beloved traditions like decorating the Christmas tree, fear no more: our concierge team can arrange that for you! We can set up a Christmas tree (lights and ornaments included) in your new home-away-from-home so the kids can still wake up to presents under the tree on Christmas morning, but then head to the beach or the ski slopes in the afternoon. Spend New Year’s Eve with cocktails on your private balcony or ring in the New Year with a poolside BBQ. It will be a holiday season your friends and family will never forget.

3. Chef-prepared meals and full staff
Our concierge team can arrange for a private chef to prepare you a special holiday menu with a mix of your family’s favorites and local specialties. Some rentals (including most Jamaica villas) also come with a full staff consisting of a chef, butler, housekeeper, and laundress. Enjoy all of the perks of holiday feasting with none of the cooking and cleaning.


4.    Quality family bonding time
When you don’t have to worry about housework, cooking, or driving from one relative’s house to another, you can spend the holidays actually enjoying the company of your loved ones. Families in Caribbean and Mexico villas tend to enjoy boat rides or snorkeling trips, while those in ski and snow villas take private snowmobiling tours or go on dog sledding adventures.

5. New experiences make for lifelong souvenirs
When you experience new adventures with your loved ones, the memories themselves become priceless souvenirs. But if you’re looking for something more tangible, our concierge team can arrange for a professional photographer to take family photos during your villa stay. You’ll come home with a lifelong reminder of your special holiday season in paradise.
