There’s no denying that location plays a pivotal role in the making of a vacation home. Unrivalled natural beauty can only be enhanced by thoughtful design – something that our vacation home experts take into account when they trawl the globe to find our newest vacation rentals. While walls do have to go up (for practical reasons!) there are clever ways to merge the outside world with man made architecture.
Home to over 400 miles of canal, there’s no surprise that Cape Coral is on this list! Having waterfront access is a feature that the majority of our luxury villas have in this area – but no other homes simply “do it” as well as Cape Coral 5. This stunning home allows guests to embrace the unspoilt calm of the canals, as well as captain their own boat along the waterways, all within the bounds of their own private vacation rental.
The sunsets are truly remarkable here, with patio doors being flung open most evenings to welcome in the endless view and cooler night air. This doesn’t distract from the villa’s magazine-quality interiors, however, as careful planning has been put into every aspect of the home’s design, with 4 individually styled bedrooms and large, spacious rooms to relax in.
Reunion Resort remains one of the most exclusive resorts in Orlando, Florida. While many vacation rental communities can feel over developed, Reunion Resort still retains a large amount of green scenery thanks to the number of golf courses and well preserved conservation areas. Among these homes one of the best views has to be at Reunion Resort 8, a unique 5 bedroom home nestled on the edge of a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course.
It’s easy to justify having a pool day at this villa, even with the surrounding excitement of Orlando. The ever bubbling spa and custom designed pool area are well deserved treat from a long day at at the parks with the view being a welcome accompaniment.
The spacious interiors feel well lit, with care being taken to ensure there are enough spaces to relax for each member of a large party, a feature that can feel overlooked in cramped vacation homes. If you’re looking for some alone time, the upper balcony offers an ideal spot to sit and watch the world go by.
Situated in the Virgin Islands, Tortola is a small slice of exotic paradise. While Richard Branson may be relaxing on Necker Island a mere 30km away, we would rather be sipping a cocktail on the patio of Tortola 8 and taking in the fantastic views. This 5 bedroom Caribbean vacation rental is a welcome retreat for those looking to get away from it all, with some of the best views in the world.
Tortola 8 has a scale of “epic” that is rarely found in vacation homes. Organic elements mingle with contemporary features throughout the home – heavy, wooden four poster beds sit in bedrooms equipped with all the mod-cons, while the large infinity pool seems to blend into the ocean beneath. Relaxed elegance is the only way to describe the home itself – it simply is relaxed and elegant!
Direct access to the gardens is a given here and we’re spoilt for it. Memorable dinners can be had looking across the ocean and islands beyond, while taking in the scents of the surrounding flora and fauna. If you’re looking for paradise, Tortola 8 is sure to tick all the boxes.
