Spend your vacation in ultimate comfort and style. Treat yourself to a glorious getaway at one of these ten luxurious properties.


1. Atlantic Serenity

This home was by far one of the nicest places my family and I have rented. Lovely decorations and comfortable furniture. The views are amazing, and the booking process is simple and convenient with Akers Ellis. Excellent customer service too!

2. Bonjour Leisure

We had a fantastic holiday. The house was spacious, clean and very well appointed with everything a family could need. The pool house was perfect for BBQs, with plenty of seating and a separate kitchen. We enjoyed visiting the nearby villages of Valbonne and Biot and walks along river as well as exploring the bigger Riviera towns of Antibes, Nice and Monaco. We had such a fantastic time we have already booked again for 2016 and would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

3. Modern Retreat

If I could rate this house 10 STARS I would! It was the perfect house for my bachelorette weekend! I was initially very impressed with the pictures online but it ended up being even better in person. Brian was so quick to respond to all of our questions and was such a pleasure to work with. He even allowed us to check in early on our arrival day so some of the girls could decorate and have things looking nice by the time I showed up. If I even need a place to stay in Austin for a large group of people I'll for sure be rebooking this property. Thanks Brian for everything!

4. Smoky Mountain Blackberry Farm Stay

My stay at Elkmont was wonderful. The house and property are in exceptional condition, very private and beautifully decorated. In particular, the beds are luxuriously appointed and very comfortable. A special feature is the enormous porch swing on the screened in porch. Of course, you get to enjoy the wonderful hospitality of Blackberry Farm too.

5. Celebrity Mansion

The house is just outstanding—beautiful yet livable. So much to do and lots of private space when needed. We had a family reunion 1/2 adults and 1/2 children—the kids never complained once of being bored. Our family throughly enjoyed our time at this special house—memories that will live on or a lifetime. Don't think it can ever be topped.

6. Breathtaking Beauty

My husband and I rented Rick Benson's stunning home for our intimate wedding weekend (8 adults and 8 children staying in the home). We were beyond pleased with the size and cleanliness of the accommodations, and loved the elegant yet child-friendly decor. The Sonos sound system was wonderful, the grounds were gorgeous with fresh seasonal plantings, and the bedrooms were bright, beautiful, and comfortable. We had everything we needed and more!

7. Townhouse Elegance

Julia went above and beyond the expectation to ensure we felt comfortable and at home in our space. We were traveling with two small children (10 months and 2 years) and were provided appropriate sleeping arrangements for both of them. Laundry was provided any time we needed it done. Julia makes herself available for any question you could have and is very attentive to detail. The space itself was beautiful with a ton of natural light and high ceilings. When we find ourselves back in NYC, we will be sure to stay here again!

8. Oceanfront View

We had two families staying in the house the end of July. Between the main house and the guest house, we had plenty of room for all of us. Given the constant exposure to sea elements, the house is in excellent condition. Our favorite feature was the back deck overlooking the ocean. You get to enjoy stunning views throughout the day. We saw sea turtles every morning in the tide pool area by the house. You will find restaurants and other resorts a short drive, as well as Hapuna beach, which is a gorgeous white sandy beach. We found the house manager and the owner to be very responsive and accommodating. If you are going to the Big Island, and you want to be on the water, I would highly recommend this house.

9. Private Paradise

The property is in excellent condition and Severine could not have been more accommodating. When we arrived, the kitchen was sufficiently stocked with breakfast food and bottled water meaning we didn't have to run to the store immediately. Our infinity pool and large deck was the perfect place to relax and unwind. Then in the evening a short 5 minute drive to the beach gave us multiple choices of restaurants from fine French and Italian cuisine to your basic burger by the water. It was truly a remarkable vacation and thank you, Severine, for your hospitality.

10. Enchanting Villa

Villa Terra Nova was beyond expectations. It was the perfect home for our family who traveled from San Diego and Texas for my son's wedding. Every room was appointed beautifully with everything you need for an out of town stay and the beds were extremely comfortable with high end linens. The master bedroom Shower was OUTSTANDING! The kitchen and pantry were well stocked with every glass, dish, serving and cooking pieces for a lot of people. The grounds were serene and peaceful. Janice was very gracious and informative at check in and throughout our stay. We enjoyed the privacy of the gates.
