A collection of 400 luxury properties available for rent directly from their owners is offering commissionable bookings to travel agents.
My Private Villas offers rentals in over 40 countries, with key destinations including France, Italy, Spain, Greece, the Caribbean, Thailand and South Africa.
“The villa rental market is a jungle, due to the incredible number of villa rental agencies that have appeared on the Internet,” states company founder and CEO, Paolo Macchiaroli. “Online sellers are simply cutting and pasting information without having any contact with the owners. They add mark ups and offer the villa for a higher price than the standard rate. This has created huge confusion in the marketplace and is not fair playing ground for the owners or client.”
My Private Villas says properties are meticulously vetted before owners can join the club. The collection is described as an eclectic mix of modern, designer and historic houses including private islands, beachfront villas, wine estates, luxury chalets, city apartments and family heritage properties.
“Experience seekers are moving toward the rental market as our villas provide a 5 star service but you spend less than in a 5 star hotel. The experience becomes personal, as the villa becomes your home for your holiday”. Macchiaroli says.
The properties enrolled in the club portfolio are not just holiday villas. They can be rented for private weddings, corporate and team building events.
My Private Villas says travel professionals will be paid commission within 14 days of receipt of full payment. The collection is represented by Dallyce Macas at Eminence
