The Essentials: 5 Things to Look for in a Luxury Vacation Rental

With a predicted annual growth rate of 7.4 % for revenue earned, it is clear that luxury vacation rentals are slowly knocking other forms of holiday lodging out of the ballpark. This is due to a number of things including value, privacy and the availability of amenities and comforts you would have access to at the best hotels!

If you’re someone who is due to go on vacation and are trying to decide on a luxury vacation rental to opt for, there are a few things you should keep in mind.

5 Things to Look for in a Luxury Vacation Rental


When it comes to luxury vacation rentals – given the size of the market, not all those offering the option might deliver on quite what they promise. To make sure that the luxury vacation rental you opt for is worth what you spend, here are a few things you want to look for.

The Right Management

When it comes to a luxury vacation rental, it is the management that really sets the standards for the place apart from the location itself. The first thing you want to be certain of when you’re looking to book a luxury vacation rental anywhere in the world is the right management.

A good managerial team will have no problems offering you complete information on costs, amenities and other particulars with regard to your potential holiday getaway. They will be responsive over the phone and via email and will also be extremely professional and easy to deal with.

If you get a sense that the management of the rental you are going for is not quite up to par, look into other options!


If you’re traveling during peak holiday season, most of the best luxury vacation rentals may be booked. It is important to look into availability of the place you have in mind well in advance, particularly if you’re travelling in peak season.

Connect with the places you think you and your family or group might be interested in staying and find out about availability and coinciding dates well in advance.


Different luxury rentals will offer you different rates. Further rates may vary depending on when in the season you book, the packages you opt for (if offered) and of course the duration of your stay. It is always helpful to be clear on exactly what your luxury vacation rental will cost you as prices are not standard.


Prices also vary according to the space provided, amenities offered and of course location! Just be clear on the financial aspect before you proceed to make that final booking.

Amenities, Comforts and Location

We all have different needs and requirements when it comes to helping ourselves unwind. Where some might be about pandering and service 24/7 others might be more into personal space, the freedom to do as they please and of course privacy.


Find out what the rental you are choosing offers by way of space, comforts, amenities and anything else you feel could influence your decision. Where the rental is located is also of significance. Feel free to pick at the management a little until you have all the information you need. Once you’re clear on what is offered, see if it suites your personal requirements and make a decision!

Security and Diligence

Last but certainly not least, you need to make sure that the place you are opting for is indeed what it promises to be and not some scam job off the internet! In order to do this, do your own background work on the location you are choosing to stay. Find out if you can find anyone who stayed there before. Ask your friends and relatives if they have visited. Feel free to Google the address as well or ask your travel agent if they are familiar with the place.

Though there are numerous reliable vacation rental options out there, there are a number of con artists too that you would want to steer clear of!
