Five Dream Vacation Rentals

We all dream of going on holiday in an exclusive and private location, sometimes we see pictures and wonder where these places are and if they really exist, well Luxury Retreats has a ton of vacation rentals to choose from, here are five beautiful places:

villa marina

Villa Mariana: Costa Rica

Located in the heart of the jungle this huge two-story steel and glass house sits on four very private acres of land near the town of Quepos. The house has many windows that make the property feel as if it is one with the surrounding forest. The property also sports an infinity pool with outdoor deck, lounge area, waterfall feature and even a kitchen counter that slides open to serve as an indoor or outdoor bar. Despite the privacy of the property it is within short driving distance of the town and the beach.

Necker Island: Caribbean

If it’s privacy that you want then Necker Island is for you, because it is its own private seventy four acre island island surrounded by beautiful turquoise waters and white sand beaches for rest and relaxation. The island has fifteen bedrooms spread between the Great House and six Balinese style houses, three of which are grouped next to the beach. The houses can accommodate up to thirty guests and it is possible to rent the island for privacy or by the room during certain weeks in the year. There are many water sports to participate in such as snorkeling, kayaking and windsurfing. The Great House has a state of the art kitchen but it is best to let the island’s chef cook for you while you relax by the pool or in the crystal clear waters surrounding the island.

Heinz Julien Loft: Swiss Alps

A beautiful chalet created by designer Heinz Julen and sculpted from a combination of glass, steel, textured concrete and wood located in the picturesque Swiss Alps to create a totally unique design. Only a short distance from the Omnia Hotel ski lifts, which is convenient as complimentary VIP access is included in the stay. After a hard day skiing the slopes of the Alps you can relax in the warmth of the fireplace, sauna or Jacuzzi. You can also play concertos on the baby grand Steinway piano or sit at the large table suspending from the ceiling with magnificent views of the village. A chef and host will take care of you six days a week to give you more time to relax.

Villa Sapi: Lombok, Indonesia

Villa Sapi is a beautiful private house with all the comforts and service of a five star hotel, it consists of two different structures surrounded by decorative fishponds and gardens that wind down to a squeaky white sand beach. The villa also has a completely independent guest house that is uniquely isolated from the main guest house, so that guests can explore as if they were not guests at all. The property also has a swimming pool, tennis court and private chef.

Hercules Estate: Los Angeles, USA

With views of the famous Hollywood Hills, downtown LA and even Newport, the Hercules estate is a 6,000 square foot modern villa with angular architecture and a breathtaking waterfall feature. Enjoy a walk in the birch forest, a swim in the stunning infinity pool that overlooks the city of Angels or head inside to the cinema room for some of your favourite movies. All the attractions of Los Angeles are within driving distance such as Malibu, Santa Monica and downtown LA.
