Homes & Villas by Marriott International, a project for individuals looking for their ideal residence, a home rental initiative offering 2,000 premium and luxury homes. No matter where they are in the world - United States, Europe, the Caribbean, or even Latin America - customers will be able to find a place because the project consists of homes located over 100 destinations with nearly 40 new fascinating destinations including Sorrento, Italy and the Amalfi Coast, Italy; North Lake Tahoe, California; and St. Barts in the Caribbean. In addition, Marriott Bonvoy members are able to redeem points at these highly-curated homes.
As a result of the 2018 pilot under the brand extension Tribute Portfolio Homes. Of the guests who booked a home during the pilot, which was only available in select European cities, nearly 90 percent were members of Marriott Bonvoy and over three-quarters were traveling for leisure with family and friends. During the pilot, the average guest stay was more than triple the typical hotel stay. A discovery was made that homes with one or more bedrooms, large kitchens, in-unit laundry and more, played an important role in guiding the selection of luxury and premium homes, as well as the key leisure markets available at launch that complement the core offerings of Marriott’s hotel portfolio. To conclude, there was a high demand, what started out as a pilot is now a global offering, providing guests with the space and amenities of a home backed by a trusted travel company.
The homes are styled differently depending on preference. Some of them include:
- A four-bedroom cottage on six private acres of California wine country.
- A stunning six bedroom villa in Sorrento, Italy with an infinity pool overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and a wood-fire pizza oven.
- An oceanfront villa in Anguilla with private beach and a personal butler and house staff.
- An 18th century Irish Castle that sleeps 17 and features a private lake for boating and fishing.
- A six-bedroom townhouse in London with a children’s playroom and climbing wall.
Each property comes with property management services which provide customers with professionally cleaned home with 24/7 support, high-speed Wi-Fi, premium linens and amenities, and family-friendly conveniences upon request. At launch, the property management companies selected by Marriott include TurnKey Vacation Rentals, LaCure, Loyd & Townsend Rose, Veeve, and Reserva Conchal. Over time, Marriott expects to introduce Home & Villas by Marriott International in additional markets as well as increase the number of homes offered in these launch destinations.
Starting next week, Marriott expects travelers can search and book homes on the Home & Villas by Marriott International site.
For Marriott Bonvoy members - points for every Homes & Villas by Marriott International stay may be redeemed.
