Five-Star Villa Vacations™: Where Luxury Vacation Homes Meet 5-Star Service
What is a Five-Star Villa Vacation™?
At Private Trade Winds, we pride ourselves on being the villa vacation experts. As travel lovers ourselves, we have always been passionate about vacationing in villas and their cousins – chateaus, estates, urban condos, and all manner of high-end private vacation residences.
There is much to enjoy about villa vacations. The privacy. The feeling of being home even when we are travelling. The space. The extra bedrooms (especially when we travel with our families – our kids are excited to get their own bedrooms, and the adults appreciate their own room as well). The closer connection to the local people and culture. The joy of discovery that comes with staying in, and exploring, the uniqueness of a villa, as opposed to the cookie-cutter sameness of hotels.
But historically, villa vacations have lacked the service and the amenities of five-star hotels. The concierge services. Housekeeping. Room service. The 24/7 availability of someone who knows your needs, and your name. Plush robes and gourmet coffee. The list goes on.
We created Five-Star Villa Vacations™ to bring together the best of both worlds. You get the privacy, space and comfort of a villa, along with the service and amenities you expect from a Four Seasons or a Ritz Carlton hotel.

The “Cherry on Top”: Travel agents call them “special inclusions” – we call it the cherry on top because it's an extra something that adds a special taste to an already special-tasting experience. It might be a $500 credit to spend at the resort. At our classic European villas, it might be 15 hours of guided tours and hosted dinners by a local host. Or it might be a couple of rounds of golf or show tickets. It all depends on the destination and your interests.
