Vacation rentals and holiday rentals (just check the countles travel directories) are a great alternative for those who wish to have more privacy and space to maneuver, something that hotels don't really have. Staying in a hotel involves tipping porters and valets; there is the added expense of dining out daily.

From the initial dream of a vacation in a luxury villa, through the entire trip, every step should be stress free and enjoyable.
