Summer is underway and the travel planning experts at Villas of Distinction®, the world’s premier villa rental company as part of World Travel Holdings, is sharing three ways consumers can an experience a bucket-list vacation while receiving the best vacation value by staying in a villa.

Many consumers see luxurious villas featured on television shows, in magazines as celebrity vacations, or may even have a high-end villa vacation on their bucket list. While these vacations appear to be expensive, what many consumers do not realize is that a luxury villa vacation is actually a great value when all of the amenities associated with it are included.

People wanting to travel like the rich and famous will want to take note of these three ways a luxurious villa stay can become a reality:

1. Vacation with friends, couples or get the entire family together for a reunion, sharing the cost is a popular way to lower the per-night cost.

2. Use an experienced villa specialist to book. Don’t book a dream villa vacation online — it may not end up being the best deal, or fit the description or photos that were advertised online. To avoid vacation surprises, use a villa specialist who will listen to a client’s vacation desires and find a villa to fit their individual needs. To add even more value, Villas of Distinction’s villa specialists know the entire destination, not just the villa so they are creating a vacation experience, not just booking a room.

3. Don’t be afraid to share a budget and consider the value. Sharing a budget upfront allows the villa specialist to present villa options in a specific price range. In addition, vacationers can stock the villa with food and beverage at local food market prices instead of being charged surcharged resort prices making the savings enormous. Customers should find out what amenities the villa offers and whether or not the price of the villa includes any staff. Some villas even include a butler, chef and maid service in the cost of the villa.

Here is the per night breakdown for two villas that will provide a luxurious villa experience that is in reach:

Whitegates in Barbados is a four-bedroom beachfront villa with a wonderful, cliff-side location at The Garden on the island’s Gulf Coast. It sleeps eight and includes staff - a housekeeper, a cook and laundry service.

A luxury villa offers the comfort and privacy of a home, with all of the resort amenities such as a private pool, game/entertainment rooms and often times activities such as basketball and tennis courts, and sometimes private beaches without all of the people.

In addition, every client who books with Villas of Distinction receives a personal concierge to customize the entire vacation from start to finish and arrange amenities from private chef services, cooking lessons, restaurant reservations and pre-stocked groceries to golf tee times, customized excursions, and even personalized events like hiring a Mariachi band or fireworks on the beach.
