Private rentals for you and yours to call your own
Laura Ingalls Wilder once wrote, “Home is the nicest word there is.” There is truly no better feeling than the comfort of home — but if you’ve been spending an inordinate amount of time in yours lately, you may be open-minded as to where you’d like to celebrate this holiday season.
We love showing you the world through the lens of incredible destinations, experiences, and the very best luxury hotels and resorts. But did you know that we also have access to the world’s finest private home rentals — many of which are unlisted? From Frank Sinatra’s mid-century estate in Palm Springs to a small mountain town with a secret location (yes, really!), below are four unique experiences selected to spark inspiration for safe and spectacular travel possibilities when you are ready.
Make no mistake — it’s still a great idea to make your famous homemade pumpkin pie. We’re simply suggesting that your first bite will taste even sweeter after you’ve been in touch to discover your perfect holiday home.
IF YOU WANT YOUR HOLIDAYS TO BE COOL & COASTAL
ESCAPE TO AN ARCHITECT’S DREAM HOME IN MARTHA’S VINEYARD
This architecturally stunning waterfront abode perfectly captures the laid-back elegance of Martha’s Vineyard. Set atop a ridge on twenty-two private acres, here you’ll enjoy panoramic views of Vineyard Sound and the Elizabeth Islands. Unique in both style and layout, this single-story contemporary residence has six bedrooms (including the detached guest house), and would be the perfect holiday sanctuary for a family or small reunion with friends.
Each bedroom features floor-to-ceiling windows with striking waterfront views, so you are sure to bypass any holiday rivalry over who gets the best room. Bundle up to explore scenic walking trails, and cozy up with a mug of hot cocoa next to the indoor fireplace or outdoor fire pit upon your return. You’ll enjoy complete privacy and yet all the amenities of a 5-star hotel — including concierge services just a phone call away.
IF YOU WANT YOUR HOLIDAYS TO BE LYRICAL & LEGENDARY
ESCAPE TO FRANK SINATRA’S ESTATE IN PALM SPRINGS
Frank Sinatra may have risen to fame singing about New York and Chicago, but if home is where the heart is, the California desert seemed to have stolen his. His primary residence between 1948 and 1957, we are starstruck just imagining playing Sinatra’s own holiday classics in what was his personal recording studio.
Enjoy an afternoon swim in the infamous piano-shaped pool and pour yourself a drink in the living room wet bar thereafter. Rumor has it that Frank installed a flagpole between two palm trees and would raise a flag to let his guests know it was cocktail hour. In similar fashion, you can raise your glass to toast to Ol’ Blue Eyes and a holiday season you will never forget.
IF YOU WANT YOUR HOLIDAYS TO BE SPENT OUT ON “THE TOWN”
ESCAPE TO A PRIVATE COLORADO TOWN (ADDRESS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST)
It’s likely been awhile since you’ve really been out on the town, but if you choose to call this undisclosed reproduction of a full-scale 19th Century settlement yours for awhile, we guarantee your experience will be special in every way. Dubbed “The Town” to maintain its privacy, this relic of the West is home to world’s largest collection of western artifacts and is situated on 4,500 pristine acres of mountains, plains, rivers, and lakes.
Don’t write this off as a small town with nothing to do or think you’ll be roughin’ it. Instead you’ll be treated to five-star dining and accommodations, a full service spa with a champagne bar and million dollar views, entertainment, and all the activities a cowboy or cowgirl could ever desire. We hate to be withholding, but you’ll have to get in touch if you’re interested in learning more.
Its location in the middle of the Pacific implies that Hawaii does isolation very well.

Hawaii has it all… perfect weather, stunning landscapes, incredible food and culture, friendly locals, endless activities and places to explore. Consider this inspiration for future travel if you’re not considering air travel at this time — but if you are interested, please know that we are here to guide you every step of the way and ensure you enjoy paradise with peace of mind and plenty of perks.
