Luxury Retreats Releases its Top Villa Picks for the Christmas Holidays

MONTREAL  (  International travel reaches a fever pitch in late December, as families on school break seek out adventure and relaxation in destinations around the world, from mountain getaways for skiing to classic beach holidays that leave the cold behind.

Luxury Retreats, the world leader in full-service luxury villa rentals worldwide, has just released its list of the top villas for the holiday period. With a holiday collection ranging from intimate homes for small families to large estates built for multi-generational travel, their list encompasses elite vacation rentals suited to anyone and everyone wishing to get away over Christmas and New Year’s.

“Villa rentals are an extremely hot commodity over the holidays,” said Ben Tuff, Luxury Retreats’ Director of Sales and Marketing. “It’s our busiest time of year, and the top villas usually get booked up quickly, at least a few months in advance. In other words, this availability list will change soon.”

One of the top villa rentals still available for the holidays is Casa La Laguna, a six-bedroom beachfront estate located in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Casa La Laguna is fully-staffed with a personal chef and in-villa masseuse, and offers a private pool with Jacuzzi above the beach.

In Maui, four-bedroom Garuda Estate is an Asian-style home overlooking the Pacific Ocean. One of the most exclusive rentals still available in the Caribbean is Rum Punch, a beautiful beachfront villa with contemporary style.

“It’s difficult to describe the excitement that occurs around this time of year, as our guests start booking their Christmas and New Year’s vacations,” said Tuff. “It can get hectic, but we love seeing our top villas get snapped up and helping those guests plan dream trips.”
