Marriott International has launched home and villa rentals in the US, Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America, all participating in Marriott Bonvoy

Marriott International has launched Homes & Villas by Marriott International, a home rental initiative offering 2,000 luxury and luxury homes in more than 100 destinations across the United States, Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America.

Starting next week when the show launches, we’re expecting members Marriott Bonvoy can earn and redeem points at these highly organized homesproviding more accommodation options to suit a range of travel needs around the world.

“The launch of homes and villas from Marriott International reflects our continued commitment to innovation as consumers’ travel needs evolve,” said Stephanie Lenarts, global commercial director for Marriott International. “What started as a pilot a year ago is now a world-class offering, providing our guests the space and amenities of a home backed by a trusted travel company, and the best loyalty benefits.”

Marriott’s expansion in home rentals was developed as a result of the 2018 trial under the Tribute Portfolio Homes brand extension. Among the guests who booked a home during the experience, which was only available in select European cities, nearly 90 percent were Marriott Bonvoy members and more than three-quarters were traveling for leisure with family and friends. During the test flight, the average guest stay was more than three times the normal hotel stay. These ideas, along with Marriott’s commitment to providing travelers with unique and different accommodations, including spacious homes with one or more bedrooms, large kitchens, in-unit laundry, and more, have played an important role in guiding the choice of luxury and premium homes. and as the primary leisure markets available at launch that complement the core offerings of the Marriott Hotel Group.

Luxurious and special offers

The introduction of Homes & Villas by Marriott International adds nearly 40 new entertainment destinations for Marriott Bonvoy members to earn and redeem points, including Sorrento, Italy and the Amalfi Coast, Italy; North Lake Tahoe, California; and Saint Barts in the Caribbean. This selection of homes aims to connect travelers to thousands of rental properties around the world and pave the way for the most important moments of guest travel – a home-cooked dinner with the extended family, garden games in the backyard, or a memorable birthday celebration with family and friends. Homes include:

Four-Bedroom Cottage on Six Acres Private California Winery.

Marriott launches Homes and Villas from Marriott International with select property management companies already managing these homes. Trusted property management companies provide guests with a professionally clean home with 24/7 support, high-speed Wi-Fi, luxury linens and amenities, and on-demand family-friendly amenities. At launch, selected property management companies by Marriott include TurnKey Vacation Rentals, LaCure, Loyd & Townsend Rose, Veeve and London Residents Club as well as existing hotel owners and operators such as Mainsail Lodging and Reserva Conchal.
