WILMINGTON, MASS. – Villas of Distinction, the world’s premier luxury villa rental company as part of World Travel Holdings, is increasing its portfolio of domestic villas as a result of incredible demand. According to Ketchum Travel, a global communications consultancy, 80 percent of Americans say they are willing to pay more for privacy and distancing.

“As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we are seeing an increase in requests from our travel advisor partners whose customers want to travel and are asking their advisor for a private villa within the U.S.,” said Steve Lassman, vice president of villa product & agency relations for Villas of Distinction. “People who are not quite comfortable coming into contact with large groups of people will opt to take a staycation or a road trip, and stay in a private villa with family and friends who they know have been cautious. With our exclusive concierge service, a travel advisor can create a socially-distanced experience at the villa that will enhance the guest’s vacation.”

As a result, Villas of Distinction has added more than 140 villa properties in domestic destinations with more being added:

Beverly Hills, Malibu and Hollywood, California
Big Sky, Montana
Gloucester and Beverly, Massachusetts
Great Smokey Mountains, Tennessee
Hot Springs, Virginia
Marco Island, Florida
Portland, Maine (exciting new destination coming soon)
Stonington, Connecticut
Sea Islands, South Carolina
Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico
Many of Villas of Distinction’s properties have adopted the Villa Rental Management Association’s cleaning standard for COVID-19 and its “Peace of Mind” policy provides flexible travel policies.,51426187.html,51426179.html,51426165.html
