Villas of Distinction Reviews

Villas of Distinction is a company who has been specializing in arranging luxury travel rental villas for over twenty years, promising their customers a quality product, excellent service, and great value.

According to their website, renting a vacation villa – even a luxury one with amenities like a pool, butler, maids, and a chef – is often much cheaper than renting rooms at a hotel of similar quality.

Since a hotel charges per room, per night, and you will require more rooms for larger parties, they ultimately end up being more expensive than a villa which has a per night rate and can have anywhere from 1 to 20 bedrooms, depending on your needs.

And since their company represents villas in over fifty different destinations, throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, France, Italy, Greece, Grenada, Tahiti, and the United States, there is no need to compromise your vacation plans.

Most rentals represented by Villas of Distinction require a minimum stay of 5 to 7 nights, though depending on the time of year you may be allowed to have shorter stays or required to have longer minimum stays.

Their villas can also be used for parties and events, like weddings, corporate get-togethers, family reunions, and more, as long as you have written consent from the company.

If you are interested in renting a villa, you will have to supply a 50% deposit within 3 days of making arrangements in order to finalize your reservation. The remaining 50% payment will be due 90 days prior to your arrival at the villa.

If something happens and you must cancel your trip, all cancellations received prior to the final 90 day window will result in a 35% cancellation fee deducted from your deposit. If you cancel your trip after the full amount has been paid, your entire deposit amount will be forfeited.

They take no responsibility
December 4, 2022
This company takes absolute no responsibility for things that go wrong in the destination of the villas. My family was robbed by villas staff and VOD made it seem as though it was our fault, besides that the are racist. Do yourself a favor and contact the property management directly.

Concierge are unreliable

I booked Villa through Villa of Distinction for Hawaii vacation. Yes. Villa was very accommodating and luxurious. Concierge ( Kendra Nasar) was another story! She kept us in the dark with no informations or feed backs. We requested her for two simple things.

On second day of our trip we reserved chef, who was suppose to come to our Villa to cook for us and didn’t happened! The day before our departure she was supposed to make reservation at nice restaurant and didn’t happen neither. My travel agent and I try calling her numerous times but no response.

At beginning I only had two contact with her once by phone which I had to call her and second by email. I strongly believe if we requested car service we would have been stranded at the airport.

I will use Villas of Distinction for future travel.

We recently rented a beautiful villa on St John. Everything went smooth. Villas of Distinction assigned a concierge to help with any kind of reservations before getting to the island (ie private chef, car rental, boat trips, etc.). They work with a local property management company who will meet you upon arrival and take you to the Villa.

With the high demand in post COVID travel, Villas of Distinction personnel are very busy. You might not get an instant answer..Be patient, I always got my answer and had a great trip.

Villas of Disfunction
September 13, 2018
Horrible customer service....agree with first review. They certainly took our money and proceeded to be “unavailable” anytime we had a question or needed help from the so called concierge. Steer clear. Most of these homes can be rented through local realtors.

Villas of Distinction. Worst Customer Service. DO NOT USE
August 7, 2014

Had a horrible experience. Zero follow up. Zero follow thru. Shabby homes. VERY expensive. Once they have your money, they don't care. Not once was I contacted to ask how my experience was. I took a lot of photos to be able to show my "luxury" vacation... but the joke was on me. I was never contacted to see how my experience was and i rented not one but two villas.

Unless you have confirmation that the villa you're considering has been personally inspected by yourself or a trusted advisor, do not use this firm.
