Homes & Villas by Marriott International, the Marriott Bonvoy travel program’s collection of premium and luxury whole-home rentals around the world, announced its launch in Australia and New Zealand last week.
The expansion into these new markets adds over 350 premium and luxury homes to the platform in prime leisure destinations, including Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Orange in Australia, and Auckland and Queenstown in New Zealand.
These homes aim to provide members of Marriott’s travel program, Marriott Bonvoy, with more options when they travel to complement Marriott International’s existing offering of 29 hotels across 13 different brands in Australia and New Zealand.
Several of the homes feature balconies, pools, gourmet kitchens and large entertaining areas that make them the ideal place for gatherings.
Homes & Villas by Marriott International was launched in May 2019.
“Private home rental offerings are tremendously popular right now as travellers look for ways to re-connect with loved ones, as well as to continue to balance remote work, school, and leisure,” Jennifer Hsieh, VP, Homes & Villas by Marriott International, said.
“We are thrilled to be bringing Homes & Villas by Marriott International to Australia and New Zealand, providing our guests with a curated selection of the best premium and luxury homes in the market.
“These homes provide the space and amenities expected from a luxury experience and the backing of a trusted travel company.”
Marriott International works with selected professional property management groups to craft specific experiences – from beachside villas to city penthouses.
Homes & Villas also offers pet-friendly accommodation enabling guests to enjoy a getaway with their furry companion by their side.
Every stay is managed by a specialist property manager and offers 24/7 support for any customer assistance needed during the getaway.
From countryside houses in vineyards, sprawling houses and lakeview villas, as well as buzzing city apartments and penthouses, guests have access to a range of different options in the collection of private homes in Australia and New Zealand.
