For the most part we were pleased

By: Bobbie

Reviewed on: 04 Feb 2015

Our Concierge, Judith & and her assistant in training, Jenna, were prompt in greeting us at the villa. Went over everything quickly; probably too quickly, as just arriving and a full day of travel, we were not grasping everything she told us. Needless to say, we did have questions after she left. Like how to use the phone to contact her with our questions. We never heard from her again. It would have been nice for a courtesy follow up call after 2-3 days, to make sure all was well. It took me 4 days to figure out to use the cell phone provided and I left her a message. I never heard back, but she might have called, but I was unfamiliar with how to retrieve voice mail. Judith could have called through out the day or evening and would have eventually reached us. Or she could have stopped by.

I expected to be comforted by using a group like Villas of Distinction to confirm that the cottage we rented would be of high-quality and we were not disappointed! Our cottage was just spectacular and even better than advertised, which is saying a lot because the online photos were amazing. If we can use Villas of Distinction again, we will!

Sapphire Seas Beach Estate Maui

By: sms

Reviewed on: 18 Apr 2017

Sapphire Seas Beach Estate Maui provided the dream location for our trip to Maui. The home more than suited the needs of our party of five. The kitchen was properly supplied for use by our outside chef, the location was convenient and the rooms were comfortably appointed. The true gem of this home, however, is the backyard. With a nice sized pool and hot tub, outdoor seating and dining, and beach access, you are treated to a magnificent sunset every night. It makes you want to never leave! This home was a vacation dream.

Once we got to the house, our stay was phenomenal. Tremendous facilities and wonderful women who took care of us. But dealing with the people at Villas of Distinction was a distinct pain. They would not provide a detailed invoice. They would not tell us the exact address of the house until a week before. They changed the 2 private parking places in our contract to One. They told us that if we arrived 2 hours late, we would have to find other accommodations. Fortunately our wonderful travel agent was able to straighten them out. They required full payment to be wired almost immediately, including a $2000 deposit 6 months in advance of our stay. The deposit was not automatically returned until we asked for it nearly a month after we left. We would not use this company in the future

Villa Aiola is a spectacular gem located in the Val D'Orcia with convenient access by car or train to all of Tuscany. This served as our home base for two weeks while we visited Florence, Siena, San Gimimnano, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pisa, Cinque Terre, Pienza, and more. The staff were all wonderful and attentive. We will be back for sure.

Tryall Family Vacation

By: Asheville Alan

Reviewed on: 25 Dec 2017

We took the whole family -- kids, wives, grandchildren for a "celebration" of our 70th birthday year. Stayed in the Sea Grass Villa (previously known as Villa Arrabella), which was wonderful, on six acres. Large, six bedrooms, nice size pool, easy access to beach and golf on property. The staff was fabulous -- 5 full time for our 9 guests. The team was led by Sheldon, who never missed a beat. Chef Damion was great -- delicious 3 meals per day. And they seemingly effortlessly accomodated varying tastes and needs -- food allergies, vegitarian, and little kids. They wouldn't let us lift a finger. A great venue.

The villa was perfect for my extended family. The accommodations were lovely, the villa had all the amenities and a lovely caretaker and manager. They were warm and welcoming and available but never obtrusive. The villa was central in location so we used it as a base for day trips. It was delightful to come back to the pool for a swim after exploring the hill towns in hot weather. The description and photos online were accurate though the travel times to the cities were underestimated.

Villa Cavalcanti in Chianti

By: Joy & Bill

Reviewed on: 09 Jul 2018

Our villa turned out just fine in the end, but there were several disruptions along the way. We had 3 separate agents from Villas of Distinctions due to turnover...information was not communicated between the agents and they requested last minute items. The contact information for our villa was not correct - two people hung up on us because they only spoke Italian, and the emergency phone number for Villas of Distinction (Saturday service) did not answer. We arrived to find 'estate auction' notices on the property and vacant buildings, but thanks to our driver who spoke Italian and finally reached someone, our villa was not part of the estate sale and was in a well maintained section of the estate. Pictures for villa Cavalcanti depicted the villa exactly as it was.

Italy Trip

By: Frabizzio Family Trip

Reviewed on: 08 Aug 2018

Two separate Villas, one, villa Allegra was outstanding - location, quality of the residence, local support, all exceeded description and was excellent. Would highly recommend to others. First class and met the level of distinction expected for the cost. Second villa, Villa Stella, was less distinctive but acceptable. Did not match description on website. Moderate accomodations for EU standards, would not recommend in future for several reasons. Benefit was that it included cleaning service during week. Expensive for what was included, great view but interior is dated, not well equipped, nice pool. Land locked outside of town of Amalfi, must have a car.

Family Vacation Dreams Really Do Come True!

Villa Cenote del Mar was everything we had hoped for and more! The staff was superb, Chef, housekeepers, concierge, gardner aka pool and beach groomer, night watchman - everyone went above and beyond to make our stay unforgettable! The pool's unique configuration was perfect for our four year olds; the beach though somewhat rocky was located in a cove enclosed by a coral reef and a perfect launching point for the kayaks, longboards, fishing and snorkeling. The villa was well maintained, the ensuite bedrooms spacious, beautifully appointed and each with a stunning view. This villa could accomadate larger groups, was more space than we really needed but we enjoyed every amenity and luxuriated in the roominess during our stay!

Villa was beautiful, clean, well staffed. The staff were very attentive to you’re very need The food was mediocre at best. Asked for tenderloin med rare for Christmas. Well done for everyone. Went off premise for meal great. Went on premis for beach party food great. Even though I loved the house and staff I would not go there again to pay a lot of money for 18 people for mediocre food and I think I am being kind. It cost 13K in food and extras for this trip Way to much money for food like that

The Villa of Distinction concierges...both Stateside(Miriam) and in St Lucia(Margueritte) were excellent. They knew the island, had top notch service providers to recommend, were proactive prior to the trip and were always there to help during our island stay. Miriam coordinated with Margueritte well before our departure and Margueritte picked up the ball seamlessly during our stay. Any question or request we had while in St Lucia was handled promptly and completely by Margueritte. She was our go-to person for everything from a flat tire to desired needed chairs and met our needs perfectly. And the villa itself which included a cook and housekeeper...just fantastic.

Excellent Villa

By: Steve L.

Reviewed on: 01 May 2019

Villa Estrella in Costa Rica was a beautiful 8 bedroom villa , situated on a hilltop overlooking the Pacific. The rooms were spacious, absolutely clean, and the service was outstanding. The infinity pool, and game room (pool, Direct TV, chess, wiFi, etc.) were an added plus. Chef Alberto, Bartender Misch, driver Balir, Housekeeper Doris , another housekeeper whose name I forget, Breakfast Chef Vittorio, and Concierge Diego all provided excellent service. I found VOD a little cumbersome to work with (had to coordinate mythic schedule, with travel agent with VOD, with owner, and often one-time VOD Concierge) , but the end result was five stars.

I was most excited about the stay at the villa, but as it turned out this was my least favorite accommodation. I stayed in touch with the point person who was to meet us at the villa. As it turned out we didn’t get to the villa until early evening. No one came to show us around and point out any nuisances. We did not have air conditioning for two of the five nights. One towel per person and no wash clothes for 5 nights was a disappointment. Light bulbs out on the patio. No water filter on the refrigerator. Missing keys for locking up the villa. Was never shown how the alarm system worked. Nothing major except for the air conditioning. You would think that they would pay attention to detail, but none of that.
