One Location—Endless Possibilities

Gather your friends and family for a private experience in a place that's all yours. Our Singular Stays settle you into one accommodation for the duration of your trip (trust us, these are the types of digs you won't want to leave) and elevate it with curated activities and events that immerse you fully in your setting. We've hand-picked a collection of exclusive properties—like villas, castles, lodges and more—that host only your group and pair them with the expertise of our Experience Designers for a vacation that's as comfortable and care-free as it is engaging.

Your Home Away from Home Awaits

Check out a few of our favourite places for private experiences, offering the comfort and luxury of feeling at home while you're on the road with family and friends.

Takeovers in North America

Turn rustic ranches and island-perched hotels into your group's very own exclusive retreat. Venture to the Wild West with a private takeover of places like Wyoming's Brush Creek and The Ranch at Rock Creek in Montana. Or head to Eastern Canada and experience Maritime magic at Fogo Island Inn. This glass beacon of whimsical architecture peers over the craggy coastline off Newfoundland and features 29 suites, all of which you can reserve for your nearest and dearest. Looking to get closer to nature? Opt for a private houseboat charter on Lake Powell and elevate the experience with luxury camping on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon for a secluded moment in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Set Sail Aboard Your Personal Yacht

Seafaring travellers can venture off-land along Europe's most spectacular coastlines. Picture yourself bobbing across the Adriatic, sailing through the Dalmatian Islands, Istria and gliding into Venice aboard a state-of-the-art private yacht. Pause along the way at port-of-calls that welcome you with hikes and bike rides through Roman relics and natural parks, lunch in hilltop towns and wine tastings at burgeoning estates. Over in the environs of Italy, sidle up to the shores of Sardinia, Corsica and Sicily's Aeolian islands from your catamaran. If you'd rather make a splash closer to home, travel to Canada's West Coast for an adventure aboard the Pacific Yellowfin or journey to the mythical Haida Gwaii aboard an eco-friendly sailboat.

Experience Africa from a Private Home

In Cape Town, get to know South Africa for its beachy vibes in a villa on the slopes of Lion's Head. Sip regional wine during private tastings and watch the sun slip away behind the Atlantic from your oceanside deck, while a personal chef whips up your favourite dish (using local ingredients, of course). Safari bound, lodges and villas that host one group at a time let you go off-the-grid without compromising on comfort and style and give you an up-close look at the continent's famed wildlife and unspoiled nature reserves.

Soak up the Sun from Your Villa

Embrace life by the sea in a white-washed Greek villa, shining like a beacon over the cobalt blues of the Med. Or let us lead the way to a secret hideaway on the nearly untouched island of Thirassia across the caldera from Santorini. Over in Italy, savour La Dolce Vita in a sepia-hued villa amid the vineyards and hilltop towns of Tuscany or head to the Amalfi Coast to overlook the colourful fisherman's houses and sparkling turquoise shores. A traditional farmhouse in Provence lets you lazily fill your days with rounds of pétanque while you sip on rosé from the Côtes du Rhône, though challenge-seekers might prefer a spin up Mont Ventoux. Get to know Croatia from your glamourous stone villa, cradled between the Adriatic and mountain peaks, giving you equal access island-hopping adventures or leg-working hikes.

Live in Luxury in a European Castle

Fairytales become a reality when you wake up in a castle—particularly with staff at your beck-and-call and beautifully tended grounds that are yours to wander. Perhaps a château in France's Loire Valley beckons. Known as "The Valley of Kings", this is where royalty sought postcard-perfect countryside scenes and built their regal homes accordingly. Be enchanted by whimsical gardens, pedal riverside bike paths and canoe past abbeys and fortresses. Meanwhile, in the British Isles, restored castles and stately manor homes let you live like the aristocracy while activities like falconry, skeet shooting, golfing and high tea immerse you in the local culture.
