Questions & AnswersWhat is VacationHouse Destinations?
VacationHouse Destinations, LLC™ is the first, truly affordable destination club where members enjoy the experience most like having their own vacation house, but without the costs and maintenance of second home ownership. Members have the ability to choose from a growing portfolio of beautiful, high quality vacation homes for spur-of-the-moment weekend retreats, as well as popular fly-to destination properties.How is VacationHouse Destinations different from other destination clubs?
VacationHouse Destinations is different because it brings together the flexibility and affordability of nightly rentals with the convenience and accessibility to beautiful vacation homes like a destination club. There are other destination clubs on the market, but they only cater to the select few that can afford premium destination properties at premium prices. By creating exclusive relationships with owners of private residence vacation homes, VacationHouse Destinations becomes the first destination club that does not rely on high membership fees in order to acquire new properties. Property owners become members and enjoy all the benefits the club offers and in turn the club is able to expand the portfolio offerings into new locations to meet the needs of our members and keep membership costs low.Will the club continue to add new destinations?
