VHR, WORLDWIDE was a pioneer in the idea of renting vacation and other investment properties when unoccupied by their owners.  Starting in 1982, we were instrumental in introducing the notion of reserving villas on the world stage.  

We perfected the villa rental concept back in 1982


     For over 40 years, VHR, WORLDWIDE has been offering the most comprehensive collection of exceptional, hand-selected Estates, Villas, Castles, Chateaux, Private Islands, Apartments, and Condominiums throughout The Bahamas, Caribbean, Central America, Europe, Mexico and U.S.A. for short-term vacation, event or business rental.


     Additionally, we are able to coordinate your other travel needs - including airline reservations, transfers, car rentals, nannies/ babysitters, sightseeing and other requirements - to ensure that you enjoy your visit to one of our properties to the fullest.  And if your travel plans require a hotel room prior to arrival in your villa or you would like to add a cruise to your trip, we can take care of that as well.


Why book with us?  


     It's quite simple:  VHR, WORLDWIDE has been a leader in villa rentals for over four decades because we are intimately familiar with the properties and destinations in our portfolio (yes, we've been there). We have long-standing relationships with the property owners and managers of the accommodations we offer, know many of the villa staffs personally, and enjoy a wonderful rapport with the most reliable service providers in each destination to complete your perfect vacation or business venue.  


     We believe that it's important for you to be introduced to the various destinations where we offer our properties, and have provided - as a part of our website and service - an overview of each country/region/island to help you decide which one offers the perfect environment for your next trip.


     We present an unbiased assessment of each of our accommodations to ensure that your experience is not only memorable, but that you will come to rely on our expert "matching skills".  We want you to think of us first to book your next trip ... and also recommend us highly with confidence, to your family, friends and colleagues.


     Our seasoned Villa Specialists and Group Sales Managers will guide you - based on your particular interests and requirements - to the appropriate destination and ideal accommodation best suited to your needs.  We listen, we understand, and we are here to "make it happen" so you will be delighted with your choice.


     And once you have made your plans with us, we will share with you our favorite beaches, restaurants, shopping, activities, and other points of interest so that you make the most out of your experience.


     Lastly, we DO NOT charge a booking fee!


It's all about value 


     Don't be fooled into thinking that renting a villa is expensive because nothing could be further from the truth.  Whether you seek a shabby-chic Bahamian beach bungalow, or a comfy condo, or a famous designer's Parisian pied-a-terre, or a private estate or secluded island for that very special event, renting from VHR, WORLDWIDE always compares favorably to other lodging options. We offer vacation properties that run the full gamut, from conservatively priced to ultra-deluxe and everything in between.


     Because we work directly with the owners and managers, we are able to provide you with the best possible rates and quick turn-around for any questions or special needs that you might have regarding the properties we represent.


Location ... Location ... Location


     Our company's reputation has been built on the fact that all of VHR, WORLDWIDE's hand-selected rental properties are situated in desirable locations, fully appointed, and generally staffed. Also, many of the villas and private islands we offer are available exclusively through VHR, WORLDWIDE as a result of the personal relationships we enjoy with the owners.  


We add that personal touch


     We have many friends and colleagues at the destinations where we offer our properties who will keep an eye out for you, and special requests (with reasonable lead time) are not a problem for us.


We are experts at helping you plan your Groups


     It's all in the details!  Organizing a group trip can be a time-consuming, frustrating and cumbersome task.  Our staff has many years of experience in the hospitality and travel industry to assist you with the planning, execution and on-site management of a family reunion, destination wedding, business meeting, incentive program or another group venue. 


Special interests?


     Are you looking for the best bonefishing spot in The Bahamas?   Golfing at Sandy Lane?  Snorkeling or diving in Cozumel?  A perfect yoga and wellness retreat?  Fine dining in the BVIs?  The best duty-free shopping in the Caribbean?  We have done it and can help ... we have villas and condominiums for rent there!   


Our repeat business says it all


     We are genuinely proud that, in many cases, several generations of our clients and their Travel Agents have been booking with us.


We support Travel Agents and appreciate their service


     Since we opened our doors in 1982, VHR, WORLDWIDE's executives and staff have played an active role in travel agency associations.  We consider Travel Agents to be important partners and key to our success.  We support them through our memberships in their organizations, volunteering on their Boards, offering villa training programs, and participating in their trade shows and other events.  We have the pleasure of working with more than 7,000 Travel Agents worldwide to provide the most advantageous options and best customer service for their clients.


We give back, locally and globally

The media endorses  us!

     "From beginning to end, our trip to Cozumel was perfectly planned by VHR, Worldwide.  It was top-notch and stress-free.  From the overnight stay at Newark Airport (where VHR arranged for us to leave our car free of charge for the duration of our trip) to make sure we made our flight on time the next morning, to our landing in Cozumel, Lori and her team took great care of us.  It was their recommendation that we go to Cozumel.  Never having been to Mexico, I was impressed with our beautiful beachfront townhouse that had a private pool, the ease to acquire our rental car (thank you), and the wealth of information that VHR provided on local sights, restaurants, shopping, diving, etc..  Everyone was so helpful and friendly - we were treated like precious jewels!  I highly recommend VHR, Worldwide.  They take great pride in what they do and I look forward to working with them again to make my vacation dreams come true."                                                                  - Karen S. (2008)
