About Us


Our Commitment to Excellence

From the onset, LuxeVaca began through a unified vision of designing a business model that delivers our partners and guests with an unequivocal commitment to luxury vacation rentals. It is our belief that our steadfast focus on excellence will create strategic advantages for our company and our partners. By leveraging the following five strengths we endeavor to deliver competitive advantages to our Homeowners:

  1. The knowledge and experience we’ve acquired through real-world successes in owning and operating our own vacation properties both locally and internationally
  2. Our unique blend of over thirty combined years in the vacation rental industry, residential real estate sales and corporate marketing
  3. Our industry leadership and continual development of innovative technologies that provide our pool of select properties with unmatched global exposure
  4. Our continual development of operational systems and procedures that provide flawless execution of our property management and guest services
  5. Our management team’s formal training and ongoing use of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award criteria for service excellence. (The highest service award given yearly by the US Department of Commerce)
