Equity Estates homes are well-equipped to play host to extended family or group vacations

For most travelers, the idea of taking all the branches of a family tree on a trip together is daunting. Visions of arguments over where to stay, where to eat and what to do are surely swimming through your head. But fear not–the concierge staff at Equity Estates destination club are experts in seamlessly creating inspired vacations for your family, accommodating the toddlers to the grandparents and everyone in between.

According to The Wall Street Journal and Travel + Leisure, multigenerational and group travel are two of the biggest travel trends this year. In fact, it has been deemed the fasted growing segment in the $7.5 trillion travel industry. From extended families to groups of friends or coworkers, traveling in large groups is on the rise. Proponents of this type of travel say taking trips together creates life-long memories, allows them to spend quality time with loved ones and fosters an ideal environment for celebrating milestones.

In a travel survey conducted by Preferred Hotel Group, 77% of respondents agreed that taking a multigenerational vacation “is something they try to do every year.” This sentiment is especially evident among Millennials and grandparents– presumably a reflection of their desires to spend more time together.

Equity Estates’ private luxury residences are well equipped to play host for this type of travel, featuring gourmet kitchens, very spacious living and dining areas with plenty of seating and even resort-style private pools. Often seen as a second home alternative, the residences in Equity Estates’ portfolio offer all the comforts and intimacies of a private vacation home while also providing the perks and amenities that come with a stay at a five-star resort.

Traveling with a large group can come with many hassles, especially if you’re in charge of the planning. Equity Estates will handle all the details, from transportation to and from the airport to daily housekeeping to pre-stocking the fridge with your favorite goodies—no task is too big for too small.

The logistics of traveling with small children can be even more overwhelming. Equity Estates properties are built for families, and our concierge staff will help make your vacation worry-free every step of the way.  Each of the homes in our impressive portfolio comes fully equipped with everything from Pack ‘N Plays to high chairs, and our staff can make arrangements for any specialty item to be waiting for you upon your arrival. Our local hosts even vet highly qualified babysitters in each of our destinations, providing you with the perfect excuse for an adults-only night out.

 

There are some things money can’t buy. Powerful family bonds, wonderfully enriching experiences and lifelong memories are a few.

Though these things can’t be bought, Equity Estates can help facilitate them by bringing your family together through inspired, custom-crafted vacation experiences in a portfolio of private homes that you also own.
