1) Top Destination for Anniversaries: Napa Valley, California

How many anniversaries have passed by without a proper celebration? Life’s too short—celebrate with your partner in Napa Valley this year. From the picturesque rolling landscapes, to the five-star cuisine, to the renowned vineyards—Napa is well equipped to play host to your romantic anniversary trip. Our residence lies within the world-renowned Calistoga Ranch, an Auberge Resort, and comes complete with an array of amenities from the celebrated spa to the exclusive Vintner Member Program.

2) Top Destination for Family Reunions: Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Always dreamed of getting several generations of your family together under one roof?  Now’s the time, and Hilton Head Island is the place. Hilton Head Island is small in size, making it a 100% bike-able island, but mighty in family-friendly activities. Our residence is located just steps from the sands of the #1 Best Beach in the Continental U.S. as ranked by Travel + Leisure and boasts a resort-style private pool and Jacuzzi, gourmet chef’s kitchen with seating for the whole family and nearly 4,500 sq. ft. of living space.

3) Top Destination for a Milestone Birthday Celebration: Los Cabos, Mexico

Milestone birthdays only come around every decade or so—if you or a loved one have one approaching, don’t pass up the opportunity to celebrate. Los Cabos has something for everyone, from its world-class golf to its picturesque waters to its bustling nightlife. Our two expansive residences are both located within the Puerto Los Cabos neighborhood and offer a combined 11 bedrooms, making them the perfect homes to play host to your extended family and friends. With both homes featuring fabulous outdoor living areas including resort style pools, fire pits, panoramic ocean views and plenty of seating, they are begging to host your next celebration.

4) Top Destination for a Girls’ Getaway: Florence, Italy

There are many reasons Florence is consistently ranked as the #1 Best City in the World. With exquisite food and wine, scenic views, and world-class shopping, it’s the perfect destination for a girls’ getaway with close friends and family. Our residence is made up of two separate one-bedroom apartments featuring elegant finishes, modern amenities and floor-to-ceiling windows to take in breathtaking views of the Arno River and the famed Ponte Vecchio. This jewel is located in the heart of Florence—you’ll be able to practically touch the Vasari Corridor—and our concierge team can arrange a fabulous trip filled with five-star dining experiences, artisan tours and jaunts to the Tuscan wine region.

5) Top Destination for a Guys’ Weekend: Park City, Utah

Park City is the rare mountain town with plenty to offer even if you have no interest in shredding through fresh powder—and the action isn’t limited to Sundance. Historic Main Street is still reminiscent of a silver mining town but is modernized with a plethora of restaurants, brew pubs and whiskey distilleries. Of course, this charming city also offers top ranked ski and snowboard facilities with more than 7,000 acres of terrain. Our five-bedroom Park City abode is mere steps from Main Street and the town lift. Take the lift to challenging ski trails during winter or to exhilarating mountain biking and hiking trails during summer. After a day full of activity, enjoy a sundowner on your private rooftop deck while taking in the stunning views with close friends.

Most Beautiful Cities in the World  by Condé Nast Traveler’s Reader’s Choice Awards

In 2016, we introduced a new way for investors to enjoy Equity Estates in the exclusive company of fellow members. In addition to the many special travel experiences within our luxury portfolio, investors can travel the world and enjoy once-in-a-lifetime, custom-crafted itineraries. We released two expeditions in 2016, both of which sold out in a matter of weeks. Our first expedition, a private yacht tour of the untouched Galapagos Islands, took place in March 2016 and an African Safari followed that December. Most recently our group explored Florence, the world’s top rated city, and the stunning Tuscan countryside like never before. The experience from start to finish was expertly crafted and everyone was dazzled. No detail was missed, and extraordinary surprises were drizzled throughout the week. “The Five Senses Tuscany Expedition was a magical way to explore and enjoy the sights and sounds of the region. We were surprised and delighted each day with unique and highly curated experiences. No detail was overlooked- from the transportation to the way each meal was carefully executed and presented. Each day was filled with surprises that exceeded our expectations. We all enjoyed the camaraderie and had great fun sharing stories of our favorite EE properties and experiences. I can’t wait for the next expedition!”
