The Five Star Destinations rating system is based on our knowledge and vision of a vacation property experience. Because personal experiences are considered utmost in our rating system, Five Star Destination homes are rated by our directors, representatives travel specialists, owners and guests on a constant basis
Our properties are evaluated upon aesthetics, architecture, amenities, staff and location. It important to note, that international homes can differ from the expectations of the American traveler. For example, the furnishings and bathrooms of a remarkable traditional international property built two hundred years ago may not reflect the highest level of luxury, but instead reflect the architecture and lifestyle of that era and culture. Not all furnishings are brand new, many antiques may have original or older coverings and bathrooms may have original tile and fixtures.
