I keep coming back to Boutique Homes because they offer a very comprehensive selection of places to stay, very personal service and all this without any commission. Can’t get any better.

Love your site

It was a pleasure to work with the Boutique Home team to make my trip to Los Angeles work. You found and recommended the perfect place for my stay. I love all the properties on your site and now, that I consider to offer my own apartment with you, I also get to know your attention to details and your overall customer service behind the scene.

Very good customer service

I was impressed right away with my Boutique Homes experience. Matt was extremely helpful and informative, I was walked through the entire process, and the transaction was seamless. Based on the level of customer service I received, I have no doubt that this will be my go-to site, both for the unique properties they represent and for the level of service I received.

You did the legwork for us .....

and guided us to very special places we probably wouldn’t have found otherwise. Thank you!!! And all this for free to us travelers. Can't imagine looking for the perfect place for a vacation anywhere else.

 Villa Olivi, Le Marche, #Italy Fresh, cool and dreamlike, the crisp and modern monochrome palette and earthy rustic structure are a stunning match. Stripped of any artifice, the bare bones minimalist style creates an amazing impact of cool and simple sophistication. And what a view!  Spinguera Ecolodge, Boa Vista, #CapeVerde (#Africa). Environmentally conscious unplugged and simple, this is a great escape.

 Herangtunet, Valdres, #Norway Squeezed in-between the Hegge Fjord and Jotunheimen, Norway’s highest mountain range, in the Norwegian province of Valdres, one can find the village of Heggenes. Here, at 500 meters altitude, surrounded by woods and water, is a magnificent estate, and right in the middle, just like in a fairy tale, is our sizable wooden home.  Antique Stone Courtyard, #SdeItzhak, #Israel A great collection of smartly curated antiques perfectly suited to a rural and historic manor house. We love the orchard setting and ancient stone construction that blends so well in the Israeli desert.
 Off-Grid House, #Pioneertown, #California A triumph of design, environmental consciousness and stunning natural beauty, this home treads lightly but with dramatic effect. The inspired contrast of wild rugged desert and sleek industrial modernism makes unplugged living amazingly stylish.  #tgif the Topanga house.
 Jardin Bergerie, Cote d'Azur, #France. We like the rustic simplicity and the serene romantic vibe here. The thorough but subtle restoration has left all of the original character and charm creating a sweet and chic update.  Built in 1739 by King Louis XV, this lovely Baroque building formerly housed a mill for the manufacture of royal linen. Located in the charming 12th century village of Montolieu along a tiny medieval street, the venerable facade looks much as it has for centuries but the interiors have undergone a distinctively artistic and modern renovation. The Linen Mill, #Carcassonne, #France
