Amazing website - haven't found another one like it. 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.

   Located along the southern tip of Pantelleria above the Bay of Nica, this nearly thirty acre estate is one of the largest on the island and sits atop a hill over looking the Mediterranean and North Africa in the distance. A chic oasis of traditional Pantescan and classic Sicilian design, the location of the island has influenced the unique architectural style and building techniques. Known as Dammusi, the structure’s authentic and rustic architectural features include thick stone walls, vaulted interiors and graceful arches that are unique to the island.
 This is @laura_austin enjoying her stay in Barcelona. The hotel is housed within a majestic and ornate Baroque exterior, making a dramatic leap into the future with cool interiors.  Our Wednesday afternoon mood. Tag someone you'd like to be here with! #corsica #letsgo
 Country chic life at A Leccia in Corsica. Surrounded by wild native plants, the gardens feature plenty of deck space for those laid back afternoons.  Charming, idyllic, cozy… all adjectives we could use to describe this traditional French cottage in the Dordogne. It was built way back in 1762. However, there’s nothing archaic about it. It was recently given a makeover, retaining original features while converting it into a thoroughly modern space. Complete with a gorgeous swimming pool.
 Corsica is a very special place to us. We keep going back.. Tag someone you want to be here with!  Very cool, very Berlin. This apartment oozes edgy swagger and bold, artistic spirit.
 Want to spend the weekend here? We don't blame you. This place has #getaway written all over it.  Inside and out, this villa is a lovely tribute to nature. We love the use of raw natural materials and handcrafted features that create a feeling of rustic refinement and primitive cool.  Located in the heart of Berlin’s Mitte district, this apartment has been featured in numerous architectural and design magazines – and it’s not hard to see why.  Created as an homage to the diversity and creativity of Berlin, designers and partners Annabell Kutucu and Michael Schickinger have collaborated on several other residential projects around the world, each a reflection of their complementary creative skills and eye for design.
 An extraordinary and visionary design concept born from surrealism, mythology and cosmic inspiration, this handcrafted “village” carved out of the lush island hillsides has a magical, whimsical and downright unusual quality we love.  Awarded the Green Pencil Award from the Chamber of Architecture and Spatial Planning, this property in Podcetrtek was developed as a sustainable luxury concept with each of the six apartments designed with local clay plaster and stone, responsibly sourced solid wood and a diffusion open-walled construction allowing the buildings to breathe. The interiors are stylish and modern with all natural elements and come equipped with kitchens, baths and a private terrace.
 When you think of a French farmhouse, you think stone walls, tiled roof, climbing roses, and acacia and walnut trees. Ideally it’s surrounded in vineyards. With this property, you get all that plus a private swimming pool.  Created to connect you with nature through innovative design and the highest international environmental standards, this collection of eco-apartments in Podcetrtek, Slovenia puts both style and the environment first!
 How's this for a #pantelleria look? Start planning your vacation and don't forget... This place is stylish!  The bright, open spaces in this property in Galicia, Spain, are delineated in varying visual relationships and interconnecting living spaces that form striking architectural interaction throughout. The main floor features a large south facing glass wall with views of the sea and gardens with a fireplace and lounge area and state of the art oak paneled kitchen that serves as the focal point for entertaining and family gatherings.
