Canterbury, New Zealand: An Outdoor Playground

By now you may start to think that we have a thing for the outdoors... And you're right. When it comes down to traveling and exploring, the more remote and wild the better. Coming across Canterbury, New Zealand was a bit of a surprise at first, since it is a scarcely populated part of the country often overshadow by more popular neighbors. However, we were stunned by its natural beauty when we discovered the island and its newest addition to our collection of properties- the Pigeon Bay Retreat. ....

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.

 Details from the poolside at the beautiful Fazenda Nova in Algarve, Portugal. Here, a subtly landscaped garden surrounds the house and leads to an infinity pool nestled among lavender and rosemary plants. Pods hang from olive trees around the property, and sun loungers dot the large terraced deck.  Colors, colors, and more colors!  This family-friendly home designed by the well-known Portugese architect, João Favila Menezes, Countryside Retreat has become an important reference point for contemporary architecture in the region, and as such, respects the fundamental principles of traditional Alentejano architecture in its thoughtful construction.
 Tucked away in the rolling countryside of the Eastern Algarve, this traditional Portuguese family home and farm has been given a stylish modern makeover while retaining many of its original features. Located near the beautiful historic coastal town of Tavira, it’s only minutes away from the region’s famous coastline and beaches.

 Finds from the Rastro Market in #Madrid @todorastro   There’s a rustic warmth and authenticity to this urban apartment in Madrid that we love. Restored to salvage the original character and charm of early 18th century Madrid, the weathered patinas and cool vintage style are creatively paired with a fresh, modern update.
 There's nothing better than a long meal with friends and family on a holiday. The set up at this property in Rastros, Madrid is cozy and stylish - perfect for the chic nomad in you!  Tuesdays in Naxos Island - http://b-ho.me/kallosnaxos
 Memorial Day weekend feelings ✨ where are you headed? #beachlife  Constructed in whitewashed adobe and graceful soft lines, the architectural profile of this home in Naxos, Greece, appears both primitive and refined. The interiors feature an eclectic and contrasting mix of traditional and contemporary furnishings and decor with a beautiful palette of rustic wood, stone and natural materials. All handcrafted, there’s a distinctively traditional aesthetic and a meticulous attention to detail.
 Another peek at the Seaview Studio in Syracuse, Sicily. The simple, modern space, features full-length windows that swings open into the private garden, with views across the greenery to the beach beyond. #paradise ✨  Situated on over an acre of very private and secluded gardens over looking the Cycladic landscape and the Aegean in the distance, this newly conceived estate is a soulful and slightly whimsical installation with a traditional sense of history, island style and a modern attitude. In addition, our summer special includes free nights and additional 20% off from Jun 10th to 30th and Aug 20 to Sep 30. Pay 7 stay 8 nights, pay 14 stay 16 nights !!
 This small studio apartment is located two minutes from the Mediterranean shores in Plemmirio, Sicily. It has strong lines and a bold color scheme, with windows leading out into a pretty private garden. Perfect for one person, or a couple.  Imaginative and original in it’s design and composition, this estate in Naxos Island, Greece,  is charming and very distinctive with a delightful balance of contemporary and rustic sophistication. There’s something playful and sweet that we love along with the unique architectural elements and handcrafted attention to detail.
 @patriciapmfi captured the Portuguese sunset in between the streets of Alentejo so nicely that we may have to just go and experience it in person. Let's go to Portugal? Tag someone you want to go with ✨  Details from the Nomad House in Essaouira as captured by @loloburt
