The Boutique Home Experience.

Impressed ...

I have to mention to my success indeed with my home Glass Cube on Boutique Homes ... massive page views and inquiries ... a surprise to us, happy to work with you ... never expected it ... impact!!!!!!! I like the clients Boutique Homes has sent me... all super nice people. ‘Creative professionals’ ... more sophisticated than the folks from other sites.

I keep coming back ...

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.
