What Others Say About The Site
"Billing itself as “temporary housing for chic nomads,” this Web site offers a collection of unusual lodgings…for the traveler who likes offbeat places and properties. The site is also good for price-conscious travelers — a “Cheap and Chic” section includes one of the oldest homes in Kyoto for $144 a night…With lively property descriptions, photos, practical information, a blog and reviews by previous visitors, there is little you won’t know about the property before you book."
The Practical Traveler, The New York Times, May 2012
"For people whose biggest travel nightmare is beige furniture and shag carpeting, Boutique-Homes is the answer. It vets rental houses and small hotels by style and location, but still includes affordable properties like a chic little cottage in Venice, California for $150 per night."
The Picky Traveler, Sunset Magazine, May 2012
"Most travel web sites dont have a criteria for who they accept. this web site has carefully selected exceptional places with character and authenticity in a wide range of destinations.
It has taken the guess work out of traveling. We believe privacy is the most important luxury one can have and this is offered by the unique homes presented."
Jorge Almada, Designer Casamidy, March 2011
" Sifting through the flood of new home-stay sites, we found the tightly edited collection on Boutique-Homes.com to be one of our favorites……."
Daily Candy, Aug 2010
"Think of the site as a Hollywood agent, but instead of finding you scripts and bullying studio chiefs, it’s scouring the earth in search of souped-up vacation homes"
Urban Daddy, Sept 2010
"I’m afraid I’ve already spent way too long wading trough gorgeous houses and dreaming about a holiday."
