Purpose Built Vacation Home

Purpose Built homes are custom homes built more with the vacation home guest in mind as opposed to a custom home built more to the specifications and wants of an owner. Purpose built homes are still custom homes and the owner has direct input into all aspects of the design and construction but the overall product is designed specifically with short term rental in mind and to be able to generate maximum annual revenue.
By focusing on what the guests look for in a vacation rental, custom homes create a unique vacation experience that you can only get with a Purpose Built.

The end results are delighted guests, and a well-performing rental property for the homeowner.

Purpose Built vacation homes are an evolution of the latest vacation homes and designs, offering a new and unique vacation home experience that surpasses the traditional vacation home model and hotel/resort.
