A Marriott Homes and Villas property in Queenstown, New Zealand

Marriott International has introduced its premium and luxury home rentals offering, Homes and Villas, to the Asia Pacific market with the opening of over 350 properties across Australia and New Zealand.

Part of Marriott Bonvoy travel program, the platform offers members private accommodation options from beachside villas to city penthouses and vineyard properties, in destinations such as Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Orange in Australia, and Auckland and Queenstown in New Zealand.

“Private home rental offerings are tremendously popular right now as travellers look for ways to re-connect with loved ones, as well as to continue to balance remote work, school, and leisure,” said Homes and Villas by Marriott International Vice President, Jennifer Hsieh.

“We are thrilled to be bringing Homes & Villas by Marriott International to Australia and New Zealand, providing our guests with a curated selection of the best premium and luxury homes in the market. These homes provide the space and amenities expected from a luxury experience and the backing of a trusted travel company.”

Several of the properties feature balconies, pools, gourmet kitchens and large entertaining areas, making them appealing to large groups of both domestic and overseas travellers, and pet-friendly accommodation is also available through the platform.

Each home is managed by a specialist property manager and offers 24/7 support for guests during their getaway.

Launched in May 2019, Homes and Villas by Marriott International was created to provide Marriott Bonvoy’s 164 million+ members with more options when they travel, and allows them to earn and redeem points during their stay.
