Top hol­i­day homes

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Travel -

FROM a chic, art-filled apart­ment a stone’s throw from the Eif­fel Tower, to a lux­u­ri­ous villa on the edge of Lake Como in Italy, Tri­pAd­vi­sor has re­leased a list of the top va­ca­tion rental homes on its site for trav­ellers of all bud­gets.

The in­au­gu­ral Trav­el­ers’ Choice Awards for Rentals recog­nises 30 of the top va­ca­tion homes, based on trav­eller re­views and opin­ions.

Prop­er­ties are di­vided into three cat­e­gories high-end, midrange and af­ford­able.

Paris-bound trav­ellers may be in­ter­ested in the top-rated va­ca­tion rental in Tri­pAd­vi­sor’s midrange cat­e­gory, which is lo­cated within walk­ing dis­tance of the Eif­fel Tower and clocks in at US$177 (RM760) a night.

The Paris apart­ment isn’t for min­i­mal­ists though, as the colour pal­ette is a kalei­do­scope of ap­ple greens, hot pink and mauves. Walls are lined with com­ple­men­tary ab­stract art.

In the high-end cat­e­gory, a lux­u­ri­ous Ital­ian villa that sleeps eight snagged the top spot, for fea­tures that in­clude lake­front views and wrap-around ter­race.

And the top-rated af­ford­able va­ca­tion rental can be found in Manch­ester. The con­tem­po­rary, sleek condo sleeps six peo­ple for US$130 (RM558) a night.

The list of 30 prop­er­ties in­cludes rentals in cities like Asheville, North Carolina, Ni­a­gara Falls, Canada, Am­s­ter­dam (the Nether­lands), Yosemite Na­tional Park (Cal­i­for­nia), Rome (Italy), Ed­in­burgh (Scot­land) and Bali. – AFP Re­laxnews
