Airbnb has become one of my staples in family-friendly travel bookings. We use Airbnb to get bigger places that make our kids more comfortable when we can’t confirm a large enough hotel room on our trips. Airbnb tends to be more cost effective when compared to paying for a large enough suite for our family of 4. Via Bloomberg, Airbnb has made an interesting acquisition in Luxury Retreats, “a Canadian manager of high-end rentals and services.”

Airbnb Acquires Luxury Retreats 

Airbnb Inc. bought Luxury Retreats in its biggest acquisition yet as the apartment-rental website takes steps toward becoming a full-service global travel company….

Luxury Retreats, with more than 4,000 properties around the world, has built a concierge service that Airbnb will be able to offer to its customers. Premium vacation-home rentals are a key growth area for the travel industry, which seeks greater profit margins on properties rented to wealthy globe-trotters.

Luxury Retreats

I took a look at Luxury Retreats website to see what kind of properties they have. They certainly have some untouchable options. But, I was also happy to see on the lower end some possibly attainable options.

On a quick search I found Luxury Retreats Beach properties ranging from $334/ night to over $141k per night. Big range!

Bottom Line

You can Sign up for Airbnb here and score $40 off your first reservation! While I don’t see myself being able to afford most of the properties that Luxury Retreats offers, I look forward to see Luxury Retreats merged into the Airbnb system for more options. From time to time Airbnb has offered discounts and different promotions, including on-going Delta 3X Miles With Airbnb and many different discounted Airbnb gift card dealsso here’s hoping!

  1. I’ve used Luxury Retreats several times and find them to be amazing. They are extremely attentive, well-run, responsible – I could go on and on. I usually go to them first when traveling.
