Why You Should Book a Vacation Rental with Boutique Homes
A design-savvy alternative to Airbnb has arrived
Sure, Airbnb may have some cool properties. But we found a new site that features only the dreamiest of vacation rentals: Boutique Homes.
The site zeroes in on homes and boutique hotels that are architecturally significant or look as if they could be featured on the pages of Elle Decor.
Have a look at these four choice properties. We’re guessing you’d be happy to call any of these home for a week or two.
