Welcome Beyond features a curated selection of some of the most beautiful and unique vacation properties and boutique hotels in the world. The hand-picked getaways include city gems like the beautifully restored Alemanys 5 in Spain, countryside estates like the rustic-chic Castello di Vicarello in Italy and spectacular beach escapes like Villa Mayana in Costa Rica.

"What all of our properties have in common is that they’re exclusive – in the best sense of the word," the site’s founders write. "Each is singular, memorable and definitely worth writing home about."

Apart from the standard information, Welcome Beyond includes background information on the owner, including a personal interview that digs beyond the obvious to talk about the owner's inspiration, the architecture, the style and how to best spend your time there.
