Strictly speaking, every home is designed by an architect, but BoutiqueHomes offers stays at architect-designed homes that are effusive with inspiration and creativity. The website lists a catalog of homes around the world on offer for short-term holiday stays, and those abodes are unique creations by some of the hottest architects working today.
With the rise in popularity of services like Airbnb, it's clear that consumers have no qualms with staying in an owned home as opposed to a semi-private space like a hotel room. BoutiqueHomes capitalizes on that willingness while also appealing to people's desire for a taste of the upper crust.
There are over 1,200 rentals on BoutiqueHomes located in countries as wide-ranging as France, Italy, and Spain to Mexico, Costa Rica, and Sri Lanka. Stays are charged at nightly or weekly rates, and since many of the homes are in relatively secluded towns, rental prices are comparable to those in city centers.
