Happy Vacations Announces New Luxury Villa Portfolio

Happy Vacations has launched a new villa rental division named The Villa Portfolio. This new division is directed by renowned villa industry expert Robert Eastman.

    PORTLAND, OR, December 06, 2008 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Eastman has been a pioneer in the field of luxury villa rentals for over 30 years, as founder of one of America's first luxury villa rental companies in 1988. With extensive expertise in both property management and travel services, Eastman brings a wealth of experience to The Villa Portfolio. Eastman was most recently awarded the Cond Nast Traveler's "Top Villa Specialists" award.

Eastman has visited and inspected thousands of rental villas and is intimately acquainted with the finest and most luxurious villas in the world. Enjoying a close working relationship with properties, Eastman routinely speaks with the management and owners of villas and estates all over the globe, including Barbados, St. Martin, St. Barts, Anguilla, St. Thomas, St. John, Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Turks & Caicos, Cayman Islands, Jamaica, Mustique, Provence, the French Riviera, Tuscany and the Greek islands. Happy Vacations will be adding to The Villa Portfolio collection, with villas in the South Pacific including Hawaii, Tahiti and Fiji.

"Contrary to popular belief, a private villa vacation can prove to be very cost effective," states Eastman. "By renting a villa or luxury condominium, featuring all the trappings usually associated with only the most luxurious of vacations, one may actually maximize their vacation dollar." Located in the world's great resort areas, villas typically cater to those seeking luxurious accommodations in a private location. "This dream vacation can become an elegant and memorable reality thanks to the products and services offered by The Villa Portfolio," adds Eastman. "We have put together a unique collection of luxury villa rentals where value is as important as luxury."

Happy Vacations services travel agencies throughout the U.S. with 130 employees, including 21 satellite offices nationwide. Celebrating its 40th year in business, Happy Vacations provides a complete vacation experience, offering luxury vacations to Hawaii, 22 Caribbean island nations, Mexico, Fiji, the Cook Islands, Tahiti, Australia, New Zealand and Costa Rica.
