Stay isolated in a luxury villa

16 March 2020

Why a private villa might be the perfect escape for a staycation in isolation amongst nature during the Coronavirus crisis……

We know that the Covid-19/Coronavirus situation is an unprecedented event that has affected hundreds of thousands of people across the globe, and caused disruption that a few weeks ago would have seemed beyond comprehension to most.


We also know that international travel is off the table for most, but for our fellow kiwi friends, we have a selection of villas across the country offering a remote haven in which you can isolate yourself from the world, and a villa holiday may be your opportunity to enjoy a getaway without coming into contact with others and putting yourself at risk of infection. Perhaps you have had to cancel an overseas trip and would still love to get away from it all, or perhaps you are simply overdue a holiday but want to stay close to home. You may even be a new international arrival into the country looking for a base to self-isolate for 14 days following the new restrictions in place.


A Holiday Home is a safe place to stay…

With a villa, unlike a hotel, there is no need for you to come into contact with anyone else – you can simply lock yourself away in a beautiful home, and enjoy the natural beauty of the surroundings. We can stock the fridge with food and local wines prior to your arrival and grocery delivery can be arranged during your stay. If you prefer to not cook on your holiday, many towns offer a restaurant delivery service such as Queenstown’s Food on Q, and Wanaka’s Wana feed, offer restaurant prepared dishes directly to your door (with contactless delivery in place in light of the current situation).


The benefit of choosing to book through a professional property management service such as MajorDomo for your villa holiday instead of browsing Airbnb in the current climate is you can rest assured knowing that the property is professionally cleaned between guests, with professional cleaning companies taking extra precautions and have been adjusting their already very high standards to ensure when you do arrive, everything is completely spotless and disinfected.


Although it may not be the Balinese retreat or USA escape you had been planning, a villa holiday in New Zealand could still allow you to enjoy some time away so that you don’t have to sacrifice entirely your vacation time. Enjoy a relaxing time reading books, spending quality time with the family, catching up on the newest Netflix series, cooking up a storm, soaking up the natural beauty of the surroundings or simply indulging in some lovely lay-ins to recoup a few zzz’s.


Enjoy spectacular views, total privacy, and a peaceful retreat without any need to make contact with others from these remote and private properties, each with hugely discounted rates for the coming months:
