So why rent a luxury home? There are tons of reasons why luxury house rentals are appealing to people everywhere.

Hosting these types of events and gatherings in a luxury house can mean the difference between an average gathering and a really memorable, highly successful one.

For instance, think about it in the case of a business meeting. Sure, you can meet in any old conference room or other standard office space, and the meeting will probably go fine.

But if you really want to impress those in attendance and facilitate the most effective communication and thinking, holding your meeting in a truly comfortable and high-quality space is a great way to make that happen.

There are other marketplaces out there (including Airbnb, VRBO, and the like) that facilitate short-term rentals of homes. It may be totally doable for travelers to rent a luxury home for a day. However, there are some reasons why renting a luxury home on these types of platforms is not ideal, and understandably so.

Luxury homeowners who list their properties on vacation rental platforms expect their guests to stay overnight. They thus treat the space more like a home share, rather than a place for hosting events, productions, and meetings. You may not even be allowed to host an event at these luxury homes!

Peerspace is different. It’s the world’s largest online marketplace for renting spaces by the hour or for the day, not for multiple days and nights like other rental marketplaces. You save money by renting a luxury home by the hour rather than for an overnight, multiple-day stay.

The platform makes it easy to connect you with luxury home rentals hosted by locals who expect you to host gatherings and professional events. The Peerspace search tool is intuitive and the site is simple and straightforward to browse. It also does a great job of facilitating communication between hosts and renters.
