The Hideaways Club unlocks an ingenious concept in luxury property ownership
Imagine having the keys to numerous luxury properties throughout the world, yours for the choosing and all with a minimum £1 million price tag. The Hideaways Club offers just this.
The exclusive shared ownership club allows members to invest in, and holiday in, exquisite luxury homes in fantastic locations across the globe, ranging from 12th century Tuscan farmhouses deep in the olive groves and beachfront villas on paradise islands, to Broadway penthouses overlooking Times Square. The club is perfect for those looking to invest in a second home, but who want the flexibility of travelling to different locations rather than being restricted to holidays in the same place every year and who don’t want the hassle of maintaining a foreign property.
Investors who buy into one of The Hideaways Club funds benefit from an intelligent investment in a portfolio of properties across the globe, along with the opportunity to join an exclusive lifestyle and destination club, enabling them to holiday in a range of properties owned by the funds. Membership is supported by a first class concierge service both in the UK and at the chosen destination to help organise transfers, holiday itineraries, dinner reservations and sightseeing. In addition there are a number of exclusive member events, such as bespoke golf or ski trips and tickets to lifestyle events and exhibitions.
The Hideaways Club offers two funds:
• The Classic Collection offers a choice of 43 stunning villas and chalets owned by The Hideaways Club in beautiful locations across the world, such as France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Mauritius, South Africa and South East Asia. Members also have access to a further portfolio of 200 luxury villas through reciprocal agreements with other destination clubs. The properties typically accommodate 8-10 guests. Entry Level price for the Classic Collection start with a Lifestyle Associate membership at £88,000.
• The City Collection offers 7 beautiful city centre apartments in some of the most iconic cities of the world, such as New York, Prague, Berlin, Istanbul, Bangkok and Dubai, with a further choice of 6 homes available through reciprocal agreements, giving a total of 13 luxury city homes for members to choose from. The apartments typically accommodate 4-6 guests. Entry level price for an Associate membership starts at £69,500.
The Hideaways Club continues to add extremely desirable properties to its portfolio with the aim of owning a total of 100 homes across the globe in the Classic Collection and 100 in the City Collection. Current members’ views on the most desirable locations for these new properties are carefully considered.
Commenting on the benefits of The Hideaways Club, CEO Poonam Dhawan-Leach, explained: “Our members are making a clear lifestyle choice when they join The Hideaways Club. They like the lower capital investment required compared with buying a second home, the flexibility we offer, the wide choice of luxury homes to stay in, all beautifully furnished but with very different ambiences and characters, plus the attention to detail and convenience of our concierge service. This is underpinned with the knowledge that they are investing in properties spread across different countries and are therefore less exposed to the vagaries of any particular country’s property market, plus they will benefit from lifelong memories and great experiences along the way. With the property market improving, now is the perfect time to invest in The Hideaways Club.”
