living the dream can become a reality on an Owners Direct holiday

Living the millionaire lifestyle may seem like a distant dream to many of us – and we can only imagine what it must be like to own a luxury mansion. But what if we were able to live like a millionaire for one week or even two?

With the help of holiday rentals specialists Owners Direct it is possible to live in the lap of luxury for just a few weeks of the year without having to win the lottery. From infinity swimming pools with amazing panoramic ocean views, immaculate gardens and private cinemas to gyms, spas and staff on hand for every whim, living the dream can become a reality on an Owners Direct holiday.

Forget damp, musty holiday homes kitted out with chipped china and beds with sagging mattresses, Owners Direct is leading the way when it comes to luxurious holidays that aren’t out of reach. Accommodation on the site is of an exceptionally high standard, optional extras are becoming the norm and customer expectations are not only met but also exceeded.

Angela Southall Owners Direct Marketing Manager, commented: “As we saw with the recent £3.5 million sale of a house in the millionaire mile in Sandbacks, top location properties are becoming increasingly expensive and out of most people’s reach. However living in a luxury villa or a magnificent mansion in sunny climes can be a reality for many holidaymakers. At Owners Direct we have a wide range of celebrity style properties offering opulent living spaces, stunning swimming pools, tennis courts and staff so guests can live in the height of luxury, even if it is only for a week or two”.
