VIVLA's Criteria for Choosing the Perfect Vacation Homes for Co-ownership

At VIVLA, selecting the ideal vacation home for co-ownership isn’t just about finding a stunning property; it’s about discovering a space where luxury, comfort, and practicality meet. Here’s an inside look at the specific criteria we use to ensure every home we select is not just a place to stay, but a destination in itself.

Elite Selection

First and foremost, we filter through the market to identify homes within the top 5% nationwide. This elite selection ensures that every property we consider has already established itself as a cut above the rest. Whether it's the architectural design, the state of preservation, or the unique features of the home, historical revaluation, our standards are non-negotiable.

Luxury and Livability

A VIVLA-worthy home must excel in both exclusivity and comfort. We look for properties that blend exclusive design with a welcoming atmosphere. These homes should make owners proud to showcase them and be comfortable enough for owners to relax and enjoy downtime with family and friends. VIVLA hits that perfect balance between showpiece and haven.

Move-In Ready Condition

We ensure that each property is in ready-to-move-in condition. Some of our homes require no major renovations or repairs at the time of purchase. We maintain this standard so our co-owners can start their vacations the moment they get their keys without dealing with contractors.

Desirable Locations

Location plays a key role in our selection process. Our properties are strategically situated in or near sought-after vacation spots, ensuring they are not only valuable but also desirable. Most of these locations are within easy driving distance of major urban areas or accessible by nearby airports, making it easy for owners to escape without extensive travel plans.

Community and Conformity

We select homes that fit seamlessly into vibrant communities known for their quality and exclusivity. This approach ensures that each VIVLA home is surrounded by other high-caliber properties, fostering a sense of community and belonging among co-owners and enhancing the overall vacation experience.

Exceptional Amenities

Every VIVLA home is equipped with premium, resort-like amenities that enhance the living experience. Depending on the location and climate, these can include features like hot tubs, breathtaking views, chef’s kitchens, pools, and outdoor entertainment areas. These amenities are selected to impress and provide functional benefits that elevate every stay.

The ‘Wow’ Factor

Our selection is based on a property's visual and emotional impact. We look for homes with a distinctive ‘wow’ factor—properties that stand out due to their aesthetic appeal, unique design elements, or stunning surroundings. In photos and in person, these homes should grab your heart right away.

Modern Conveniences

Finally, we prioritize homes that offer modern conveniences and have been either newly built or recently renovated to include contemporary comforts. This ensures that each home meets current standards for technology, energy efficiency, and overall functionality, which are essential for a truly relaxing and trouble-free vacation experience.
