In time for the holidays, Time & Place announces it is booking iconic holiday excursions in winter wonderlands like Vail, Colorado, tropical oases like St. Barts and in other destinations around the world for people who want to take advantage of vacation home rentals but who don’t want to forego the personalized services of a concierge. Time & Place’s penchant for taking care of the details allows guests to be carefree and to relax and enjoy an otherwise somewhat stressful holiday season. Concierges are feeling festive as they plan holiday favorites for guests – and because they are local experts, travellers enjoy classic and sophisticated regional favorites that a tourist wouldn’t otherwise know about.

“I count on my concierges to create a holiday experience beyond the guest’s imagination and expectations,” said Mitch Willey, founder of Time & Place. “Time & Place concierges leverage their contacts and intel to connect guests with the best their destinations have to offer.”

Time & Place concierge holiday recommendations include:

  •     Have a signature fragrance blended at a specialty shop in Nantucket
  •     In Paris, the twinkling Christmas lights of the Eiffel Tower; the beloved lighting ceremony on the Champs Elysees at Thanksgiving time; holiday music concerts in Paris churches — Notre Dame is a favorite; after-hours private shopping at Le Bon Marche, Printemps and Galleries Lafayette; dazzling ice-skating rinks such as at the Hotel de Ville; or the famous Christmas market in Strasburg.
  •     Greet carollers with black cake and punch from the beautiful tropical home in La Samanna in St. Martin.
  •     In Buenos Aires, tour through festively decorated neighborhoods and San Telmo markets; and guidance on art, antiques and other auction treasures – even have them mailed home.
  •     A St Barts holiday shopping spree with a personal shopper and someone to help carry treasures among the glamour of this Caribbean wonderland.
  •     In Vail, Colorado, leave holiday shopping and decorating behind for an exhilarating ride through the trees on a zip line then into a heated gondola to enjoy the remarkable mountain vistas.
  •     In California, a great view aboard a private yacht of the show-stopping historic Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade, or the old world charm of a Venetian gondola as it cruises the enchanting canals and waterways of Naples Island.

But whether guests are trying to escape it all, or fit in some last minute shopping, Time & Place personal concierges will ensure the vacation is tailored and uninterrupted by the demands of outside life. Vacationers often leave with the most-cherished and perfect holiday gift—incredible shared memories with their loved ones.
