The expansion into these new markets adds over 350 premium and luxury homes to the platform in prime leisure destinations, including Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Orange in Australia, and Auckland and Queenstown in New Zealand – just to name a few.
With Australia’s interstate and international borders now open, and with New Zealand’s borders soon to follow, Homes & Villas by Marriott International is well-positioned to meet the increasing demands from both domestic and overseas travellers for larger groups stays to experience the joy of reconnecting over travel, together. These unique homes provide members of Marriott’s award-winning travel program, Marriott Bonvoy, with more options when they travel as a complement to Marriott International’s 29 hotels across 13 different brands in Australia and New Zealand. Several of the homes feature balconies, pools, gourmet kitchens and large entertaining areas that make them the ideal place for gatherings.

It is also the only home rental platform to participate in the Marriott Bonvoy travel program, allowing its 164 million+ members to earn and redeem points for all stays.
