For those passionate about taking to the open road, maybe a holiday in a converted gas station is the perfect home-from-home. Or, for explorers wanting to get away from it all, an old log mill in the mountains could be the ideal retreat. With a line-up of quirky and distinctive holiday rentals, such as petrol stations and log cabins, Curated Collection x Eclectic Escapes by Marriott Bonvoy is part of the brand’s growing line-up, under its Homes & Villas umbrella. Travelers can book one of 130,000+ premium and luxury homes found across the world, including a reimagined gas station in Schulenburg Texas, and a log mill dating back to 1797 in Jonesborough, Tennessee.
The brand specialises in luxury villas large enough for extended families–found in destinations from Orlando, Florida, to Ocho Rios, Jamaica. But, adding a twist to your stay, Homes & Villas by Marriott Bonvoy also offers a range of one-of-a-kind properties in its Curated Collection. Located in Pembrokeshire, Wales, for instance, travelers can sleep in a converted American school bus; while in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, there is a unique Smoky Mountain station cabin. Dating back to 1916, the charming CSX caboose sleeps four in two bedrooms and even has its own ticket booth. The caboose is connected to a replica Euro-inspired train depot that houses the main suite and access to a spa deck.

What can these properties offer that a luxury hotel brand cannot?
We see home rentals continuing to be a desired accommodation choice for travelers, and Homes & Villas by Marriott Bonvoy complements our hotel business by offering more options, across more destinations for our guests.
There are trips where more space, multiple bedrooms and/or remote locations are ideally suited for a home rental. Many of our guests, who are traveling with large groups of friends or family, are looking for a sense of togetherness that a home can provide. Other trip purposes are better suited for hotel stays, like an overnight business trip, a weekend in the city to see the sights or an all-inclusive resort getaway. We’ve seen guests combine their

Even during the height of winter ski season, you can still hear the rhythmic pop of a tennis ball hitting a racquet around Stanglwirt, a decades-old luxury resort in the Austrian Alps near the tony mountain town of Kitzbühel. While Stanglwirt is now known for its laundry list of world-class amenities (including a fantastic wellness program), tennis is in fact what put it on the map. Through tennis management firm Peter Burwash International, Stanglwirt expanded its entire tennis program in the 1970s and 1980s, including building more facilities to accommodate tennis camps—a novelty at the time.
