Long stay rentals in Thailand
Thailand is Southeast Asia’s most visited country for a reason. Perhaps owing to its popularity as a gap-year destination, holidaymakers in their millions travel to the small country, often with preconceived ideas. As a long stay holidaymaker, discover for yourself Thailand's diversity: explore its golden beaches, serene islands, and delicious cuisine, as well as its fascinating history. Explore ornate temples and intricately carved caves, or visit a spirtual retreat. Enjoy the contrast between the bustling Bangkok and Pattaya and the tranquil Ko Samui and Ko Lipe.

Long stay rentals in New Zealand
New Zealand is another country people have found it easy to stereotype. The landscape is iconic, but a long stay rental in the country means you can really discover New Zealand. The South Island attracts adrenaline-seekers and Queensland is ideal for city-dwellers not ready to leave urban life completely. Mountain hiking, black water rafting and abseiling are a few of the activities you can perfect on a long stay holiday. However, New Zealand also has a distinctive café culture, full of friendly natives: explore the bars and restaurants of Auckland and Wellington.

Long stay rentals in Greece
Consider an extended rental in Greece a chance to retrace the country's astonishing ancient culture, and explore its mountainous landscape and unspoiled beaches. Learning Greek, socialising with locals and embracing cultural customs become more acheivable on a long stay break in central Macedonia or Epirus. Enjoy the medieval past of Rhodes, and visit the stunning island of Crete, with its rugged coastline and mouthwatering cuisine. And, of course, visit the Acropolis in Athens - the birthplace of Greek, and arguably all of western, civilisation.
