Destination Clubs – Sustainability for the Ultra-Wealthy?

| Tuesday February 14th, 2006 | 2 Comments

dest_club.jpgFor the ultra-wealthy, owning a number of vacation homes scattered around the globe is a standard perk (say what you will about it). But, given that many of these homes sit vacant for much of the year (or more) their impact on environmental sustainability, not to mention the buyer’s pocketbook, is decidedly unsatisfying.
Enter the “destination club” concept. Much like the “car-sharing” services available to urban mortals, destination clubs offer all the perks of ownership at a fraction of the price because the homes are shared with other, very wealthy clients. It’s a little like a time-share, but more expensive and more exlusive. It’s also just common sense. Granted, it’s still an indulgance that average folks will never enjoy, and which is typically not ecologically sound, but any improvement in efficiency is a good thing in my book. The Helium Report has more.

    Unlike timeshare, which destination clubs are not, the member does not own the real estate, the club does.

    “The Players Club by TTT” is the destination club without rival. Whereas traditional destination clubs own or lease the properties they make available to their members (limiting their members to the properties in their club’s portfolio), “The Players Club” arranges fully vetted luxury rentals worldwide and a full array of concierge services to arrange whatever your heart desires.
