Style File: Hotel Living
You can get the same first class service any time you want it. In today's Style File, Seven's Belkys Nerey shows us how to enjoy Hotel Living without ever checking out of your home.
WSVN -- Want all seasons to feel like life at the Four Seasons? Or maybe a day of putting on the Ritz? For all you darlings, who want the pampering of a luxury hotel, there's the Villazzo Living Program. It just recently launched in Miami, and it offers the personal service of a five-star hotel in your home.
Christian Jagodzinski, Villazzo President: "We basically offer the full range of hotel services for anybody who wants them, and you use them as much or as little as you need. The beauty of it is you adjust it to whatever service you require."
Say you want to impress friends who are staying for the weekend, you can hire a butler to greet them, unpack their bags and put away their clothes, and, just like in a hotel, there's turn-down service with chocolates on their pillow. Entertainment mogul Michael Capponi has used the service to treat his celebrity guests like royalty.
Michael Capponi: "I'm in the entertainment business, the nightlife business, and, you know, I have some pretty high profile guests that come to my house to stay on the weekends, and come out for holidays in Miami and stuff, so, when they're here, it's like they're at the Four Seasons."
Or maybe it's just for you. From personal chefs to trainers to service by the pool, you can have a day or weekend of pampering.
Michael Capponi: "I love staying in nice five star hotels, so my wife and I can enjoy that some weekends. We'll just pretend we're in a big hotel."
The service is also for those who make South Florida their second home. Villazzo will take care of the house while you're away.
Christian Jagodzinski: "Even if they have a small place here, and they come from time to time, and they want someone to look after things, forward the mail, switch on the lights, flush the toilet."
So you can live in the lap of luxury, or pretend you do, even if it's just for a day.
Belkys Nerey: "So, you wondering how much this hotel living costs? The initial fee is $500 and homeowners can choose from a menu of hotel services. Services are available at hourly, daily and monthly rates."
