The vacation properties are the key ingredient to the 21-5 recipe. They are meticulously selected based on our significant experience with finding, purchasing and renovating vacation homes. So far, we have more than 100 beautiful vacation homes under our belt. Sometimes we find a property that is almost move-in ready, but often we come across a diamond-in-the-rough ready for our renovation- and design-teams to roll up their sleeves.

You have probably noticed that most rental vacation properties feel cold and sterile. Not so with the 21-5 homes. They are furnished and decorated to be full of warmth and character. You will immediately feel at home when you arrive.

We are constantly increasing our deep knowledge of all our destinations. We know exactly where the properties should be located and where they shouldn't. We know to assess the cost of the stock, and how to achieve the best deals. 21-5 has built unique competencies around property renovations as it is very rare that we find a home we approve in its current state. For the most part, we have to improve it to meet our standards and quality.

Not only will the homes have the best possible location, you will also enjoy high-quality furnishings, modern living standards, authentic local character and open/bright spaces. Contemporary homes with warmth and soul.

Great respect and care for original details and choice of materials are also essential to create beautiful homes with just the right atmosphere.

Expert property acquisition team

Our expert acquisition team is responsible for identifying and buying the vacation properties on behalf of our owner associations.

The team is also, in unison with our construction team, leading the process of transforming the properties into warm and welcoming vacation homes.  

The acquisition team has been spearheaded by co-founder and CEO Laila Koej since the beginning of 21-5 and has exceptional experience in identifying the right vacation homes around the world, with well over 130 homes so far. All loved by their owners.

Each time we buy a property to one of our owner associations, we have, on average, seen more than 25 various properties. A vast amount of potential homes in the regions where we buy. The insights and experience we’ve gained are of tremendous value to our families. We work tirelessly to build and maintain trusted local realtor relationships who, in return, regularly inform us of attractive acquisition opportunities.

We have learned that by identifying homes which need some degree of renovation, we can create the best results for our 21-5 families. It is with this approach we have brought great value to our owner associations. It requires a unique skillset to deliver on the 21-5 promise of creating 5 beautiful vacation homes to each of our families.
