Enhanced Vacation Experiences

Consistent Quality Standards

Who is Altez Vacations?

Our Story

There was a better experience needed for homeowners and guests alike in the burgeoning vacation rental industry.With over 30+ years of experience as an executive leader in the hospitality industry, Kara Altice-Montes saw a need in the vacation rental industry. After years of owning her own vacation rental property in Sarasota, Florida, Kara was consistently disappointed with the experience she received with her property management company. Coming from her experience within the luxury hotel industry, Kara knew that there was a better experience needed for homeowners and guests alike in the burgeoning vacation rental industry. As a result, Kara dedicated herself to building the foundations of a company that was to become Altez Vacations, founded on the principles of consistent quality standards and outstanding guest services. Kara soon found that her dedication to an improved guest experience soon led to an increased demand for her properties over the surrounding competition, and a growing list of dedicated travelers. Kara and her team are excited to share their knowledge and expertise with you, to create lasting vacation rental experiences.

Within The Home

From furnishings to decorations, toiletries to cleaning supplies, hand crafted amenities to consumable wares, Altez Vacations is striving to source as many of our “in home” products as possible. We find the products we use throughout our daily lives work just a little bit better if they come from a place of love and passion. Sure, we could source all of our products from the local retail chain, but then our homes wouldn’t be filled with the same unique character and excitement that make our destinations so desirable. Do you like the artwork and music in and around your vacation home? Contact our Altez Vacations team to learn more about our local artisans and how you may support their craft.
