It’s a kind of perfect travel harmony—something we endeavor to put our clients in every day.
We believe escaping the routine of everyday life and exposing yourself to new people, cultures and tastes is what makes travel so enriching. But we also know that having an oasis of comfort, security and privacy allows you to immerse yourself in adventure effortlessly—and more impactfully. Our curated collection of villas in some of the world’s most exclusive and enticing locations is the solution.
We know the destinations intimately—the restaurants, the beaches, the hidden gems. We know the villas inside and out—the views from the pool, the quality of the pillows, the layout of the kids’ rooms. And, most importantly, we know our clients—their plans, preferences and pet peeves.
We make you feel at home, far from home. That’s how Nocturne Luxury Villas puts you in perfect harmony with your destination in a way no conventional property ever could.
Inspired by their own wanderlust and desire to provide discerning travelers with something more than the ordinary, entrepreneurs Scott Simmons and Marshall Calder established Nocturne Luxury Villas. Their philosophy is to curate and deliver unparalleled luxury vacations tailored to each guest’s unique desires and preferences.
This ethos has powered every decision from Nocturne’s inception, ensuring that every aspect of service—from property selection to guest experience—would be hallmarked by exclusivity, sophistication and commitment to crafting unforgettable moments.
CEO Scott Wiseman and COO/CFO Carl Colletti ensure Nocturne continues to set the gold standard for premium luxury vacation rentals, promising a sojourn that transcends the ordinary and transforms every getaway into a collection of bespoke memories.
Our carefully vetted and curated villa rentals—the finest in our destinations—deliver outstanding amenities, breathtaking views and inviting floor plans.
From the pre-trip arrival planning to in-destination concierge services and until your bags are reluctantly packed for your trip home, we’re with you, 24/7.
At home, our destination-savvy reservations agents offer their expert advice, and at your vacation spot our concierge team shares their local expertise.
