Our Philosophy

Do Everything With Love

Our philosophy starts with you. We begin by thinking about every detail for your stay with love and appreciation, whether we get to share your journey for a couple of days, a few months, or something longer. Then, we curate the look and feel of each unique home to celebrate culture while keeping critical amenities at your fingertips. We offer insights and tips from real locals to help you settle in and really live in the truest sense.

As we bring it to life, we let the love ripple into the rest of the process. We work with responsible developers and source our goods and services with sustainability top of mind. When it’s time to design and decorate, we turn first to local artists and creators, supporting vibrant local economies and community roots. And where we can, we highlight social causes and consider how to continue serving in an ongoing way. It’s about paying it forward while giving back.

Doing good and doing well aren’t that hard; we just do everything with love. And we can’t wait for you to feel it for yourself.

Our History

Organic Growth

Great Dwellings started with our founder's desire to start an Airbnb to bring in supplemental income which would allow him more time to be a father instead of working overtime just to make ends meet.  One unit turned to two. Two became more. After seeing the joy it brought him and the great experience his guests had, his friend and family encouraged him to offer it as a service. And now his amazing team has helped make it a reality.

Our Passion

Love is at the core of all we do

From short-term vacation rentals that offer authentic, locally-inspired experiences to longer-term co-living properties, we curate each property, each experience, and each interaction through a simple lens: how can we do well? What would we do for our family? And that’s what we do.
