Here’s Why We Make Regular Inspections of our Luxury Villas

To be certain our properties match our exceedingly high standards, Villas by Journey Mexico regularly conducts site inspections. These involve a member of our team taking a tour of a property and grilling the villa manager or owner on any questions we may have about the accommodation.

So you can understand more about why feel these inspections are so important, here are four benefits of conducting a site inspection.

4 Benefits of Conducting Site Inspections

To inspect the property

The principal reason for conducting any villa inspection is to make sure everything in the accommodation meets our very high standards. We make sure that everything works, that it’s clean, and that it’s safe. We check high and low. We make sure the doors don’t squeak, the gas flows, and the air conditioning keeps the property cool.

If we see something we’re not happy with, or something we think can be improved, we let the villa manager know.


To check security measures

Checking safety and security is a vital part of our inspections. Many of our villas are nestled within highly secure gated communities with 24-hour security, CCTV, and walking patrols. But it’s important for us to see security in action and to make sure it’s working as it should be.

To meet the villa managers/owners

A site inspection is also about getting to know the villa managers and property owners face-to-face. We’re lucky enough to live and work near many of the properties in our portfolio, which means, unlike multi-country brands, we can develop close relationships with our partners.

Building these close relationships mean we can access hard-to-get dates and exclusive benefits that others simply can’t. It also means our guests receive the very best service from individuals we personally know and trust.


To explore the surrounding areas

It’s important for us to be on the pulse of Mexico’s luxury travel industry. We need to know the best new bars, restaurants, and activities so that when our guests ask us to book them in to “the best restaurant in town” we know where to go.

For that reason, our site inspections also involve exploring the nearby area. Taking note of what’s just opened up, what’s moved, and what exciting new developments are underway.
