  • A Shared Vision

    The Hideaways Club was born out of our Founders' own travel experiences, which have really influenced the Club's direction and approach. We can relate to the type of lives our Members lead because they are similar to our own. In a world where work is increasingly more demanding, we value the idea of an investment return being experiential and centred around pleasure, peace of mind and convenience.

    The result is an exclusive community with a shared vision of enjoying the world at its most exceptional.


    The Hideaways Club was co-founded in 2006 by Stephen Wise and Helmut Schön. Stephen, a chartered accountant by background and former Bain & Company Senior Management Consultant, had set up and built a number of businesses before teaming up with his business school friend Helmut.

    Helmut had worked 10 years in EMEA Banking with Merrill Lynch and UBS, before becoming a General Partner in a global early and late stage venture fund.

    Mike Balfour OBE (ex Founder of Fitness First) and John Lovering joined Helmut and Stephen as first Investors into the business, with Mike also being Chairman for the first few years.

  • Ownership without the obligations

    The Founders wanted to be able to choose from a range of private and luxury interior-designed homes in stunning locations around the world. Residences that provided the space, convenience and privacy they required, but with the fundamental extras they appreciate in hotels - fully serviced residences with a first-class Concierge Service, seven days a week.

    They knew what it meant to own a holiday home abroad - great to start with, but then it becomes an onerous obligation - much time-wasting on maintenance and really limiting if there is a desire for diverse travel experiences. Owning a second home can be wonderful in many ways, but with so much of the world to see and discover, it feels a bit of a waste not to go and embrace it, in fabulous style - and at the best time of the year.

  • A Unique Offering

    The offering became clear: guaranteeing the most amazing holiday experience, offering peace of mind, ensuring exceptional quality and service levels with a company that can be relied on and trusted. An investment that provides the smart opportunity to collectively own luxury residences, with like-minded Members and share the running and operational costs.

    And so, The Hideaways Club was created to combine the best of all worlds:

    • Ownership - owning not one, but a collection of residences, for more flexibility and a wider range of experiences.
    • Choice - a diverse collection of luxury homes all around the world.
    • Hassle-free luxury - property management and seven-day Concierge Service as standard.

  • Endless Travel Opportunities

    Now an established, award-winning Property Investment Fund, you are invited to discover the very best in luxury travel and the opportunity to invest in some of the finest property located across the globe.

    Whether you desire relaxation and seclusion, or the excitement of a cosmopolitan city break, our residences give you complete freedom to explore.
