The ‘Character’ of Commendable Rentals

Commendable Rentals is the place for great vacations.

Commendable Rentals was created by people who have lived and travelled widely in many countries, cherishing artful homes and furnishings in historic environments and beautiful settings. They seek to offer something special to those who share their tastes, and who seek both culture and adventure. Susan Doull, after creating and running an elegant château-hotel in France, lived in Rome and in an Italian medieval hilltop village and chose to share these experiences with others.

Commendable Rentals seeks properties with character, each unique, with its own history and its own personality.

The owners of these properties see their homes as far more than a simple asset; their emotional investment in their homes is expressed in their care and attention to detail. In many cases the property will have been in the family’s possession for centuries. Every property has been carefully vetted, and while the prices vary, important standards are maintained throughout the portfolio. In each you will feel an honored Guest. Thus, unlike so many large and small “channel” websites, we only include properties that not only do we actually know, but we actually like.

Boutique Hotels and Lodges – Commendable Rentals sees hotels as complementary to rental properties. From personal experience, Commendable Rentals recommends a limited number of ​characterful ​lodges and boutique hotels in the countries where it has properties.

Commendable Travel– With decades of experience of travel to Southern Africa, Commendable Rentals LLC organises and guides small groups (8-12 participants) in travel to Southern and East Africa​, and arranges fascinating journeys for independent travelers​. These provide our guests with an experience of the countries that goes beyond their natural attractions, and which allow for a greater understanding of the historical and cultural realities. A notable feature ​of the guided tours ​are the interesting local nationals who join our groups for informal discussions.
