About us

This website is owned and managed my Maison Prive Holiday Home Rentals LLC.

MaisonPrive is an innovative approach to property management, enabling owners to optimise the revenue generation potential of their properties. MaisonPrive properties are typically used only as holiday homes. They are not the personal residences of the owners, ensuring that guests have their own space and services for an enjoyable, hassle-free stay. We are the home of privacy.

The growth in demand for short-term accommodation in Dubai, coupled with the emergence of globally recognized distribution platforms such as Airbnb, has created the opportunity to operate a virtual hotel anywhere.

MaisonPrive is a virtual hotel brand offering high standards of accommodation and service focused on corporate visitors and discerning tourists.

MaisonPrive gives owners the ability to earn up to 50% more revenue from their properties without the hassle of managing guests.

We hand-pick luxury properties in the best locations in Dubai for our guests and support them with our extensive services.
