HomeAway, a popular online vacation rental marketplace, has just announced the expansion of a new luxury vacation home rental website. Curated by the luxury travel experts at Andrew Harper, the website offers more than 4,500 luxury rentals in more than 40 countries on every continent except Antarctica.

According to Brian Sharples, CEO of HomeAway, “The quick growth in listings and traveler demand for Luxury Rentals from HomeAway shows the strength of the luxury market and the need for an ultimate resource in truly exceptional vacation accommodations. As the vacation rental industry continues to grow, we are dedicated to creating curated collections to make it even easier for travelers to find exactly what they are looking for anywhere in the world.”

The 4,500 luxury vacation rentals on the HomeAway luxury vacation site reflect less than 1% of the 1 million live listings on the main HomeAway site. Daily rates of these properties average $1,800 per night. All of the properties go through a 75-point luxury screening process that includes price, services, amenities, and more. The homes tend to be large and spacious, as you'll see in some of the examples below. Nearly half of the listings on Luxury Rentals from HomeAway have five or more bedrooms, whereas on HomeAway.com the houses have three bedrooms on average.

Here are some examples of the properties currently listed on the site:
