The private accommodations booking platform Airbnb would currently be in negotiations to acquire Luxury Retreats, a Montreal platform specialized in rentals of luxury villas.
Airbnb was beneficiary for the first time on the second semester of 2016 and, since its last fundraising, it has $3.1 billion. Luxury Retreats was created in 2002 by Joe Poulain.
At the age of 17, Joe Poulain created a platform for renting villas called Caribbean Ways, which offered travelers luxury villas in the Caribbean. Its head office is currently located in Montreal, Canada. The website offers nearly 3,000 villas in more than 90 destinations. During its development, the group bought the property manager Fabulous Home in 2006 and the broker Carimo in 2011.
