OFF GRID HIDEAWAYS: Discovering the Quiet
Written by Shellwood on 25th August 2017

**A new holiday rental company championing slow and sustainable travel in remote destinations**

Off Grid Hideaways is a new online holiday rental company offering a handpicked collection of remote properties in some of the most beautiful and isolated locations across the world. Chosen for their sustainable and low impact effect on the environment each property’s aesthetics also reflect the desire to showcase high impact design and outstanding architecture.

Split into three categories; Country, Mountain and Sea, these undiscovered getaways include reclaimed fishing huts in ecologically significant nature reserves to contemporary mountain cabins in vast national parks. Whilst often best experienced in the low season, even at peak times guests can feel that they have ‘got away from it all’ and are able to engage in a slower pace of life exploring hiking trails, discovering new off the beaten track villages, kayaking uninhabited coastlines and finding local restaurants that pioneer a local and seasonal approach.

Co-founders Sina Murphy Chan and Flavia Kämpf Spahr were inspired to create Off Grid Hideaways by their own journey – from juggling the demands of a fast-paced career and starting to raise a young family and wanting to follow a more meaningful path incorporating their shared passions of travel, design and yoga:

“We wanted not only to share the incredible places we’ve discovered, but also drive sustainable and lasting change by helping to redefine the concept of ‘luxury’. To us, true luxury is a better quality of
life for all. Fewer possessions, more experiences. Stripping away the noise to find what’s meaningful. By sharing places where nature is front and centre, where the pace of life is slow, we encourage visitors to press pause and truly engage. In turn, this means we can support emerging tourist economies and the communities that serve them through the quieter times.”

Off Grid Hideaways is a fully operational online search and booking platform and encourages interaction with its clients via its social media channels. For more details, inspiration and bookings visit www.offgridhideaways.com or visit @offgridhideaways on Instagram
