In 2000, our founder Sylvia Cutting saw real demand for a higher standard of self catering holiday. She saw the potential for property owners to reap greater rewards than ever before. So, with a clear vision in mind, she founded Blue Chip Vacations.
It started small, with a single apartment in Brixham. Sylvia nurtured the property to meet her high standards, focusing on the details she knew would attract a discerning clientele. She advertised Moorings Reach in The Times and guests flocked to enjoy a relaxing, restorative break. They returned year after year, because they couldn’t find the Blue Chip experience anywhere else.
BY 2002, Blue Chip Vacations was managing 80 luxury self catering apartments across Torbay, while expanding the portfolio to include properties in Newquay, eco-lodges in Somerset and prestigious holiday homes at Salcombe Retreats.
BY 2009, Blue Chip Vacations had grown into Blue Chip Holidays, the South West’s leading self catering agency, with a portfolio extending to Dorset and the Isle of Wight.
IN 2014, our portfolio reached 1000 properties, and continued to grow while we expanded into beautiful Yorkshire. We launched Blue Chip Lodges & Resorts, responding to demand for the Blue Chip experience in this exciting fast-growing holiday sector.
Today, over 90% of our property owners recommend our services to other investors. 95% of our guests recommend Blue Chip Holidays to their family and friends. Sylvia was right all along.
