Escape your world with WorldEscape



WorldEscape gives travellers something a little different from the average four hotel walls, your own place in your favourite city giving you a whole lot more for your next stay.


Booking accommodation is as easy as ABC or even 1,2,3. Three clicks of your mouse and you have reserved a lovely place to stay. All properties are a whole heap bigger and a whole lot better than any hotel room.


When visiting any city one hates being classed as a tourist so each of our recommended properties come with a great information pack, an A-Z of the best  local places to eat, drink and visit and it’s written by the owner of each property who know the area like the back of their hand and it offers advice on all the local attractions and distractions and if just in case there is something not covered we are here 24/7 to answer any questions or deal with any problems should they arise.


It all began back in the year 2000. 


When our founding partners, sister and brother Emmett and Deirdre Brady decided to sell their law firm and Escape to Amsterdam, little did they know what the future held.

Back in May 2000, the internet was fairly new and no one really knew how big it was going to get Yahoo, Lycos and Looksmart were the main search engines and Google were just getting going.

They bought a house comprising several apartments on one of the lovely Amsterdam canals and decided to invite guests to come to Escape as well for a few days. 


Within 2 days they were top of Yahoo for the search term Amsterdam apartments and the enquiries started rolling in. They bought the domain AmsterdamEscape.com and the business went from strength to strength so much so they decided to buy further buildings and expand the business.


In 2002 Giuseppe Urso joined the team and decided to expand the online business, within two years WorldEscape was launched along with many other city sites like RomeEscape, LondonEscape and others and they really were a real alternative to the overpriced hotels in each city they operated in.


Escape ‘Unique Accommodation’ & ‘’Hotel Alternative’’

WorldEscape gives everyone the chance to stay in a different way – Nothing like having somewhere like home to come back to after a day out sightseeing, shopping or if staying on business, a place to unwind after a busy day in the office.


You get to live a life just like a real local would, cook meals, do your washing, chill out on a comfy sofa, enjoy fast complimentary broadband and generally live the life and not like a tourist.  You get the best of both worlds, nobody bothering you with early morning bang on the door “room service”.


The WorldEscape team have searched each city high and low for the best of the best places for our guests to stay in and have gotten together a collection of some quirky, cosy and wonderful places, everyone being different to one another but all offering fantastic levels of comfort.
