In 2007, the luxury vacation-rental industry was dominated by 40 destination clubs charging six-figure membership fees and offering vacation villas and homes for the jet set.
But then the recession hit. Companies folded, memberships dropped and the industry shrank.

Geronimo is built on the idea that play is good for the economy.
