A. How can I holiday better?

Invest from £5,000 in the Holiday Property Bond for exclusive access to a portfolio of over 1,400 top quality villas, cottages and apartments in over 30 locations across the UK and Europe. For each £1 invested you will receive one Holiday Point each year which you can use to book the properties. And when staying in them you do not pay a commercial rent, just a no-profit user charge covering actual running, maintenance and refurbishment costs. This charge is level throughout the year so there are no high season premiums. For a studio the charge averages about £315 a week, for a two bedroom property around £480 a week. Larger properties are also available. This no-profit user charge is only payable when you want to go on holiday. Your only ongoing commitment is a quarterly fee of just over £30 – that is around £130 a year.

B. Will there be more properties in the future?

As we attract more investors the more properties we will add to the portfolio – increasing your holiday choice still further.

C. How long can I holiday with HPB?

For life if you wish – the holiday benefits last as long as you hold the Bond. In due course you can pass it and the holiday benefits to your children and grandchildren, as many of our earlier investors have already done. If, however, at some point you and your family no longer wish to holiday with us you can surrender your Bond back to the company after two years or more (subject to deferral in exceptional circumstances). You will not get back the full amount you invested, although we would hope that you will have had some wonderful holidays. What you do get back will reflect initial charges (25%) taken before your money is invested in the HPB fund of holiday properties and securities. The fund itself also pays annual charges of around 2.5% and other overheads. The value of the fund’s properties and securities can also go up or down and so, like most investments, your capital is at risk.

La Gomera is the second smallest island of the Canary archipelago, and it is surely one of the most beautiful. Here, set in award-winning botanical gardens, at the top of the island's sun-baked southern cliffs, is the exclusive private resort of El Balcón de Santa Ana, offering a variety of superb holiday villas and apartments.

Not only is this the perfect resort for sun worshippers. It is also a superb base from which to explore the island's charming villages, ports and coves. It is less than a mile west of the small fishing port of Playa Santiago, and 20 miles west of San Sebastian (La Gomera's capital town).

La Gomera offers a wide variety of contrasting landscapes and climates. Of volcanic origin and roughly circular (around 15 miles in diameter), it rises to nearly 5,000 feet at the central peak of Garajonay, where the mountains catch the moisture from the trade wind clouds, creating a jungle climate that is rich and verdant. This contrasts with the warmer sun-baked cliffs and rocky bays at sea level.

The Garajonay National Park is so rich in wildlife that it enjoys UNESCO recognition and protection. Its slopes are criss-crossed by impeccably signposted footpaths, presenting varying levels of challenge to walkers.
