Our company was born organically from the needs of ultra-luxury travelers and high-end homeowners. Since inception, we have invested in a select portfolio of our own exceptional properties and partnered with other homeowners to bring first-rate experiences to our guests.

We accompany guests as you would treat visiting family to make sure every stay is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. That each birthday, proposal, anniversary or special celebration our guests share with us is unforgettable.

We’re not just a company, we’re a travel and lifestyle community.

Executive Team

Larry Mueller

Founder and Chief Executive Officer

For over twenty years, Larry has designed, restored, built and managed ultra-luxury homes around the world. His experience in the real estate market inspired him to found Cuvée as a premium, high-touch property management and rental company with a private equity structure.

Prior to Cuvée, Larry was the President and CEO of Ariba, a publicly-held software company in California. He led Ariba Technologies as it hit a market cap of over $40 billion within two years of its public offering. Larry was also the CEO at Imageware Corporation (sold to Electronic Data Systems) and managed the IBM European software business in Paris during his 16-year storied tenure with IBM.
