A Villa in the Caribbean

Aug 17, 2007
Tourists now prefer villa accommodations to typical resort or hotel stay for their Caribbean Vacations.
Broadly speaking the 4 reasons for choosing villa accommodations are:

Solitude: villa accommodations are found to be providing more privacy than the hotels or resorts. Couples can enjoy a quixotic getaway. People willing to spend some quality time exclusively with their kith & kin also prefer the villas.

Accommodations: friends & families can be comfortably housed with each having private bedroom & bath at their disposal. As these villas charge by the number of nights spent and not the number of occupants' friends & family members can pool in and pay the rent. And it usually comes cheaper (surprised right?) than luxury hotels or resorts. Moreover some Caribbean hotels don't offer more than 2 bedroom units!

Facilities: Private swimming pools, Jacuzzi's, tennis courts and villa beachfront property are a close second on the list.

Dining: the villas give you the privilege of having your private chef preparing all that you desire to relish! After a day of sightseeing, swimming or lounging at the beach, it's refreshing to have a home cooked meal served upon your return. Many travelers arrange to have the villa stocked upon arrival.

We would advise tourists to visit each Caribbean island as a separate entity to soak up its beauty.

If the must-sees on your list include the beautiful islands, then a villa on the St. Lucia hills or the island of Dominica would fit your bill! If St. Lucia has stunning hillside view by the day, Dominican islands are enthralling by the night. Hillside villas would definitely not offer beachfronts but they have pools as substitute!

Islands of the Barbados, Jamaica & St. Thomas usually provide full-staffed villas including butler, chef, laundress, maid & gardener. These also attract vacationers who are taken by lavish golf courses. The staff employed is trained to cater to the demands of the vacationers to make their stay a terrific experience.

St Barts, St Martins or the Barbados islands should be your ideal destinations if you are looking for exclusive world-class cuisines. The French islands of St Barts & St Martins offer unrivaled French delicacies with over 100 restaurants at your service. Barbados, known for dining par excellence, offers the best selection of diverse menus.

Those searching a luxury getaway should head for the Virgin Gorda or the Tortola, both located on the British Virgin Islands. The villas at Virgin Gorda provide great beach access along with some lucrative boat and diving excursions.

What would be your ideal Caribbean villa vacation?

The options are ample to choose from- be it the spacious 10 roomed villas or the singe room ones or you rent the entire island!! While some provide you with private chefs, some even allow the option of 'dining on your own!'

Villa rentals earlier an indulgence for the wealthy, now is a viable option for many. Most villa owners rope in premier management companies to market their properties. Travel professionals work personally with the management companies to assure each detail is taken care of, and while on the island, management company representatives are always on hand to handle any last minute particulars.
