  • Excellent all around!

    "My wife and I loved our stay at the suite. The suite is extremely large, clean and luxurious. We enjoyed the large balcony with a couch and hammock. Restaurants, bars, the ocean and pools were a short walk away. The suite was plenty big for two- we had two bathrooms, a kitchen area and large jacuzzi tub. Simply a great space at a great property."

  • Best Experience Ever!

    "My husband, myself and our 2 boys(5 & 2 1/2) stayed at Hummingbird's SEAcret for 10 days in February 2014. In the past we have rented three other homes on the island (never before in one of Lisa's management homes). While all of them were very nice, Hummingbird was hands down the best experence. Kate (Lisa's helper) picked us up at the ferry dock. She was so warm and welcoming, full of great information, and when we arrived at the house we were greeted with crackers, cheese, beer and wine. After traveling 10 long hours w/2 small children, we were beyond thrilled! From then on it just kept getting better. The house was perfect. The open, single building, ranch style allowed us to lounge by the pool while the kids watched cartoons or played in the pool. Speaking of the pool, it was perfect; heated and clean with outstanding views! You'd think in such a warm place you wouldn't need a heated pool. However when your kids want you to go in with them 1st thing in the a.m. and the last thing before bed, the heat makes it so much more enjoyable. The location was great, close to town and grocery store. Also, unlike other homes we've rented we never once had to use air conditioning, the house was always airy comfortable. We rented strollers and took walks every morning which turned out to be a highlight of the trip for both my husband and I. The roads were paved and the hills were steep and there were continuous breathtaking views. The house was clean, bright, and stocked with all the little things you need a bit of but you can only purchase in large quantity...coffee filters, dishwasher detergent, dish soap, sponges etc...to sum it up: we will use Lisa's co. from now on, and we can't wait to go back to HUMMINGBIRD'S SEAcret!"

  • Better than the pictures!

    "We have used VRBO many times. Sometimes you don't quite get what you were expecting. However, this place was the real deal. Awesome views, crystal clear pool, cold A/C, clean comfy house and an amazing palapa on the lagoon. We had coffee on the balcony every morning and fished from the dock every night. Dolphins and manatees cruised by but we never saw the famous Croc. Dan was helpful and easy to work with. We couldn't have asked for a better spot to spend a week. There are many beaches, bars and restaurants within a 15 minute walk. Maya Bistro and Mango's were by far the best. We decided to rent a golf cart and it came in quite handy. We cruised the entire peninsula in slow motion and it was so relaxing. The roads felt very safe. We were able to enjoy some of the Placencia night life without always having to call a taxi. The only problem we had was booking tours. The giude that was recommended (Alrin) was a complete joke. We'd book a fishing trip with him, he'd call at the lat minute to cancel and leave us hanging with no other options. We would run across the street to The Green Parrot and Leo would squeeze us on a trip or tour last minute. I'd recommend leaving Alrin out of the picture and just let Leo set things up for you. Alrin acually had the nerve to call me for the third day in a row, yell at me and cancel again. I know we had a few windy days that weren't good for reef fishing, but he could have taken us fishing on the lagoon or to the Monkey River. We ended up having his brother Efar take us on the Monkey River tour and I think that really pissed him off. But hey, I'm not going to force you to take my money... there are plenty of other awesome guides that work hard to please their clients. Even though we never got to fish on the reef, the trip was a great success. The snorkeling out there was phenomenal. Go slow and enjoy!"

  • Excellent condo...excellent location!

    "This is our 5th trip to Provo and we have stayed at several properties over the years and was not disappointed by this condo. It was well taken care of...pride of ownership shows here and it was much nicer than the pictures denote. Updated and personal touches so it felt like a home. You can't beat the view and all of the staff is so wonderful. Flo gave me flowers several times for the condo and just to see her smile every day was worth the trip!! Cecelia took good care of us, as well as Jerome on the beach. Office staff always very pleasant and helpful. You need a car on the Island if you want to savor all it has to offer. Snorkeling is right there at Coral Gardens, as well as "Somewhere" to eat, which is very convenient. This is probably the narrowest beach area however, as you lose alot of beach at high tide. Would definitely go back again...just have to save my pennies as to stay on Grace Bay Beach is a bit pricey. Great condo."

Caribbean Travel Tips

The Caribbean Sea and its islands are full of splendor and magic. Also known as the West Indies, the Caribbean has long been a popular destination for honeymooners as well as retirees looking for a getaway. There’s almost always good weather in the Caribbean, and its close proximity to the U.S. makes it an affordable and easy place to visit.

The Caribbean At a glance

Cayman Islands

The Cayman Islands are surrounded by coral reefs and the bluest of waters. There are three islands to choose from, which are full of marine life. Not only can you swim with stingrays, but you can go diving with the most colorful fish that you’d only imagine existed in your dreams. The white sand beaches are postcard-perfect and include Seven Mile Beach, Rum Point and Point of Sand. Here, you can enjoy isolated lands and even pink sand at Point of Sand. If you want, you can choose from more than 200 scuba diving sites or hit the pier for a day of fishing. Looking for things to do outside of sitting on the beach all day? Take a tour of George Town, the capital city of the islands. You can also visit the Cayman Islands National Museum and learn more about the country’s culture. After a day full of fun, grab a meal at a local eatery and enjoy freshly caught fish or sit down for a sophisticated meal at an upscale restaurant. You can get a real taste of island cuisine with a bowl of conch chowder, which is a tomato-based soup comprised of sweet peppers, onions and salt pork or bacon.

Trinidad and Tobago

Trinidad and Tobago is one of the Caribbean’s most industrialized nations, and is also one of the most crowded due to tourists visiting the islands. You’ll find Hindustanis, Javanese, Lebanese, Africans and Creoles in Trinidad, while Tobago is more quiet and unspoiled. You haven’t done anything in Trinidad and Tobago until you’ve visited Maracas Bay and Turtle Beach. The beach didn’t get its name out of the blue, sunbathers enjoy sharing the sand with giant leatherback turtles and Maracas Bay offers clear waters near the capital.

Puerto Rico

Despite its smaller size, Puerto Rico is full of life and beauty. There are 4 million people that call the island home, and they are more than welcoming to visitors. You’ll find so much to do in Puerto Rico, including mountain hiking, a trip into rainforests and plenty of sun on its white sandy beaches. Since the island’s history dates back 500 years when it was still under Spanish rule, there’s plenty of history and museums to take in. In San Juan, you can visit three world-class museums before heading out for a night of shopping, dining and nightlife. Restaurants are plentiful in Puerto Rico, where you can enjoy stuffed crabs and chip-chip, a dish of clam-like shellfish with vegetables or ground meat. You should also try the fresh rum punch, which is flavored with locally produced Angostura Bitters.

Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic has the pleasure of enjoying a year-round summer. There are white beaches, crystal clear waters and Spanish colonial history that dates back 500 years. With a visit here, you may find yourself hanging out with locals and backpackers from small fishing villages. The most popular destination in the Dominican is Punta Cana, where you can enjoy a plethora of sunshine. If you want to go for a dive, head to Bayahibe for a great view of shipwrecks just beneath the water’s surface. You’ll find some of the world’s finest cigars in the region near Santiago, as well as a good bottle of rum. Harrison’s in Puerto Plata has jewelry, and there are plenty of art galleries in Altos de Chavon. Grab a seat at Santo Domingo for fresh rock lobster or braised red snapper, or head to Puerto Plata for all the crayfish and grilled shrimp kabobs your stomach can handle.

Jamaica

There's more to Jamaica than just reggae and Rastafarians. It’s full of white sandy beaches and year-round sunshine, mountains, rainforest and coffee, as well as friendly locals. Of course, there’s diving and snorkelling that will take your through coral reefs, garden grottoes and drop-offs. You can even go for a leisurely swim at Doctor’s Cave Beach or overlook Montego Bay on the hilltop at Rose Hall Great House. Don’t leave the island without a package of Blue Mountain coffee or Jamaican rum. Visitors can find colorful artwork at the Contemporary Art Centre in Kingston or head to the Craft Market in Negril for handmade items. There’s also the Things Jamaican outlet with several locations throughout the island, including Montego Bay and Harmony Hall.
