  • Don't Stay Any Other Place!

    "Just returned home after a fantastic holiday stay in Brenda's condo with our family. After exploring much of the island it was uniformly agreed that there is no better place we could have booked our vacation. The resort is in the process of adding gym, spa and restaurant facilities on site and if we were in the position to consider owning a piece of paradise the Grand Caribe would be first choice. The unit is exactly as described with beautiful views of the Caribbean from the master bedroom, a well stocked kitchen and plenty of space for the 5 of us (with one person on the pull out couch - typically (un)comfortable). The resort is the perfect distance from San Pedro and we even walked into town a couple of times (a 45 minute walk) instead of using the water taxi or golf cart. The staff was helpful and friendly at all times and go out of their way to assist in carrying groceries or making reservations. But it does seem that all of the islanders share this welcoming attitude. You can not pass anyone without getting a wave or "hello". The food was uniformly wonderful everywhere we ate although Aji right next door to Grand Caribe is beautiful amidst the palms and twinkling lights. And Melt Café for breakfast has great huevos rancheros."

  • Amazing views and a great place to stay

    "We stayed at Andante for a week in August 2014 and had a wonderful time. Amazing views from all rooms and the double tiered deck. The home was incredibly well stocked - everything from the kitchen to snorkeling equipment, beach chairs and coolers. The Villa was one of the major reasons why we had a wonderful family vacation with our daughters aged 22, 20 and 18."

  • Just perfect

    "Awesome vacation for all. So much to do, we seriously weren't going to come home. The condo has everything we needed and was perfect for us. We dove everyday with Red Sail Sports, they are great, too. We swan with dolphins, fed the stingrays at Stingray City and explored all the nooks and crannies on the island. Jackie is excellent to deal with, I would recommend this spot and I hope to be back soon. Mike from Marlboro, Ma"

Netherlands Antilles Travel Tips

Best Time of Year to Visit Netherlands Antilles Vacation Rentals

The Netherlands Antilles are a group of islands located in the Caribbean. They enjoy a year-round warm tropical climate where the season is defined by the the amount of rain rather than the temperatures. There is little different between summer and winter except that in the summer months, there are higher levels of humidity and greater amounts of rainfall. Late summer is when tropical storms can blow through and this is therefore the low travel season. At other times of year, the islands enjoy a warm climate. The peak travel season is from December to April which coincides with the dry season. This conveniently coincides with the winter season of the northern hemisphere and is a welcome excuse for travelers from the United States, Canada and Europe to escape from the chilly winter temperatures back home.

Traveling to the Netherlands Antilles Villas

The Netherlands Antilles are made up of several islands. Each has its own international airport and good flight connections. Curacao, St. Maarten, Saba, Bonaire and St. Eustatius are the five islands. The airports on Curacao, St. Maarten and Bonaire are equipped to handle long-haul international flights and there are regular commercial arrivals from Amsterdam, Miami, Atlanta, New York City and Caracus in South America. The other islands have shorter runways which can accommodate smaller commercial aircraft. When traveling to one of the smaller islands, you can get regional flight connections. There are also ferry connections between St. Maarten and Saba that operate on a weekly basis.
