  • Private paradise indeed!

    "My boyfriend and I just returned from a week at the villa and we had a fantastic time. From the first interaction, the whole process was simple and easy: the contract, making the payment online in USD, they provided a travel kit of information on things to do and see, places to eat, maps, etc. The view is stunning, and though there is a main road that you can see from the patio, it really doesn't affect the privacy at all. It was easy to get to anywhere on the island from there within 30 minutes. The pool/patio area was maintained on the days that we were out of the villa midday, which was perfect. There were lots of animals around which we took the opportunity to feed while we were there: a dog, a couple of cats and a monkey! I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone. Thanks, Janet!"

  • A Great Experience!!

    "We stayed at the Peaceful Cottages in the end of October and found it to be a wonderful experience. Our cottage was the smaller one and it was just right for the two of us. It was comfortable and we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We took advantage of the outside grill and cooked most of our own meals. It was very relaxing to sit on the porch surrounded by rain forest plants and wild life. I particularly enjoyed the night sounds of the chorus of frogs that lull you to sleep at night. We also enjoyed playing with Jackie, the sweet Jack Russell terrier. We used the four-wheel drive jeep and it was perfect for the roads there. It was no problem adjusting to driving on the left side. Trevor was able to give a lot of good advice about places to go and things to do. It was our first time being in Saint John and we would like to go back and stay there again. We highly recommend it."

  • Wonderful week at Cooten House....

    "My wife and I stayed at Cooten House in December for a week and loved it. The house is perfect for a couple to get away. It is secluded enough but close to Roadtown to be convenient. We used the hot tub all but one evening and it was a highlight of the house. There is a great Bose sound system which we also used a lot. Jeremy also has a phone at the house for local calls and even told us we could use it if we needed to call home. We only used it for a few local calls but nice to know it was there. The Wi-Fi was great and super reliable. The views are amazing from the house. Our favorite beach to visit was Josiah's Bay which you can see from the house. We rented 2 lounge chairs for $10, they had a bar and restaurant, and I took surf lessons which was a lot of fun. We met Jeremy at Riteway in Roadtown and he took us to the house. The last part of the road to the house is bumpy but not a big deal. I have driven in the US Virgin Islands and found the driving on Tortola very comparable. He was very helpful as was Marija before and during our stay. We would not hesitate to stay here again. A couple of things that we suggested to Jeremy before we left were some updated nicer beach chairs, (the two supplied were in bad shape and very uncomfortable), a blender (we love tropical frozen drinks and missed this small feature), and a safe (we were told it was on the to do list) for passports, cash, and valuables. Bug spray is a must. Mosquitos are an ever present issue in the tropics, not just Tortola and Cooten House. Not a negative at all, just a reminder to bring it and use it and you will be fine. Overall this was a wonderful trip and we highly recommend the Cooten House!!"

  • Beautiful Mahogany Run

    "The view from this apartment was stunning. The apartment was very well equipped and the owner was very helpful in providing information prior to our stay. The apartment was clean and beautifully decorated. I know the area very well, but you do need a car if you want to go to the beaches and other attractions. I rented a car and had no problem driving on the left. If you play golf, this is a must. If you like to walk or run there are many areas within Mahogany Run where you can do that, and there is also a swimming pool. You can eat at the restaurant at the Golf Club, but if you want to go to other restaurants in St. Thomas you will need transportation. I would highly recommend this apartment and would stay there again."

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.
