  • A week in paradise

    "We just returned from a week at Elkadia. We were six... myself, my 15 year-old daughter, my 25 year-old son, his girlfriend, and my 2 parents (age 81 & 82). The house was perfect for us. From coffee in the morning right above the ocean, looking out at the fishing boats and keeping an eye out for dolphins (yes, we saw them cavorting one night), to dinners on the veranda, and evening games in the living room, it was the perfect place to enjoy Bonaire. We were 3 divers and 3 snorkelers. The divers enjoyed the rinse tank and the spot for airing out gear, and the snorkelers enjoyed the snorkeling right off the back of the house (a short ladder led down to the clear blue water). The kitchen worked well and had all the necessary equipment for all our meal preparations. The bedrooms were all air-conditioned, each with an adjoining bathroom. It really is a piece of paradise!"

  • Wouldn't Stay Anywhere Else!

    "Traveled to Sosua with a few friends. Very impressed with the villa. The maid staff was excellent and Alex was always available to address any or our concerns. Our rental vehicle caught a flat and with one call to Alex it was fixed in no time. You the man Alex! Had a blast and will be back soon! Thanks for the great hospitality! Mike, Will, Tremayne, and Keith"

  • Very clean, nice location, easy to get around and navigate

    "I couldn't decide between three stars or four because the home was very nice but we just felt the description was off. First off, the house was very clean. It was fully stocked with everything we needed. The escort met us at the rental car desk and was very helpful. The thing we didn't like was that the two king bedrooms on the lower level are completely separate from the rest of the house. They have sliding glass doors with separate locks and an outside entrance. They are almost like two separate mini apartments. I do not feel the description of the home explains this well enough. We traveled with young children and did not feel comfortable leaving them sleeping downstairs in the evening while we sat up at the pool. Our only option would have been to lock the kids in from the outside - meaning they couldn't open the door to get out if they needed something. For one of the rooms we brought a baby monitor but the monitor did not work well upstairs. Also, it was just a nuisance to always have to be searching for or holding onto a key. We were warned to keep the rooms downstairs locked when we were upstairs so we were always having to keep track of keys even when we were "home". Second, the beach is all rocks and shells. Doug was open about saying that it was not a beach for young children but I thought it would be softer than it was. We really didn't use the beach at all except to kayak once or twice and went to the other sandy beaches. If we could do it over again I wouldn't bother to pay for a house on or near the beach and would just rely on a pool. Although, the view was beautiful. The house was very clean and it was close to Red Hook with restaurants and food shopping nearby. The island itself is very easy to navigate by car. We sent a shopping list in advance and had most of our food shopping done for us which worked out quite nicely. We did enjoy eating most meals outside and we spent the majority of our time around the pool when we weren't at an off-site beach. We rarely turned on the TV and enjoyed the beautiful weather."

  • We loved Water's Edge!

    "We loved it! The house was beautiful and very private. My husband and I went with another couple and there was more than enough room (it could fit a lot more people)! The beach right down the street from the house was gorgeous. Very clean and a perfect getaway!"

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.
