  • Best views on Tortola!

    "My husband and I just returned from Tortola after spending a week with two other couples at Taino. We arrived at Taino at night and so when we awoke and witnessed the views in the morning, we were all blown away. It was the most breathtaking view of Jost Van Dyke, Sandy Cay and Sandy Spit beyond the infinity pool. Three of the mornings we awoke to double rainbows due to the light morning showers. The villa was beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, and well stocked. The trade winds provided a nice breeze which kept us cool as we slept in the comfortable beds. Sam and JC were very attentive to our needs, even meeting our grocery delivery person at the villa prior to our arrival so we could unwind with some cold Caribs from our long trip. I highly recommend Taino!"

  • Awesome location and beautiful view!

    "The location of this unit is great! The beach is just a few steps from the back door and the view from the unit is wonderful. We came to St. Croix to relax and that is what we did. We sat on the back porch morning and evening. We also had a couples massage right on the back porch while listening to the waves. The snorkeling right out in front of unit is the best we found! There are so many different types of fish that you feel like you are in an aquarium. We snorkeled for 3 hours one day and only stopped because of exhaustion. The unit is close to several local bar/restaurants and only a 30-40 minute drive from the north shore and Christiansted. The beach was a little busy on the day the cruise ship docked but still wasn't overly crowded. We agree with other reviewers that the unit needs some updates. The sliding door wouldn't lock. The bed could be more comfortable and the internet was really slow. The shower window needs to be replaced to decrease road noise. There was some mold in the shower but not horrible. We had no trouble with check in or check out. We would stay here again. The last night we were there, someone was staying in the unit beside us. It was kind of loud. I may not have enjoyed the stay as much if they had been there the whole time."

  • Paradise!

    "Our first trip to St. John was simply AWESOME, and made much more so by our stay at Drake's View. Aptly named, the views from this magnificent home tucked into the side of Bordeaux Mountain were spectacular, and the plush accommodations and private surroundings of this incredible find were more than we expected. From the island's various hiking trails, numerous choices of aquamarine bays with beautiful beaches and incredible snorkeling...to Drake's View's fabulous landscaped pool and hot tub, spacious living environment, and sleeping to the open-windowed breezes off Coral Bay, this was truly "a little bit of paradise". For family gatherings, groups of friends, Drake's View and St. John has it all. We would return in a heartbeat, and very much look forward to planning our next trip down."

  • Nice house with a great layout for families.

    "We really enjoyed our week here. We were 4 couples traveling together. We did have an issue with the Wi-Fi router crapping out on us. The good news is that Clifton was there the next day and got it replaced for us. This is a high end property without a doubt, but it is starting to show its age a bit. The Tierra Del Sol community is the best on the Island for sure, no worries there. Pros: -Good sized pool with a large patio/deck area. It supplies good shade when needed. -The open kitchen and great room is perfect for 8 people. -There was enough chairs inside and out for all of us. -There is great closet/storage area upstairs and down. -Clifton was there to care of any needs we had. Cons: -The lounge chairs by the pool need to be replaced. You sit against the steel bars. -The layout is NOT ideal for 4 couples. Only two of the bedrooms have ensuites. The other two rooms must share a bathroom. -Most of the bedrooms do not have blinds/curtains, so you are up with the chickens. -The interior could use a coat of paint, especially the doors and trim. But not a big deal. Overall Joe and Clifton were very good to deal with and very efficient. It was a good experience."

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.
