  • Relax and let Rainbow Point do the rest

    "We had a wonderful time, our normal group is 10 adults, this time is was only 5 of us, I was looking for something in Tb area and came across Rainbow Point, I contacted the owner and had a response in a few minutes, booked via email, very easy. Now on to our stay, we arrived about 230pm The grounds were clean and inviting, Miss Jennisfer & Miss Medita & Raneil were there to greet us with warm welcoming smiles. As we entered the home you look through to the varanda and all you see is OCEAN!! So beautiful we spent most of our time by the pool or on the veranda just looking at the waves and the fisherman on the beach. The waves would rock you to sleep at night and the fresh air would wake you in the morning. Joshua's hands are gold, very pleasent and very respectful. The pool was clean and cool (one of the few deeper pools)and the view is amazing. Jack Sprats is a few minuts drive and the people very friendly and food was delish. I can not say enough good things about the people, the food Rainbow Point,TB Billys Bay, they are the heart and soul of the country and we will be back soon :) Oh and Aman, thank you again for taking our friends home, and appleton, it was nice to not have to be the driver and to be able to relax and enjoy the tour(another must appletons)"

  • A most treasured vacation.

    "Emi, Thank you, I had a wonderful time. Your unit is beautiful. Family members that rented 3 other units were in awe over your unit, the size of the TV and the complete stove with an oven. We returned home with many great memories."

  • Perfect!

    "The condo is exactly as described. Great setting and very private. Everything you need is there and were it should be. For us it was close to activities like the Dolphin Swim and Ride out to StingRay City. Barkers beach is right down the road and has miles of secluded beachfront and perfect warm water lagoon for swimming and snorkeling. There is even a horseback riding concession that takes you out into the water right there on the beach. We are kiteboarders and this location allowed us to jump in the van and go to Barkers and ride for a while and be back for lunch in a matter of minutes. Barkers may be the best location in the Caribbean to kite! We went to the restaurant across the street twice and had some of the best food ever! Its also close to a few more great restaurants like The Calypso Grill and Alfrescos. Fosters, a full service grocery store, is about 10 min away where you can stock up on everything you could possibly need for your stay. Dee the owner was so easy to work with and communicates quickly and answered all our questions. The place was very very clean and even provides beach towels and a cooler to make the stay more enjoyable. If you want shopping and nightlife its a 15 min drive to all the action on 7 mile beach. If you want the hustle and bustle of the Georgetown and tourist areas this is not the place for you. If you want to really relax and enjoy the perfect climate and scenery then it does not get much better than this!! A few days we had the pool to ourselves with just a few folks coming and going. Loved our stay and would recommend it to friends and family alike!!!!!!!!!!!"

  • Excellent vacation!

    "Marvelous home, with a million dollar view. excellent amenities, and spacious rooms. the covered porch with the views of Charlotte Amalie, the cruise ship harbor and the islands out to sea. the kitchen is very well appointed, and the availibity of on-site laundry mades this perfect for our family trip. The beaches on St. Thomas are truly some of the finest in the world, and none are too far away by car or taxi."

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.
