  • We can't wait to come back to paradise!!!!!

    "One of my girlfriends found an article in Forbes about Parrot Cay and suggested it as a destination for our yearly R&R trip. As far as I knew, Parrot Cay was basically a private island that no one, other than A list celebrities had the key to. We were so excited when we came across this listing, we prefer a house to a hotel (which was the only other option on the island) so when we found out it was available we were thrilled. The house is unlike any place we've ever stayed in. It had everything we needed. The kitchen is big and open, sprawling into a dining and living area. It was perfect for social cooking, which is our thing. There were lots of little special touches that we really appreciated like a wine refrigerator, local artwork and screened porches off the master bedrooms. It literally stands over the turquoise sea, so the views are unencumbered and breathtaking. The house itself is just really special. It both made us feel completely removed from our urban lives and comfortably at home. As much fun as we had inside, outside is where the WOW is. We spent a lot of time snorkeling in the private beach. We also walked over to the COMO beachfront and enjoyed some delicious cocktails at their pool bar, Lotus. They were incredibly kind to us and treated us like we were their guests. On our last two days we had a boat ride arranged for us so that we could go fishing...it was so much fun, we highly recommend it. The only negative thing I have to say about the Hodge Lodge is that it will spoil you! We used to change vacation destinations each year but decided after this royal experience, we’re never going anywhere else."

  • Location, POOL, Comfy!

    "My boyfriend and I spent 16 nights at the villa and absolutely LOVED it! The location is excellent, East End of the island is definitely the area you want to stay in. The villa is only a few miles from Christiansted but the roads all over the island are curvey, slow and not well kept-up so walking and/or biking is not really an option. You definitely need a car ANYWHERE you stay on the island in order to see everything. The villa itself is clean, nice, very cozy and comfortable. The only issues we found were the stove and microwave are pretty outdated, we cooked a lot of our meals so this was of importance to us. Also the neighbors upstairs were loud on occasion, but if you are used to people walking above you then you will have no problems! It was definitely quieter than any hotel would have been! It was WONDEFUL having the pool right outside the back door! On days where we didnt want to beach it we spent our time out there, it was also a very nice spot to stargaze at night! Everything was very clean and well-kept, and the full-time residents were very pleasant and friendly. I highly recommend this villa for your visit to St. Croix, especially for the price! It was a great deal and we had an amazing time in such a beautiful place. We cannot wait to go back!"

  • Great Escape from the Northeast in January/February

    "We arrived in January from frigid temperatures in the north to the balmy breezes, sunny days and beautiful beaches. Our condo is clean, well equipped and has all the amenities. The combination of fans and wonderful breezes keep the unit cool and comfortable. There is air conditioning but we never used it during our stay. Breakfast on the deck overlooking the pool was always very pleasant and in the evening we'd watch the sunset from the 3rd floor deck. Although we did not use the pool, we could see that it was very well maintained as were the grounds. The people working on the grounds and the manager were all very nice and helpful. The beach is just a short walk from the condo. My husband and I used to walk to the beach at night to watch the waves and enjoy the wind coming off the ocean. The surf is fairly rough at this beach but it's just a short walk to the Carribbean side of the island where you can swim, snorkel and just enjoy beach time. There is much to do or if you want you can just do nothing. Paradise is a place for relaxing and rejuvenating. We certainly did our share of that when there and look forward to returning next year."

  • Awesome Stay!!!

    "This place is a modern, beautifully decorated , spacious condo located in Cupecoy! The pictures of the condo are 100% accurate and do not do any justice to the actual views which are simply stunning!!! It has 2 balconies with unobstructed views of the front of the building (entrance to the gated property) and the back (ocean view). The highlights of the property are the WiFi, a cell phone for use, surround sound system, flat screen TVs, fully equipped kitchen, tennis court, pool, gym, and day spa. Cannot say enough about the location!!! Location is everything as they say and this condo is in the perfect spot! Located on the Dutch side of the island but easily accessible to the French side, Airport is 10 minuets away, Maho (restaurants, shops, bars, Casino Royale) is 5 minuets away, Atlantic Casino & Temptation Restaurant (one of our favorite spots for dinner) are walking distance across the street, The Blue Mall & a grocery store is 2 minuets away, the Mullet Bay Golf Course (and Mullet Bay Beach) is 3 minuets away. The cherry on top? The condo comes with an available rental car (Unheard of!! Great amenity!!) for use so feel free to explore the island! We did and we fell in love with Pinel Island (accessible by ferry $10 RT). St. Maarten is a great island to visit because it can be relaxing, while still being entertaining. If you are not a 'beach person' for example, there is still a ton of other activities to do on this particular island. There are a lot of options in terms of entertainment. All-in-all a must stay! The owner of this condo is incredibly accommodating! We had a fantastic time in St. Maarten! A beautiful island with friendly people. You will definitely enjoy yourself!"

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.
