Recent Caribbean property reviews
"This place is awesome! Steps from the pool and one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The villa is very spacious, clean, in a perfect location and the owner is a joy to work with. 5 minute walk to the marina, stores and restaurants. Will be returning next summer!"Guest: Bruce Date of Stay: June 2012 Review Submitted: May 17, 2013View listing
"My family stayed in this condo, including my husband, myself, my two adult sons, and my mother in law for a week in July. Everything was excellent! There was plenty of space for us to spread out, and the views from the balcony were breathtaking! The condo was clean, and stocked with everything we needed. Amigo's grocery store was just across the street, along with Walgreen's and Baskin and Robins Ice Cream. I was concerned when booking that not having air conditioning in the main living area would be a problem, but Drew was absolutely correct when he said you don't need it! The trade winds were beautiful and kept the condo very comfortable, even in July! All of Drew's recommendations about places to eat and things to do in the area were spot on! All in all, we had a wonderful time, and would definitely rent this condo again in the future!"Guest: LD222 Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: August 9, 2014View listing
"We just got back from St-Martin and stayed at the Villa Joie de Vie. This house was great! It was spacious, clean and had all the amenities anyone can ask for. The beach was steps away and the pool was as you see in the pictures. It would have been an added bonus if the pool was heated! We were very happy with our stay and Magalie from the rental company was very helpful and available. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone and would go back!"Guest: Harris C.

"outstanding property, tastefully furnished and extremely well-equipped villa in a beautiful, serene and relaxing setting. The villa itself is spacious and modern with 3 large bed-rooms, each with its own large bathroom and walk in closet and an elegant spacious living area with large windows affording amazing views of a lovely golf course. We don't golf but really enjoyed staying at the Royal Westmoreland. The pool/grounds/beach access were outstanding. We loved grilling and eating at home and enjoying the lovely view. The caretaker was great, folded our laundry and made us a truly delicious Bajan meal one night, the best meal we had the whole trip (we hired her extra for this, it was affordable well worth it). well-equipped with books, movies, beach toys, a cooler to take to the beach, ice packs, high-end cooking/kitchen supplies, new grill, robes in the bedrooms. Helpful, responsive, gracious owner. Overall, quite a treat and an excellent value."Guest: susan k. Date of Stay: April 2011 Review Submitted: May 2, 2011View listing
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
