  • Perfect Annual Retreat

    "My husband and I have been coming here for 11 years. You can not get a better location on St. John. Right out the door is the beach! All the comforts of home. Close to town, but extremely quit and private. We eat in most evenings with a wonderful grill available. All your beach needs provided, comfy chairs, hammocks, kayaks, limited snorkel gear. Hope to continue our annual retreat for years to come on wonderful Gibney Beach! The property is locally owned and managed with the owners on site to make your stay perfect!"

  • Stop searching - this is the one!

    "We have been vacationing in St. John for several years and have been searching for the perfect villa. We found it in Vista Cielo. From the three master suites to the well appointed kitchen, it has it all. The layout was well planned, allowing for privacy for each of the bedroom suites. The architecture was impressive and designed for privacy outside as well as inside. It has one of the largest pools we've seen, with a breathtaking view. Having Brenda as a local contact for any unexpected needs was a plus, but not necessary as the villa had everything we wanted. The location is ideal - an upscale neighborhood not far from town or the beaches. You will not be disappointed."

  • Amazing!!

    "My family vacationed at Ocean Dreams. The owner equipped the condo with everything we needed. The setup was well thought out. It was perfect!! The complex was well kept. We felt very safe. Security constantly patrolled the complex. We were seconds from the beach and a 5-minute walk along the beach to fantastic nightlife. Maria, the manager, was awesome. She was available at all times. She promptly responded to our questions. It was if we were Maria’s only clients!! She arrived on time to great us and was there on time to see us off. Mark, the owner of the condo, truly cares about his property. He called me soon after I requested information about his condo. He actually screened me. I had other choices, some less expensive, but he sold me. By the way, none of the other owners called me. The owners’ managers called me; the owners did not. The care and quality showed throughout the process. If you plan on visiting Caberete and want to stay at a beautiful, safe place, I highly recommend Mark's Ocean Dreams condo. We absolutely loved it!!"

  • A Great Place to Stay

    "We really enjoyed the Villa and the Grounds. We have stayed on the island numerous times and Terre Basses is by far our favorite area. The villa is nestled in the middle of a quiet area and is surrounded by lush topical vegetation. The Villa was clean with lots of amenities, very comfortable bed, great A/C, wireless internet and international phone plus a new smart tv to mention a few. The outdoor area was great; the Gazebo is the perfect place for any meal or to just have a few drinks and get a cool breeze plus a great view of the sea. We also enjoyed the bird feeders and watching the colorful birds fly to and from the feeder. Max the cat would also come by at times for a quick visit. The pool was perfect for us and I must say that the outdoor furniture, especially the lounge chairs, very some of the most comfortable we have enjoyed. The owners were great,with there communication prior to rental and directions to villa and we had no problems during our stay but Gordon the manager did stop by shortly after we arrive to greet us and was available if we needed anything. The privacy did make you feel like you had your own little piece of paradise and we spent a lot of our visit at the Villa and we look forward to a return visit to Villa Sugree"

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.
