  • 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."

  • Graet cottage and great location

    "We had a wonderful week at Blue Moon Cottage. The cottage is very well maintained and decorated with a lot of interesting touches. Judy the caretaker was at the dock waiting for us along with Vikki from Hope Town Carts with our golf cart. Judy showed us around the cottage and left us to enjoy the day. Tahiti Beach is a great spot, easy to reach by golf cart. The ocean beach is gorgeous as well. The restaurant choices are many and all that we tried were excellent. Our 2 favorites were Abaco Inn and Firefly. We fished with Cap Plug and had a gorgeous day and caught a ton of fish. He really knows his business. Blue Moon Cottage has everything you need for cooking in and the gas grill was brand new. Internet worked perfectly. Shea was a pleasure to work with. She really has a special place there on Elbow."

  • Best Vacation Ever!

    "My fiance and our two daughters recently had the privilege of spending an amazing 7 days at Villa Esmeralda and to say we were completely blown away would be an understatement. The property itself is simply breathtaking. The way that the home is built is beyond compare; it was like staying in a modern day Middle Eastern palace. The rooms were truly exceptional in size and very well appointed. Our daughters had there very own separate quarters as did my fiance and I. This home is designed for large groups seeing as though it offers so much privacy. The pool area was beautiful and the breeze from the bay made relaxing outside very comfortable. Roy, the gentlemen in charge of maintaining the property was so very polite and helpful. Some very good places to check out is Sunbeach Club on Orient Beach...be sure to ask for shots of love. Also check out Pineapple Pete's. You are sure to have the most enjoyable vacation when vacationing at Villa Esmeralda."

Caribbean Travel Tips

Activities and Attractions at Caribbean Vacation Rentals

The Caribbean Sea holds a treasure of tropical islands that make for the ideal type of vacation destination. You can choose from glamorous resort complexes with entertainment, casinos and luxury hotels, or you can find a quiet cabin on a remote island and pass the days lazing about in a hammock. There are islands that are ideal for birdwatching, whale watching or swimming with dolphins. There are also several islands that have protected marine reserves where turtles come ashore to nest. No matter what your interests are, they all have persistent sunny and warm weather all year-round, beautiful sandy beaches, warm turquoise waters and beautiful coral underwater reefs.

If you want to do nothing more than catch some rays on a beautiful beach, you may have a hard time deciding which island destination to visit. The Caribbean is also rated as one of the world's best scuba diving destinations. The warm tropical water provides the ideal habitat for colorful hard and soft corals to form. In addition to the natural reefs, ancient shipwrecks have become the sites for many artificial reefs. Water sports are also right up there on the list of top activities. Choose from sailing on a luxury yacht, exploring the coastline in a sea kayak, going on a snorkeling excursion or playing in the waves on a Jet Ski. There is also excellent deep sea fishing and many charters available in the various island marinas.

On the islands, you will find a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Many of the islands have a history relating to the slave trade and sugar plantations. There are many historical sites and museums that are interesting to visit. Shopping is another favorite visitor pastime. Some islands have streets filled with luxury boutiques offering the very latest in fashion, appliances and accessories. Other less developed islands have more quaint shops and street markets where you can buy crafts.

Stylish Caribbean Villas

In the Caribbean, you can find an island destination that fits both your interests and budget. If you prefer a rustic-style vacation, there are many cozy cottages tucked away in seaside villas. If you want to be where the glitz and glamour is, then you can seek out some of the top Caribbean resorts. Some islands have private villas that are large enough to accommodate wedding parties or host family reunions.

Visitors to Caribbean Resort Rentals

The Caribbean is favorite honeymoon and wedding destination for visitors from North America. It is the closest tropical paradise and there are often very good honeymoon deals to be found. The islands attract people who enjoy the beach, long hours of sunshine, water sports and nature. Land adventures on some of the more remote islands attract the more adventurous type of travelers. The Caribbean is a top diving destination and people travel from all over the world to dive the islands' coral reefs. There are many resorts that cater specifically for families by providing kids' clubs and entertainment for children of all ages. This allows parents to have a bit of a break from family responsibilities and reconnect with one another as a couple while the kids play with newfound friends.

Seasons to Travel to the Caribbean

The Caribbean straddles the equator and most islands therefore have a typically tropical climate. This results in warm year-round weather with high levels of humidity. Many of the islands are prone to tropical storms which take place in the late summer months between June and October. The peak travel season for most Caribbean vacation destinations is between December and January when the weather is more temperate.
