  • Tough to Top This!

    "Stayed at Little Arches to celebrate Christmas (wife and myself and 22 and 25 year old daughters). All agreed it was best vacation ever – only sadness was realizing on Friday that our week was up and we had to leave the next day! Kim (owner) was great to work with. Everything was better than advertised, all accommodations were in great shape, very clean and well kept. She provided AWESOME detail on logistics to get to the house (was great – flight was long delayed and we arrived at North Eleuthera tired and after dark but breezed through like pros thanks to her directions and the helpful taxi drivers that know her and pamper her guests). She also gave us the low down on all places to visit, activities to pursue and places to shop and eat. We did not get thought the full of the list, so are already planning the return to continue checking it all out. The island is a ton of fun with both the friendliest locals and the most awesome beach we have seen (and we have checked out a lot). Little Arches is less than a minute from the beach and we could sit on the upstairs patio and listen to the waves crashing every night. The options for restaurants run the gamut from upscale (The Rock House) to super laid back local fare (conch salads at Queen Conch). The multiple beachfront restaurants are great for any meal and the staff is awesome in coming up with all types of creative local drinks. There are also many options to buy food for cooking yourself and Kim has Little Arches set up to cook and or grill any type of items you are to as well (we cooked in for our Christmas feast). Have rented properties in a number of locals and found Little Arches the nicest place not only in terms of location and amenities, but the personal attention from the owner. She had not only provided the information noted above, but arranged for our golf cart, checked with us during the stay to ensure all was fine and ensured that we had connected with the maid and were receiving all the services we needed. Can’t wait to go back!"

  • Exactly what the Dr ordered.

    "Perfect.... Dinner night one in the nearby infamous " Gap" was welcomed after a long flight as was the return home to relaxation with a glass of wine and sounds of the outdoors, not the club scene which was only a 5 minute walk away. Sleep came easy after days in the sun on comfy beds and waking up with coffee on the patio watching birds explore the lime, mango and banana trees in this or the neighbouring yard. We were there over Easter weekend so with store closures, the close proximity to restaurants, grocery, even a coffee bar and of course not to mention a beautiful beach - all within walking distance was ideal. The house was cute and spacious and most importantly, spotless. The decor was what I imagined Barbados decor to be, lovely blue accents on light coloured furniture. This is a place that i would live in in a heartbeat. Already saving our coins to go back ;)"

  • Spectacular Honeymoon

    "My husband and I honeymooned to the Brac in December, and we were so impressed with Featherstone! Minnie has truly created a personal paradise on the island. The cottage itself is situated on a property that also include's Minnie's home and a downstairs guest apartment that is also a rental property. My husband and I never felt as though we were anything but alone here at Featherstone, however. We only saw Minnie a few times during our week stay, and she was always respectful of our privacy. The cottage is further back than Minnie's home, but it is still only steps from the ocean. We always felt like we had the beach to ourselves when we were spending time there. Minnie has done a great job with different areas for relaxation. There are two gazebos on her beach, each with two hammocks (great for a midday nap!). There are also several beach and lounge chairs for sunbathing. Cayman Brac is a rocky island, but Minnie's beach is one of the nicest we saw during our exploration. The beach is sandy and a bit rocky, but it is not the iron shore that is seen on the majority of the island. Wear water shoes! The kitchen and living room were the perfect size for us. The bedroom is very beachy-feeling and so comfortable! There is a private deck off of the bedroom which is where the hot tub is currently, along with a table and chairs. We spent almost every night in the hot tub stargazing with homemade piña coladas or daiquiris. The deck no longer has the stairs that come down to the ground-level, as seen in the photo, but we liked it that way - it felt more private! Behind the cottage is a private patio area with a grill, table and chairs, and a hammock. Minnie made sure that we were very comfortable during our stay. For the first few nights the island was extremely windy, and our power went out to the upstairs at one point. We didn't notice too much because we were gone most of the day, but Minnie called an electrician and the problem was fixed quickly! There is air conditioning in the cottage that we used on occasion, and it was very comfortable and cooled the home quickly. Overall we loved Cayman Brac and our little cottage at Featherstone! The island is small enough that there isn't much nightlife, but there are plenty of restaurants. If you're looking for an adventure, this island has great hiking, snorkeling, diving, and fishing, and lots of cool history (with no shortage of ways to lounge around). :) Thanks, Minnie! Can't wait to come back!"

  • Sand and surf!

    "We had such a wonderful stay at this Aguada beachfront home! The property was perfect for our group of two couples and one toddler and could have easily accommodated larger families. Everything was clean and comfortable and we all enjoyed lounging and eating on the large deck. The pictures don't do justice to the incredible view from the deck! There is no oven or dishwasher, but otherwise the kitchen had everything we needed and we ate most of our meals at home. The beach is mostly used by the few villas in the area, so it was very quiet and nice to walk. Unfortunately, the surf was too strong for swimming during our visit, but we enjoyed watching a handful of surfers every morning and evening. We found nice swimming on the western-facing beaches of Rincon (15 min drive) and Playa Crash Boat in Aguadilla (30 min drive). Many thanks to the owners, who welcomed us and were always available via text."

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.
