  • I want to come back

    "I have rented stunning villa Alize 5 times already and each time it has been an enchantment. Beautifully located in Guana Bay area, the view from the terrace (and the swimming pool) is amazing, overlooking the see. It provides 4 extra large master bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms and wonderful sea view, two bedrooms fitting 5 beds each for children and teenagers (with en-suite bathrooms) and a last double bedroom (bathroom as well). A very spacious and clear kitchen, a cosy living-room and a large outside dining table . It is perfect for several families and friends, there is plenty of space to enjoy moments together and times resting quietly. There is all the comfort you need: air-conditioning, fitness room, garden gazebo, jacuzzi… The house and garden are beautifully maintained. Tastily furnished, the design gives a modern Caribbean atmosphere that makes you feel peaceful and relaxed. The residence is conveniently located 10 minutes drive from Philipsburg and close to marvellous beaches. If you do not wish to drive, you can walk down to Guana Bay beach and benefit from an immaculate and empty seashore. A drink on the wide deck facing sunset on a warm tropical night is something you’ll never forget. I was so pleased with this rental that I am returning next winter with family and friends."

  • Location Is Key!

    "What a great time we had! This property is steps away from the beach! It's on the lower level so you can just walk out onto the sand! Love that! Breakfast on the patio near the water and sunsets that most people only dream about! Location is everything! The condo was clean, safe and close to everything. As noted, the complex has the beach, pool, kiddie pool, hot tub, and its own restaurant within steps of the condo. Something for everyone! We arrived on a Sunday not realizing that all the stores (including supermarkets) were closed, so the restaurant was key since we were so hungry from our trip. There are even grills outside where we BBQ'd one night. Snorkeling in the Caymans was the best! There are a number of great recommendations in the journal at the condo. Our favorite was a boat tour (Acquarius Sea Tours) that took us out snorkeling, to stingray city, and starfish point - great for our teenagers! Great staff, they picked us up at the condo, included snorkel gear (even life jackets and noodles if desired), and underwater photos (all included in the cost)! They didn't overcrowd the boat like a lot of others we saw. Great time, definitely would recommend to all - best bang for the buck! Another highlight was The Cracked Conch (near the turtle farm) and it's sister restaurant. Both great snorkeling and food! Unfortunately, my teen daughter needed medical care (minor - not island related) and there is an urgent care facility within walking distance. They were great and were able to get her back on her feet for the trip back home. Just good to note that there is a competent medical staff nearby. Would recommend this condo and the beautiful Cayman Islands in a heartbeat. The people are so warm and friendly. Larry and his wife are lucky to call this their own! Thank you for sharing your home and creating long lasting memories for me and my family!!"

  • Beautiful Villa in Idyllic Setting

    "We are fresh off a stay at Villa Jasmine and would highly recommend it! It is a beautiful home that was perfect for our group (4 adults and 3 children). It was immaculate and nicely decorated… it reminded me of a Tuscan villa. The kitchen was well stocked and there were plenty of beach towels and linens. The pool was always a perfect temperature and there were many beach toys, chairs, etc. The view of Taylor Bay was stunning and it was a short walk (2 minutes) to the beach. The only downside was there were many mosquitos (true of the entire island) so we had to keep doors closed at night… and only the bedrooms have air conditioning so it made it hard to enjoy the common areas… but, again, I blame that on the bugs… not the house. The owner & caretaker were very attentive and easy to deal with. We hope to visit again soon!"

  • Best Ever Vacation in the Carribbean!

    "What a beautiful place Marazul is. Wow! We have been searching for a place where we could swim in the ocean everyday. Where the pool was a comfortable temperature, and the accommodations are comfortable. We have found it! Swim right off the sea ladder. There are all sorts of fish etc to see. I hate fighting the surf to snorkel, so this was great. The condo is very comfortable. Loved the foam topper on the bed. Our only issue was the WiFi. It goes in and out. Kind of normal by caribbean standards, but Chris had assured us that their's was top notch. We did not agree. We had asked, orior to our arrival, if we should bring a booster, but we were assured it was not necessary. We need to stay connected to our business via the internet, so this is a sticky point with us. But other than that...we loved it. Eat at Sol Food. Shop Banali's in the Punda. Enjoy!"

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.
