  • Wow! Amazing! Fantastic!

    "We spent a fantastic week in Skyflower! Upon arriving on St. John and getting our rental Jeep for the week, we were met by Marc Miller, the property manager, who guided us from Cruz Bay over to Coral Bay and up Bordeaux Mountain to Skyflower. The villa was amazing. The view from 1000 feet up was even better in person. The cool wind/breeze kept us comfortable all of the time. When we would come back to the villa at the end of a fun-filled day on St. John, we would open the doors and windows, and it would be cool in just a few minutes. We never cooked a meal in the villa, but the coffee make worked great each morning, allowing us to enjoy our coffee from the deck, enjoying the wonderful views of St. John's east end, as well as the plethora of BVIs in the distance. The refigerator also kept our drinks and snacks cool. We also enjoyed being able to wash our beach and bath towels as well as our dirty clothes in the great washer and dryer located on the 2nd level. The outdoor shower was great! I really can only say wonderful things about Skyflower. It's obvious that the owners take great pride in this villa. We loved the electronic gate and the level, paved driveway that had plenty of space for multiple vehicles (even though we only had the one Jeep). We loved waking up each morining to watch the sun rise from our bed view. We also loved the hot tub in the evenings/nights to soothe any aches and pains we may have gotten from our active days hiking trails or snorkeling. Of course the week went by way too fast. If and when we ever come back to St. John, we will definitely be staying at Skyflower again."

  • A slice of Heaven

    "20th trip to St. John and for the last several years have settled on the Coral Bay side of the island, specifically in Mamey Peak. Bay Rum Breeze was simply put "perfect" in every way. Spacious, comfortable, very well appointed kitchen, and that incredible view from every room from early morning to late evening, the view that just keeps on giving! Not to mention the lovely breezes high up on the mountain that keeps the little pesky flying critters away. We spent more time at the villa than away from the villa this trip, and the reason was that Bay Rum Breeze just felt so right for us. Loved every second spent there! Highly recommend it!"

  • An absolutely perfect paradise getaway!

    "This condo is the perfect place to unwind and experience the perfect relaxing vacation. First of all, I cannot say enough about Peter and Kim...they were so welcoming and helpful with directions and advice! They even dropped by before our arrival to turn on the AC for us! The condo itself was extremely clean and stocked with everything you'd need for the beach! (Snorkeling gear, beach towels, several coolers, chairs and even binoculars!) The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, silverware, pots, pans, and everything you'd need for cooking or blending frozen drinks! The condo also came equipped with wifi, satellite TV, DVD player, books and games....basically everything you'd need to feel right at home! The unit comes equipped with two awesome AC units and a bed that is just heavenly!! We slept better than we have in years! As for the outside, there are two separate balconies for eating breakfast or waking to have coffee off your bedroom....both have AMAZING views! We always felt very safe at the location! It's the perfect spot as it's a five minute trip into Red Hook and has several really nice beaches within walking distance! We would recommend the beach at Secret Harbour which is right up the street! If you rent a car, which was a huge plus, then it's a short drive into town to take the car ferry to St. John (a must do) I know for a fact that if....I mean WHEN we return to St. Thomas, we will call Peter and Kim and stay here again! It was the perfect getaway!"

  • Perfect Spot

    "My husband and I had a wonderful week at Kozy Kai in December 2013. It was exactly as described, the pictures are spot on. We had 2 minor issues during our stay and the property manager resolved them quickly (on Christmas Eve). The location is quiet, lovely and right on a beautiful beach. The snorkeling is great and the house has everything needed. We would return to this listing if on Grand Cayman again."

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.
