10 PLACES IN THE CARIBBEAN YOU NEVER THOUGHT YOU COULD AFFORD

The Caribbean has long been a destination that many aspire to, the islands that inhabit people’s dreams for the ultimate escape. Imagine curling your toes into the silkiest of sands. Imagine letting the gin-coloured, warm waters lap at your feet. Imagine the tinkle of the steel drums, the beads of iced water casually rolling down the edge of your glass and the explosion of flavours from the cuisine lovingly bathed in treasured spices. For a lot of people it remains as just that; Imagination.

However, where there’s a will to travel, there’s always a way around the initial breath-taking prices that you see published on many websites. Our top tip to keep in mind is that the rates shown are always for maximum occupancy and once this initial cost is broken down into the total per person, the prices start to look a lot more sunny! We never tire of sharing with our guests how cost-effective villa rental can be compared to say, a hotel stay in the same location. Plus, villa rental has these incredible benefits, which at the prices we’re about to show you, can’t be ignored:

So why is a private villa rental just that much more enjoyable?

    • The rates nearly always include the services of a staff. Many of our villas come equipped with private chefs, housekeepers and gardeners to make your experience as relaxed as possible.

 

    • As private individuals own each villa, they usually enjoy fantastic locations that some hotel’s simply couldn’t afford to occupy. More than 60% of our Caribbean villas are beachfront or have access to the beach, and it just makes the whole visit unforgettable.

 

    • Each of our guests is treated as an individual, and each of our villa rentals is personalised and bespoke to our visitors requirements. Our on-island management teams have built up the best relations with local companies and have insider knowledge into the most reliable services and best facilities, so the concierge service is second to none.

 

  • Guests truly have the freedom to ‘do their own thing’. There are no restrictions on eating times or pool hours, and no overcrowding.

So bearing these points in mind, read our top ’10 Places In The Caribbean You Never Thought You Could Afford’ and prepare to be surprised at how accessible these luxury retreats really are…
