Make a holiday rental, home, or villa in the Caribbean your home away from home

Caribbean, West Indies

Caribbean holidays promote images of transparent waters, white powdery sand, exotic birds and cocktails. This is of course true, but considering the 7,000 islands and reefs which make up the Caribbean, it is hard to make a rule to cover all Caribbean villas. No two Caribbean holidays are the same. Some are rugged, mountainous volcanic islands, and others are flat and sandy; the diverse landscapes from cloud forests to cactus scrublands mean the Caribbean is an international conservation biodiversity hotspot.

Places to Holiday in the Caribbean

Looking for Caribbean property, resort or rental villa requires choosing an island first! Of the 7,000 islands, many stand out, and all for different reasons:

Antigua – has a tremendous number of soft powder beaches, and with an almost unbroken coral reef around it, the beaches are fantastic places to snorkel. Antigua is also the home of one of the region’s most important bird sanctuaries. The world famous Antigua Sailing Week is at the end of April

Bahamas – 700 islands, including Nassau, Long Island, Cat Island, Bimini to mention a few, and plenty of Caribbean villas to choose from. Each island in the Bahamas is unique, but they all share the clearest water in the world, with 200 feet of visibility.

Barbados – A flat coral island, with incredible geological structures, and a depth of art, music and culture. The north of the island boasts fantastic surfing, deep sea fishing and swimming with turtles, which is very popular.

Dominican Republic – Mountainous and covered in rainforests, the Dominican Republic offers excellent hiking, and the rivers, waterfalls and saltwater lakes mean that there are a wealth of creatures to be marveled at!

Jamaica – Rich in culture, the home of reggae, Jamaica, the Caribbean’s 3rd largest island caters for everyone. If you like lying on a beach, partying, diving, or the three R’s (reggae, reefs and rum), then a holiday villa in Jamaica is perfect for you. Not to be missed is the Blue Lagoon.

Trinidad & Tobago – Trinidad, the livelier of the two islands, and Tobago, with its selection of white or pink beaches come alive with the Carnival, two days of colour and calypso music.

Things to do in the Caribbean

With such diversity, there are hundreds of activities in the Caribbean. There is massive scope for scuba diving, sailing, swimming, sunbathing, deep sea fishing, hiking, snorkeling, tennis, cricket, kayaking and of course, relaxing in a Caribbean villa!

Caribbean Weather

Temperatures are between 20°C and 30°C all year round. The trade winds are fairly constant, and therefore keep the climate refreshing and warm all year, meaning that there is never a bad time to take a last minute rental villa on a Caribbean holiday.

Travel to the Caribbean

Cheap flights to the Caribbean depend on your destination, but flights are available to many Caribbean airports from many international airports in the UK, and there are regularly cheap flights available for last minute holidays.

The new staff were very friendly, reliable & efficient. The owner was very helpful & kept in touch to make sure everything was running smoothly at the house. We loved it & will be going back next year.

We had a couple of teething problems with the safe and the internet but the housekeeper went out of her way to sort everything out for us. The villa has everything you need, is well looked after and is in a great location. We would definitely go again!

The villa is very spacious, modern, clean with a stunning pool and deck area great for relaxing on the loungers or having a BBQ in the sunshine. The Villa is in a great location only 5 minutes walk to the supermarket and Marina where you'll find bars and restaurants and the Dive Centre. We would certainly recommend Miracles which is a Caribbean restaurant just at the entrance to Jolly Harbour. Jolly Beach is a 10 minute walk where you can hire some sun loungers, swim in the turquoise sea and get a bite to eat at Sandra's or Castaways Beach Bar. There are also other bars and restaurants including Shells Fish and Chips located in a London Bus just at the end of the road. We hired a car for the duration of our stay at the Villa and within the 2 weeks explored the full Island and would certainly recommend this as taxis can be very expensive. A short drive away is the sunning Sheer Rocks Restaurant, Dennis Beach Bar and Darkwood Beach which is much quieter than Jolly Beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Calabash it had everything we needed during our stay, the management team and the cleaners were brilliant too. We will certainly be back as Calabash is an ideal location and a beautiful villa
