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 apartment was absolutely fantastic, spotless with everything we needed, plenty of towels including beach towels. Andrea (housekeeper) came and cleaned for us which was brilliant. The Apartment was well equipped with nothing forgotten! With two lovely patio areas with seats & table, one coming out from the lounge and one coming out from the bedroom The pool & pool area was great, very clean and well maintained. The apartment was very near everything, just a short 5 min walk to the Garage which sold everything you would want and then just across the road the supermarket/mall. The Beach was about a 4 min walk which would take you Discovery Bay Beach or you could walk a bit further down to Surfside/Zaccios Beach or you could walk further up to Mullins, Alleynes or any beach to be honest. Limegrove which is also just a 4 min walk has lovely shops and restaurants & bars within easy reach and also just over the road from there is 1st & 2nd Street, again with bars and restaurants & just another couple of minutes walk further down are more lovely restaurants & bars, including Tides, Zaccios, Drift, Beach House and many more. So, in a nutshell, this apartment is a Gem which is perfectly positioned for everything. I would recommend this to any of my friends and family and we will definitely be returning ........

The apartment was perfect in terms of location, facilities and comfort. The presentation of the accommodation was exceptional and the owner provided a first class service from start to finish. The local bars and restaurants offered a variety of service and the standard was consistently high. The ease of access to the nearby beaches was a delight. We wouldn't hesitate recommending the apartment to family and friends.

I was not disappointed! I stayed for a week and very much enjoyed both the apartment itself as well as relaxing by the pool. Key collection and check-out ran smoothly, the apartment was very clean, and linen was all of a good quality. The location of the apartment provides you with the flexibility and freedom to explore Barbados' many beaches and beauty spots. Personal favourite past-times include happy hour at zaccios (4-6) while watching the sunset, lunch at Mullins beach bar, and a morning walk along the beach at Barclay park on the east coast. Enjoy! (Oh and keep a look out for the monkeys and fire-flies!)
