August 2010
It's the last month of summer!

With temperatures always in the 80's to 90's, it may seem as though we enjoy an endless summer here in the islands, but in fact, we have our own unique "seasons"!

This is truly summertime, with pools and ocean waters nearly bath-warm under tropical sunshine.  Gradually, temperatures will level off to low 80's through the fall and into the winter, when we are forced to bed down under blankets to ward off the chill of 68 degree nights.

As you prepare for the winter, don't forget our plight;  this kind of misery loves company!

We really are villa experts
We live in the islands, but it takes much more than that to become an villa rental and management expert.  Our company was established in 1985 by happy accident.  We began renting out homes for sale as a way to defray maintenance, improvement and upkeep costs, and soon creating spectacular Caribbean luxury villa vacations became a way of life. 
We know our villa and island managers personally, and regularly tour our properties so that we have come to know them inside and out! Our amazing support team now spans 6 islands (and one adorable cay).
Over the years, we've developed a soft knowledge base called Planning a Flawless Villa Experience (PDF download) that's been shared countless times.  You may also check out our list of Frequently-Asked Questions (FAQs) to acquaint yourself with villa life. 
See you soon!
