A Feast for the Eyes

FeastMany around the world are preparing for traditional holidays like Thanksgiving, Chanukah and Christmas and the feasts that go with them.

Instead of changing leaves and snow, the islands yield a feast for the eyes:  sapphire blue waters, golden sands, a riot of ornamental blooms including the so-elegant "snow on the mountain".

Where ever you spend the coming season, we wish you a feast of love!

Inviting, historic Bellagio Estate

We have a term for visits for the purpose of sampling the atmosphere, bouncing on the beds and peeking in the cupboards:  "familiarization", or "fam" for short.  It's our time to get familiar with the villas that we represent so that we may be as helpful as possible by virtue of our own experience.  Over the next few weeks, we'll be sharing the adventures we've had during this pre-high season must for every staff member so please bookmark our blog to keep up with all we've seen and learned.

For this issue:  the owners of St. Thomas villa Bellagio Estate recently invited us over to check out their improvements for the upcoming season... what a way to end the workday!  Read the blog entry and  enjoy with us!

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!
