"The sunshine is waiting for you!" 

  May 2011 

Ask your way to a dream villa vacation!

Finding the perfect villa starts with questions.      


For example, do you prefer to have privacy at the pool?  Do your older teens want to have some space?  Is this vacation for your honeymoon, anniversary or other milestone occasion?  Do you want to be close to a great snorkel spot?  


Why not start with "Planning a Flawless Villa Experience", some really useful suggestions that will help you create a perfect villa vacation?  It's available on our web site.    


The right questions will lead you to the right villa. So, ask away!       


See you soon,

Your dream villa could be just a few questions away...
Your questions are important to us.
Question marks image
  • Does my villa have an iron?
  • Will I be able to see the sun set?
  • May I get married at the villa?
  • What if my baggage gets lost?
These are just a few of the many questions our guests ask before renting a villa.  Some are particular to specific villas, some are more general.

We are able to provide the answers to these and may questions because we know our villas inside and out and visit them regularly.  Also, over the years, others have asked similar questions, which Nancy kept track of to create the document "Planning a Flawless Villa Experience" (available on our web site).  Many questions and answers are also in our Villa Rental Terms and St. Thomas and St. John Guest Guides, on our Downloads page, which includes "Planning a Flawless Villa Experience"

For even more Frequently-Asked Questions (FAQs) about villa rentals, visit our FAQs page, which includes a lot of "little" questions and answers that we hope you'll find useful.

Of course, you are always free to contact our office Mondays through Saturdays (except holidays) for live telephone assistance toll free at 1-800-537-6246 or 1-800-666-6246 (international 1-340-776-0635), or you may contact us by email.

Asking the right questions can lead you to the best property for your desires and needs;  let us help you!

In just a few brief sentences, this Tortola visitor laid it on the line:  both the villa (Tara) and the service were superlative, from both property and car rental staff members.  It should go without saying that these guests look forward to their next visit! 
 Kudos all around for Tara!

Old Stone Farmhouse, St. Thomas 
Old Stone Farmhouse restaurant St. Thomas - logo Presentation and flavors dazzle!

Nancy enjoyed dinner with a friend at the legendary Old Stone Farmhouse restaurant at Mahogany Run on St. Thomas and was so delighted with the experience that she chose to tell the world on her FaceBook page.


Just in case you missed it on the newsfeed, both the article and pictures are on Nancy's blog.  Next time you are in the islands, perhaps you will share your own dining experience with us - we love to hear (and share) great island restaurant reviews!

Take a beach home with you!
Magens Bay DVD Magens Bay featured in DVD

A great souvenir is one that you will enjoy again and again... true to the French word for "a remembrance", a priceless souvenir is indeed a joy.  The Magens Bay Authority, managers of the acclaimed Magens Bay Beach on St. Thomas, wants every visitor to be able to share what National Geographic has named as one of the 10 Most Beautiful Beaches of the World.

The Beauty and the Beach DVD tells of how Magens Bay came to be and all that it encompasses, including the wishes of property donor Arthur S. Fairchild for the community and the world to forever enjoy access to this precious, heart-shaped natural wonder on St. Thomas island's north shore.

The DVD is available at the cashier booth (as you enter Magens Bay) for $20.00.

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.
