The perfect place to celebrate!
Your next island vacation could be more than just a holiday from the everyday - it could be the foundation of a milestone celebration! We mean more than just weddings here. Birthdays, vow renewals, anniversaries, retirements, family reunions, graduations and other key events are perfectly savored with family and loved ones in beautiful surroundings.
Our Concierge can help you to create a memorable occasion that will be treasured for many years to come. We have a number of excellent spaces (including restaurants and ballrooms) to suit parties of practically any size, plus entertainers, chefs, planners and more to ensure that everything goes according to your wishes. If your event will involve more than those registered to stay at your villa, there are a few villas whose owners welcome the opportunity to host a small function, so please allow us to walk you through the possibilities!
Imagine your next birthday or other special occasion right here in the islands! Included in this issue are some great tips to the perfect special event!

|Planning a celebration? Let us help!|
|A guide to special occasions in the islands |
We're honored when our guests decide to celebrate milestone occasions with us! Below, a few keys to a worry-free event:
Include us in the process as early as possible. We can make sure that the location of your villa is more convenient to your venue and that you have chosen a licensed professional service provider. We can also arrange for any introductions or access required, depending on the situation. If you have chosen to celebrate in a villa that allows gatherings, we will acquaint you with any owner terms and/or management policies.
Know your headcount. Your venue will have limits, and budgeting is much simpler when you know what you are working with. If your venue is a villa, you should know that they also feature maximum headcounts to ensure the comfort and safety of all who will be attending as well as maintain the tranquility of the neighborhood.
A word about partying in our villas. In the interest of being good neighbors, our noise policy is that all party music, dancing, and general high-spirited celebration cease by 10 pm sharp. Other requirements and cautions can be found below in our Luxury Wedding Policy.
What's cooking? Our selected chefs are professional and licensed, and know our villas and the requirements included in our Functions Policy in regards to the use of the property, trash removal, and layout. Please let our Concierge direct you to a vendor who will not only adhere to to policy, but reduce your concerns during the event (as well as your financial liability). After all, your are supposed to be enjoying time with your loved ones, not acting as sentry.
Grander visions? Grander villa. We only have a select handful of luxury villas at which functions above and beyond maximum headcount are permitted, and each has its own terms as set by owner. Please contact us BEFORE choosing your villa, so that we may direct you to the proper accommodations.
For assistance in choosing your villa, contact our office 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.

|Why we're special|
McLaughlin Anderson Luxury Villas President Nancy Anderson 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).
