Our happy hour treat
Villas need constant attention so that they are at their best for our guests.  Our villa managers have their hands full, and some even do double duty, as does Chloe at Indochine.  She is both manager and cook, and she invited us over to tour the property and for a light bite as the sun went down...

Chez Le Caribe - Prêt-à-Plaisir (Ready to Please)

Former manager re-invents landmark Hervé
Nancy was over the moon at the now-open Chez Le Caribe (formerly Hervé), an authentic French-Caribbean restaurant in the heart of downtown Charlotte Amalie.  A major reason:  Chef Elvet Carty, who not only presided over the kitchen but managed the longtime favorite fine dining outlet Hervé, for 5 years before it closed.


Of course, Nancy had lots of company, as Chef Carty invited the staff to experience the debut of this most excellent restaurant and wine bar... Read Chez Le Caribe - Formerly Hervé - Debuts in Style on our blog!

Work is work and play is play but somehow they met on Virgin Gorda when Angela and Anita took an exploratory trip to get acquainted with some great people.  Sol y Sombra was command central, and a pleasure in which to take meetings, and to come "home" to after their days touring the island...

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 deluxe homes for off-island owners as a way to help them 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!
