We want to hear from you!

You are the key to our success             


When it comes to villa rentals, we have learned that the best way to find out how we are doing is to check in with our guests.  We are based here in the islands, and we make it our business to know our properties, inside and out.   However, our many guests experience the nuances of villa life that comes with enjoying the full run of the house.  Does that air conditioner produce the perfect temperature?  Are the bougainvillea's leaves constantly in the pool?  Is the Wi-Fi strong on the verandah?   


We'd like to thank our guests for their valuable feedback over the years;  it's what helps us to know when we are on the right track, or need a nudge in the right direction.  We appreciate you!  


Fill in our Luxury Villa Guest Questionnaire on our web site, and see what your fellow villa lovers have to say on our blog!

Lisa Schmid helped to shape our Ritz-Carlton Club program and revive a number of our villas... and now she is the owner of her own design company, Esprit Décor.  Her Asheville, NC home was recently spotlighted in the Citizen-Times, and we couldn't be happier for her success at creating her own special place...

Why we're special

Nancy Anderson
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 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!
