1. Choose the right property for your party
Are you a group of couples? Extended family with children including toddlers? Great friends seeking island adventure? Start searching early for the best selection and you'll have plenty to choose from. The ratio of baths to bedrooms could be critical, or perhaps child safety is important. Do you feel a need to be "off the beaten path" or close to dining, nightlife and attractions? We will help you to narrow down your options because we know the islands and our properties inside and out.

2. Extras, extras!
As soon as you have confirmed your booking with deposit, get to work on your extras: rental cars, grocery provisioning, special activities and needs. Here in the islands we have a small population and the number of qualified vendors and services is limited. For more options shop for these things as early as possible. Contact our Concierge to get started .

3. Have a smooth arrival
Where is your villa in relation to your port of entry? Where is your port of entry in relation to your car rental company? You could add up to an hour to the time it takes you to get your toes into the water if you are unaware of these distances. Allow us to assist you with booking your car, escort and/or ground transportation, and your departure. Have with you as you travel all information provided by us and your Concierge which will contain information on contacting your island management team and service providers as needed in case of any delays.

4. Keep your traditions
Special holiday meal preparation is easy when you plan properly. You will find that most of the needs you have may be found with local grocers and farmers. Pre-stock your villa so that when you arrive, your selection of fresh vegetables, fruits, meats, poultry and fish, as well as beverages, dairy items and baked goods will be here and ready for you. If you have special dietary requirements such as Kosher, gluten-free, non-dairy, vegetarian, Halal, vegan... may be fulfilled right here, or you may consider bringing your favorites to supplement what is available locally.

5. The more the happier
For very large parties, you will find villas that can accommodate over a dozen guests, or villas that are very close to each other so that you can expand your group and truly enjoy the holiday in paradise! Begin today with a Villa Search on our website. Or, Contact us in Reservations with your number of adults, children and infants, your dates of arrival and departure, and any other special requests so that we can get started on planning your Perfect Villa Holiday!
