WHY IT RATES: the villas are located seaside and guests can book a new villa on a private island in the British Virgin Islands. –Janeen Christoff, TravelPulse Managing Editor
For many families as soon as the school year calendar is published we begin to dream of escaping to the Caribbean for a winter vacation. What better way to come together as a family than to rent a spacious private villa on a tropical island? Throw in full trip planning and 24/7 concierge service and you have a formula for an exceptional vacation. Leading villa rental specialist WIMCO Villas taps into those desires with the publication of its annual “Top 10” list of new villas in the Caribbean.
“This year’s top 10 list includes a stunning modern villa in St Barts within walking distance of some of the best restaurants in the Caribbean, as well as two villas directly on the beach that’s regularly named the best in the Caribbean,” says Stiles Bennet, WIMCO’s president. “We also feature an extraordinary new villa on a private island in the BVI, where the local staff will take care of your every need.”
