Next Vacation, Forget the Hotel – Rent a Vacation Villa Instead

Author: Derek Grayson

Are you ready to take your vacation time to the next level? Forget the humdrum mass experience of all-inclusive resorts and mammoth hotels, the newest trend in travel is renting a private vacation villa. 

The Caribbean is the hot spot for villa rentals and St. Thomas in the U.S. virgin Islands, a United States territory, is a preferred destination for Caribbean villa rentals. It’s close to the United States and Canada,  with lots of direct flights – and the language is English. Plus in the capital city of Charlotte Amalie, there’s terrific duty-free shopping!


Charlotte Amalie offers lots of vacation activities with fishing, golfing, parasailing, shopping, scuba diving, submarine rides, hiking, sightseeing; and some of the world’s most famous beaches, like Magen’s Bay, are only a few minutes away. The island of St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands has a history that spans hundreds of years. While visiting St. Thomas you will find hints of European, North American and the Caribbean cultures all around you. 

Picture yourself sipping drinks with your family or friends around the villa’s private 18’x40′ swimming pool and terrace with one of the most spectacular views in St. Thomas. Compare the luxury of a breathtaking private pool at your villa rental with the typical hotel resort pool struggle for a chaise lounge while being bombarded with someone else’s kids squealing as they canonball into the crowded pool….  where would you rather be?

If you enjoy your bells and whistles at home, why give them up when on vacation? Most vacation villas come fully loaded with high definition large-screen 55′ TV with Surround Sound, DVD players and collection of movies and music, a safe,  cable tv,  a state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen,  a stainless steel gas barbeque, and the list goes on.

A private  villa rental in St. Thomas  when shared with three other couples can end up costing less than staying in a standard hotel for a week. With its four spacious bedroom suites, the villa is the perfect setting for a family vacation, family reunion or vacation with your best friends.  

Isn’t it time you upgraded your vacation to something special?
