No service charge. Ever.
We have never charged our valued guests, and the equally-valued travel agents who loyally book with us, a fee to reserve any of our properties. Never have, never will. Others do. It's just against our philosophy and the way we do business. Period.
Familiarity with Properties.
We are personally familiar with the properties we offer. We have had the pleasure of staying in them, or we conduct routine site inspections so that we can share our first-hand observations with you. We offer suggestions to the owners and managers to ensure that guests have the best experience possible when staying at their vacation homes. As such, we can guide you (and your travel agent, where applicable) in your selection process. Being able to compare a variety of options is where experience counts most, and that is one area where our company excels.
Knowledge of Destinations.
We have been to most of the Bahamian and Caribbean islands, big and small, and - in some cases - have worked in the hospitality industry on several of them. We have also traveled throughout Latin America, Europe and the USA. What this means to our clients is that we can differentiate between Port Antonio and Ocho Rios, Abaco and Exuma, Santorini and Mykonos, Sint Maarten and Saint Martin, Scrub Island and Virgin Gorda, Placencia and Ambergris Caye, Holetown and St. Lawrence Gap, Cozumel and Cancun et al.
We believe that it's just as important to choose the right island, country, region or area as it is to select the appropriate villa, condominium, apartment or private island for your needs, and this is why we devote a considerable portion of our website to destination information that will help prospective guests in their trip planning.
We can offer you properties you won't find anywhere else.
Some of our clients (such as the British Royal Family) are very particular about renting their vacation homes. Others are friends and acquaintances who don't make their vacation homes available on the open market. They trust us, and we have never let them down. Everyone wins.
Our prices tend to be lower.
We're a small company and we've built a wonderful rapport with our home owner clients and their property managers over the years. Our relationship with them is direct - no middle person - so our prices tend to be lower because we don't have to pay a whole bevy of people up the ladder in the process. Enough said.
We're active in the Travel, Tourism and Hospitality Industry.
There is something to be said about having been on all sides of the travel industry table, from hotel sales and marketing to tour operation/wholesaler management to resort home ownership. We've held executive positions or been board members of travel industry organizations for more than 20 years. We've played an active role supplemen
