What WIMCO Villa Rentals Clients Are Saying About Their Villa Vacations

About vacationing in the Caribbean...

St Barths, French West Indies

Just wanted to throw you a quick note of thanks to yourself and the entire WIMCO team for making our stay last week so easy and enjoyable. Villa KAI was stunning! It could not have been more perfect for what we were looking for in our vacation. The villa delivered everything you said it would from ultimate privacy, amazing views and the daily trade winds keeping us cooler (and no bugs!). Thank you for your help in identifying the perfect place to stay. The team in St. Barths was very accommodating to us upon arrival as well as when we had a small maintenance issue with the villa’s fridge not working. The problem was addressed immediately by our concierge, Moe, and the property manager. Please pass along our appreciation to them. So again, thanks to the WIMCO team for your help in making our trip all we wanted it to be. We are looking forward to returning to the island soon! - JM

Villa REP was spectacular and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The pictures don't do it justice. I'm looking forward to next year. - CF

Our trip was fantastic. We love the island. Villa WV MOZ was beautiful. What a great location. Chef Benard was great! You can watch the whales play/feed right off the patio. The Bucket Regatta went right by the villa. What a sight! We’ll be back! - CM

Villa WV ANC was incredible, the view was incredible and we liked being remote. We both liked Gouverneur Beach the most of the whole island and we for the most part stayed in the villa. We liked the safety of the island, no door locking, no worries at all. We liked that the dress was casual as well as all the people. It was a great place for our honeymoon. We also loved the shopping and the food. You were great with all your advice and made the trip easy to reserve and loved your recommendations. Our concierge, Antionne, was great, he was there for all of our needs and was very good at explaining our options and getting on reservations. I think he did an excellent job! The last day on our catamaran we met David and Billy who also rented through WIMCO and we went to their villa and had a blast after another couple got engaged on the catamaran. We liked that they were in St. Jean, with little driving to all the fun and shopping, so that is possible on our next visit. It is a great possibility we will be back and certainly use WIMCO! - CB

We were totally blown away by Villa AMA. It was every bit as luxurious as hoped for and its location afforded us one glorious sunset after another. When we next return to St. Barths, we will definitely seek to rent Villa WV AMA once again. - P

St Martin, French West Indies

Villa C JPM is UNBELIEVABLE!! We had the BEST time ever. It was better than the pictures on the Internet and the beaches are soooo beautiful. Everything went so smoothly. I can't wait to go back!! - CL

I can definitely understand the love people have for this island. It is beautiful!! My husband and I like to travel and have gone to several different island destinations. We both agreed there is no need to ever go anywhere else, St. Martin is the best. The people are friendly, it is easy to find your way around the island and there was never a time when you didn't feel safe. We had two issues and the property managers both had it handled with in a short time. We tried out about 5 different beaches and I would say my favorite was Baie Rouge. We ate dinner out several nights and very much enjoyed Pineapple Pete’s. Villa C FAR was exactly what we wanted. We were very happy with all the extras at the villa. The coolers, water toys, beach towels and the land line to the states. We couldn't have asked for more. I even talked with a couple on the beach and told them who we rented through. Hopefully you will hear from us again soon. - LA

Virgin Islands

It was a perfect trip. Villa VG SPY, the location, the weather – everything went smoothly and according to plan. Thanks to WIMCO, it was one of the best vacations we've ever had. - AV

I wanted to let you know we had a fabulous time in St. Thomas and Villa MA VEN was wonderful...especially the views and openness of the home. It was just perfect and a most memorable vacation! - PD

We know St. John fairly well, but never rented a villa before. It was an awesome experience and a great fit for our family of grown children and spouses. We appreciated the conveince of the location, the stunning views, the private bedrooms/bathrooms, the gathering areas in the villa and the gorgouse pool area! It was a perfect fit for us and we would love to repeat our vacation when possible. We would highly recommend Villa CT GRA and WIMCO. - RF

Mustique

Mustique was the perfect destination for a honeymoon; a paradise island of privacy, tranquility and relaxation. Villa MV BLU was Heaven! When can I go back? - KB

MV PLA is one of the most beautiful houses we've ever seen. Staff made the experience incredible. My wife said that it was the best week of her life. - RS

Barbados

I'm writing to let you know what a fabulous trip we had, everyone loved Villa AA LMH and it was a wonderful and relaxing family vacation. Thanks so much for all of your help and follow-up on the cars, transfers, crib, food list, and suggestions. We adored the fishpot by the way. Thank you again and I look forward to speaking with you next year!

We had a fabulous time at Villa BS DUD on Gibbs Beach. The Villa was lovely and the pool and beach were perfect. All staff charming. No complaints. - K

"Heaven on Earth!" From the moment we entered the stunning tranquility of Nelson Gay, any apprehension we may have had about renting a villa from only photos and online comments were banished. The grounds are mature, lush, and so welcoming, the pool gorgeous, the beach quiet and relaxing. Sun and shade always available. The house is spectacular, rooms cool and relaxing- the bedroom air conditioners excellent, beds so comfy. We ate all meals outside, cannot say enough about the food - breakfast prepared to order - who knew French toast could be so good - lunches and dinners absolutely delicious (menu determined by guests and chef upon arrival, and easy to adjust as groceries are purchased daily (we ended up requesting flying fish a second time), food allergies/preferences no problem. Healthy, fresh - we did not gain weight! There was even coffee ready when the early risers were in need. We had one meal out, at a highly rated restaurant, ended up canceling other reservations since the food we were treated to at NG was so much better! Afternoon cocktails so lovely and customized. The house manager introduced the staff as soon as we arrived, clearly describing the responsibilities of each. Knowing we would have a staff of 7 was a bit daunting in theory (we have a staff of 0), but all were charming, friendly (as we found everyone we met in Barbados to be), efficient, hardworking, thoughtful, and so comfortable to be with. Chris took us out to feed the “resident” turtle most mornings- an amazing experience to be able to feed and touch such a majestic creature. The owner of the house called to speak with us while we were there, genuinely interested in our thoughts, he wanted to be sure we were having a wonderful time. Decadent relaxation - would return in a heartbeat! - PK

About vacationing in Europe...

Italy

The pictures do not do Villa BRV GEG justice. It is a 15 on a scale of 10. Every bedroom was a gem, all marble baths. Every time you turned a corner it was another Architectural Digest moment. Absolutely exquisite. - AS

We had a super time at Villa BRV ISA. The staff there was very attentive and we have no hesitation in recommending Wimco to friends and associaties. - JC

Our clients said Villa BRV PAL exceeded our expectations. The Villa, the pool and the location were PERFECT! Everything went smoothly and the owner of the Villa was a great help. – NA

Villa SAL SOR was better than expected! It was beyond our wildest dreams! The view is unbelievable and there are wonderful Rosemary, Thyme and Artichoke bushes throughout the garden. - LM

Just a quick note to let you know that Villa HII SAN and the staff exceeded my highest of expectations. The property was superb, with over 500 olive trees, and what my son called a mini zoo. Peacocks, hens, roosters and a beautiful 13 year old, huge Italian sheep dog named Lotario, whom the children checked on every day. The nearest town was wonderful with great markets and shops. It made for an exceptional family reunion! Of all my years living in Europe and traveling there often, I can honestly say this was a trip of a lifetime, and the family all concur! Thank you for all your help. - GM

France

Thank you so very much for arranging the villa (YNF BAI) in France. We had a marvelous time! Mike and his staff were terrific! - SA

Everything went well for us, we loved YNF LES and the location in St. Tropez and may end up going back there perhaps. It was a good trip! - JC

We had a delightful time! YNF FAU is fantastic! Decorated like my NYC apartment so it felt like being home! My favorite things about the apartment are the decor/artwork and the layout (spacious with living separate from bedrooms). The location is perfect and the concierge Clara is so nice and professional. She welcomed us and truly made us feel so comfortable being there. Thank you for helping us find our home away from home in Paris. I'll contact you as soon as we know our plans for our next visit to Paris. - E

Mykonos, Greece

Great place! Great Villa (LIV SP3)! It's a terrific place. I highly recommend it for folks who do not want to stay in the city. Our concierge, Takis, was very helpful. Honestly, we have zero complaints. The unit is very clean and the owner personally cleaned the pool at night. The cleaning service did fantastic job too. I hope they liked us too of course. We were pretty tame and tried to keep things clean ourselves. Hopefully that's the report you will get re: us. Mykonos is beautiful. Great trip. Fun week! Hard not to have a good time, really. Thank you very much for all you did to help us out. We really appreciate it. – TM

Villa LIV GRA is a large 6 bedroom house on southwest part of island. I loved the house, as did my whole family. Worked perfectly. Was cool and comfortable for all 12 people. Beautiful views and sunsets. Nice kitchen for cooking. Great breezes. Loved the private pool/terrace area. The chef cooked one night for us, which we all enjoyed, and Sara and Takis, our concierges, took great care of us. - TL
