Traveling with Young Children…
2 BR, Lorient
WV CHL, 2 Bedroom, St. Barths (Lorient)
Have two children under the age of 5? When kids wake up early, you’ll be steps from the gentle water of Lorient beach to build sandcastles and wade in the warm water. Enjoy lunches outside on the large deck, watching the surfers in the distance where the beach breaks.
1 Bedroom, Marigot
WV DRE, 1 Bedroom, St. Barths (Marigot)
Marigot, a small cove located in between Pointe Milou and Grand Cul de Sac, is a gem of a beach. Truly ideal for small children with its protected corners, the sea here has a different shade of green-blue that you can’t peel your eyes away from. At this one bedroom villa, you’ll have a dock that extends onto Marigot Bay, as well as a private pool.
2 Bedroom, Lorient
WV EZE, 2 Bedroom, St. Barths (Lorient)
At this peaceful two bedroom, bask in a warm breeze from Lorient beach, an ideal spot for young children. Across the road you’ll find a patisserie baking daily croissants and pastries, perfect for cozy breakfasts en famille.
Traveling with Little Adventurers…
3 Bedroom, Ocean Point
IE TWE, 3 Bedroom, Turks and Caicos (Ocean Point)
Located on the west side of the island of Providenciales, this Turks and Caicos villa is great for families. With the swim deck in front of the house (kayaks included), plus a tennis court across the street, kids will have a blast staying active.
(WV HEN SOU)
4 Bedroom, St. Jean Beach
HEN SOU, 4 Bedroom, St. Barths (St Jean Baie)
You may just be in the ideal location at this villa. Perched above the quieter section of St. Jean Baie, a private dock allows kids to swim to shore, or snorkel around the villa’s cove. Plus, you’re in walking distance to Village St. Jean with its beaches and restaurants, including the best pizzeria (and family-favorite) Andy’s Hideaway.
2 Bedroom, Terres Basses
C LAN, 2 Bedroom, St. Martin (Terres Basses)
Have a budding Federer or Sharapova on your hands? This two bedroom villa has its own tennis court and gym. Whether you swim poolside, practice your volleys, or take the 3 minute drive to two nearby beaches, you’ll have plenty to do in St. Martin. (Did we mention it’s a direct flight from New York, too?)
4 Bedroom, Beachside the Baths
MAV SOL, 4 Bedroom, Virgin Gorda (The Baths)
If you’re looking for a truly exotic and stunning getaway, but love the idea of a quick flight, think about a family trip to Virgin Gorda. The sand in front of this beachfront property is actually white, and the water unbelievably clear. Take advantage of the amazing snorkeling available in the Baths region, and have fun practicing your strokes at the villa’s lighted tennis court. Night tennis, anyone?
6 Bedroom, Lockrum
RIC COY, 6 Bedroom, Anguilla (Lockrum)
Anguilla is a great island for extended families traveling together because there are so many large villas. Not to mention that the food is world-class, and the beaches are remarkably clear and picture-perfect. This villa has views of St. Martin, and has a great outdoor area for lunches under the sun.
5 Bedroom, Colombier
WV BWH, 5 Bedroom, St. Barths (Colombier)
With a view over stunning Colombier, this villa is minutes from shopping and dining in town, and lunches and boogie boarding at Flamands beach. You’ll catch amazing sunsets and sunrises here (for the early rises out there). Kids will love hiking down to Colombier and ‘discovering’ its beach, which is only accessible by foot or by boat. At night, teens can see live music in town, or the whole family can snuggle up in this villa’s home theater.
4 Bedroom, Sandy Lane
RL ALI, 4 Bedroom, Barbados
Barbados is famed for its amazing service, friendliness and hospitality, and so large family groups will truly feel like they’re on vacation here. Villa Alila has beautifully landscaped gardens, and its own private cabana at Sandy Lane Beach.
