The Caribbean is famous for its beaches. So much so that it has some of the world’s best and most pristine white sandy beaches caressing its gorgeous shores. But what if you could stay on one of worlds best beaches in one of the world’s best beachfront Caribbean villas? Well, I am delighted to let you know it’s possible and in fact, we have handpicked the most exclusive locations for you.
And even though at first glance they may seem expensive, when you break it down per room or by occupancy the prices for
luxury vacation rentals often compare much more favourably to some of the five-star hotels in the region. And of course, you get so much more for your buck. Much more space, the privacy to do what you want when you want, and you won’t have to compete with your fellow vacationers for the best spot on the beach or for some beach beds because the beachfront and the beds are all yours for your entire stay! And the staff are all yours too.
In these beachfront Caribbean Rentals, there will be no desperate waving of hands trying to get the waiter to give you your cheque or feelings of neglect because you are put at the back of the restaurant instead of beside the view. The view is all yours, and it’s always a seafront one!! It doesn’t get better than this.
If you think you won’t get all the bells and whistles that come with a hotel, you can forget that notion because most of these beachfront Caribbean villas have chefs, butlers, pools, gyms and spas. You will be able to walk, jog, swim, snorkel, scuba dive and fish just steps away from your door. All you have to do is settle into your secluded paradise as you unwind, relax and enjoy the beauty and the gorgeous Caribbean sun.
Picking our favourite villa in Turks and Caicos was extremely hard. We have over 80 Beachfront Caribbean rentals to choose from in our portfolio, and they are all stunning! But
Hawksbill Villa on Grace Bay is particularly special. It is an exquisite 8-bedroom beachfront mansion set in over 4 acres of its own land and has very extensive beach frontage on Grace Bay. Grace Bay Beach has been voted the worlds best beach many times and by many different reliable sources such as the Huffington Post.
Whilst most beach front villa rentals are set back from the beach, or located above the beach, the Hawksbill terrace and pool area are sitting right on the beach, so you cannot physically get any closer. The views of the gorgeous crystal-clear turquoise waters abound from all corners of the house and are captivating from the slightly elevated views of the Great room and master bedroom.
A stay at Hawksbill comes complete with a spectacular free-form swimming pool, an impressive cinema room, a media room full of games, a floodlit tennis court, a mini basketball court and a fully equipped gymnasium and all the non-motorized waters sports facilities known to man!
Last but not least there is a full team of professionals including a Butler, Property Manager, Chef, Housekeeper and Groundman to look after and anticipate your every need.
Villa Ella in St Barts is definitely one of our favourite Beachfront Caribbean Villas. The location on Flamand’s Beach is utterly divine. You are steps from the sea and almost next door to the gorgeous Cheval Blanc Isle de France Hotel. You get the best of both worlds. The privacy and space of your own beautiful home and you can also stroll along anytime to the restaurant and bar at the hotel.
Another one of the islands best restaurants at the Taiwana Hotel is also a short stroll along the beach from Villa Ella.
One of the wonderful delights of staying in this elegant beachfront Caribbean villas is you also get to visit my personal favourite beach in the world called Colombier beach. It is a short 30-minute hike from the villa along a gorgeous cliff top with spectacular views. The only way to get to Colombier Beach is by foot or boat, so it is always virtually deserted. If you go early enough in the morning, you will have a piece of paradise all to yourself.
Villa Ella has 8 beautiful bedrooms many of which embrace the panoramic sea views. The décor of the villa is exquisite yet encompasses a simplistic touch. There is a large private pool and an expansive outdoor terrace where you can enjoy the view, have a barbeque, spend time with loved ones or even just to read your favorite book. It is the type of place where the pressures of life will melt away under the sun and where you can instantly relax, enjoying your exclusive family vacation.
GREENSLEEVES VILLA – GIBBS BEACH – BARBADOS
Greensleeves in Barbados is a unique beachfront Caribbean Rentals as it located on not one but two of the best beaches on the island. This exquisite Barbados Villa sits on a slightly elevated land promontory or headland. To the north is the beautiful Gibbs beach which is one of the quietest beaches on the island and to the south is Reeds Bay which is one of our favorite beaches. Greensleeves holds its vibrant character for the fact that half the house is in the Parish of Saint James and the other is in the parish of Saint Peter!
Greensleeves is a virtual haven of tropical peace and beauty. You enter this outstanding villa via huge Mongolian Temple doors. An intricately crafted wooden bridge carries you over a gorgeous Japanese water garden that is brimming with colourful flowers and Koi fish.

Fortlands Point is one of the only Caribbean beachfront rentals that has its own private cove. It is also one of the world’s most exquisite 7-bedroom beachfront home. This lavish vacation rental sits on its own private promontory of land and consequently has sea views from three sides of the house.
Of course, the décor is exquisite, and the gardens and private pool area are equally luxurious, but there are two things that make Fortlands Point extra special. The first is the fact that it has its own private cove called Discovery Cove. The sand is powdery soft with a white sugar fine feel, and the waters are crystal clear and calm.
The second is the team of professionals that look after you during your stay, who are among the best in the Caribbean. You will have your own private Chef, Butler, Housekeeper and laundress to ensure your every whim is cared for. Every single one of our customers returning from a stay at Fortlands Point always mentions the staff, and it is also for this reason the villa gets to see its guest more than once.
Amenities of the home include access to 3 beaches, complimentary non-motorized water sports, a fitness room, squash court, a putting green, an infinity edge swimming pool and a hot tub. It is no wonder that Fortlands point was named as “One of the best Villas in the World” by Islands Magazine.
