My Favourite Destinations

"I have literally been to each destination we feature and I must say it is very hard to pick a favourite.

I would highly recommend the British Virgin Islands for a couple looking for a honeymoon or for those who love to be on the water and explore many islands all in the one trip.'

If you prefer to be with a group of friends and want to spend a lot of time at the villa with staff included then Jamaica is top of the list.

Another favourite place of mine is Barbados where you can find amazing beaches, villas and the best fine dining restaurants.

If you want something totally private and relaxing with days spent on the beach than Anguilla is a great choice and my ultimate favourite place is Jumby Bay Resort in Antigua.

What Our Guests Say About Linda

"Dear Linda and Julie,

Our feet are firmly on British soil having had a very special holiday at Westhaven with our friends, our children, and our grandchildren.

It is true to say that without the huge backup we received from you both before the holiday and during it many things would have gone wrong and we would have been much less relaxed.

Whether booking the car (which was difficult enough),giving us full local information, arranging restaurants etc.etc etc you could not have made it easier for us or more enjoyable.

I cannot remember a time when I did not receive a reply to an email or query within a few minutes of sending it and this included New Years Eve when you, Linda, were just off to a party!!!

Many replies were at GMT bedtime such that I wondered where you were only to learn it was Ireland!! The same applied to you. Julie, and I don’t think you missed a trick!

Interestingly, your very quick response landed the booking in the first place because my original enquiry went to three agents and you were by far the quickest off the mark. You are an excellent team and I could not have wanted for more.

Thank you both. Your help and efficiency extended to viewing villas for next year. Undoubtedly we will return and we have a list of the villas we would like to take to take.

Again, because of your enthusiasm and help we will rent through you and only you.

With kindest regards, Robert"
