The highly vetted vacation rentals in the Villas of Distinction portfolio are hand-picked for their “distinction” factor – whether it’s an incredible view, state-of-the-art amenities, or a gorgeous infinity pool, all have a special feature that sets them apart from the pack. And with over a thousand luxury properties available in the Caribbean alone, travelers have no shortage of vacation options to choose from.
One of the latest villa additions in the Caribbean is Sea Dream, a three-bedroom home set on a hillside overlooking the sea in St. Martin. The villa is perfectly situated between two beaches: picturesque Happy Bay Beach on one side and laid-back Friar’s Bay Beach (and its two beachside restaurants) on the other. All three bedroom suites feature king-size beds and en-suite bathrooms – perfect for three couples traveling together – and the private plunge pool and spacious covered terrace boast breathtaking views of the sunset.

Also just-added in the Caribbean is Five Little Cays, a four-bedroom retreat in Turks and Caicos with its own private path to a white-sand beach. The villa’s beachfront plunge pool offers dramatic views of five uninhabited islands dotting the seascape, and two covered pergolas provide plenty of space for outdoor dining and lounging within reach of the beach. Guests can take swim out to the edge of a nearby bank to try their hand at catching lobster, conch, and fish for dinner or take the villa’s complimentary kayaks out for a spin in the turquoise water.

While not a new addition, nine-bedroom Greensleeves Estates is a beloved property in Barbados that gathers rave reviews from its guests; one reviewer describes the house as “phenomenal” and the staff “as good as it gets.” Superbly located between two renowned white-sand beaches (Gibbs Bay to the north and Reeds Bay to the south), Greensleeves includes a private chef, butlers, housekeepers, maids, laundresses, and a property manager. Its spacious grounds are full of surprises: a sunken pool bar in the center of a free-form pool, a children’s wing with a jungle gym, a fully equipped home cinema, a landscaped park with a private tennis court…and that’s only the beginning.
