Caribbean

Beautiful view at Pigeon Island

Cap Maison, St. Lucia

I just returned from a weeklong stay on the exotic Caribbean island of St. Lucia. Cap Maison, a boutique, Mediterranean-styled property located on the north end of the island, was home for the first few days of my trip. This intimate Virtuoso hide-away is ideal for honeymooners or couples wanting a quiet and romantic setting.

British Virgin Islands views

Rosewood Little Dix Bay, Virgin Gorda

I just spent a magical week with my family at Rosewood Little Dix Bay on the island of Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands.  It’s one of the Caribbean’s most respected and loved properties with one of the most spectacular settings I’ve seen anywhere in the world.  Laurence Rockefeller created this little slice of heaven 50 years ago, and the owners and management team continue to carry on his vision for the hotel – one of quiet elegance and harmony with nature.

Sunrise Beach, Half Moon

Half Moon, Jamaica

I’ve just returned from a Thanksgiving get-away with my family to Half Moon in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Half Moon has been a “slam dunk” for my clients for many years. Truly everyone comes home raving about this property, so I was excited to take a fresh look after having not visited for a few years.

Bahamas Family Adventure: Atlantis, Elbow Cay and One & Only Ocean Club

My three week journey in the Bahamas began on Paradise Island. First stop: the mega popular and high energy resort Atlantis. I’ve sent countless clients here over the past several years but had never personally experienced this ultimate Caribbean playground. It did not disappoint! Atlantis delivered on all that it promises to its guests. This …
