About the Caribbean - Sandy beaches, clear blue waters, colonial ruins, and tropical cocktails: all this and more awaits you in the Caribbean! It’s not just one island destination, but an archipelago of islands! Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Barbados, Bahamas, St. Martin - these are only a few of the amazing and varied isles worth visiting. While each place has its own set of charms, the island’s accommodations are an equally enticing draw. If you’re ready for a change of pace with the lodgings you choose, Owner Direct Vacation Rentals will help you immerse yourself in the laid-back tropical lifestyle of your island of choice. Charming vacation rentals, historic houses, luxurious villa rentals, full-service homes, and all-inclusive condo rentals all have something uniquely Caribbean to offer. These accommodations are perfect for exploring a wide range of destinations, with each island boasting its own unique flavor and attractions.
Where to Stay & Why - Enjoy your freedom and privacy by staying in villa rentals that offer amenities your family will need, plus you’ll save even more by booking a vacation rental than paying for multiple rooms in a hotel.

Feel at home as you find cozy living areas, fully equipped kitchens, and spacious dining rooms inside these lodgings. Not to mention everyone can have their own bed or even room! Many of the vacation homes include a staff of private chef, butler, and housekeeper to take care of your needs while you lounge on the beach. Private pools are also a regular sight and terraces where you can enjoy meals and drinks while watching the sunset.
What to See & Do - The Caribbean is one of the best places in the world to go diving, snorkeling, and relaxing at one of the many beaches. But there’s more to the Caribbean than just that. Head a little further inland and discover historical cities and mountainous areas with great trekking opportunities. You can also travel between the islands by ferry or boat.
Where to Eat & Drink - The Caribbean serves some of the world’s most unique and vibrant dishes. Explore St. Martin, known as “the culinary capital of the Caribbean”, which is home to over 400 restaurants. Jamaica and Puerto Rico have local dishes that are rooted in tradition. St. Barts or Anguilla has a food scene spanning from upscale neo-Creole cuisine to European and Asian fusion dishes. Some of the famous places to grab drinks and party the night away are Rick’s Cafe in Jamaica, Foxy’s Tamarind Bar & Restaurant, La Gloriette, and Naked Fisherman.
How to Get Here & Getting Around - The region is best served by Miami International Airport, as well as major Canadian airports. From there, you can travel between islands by plane or ferries.
When to Go - Generally, the best time to visit is from December to April, but it will still depend on your interests, budget, and the island of your choosing.
