Expert Review

Vacation villas have a reputation as hideaways for nose-in-the-air moguls. But the secret of villa rental is that they are incredibly cost-effective. Travel with friends or family, and suddenly a three-bedroom beachside vacation home can bring even the priciest destination within reach. Plus, villas often boast full kitchens, daily housekeeping, private pools, and sometimes extras like workout rooms and tennis courts.

Wimco Villas & Hotels has 1,600 properties throughout the Caribbean, from modest one-bedroom cottages in Anguilla to multibedroom megavillas in Turks and Caicos. Listings are refreshingly honest, noting when a pool or room is small or when there's too much noise. Wimco rents out over 250 magnificent properties on St. Barts, including a heavenly hillside villa once owned by Liz Claiborne (Wimco's villa VGM). Another bonus: Wimco's services, such as airport transfers, restaurant reservations, babysitters, and private chefs, are free of charge. 2008 Smart Luxury Award winner

Great Value Alternative: Rooms at family-run Village St. Jean on St. Barts have stellar views. www.villagestjeanhotel.com
