Private beachfront Caribbean villas for rent by the week or month are increasingly popular with travelers during the coronavirus era. Leading villa rental company WIMCO Villas announces its top 10 new villas for the upcoming season, featuring villas in St Barts, Tulum, Barbados, Punta Cana, Turks & Caicos, Grand Cayman, Anguilla and St John.

Newport, R.I., Oct. 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With travelers seeking new ways to vacation safely in the coronavirus era, private villa rentals have emerged as one of the most requested options. As a leader in the luxury villa rental space, WIMCO Villas is continuously reviewing new properties around the world, and adding those that meet their high standards for quality and location. Today the company announced their top ten new villas for the upcoming season which span the four corners of the Caribbean basin from St. Barths to Tulum, and Barbados to Turks & Caicos.

Whats Trending

Beachfront properties continue to be the most requested feature WIMCO sees. Whether a two bedroom villas on Flamands beach in St. Barths, or a grand estate on Grace Bay beach in Turks & Caicos, demand for ocean-front rental properties continues to rise. In the past six months, weve collectively all been inside our homes for longer than ever before, said WIMCOs president, Stiles Bennet. When clients consider traveling, theyre now seeking an element that they cant find in their own backyard, and a beachfront villa fits that need. Villa Turtle Tail estate, a sprawling five-bedroom in Turks & Caicos, sits on the south coast of Providenciales, with its own private beach. Guests can spend the day snorkeling and paddle-boarding at their villas doorstep. Villa Palmier Royale, in St. Barths, offers its own private dock (and beachfront grill) steps from the beach at Marigot Bay, a marine sanctuary.

Desire for a Full Service Experience

In addition to beachfront properties, requests for fully-staffed and even all-inclusive rental homes continue to increase. WIMCO offers a robust selection of fully-staffed houses, with private chef and house hold staff at the guests disposal. Villa Prudence Bay in Barbados includes these amenities, with chefs tailoring their menus to guests individual wishes. Fully-staffed houses can be found on nearly every island in WIMCOs portfolio, including Mustique, Turks & Caicos, Anguilla, the Dominican Republic and more.

Growth in Demand for Extended Stays

Whats also new in 2020 is the duration guests are requesting. Prior to COVID, we fielded lots of requests for 4-7 night trips, adds Bennet. People were traveling with more frequency, but for fewer nights except for the holidays. Now, were seeing the two-week vacation regain its popularity, as well a high demand for longer stays, often totaling six weeks or more. Clients interested in spending a month or even several months in a Caribbean villa can contact WIMCO at to see available options.

Navigating Testing Requirements for Safe Travel

Most islands in the Caribbean require proof of a negative Covid-19 PCR test for entry and require that the traveler be tested no more than 3-5 days prior to arrival. Not only does this help ensure the safety of the local population, but it also protects everyone transiting through airports and airplanes, making international travel safer for all. WIMCOs villa specialists track the testing requirements for each Caribbean destination, and can point travelers to the best testing centers in any metro area to reduce the stress of pre-trip planning.
