Searching for Vacation Homes for Sale in the Caribbean?
So, you love visiting the Caribbean. More often than not you spend your vacation in the islands. But, you would prefer to stay in your own place rather than a hotel and you’re looking at investing in a vacation property in the Caribbean…
If this chimes with how you feel about the Caribbean, then you’re not alone. In 2016 the Caribbean welcomed more overseas visitors than ever before. According to data gathered by the various tourist boards, 28.7 million overseas visitors flocked to the region last year. Rather than staying in a hotel, more and more regular repeat visitors to the Caribbean prefer to have their own vacation home in the Caribbean – a place to enjoy Winter holidays or Spring escapes year in, year out.
Caribbean holiday homes vary as much as the vacations themselves. Some visitors choose to pack in as much time as possible on the golf course, while some prefer to explore the underwater reefs that lie off shore. Others prefer to do almost nothing at all and spend their days relaxing in the sunshine or at the spa.
However you choose to spend your holidays in the Caribbean, why not find a vacation home that’s suited to indulging your interests. From golf villas to beach houses, family-friendly resort properties to quiet sanctuaries away from the hustle and bustle, here are 7 of the best Caribbean holiday homes for sale for every kind of tropical break.
For golfers, the Caribbean is a dream vacation destination. There are world-class golf courses across the region, including Green Monkey in Barbados, Baker’s Bay in The Bahamas and Teeth of the Dog in the Dominican Republic. One island that is consistently included in lists of the Caribbean’s best golfing destinations is Nevis. The island is home to one of the Caribbean’s most celebrated golf courses – a Robert Trent Jones II designed 18-hole championship golf course. This par-71, 6,766-yard course stretches from the sea to the lush rainforest with views of the majestic Nevis Peak. These brand new luxury homes are located just footsteps from the course. You can almost roll out of bed to begin a game of golf. Forming part of a world-class resort, the owners of these homes also enjoy use of the nearby beach club, spa, tennis courts and restaurants, so there is plenty for non-golfing family members to do while you tee off. Avid golfers, what more could you want from a Caribbean vacation home?
Your Very Own Diving Base
The Caribbean islands (and the Central American countries bordering the Caribbean Sea) offer some of the best diving in the world. Belize, for example, is home to the Belize Barrier Reef, which, after Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, is the second longest reef in the world. The Bahamas is ideal for cave diving, Bonaire’s 60 dives sites are perfect for shore diving and Virgin Gorda is one of the world’s best locations for wreck diving. For visibility, the Cayman Islands is hard to beat and one of the Caribbean’s top dive vacation destinations. Grand Cayman has it all – wall diving, wreck diving and shallow diving at Stingray City – and this condo for sale in Grand Cayman would make the perfect base for regular diving vacations. Located within a dedicated dive resort in Grand Cayman’s East End, there’s an on site PADI 5 Star IDC dive center offering world-class training and daily boat trips to many of the island’s 55 dive sites.

The Caribbean is literally strewn with so many stunning beaches, it is almost impossible to pick out one as the best place to buy a property for vacations by the beach. There are countless beautiful beaches in the region and they vary so considerably, not only in shade – from the brilliant white sands of Grace Bay beach in the Turks & Caicos island to the dramatic black sand beaches of Dominica and St Vincent – but also in atmosphere. Some are busy and lively, others are quiet and secluded.

If you’re looking to buy a holiday home in a family-friendly destination, there are plenty of options to choose from.
