We highlight villas as a truly cost-effective alternative for large families and groups, and a luxurious alternative for people who value space and privacy.

Since CARIBIQUE listed its first villa based in the Turks and Caicos Islands two years ago, the company’s portfolio has grown to include almost 180 villas in 16 of the most popular Caribbean island destinations. CARIBIQUE’s impeccably managed listings have been so popular with villa owners and renters that an additional 40 properties have recently lined up to be added to the site.

Owner Carl McBurnie has been working closely with villa owners to meet the growing demand while paying close attention to the preferences of his villa renters. He says, “Over time, we have noticed some interesting trends related to the popularity of each destination as well as the architectural styles and interior features guests are most interested in. We’re always expanding our portfolio with this kind of information in mind, as our goal is not only to offer the most villas, but to offer the properties that best suit the needs of our clients.”

In addition to growing their client base, CARIBIQUE Villa Rentals has become well-established as a resource for anyone with an interest in Caribbean life and culture. Since their introduction to Twitter about six months ago, CARIBIQUE has amassed a community of over 2,500 engaged followers who tune in for a daily mix of Caribbean news and events, authentic recipes from the islands, tourism statistics, high resolution images of exquisite beach locations and advice about planning the ideal Caribbean vacation.

“In terms of our social media presence, we have two main messages. From a thought leadership perspective, we have always promoted the whole of the Caribbean with all of its beauty and diversity. We also highlight villas as a truly cost-effective alternative for large families and groups, and a luxurious alternative for people who value space and privacy.”

Innovation has also been a main focus for CARIBIQUE over the past two years. McBurnie, an accomplished web designer, is dedicated to perfecting CARIBIQUE’s intuitive website which showcases their beautiful portfolio of Caribbean villas using thousands of high resolution photos.

“There are a lot of travel websites out there so we aim to be refreshingly different and offer our clients a personal touch they can’t get at one of the big corporate booking sites,” explains McBurnie. “We were first to offer unlimited large photo galleries and this has driven improvements by a number of large competitors who have taken note of our success in inspiring vacation seekers.”

“We’ve had a fantastic first two years and look forward to what the future holds for Caribique,” McBurnie concluded.


CARIBIQUE Villa Rentals is owned and operated by CARIBIQUE Ltd., a company in the “Beautiful by Nature” Turks and Caicos Islands.
