Private Villa on a Private Island…Jumby Bay, Antigua

No matter how you define luxury, it’s hard to imagine anything more luxurious than a week spent on a private island in the Caribbean! More specifically, in a three-bedroom villa, your every whim and desire will be catered to as you gaze at the azure sea. Since you will be the guest of an owner of Jumby Bay, ALL of your resort charges, from the outstanding food to all beverages (even those for grownups!), to spa services and activities, will be discounted. Don’t take our word for how over-the-top this experience is, ask one of the people who have been there before! But watch out, because they’ll probably be bidding against you!

Great to book with friends, it is available for one week during the months of March, April, or May 2020.
