Vacation Ritz Carlton Style

 this could be your viewWhen you come to a beautiful island, you just want to relax and play in the sand and turquoise water.  No worries about making beds, cleaning dishes, cooking, or finding a place to eat out all the time with enough room for you and the kids. 

Welcome to the Ritz Carlton Club Suites.  At the Ritz Club Suites you have two bedrooms – in the master suite, a king size bed and in the other bedroom are two queens.  Twice a day maid service, and three meal presentations a day so you dont have to find a restaurant for every meal.  If you do find yourself with leftovers or if you feel like cooking, there is a bistro kitchen in the unit.  There is even a washer and dryer since you will be staying for two weeks at a time in the winter. 

Master bedroom

Just imagine being steps from one of the most beautiful beaches on St Thomas.  When you wake up in the morning, your view is of palm trees, white sand, and water so blue and clear you can almost make out the fish swimming in the shallows from your room.

The two main property mgt. services are…

Of the two main services a property management company provides, the first is called ‘keeping your calender’.  This simply means the company will book people to stay in your villa.  It is a bit more complicated than that though.  They will keep open any dates YOU want, make sure two families are not arriving at the same time, arrange and collect payment, and arrange any of the optional services listed in the last post.

The second main service is maintainance of the actual property.  This can include regular maintenience such as gardening, maid service (once daily, once weekly), pool service, etc.  It will also include emergency services such as plumbing, cistern, septic, electrical, storm shutters, etc.  This is a very important service especially if the owner does not live on island.  It means there is only one number for the owner or a paying guest to call if a problem or an ememrgency arises. 

Another option is sometimes available because of the way most houses are built in the Virgin Islands.  Many homes here are built with an extra apartment.  This apartment can be rented out, but it is often used as a residence for a handy man (or couple) free of charge in exchange for their services.  If the problem is too big, the handy man makes the call to a professional.

How many services the management company provides and to what degree will determine the cost.  Check around for different prices and services provided, but look for recommendations or referals.  Remember, you may not be on island and you have to be able to trust the company or individual with your home and all of its contents.
