The New Year countdown has officially begun and Island Villas is looking forward to an exciting 2020 for Caribbean real estate.

According to the latest Virtuoso® Luxe Report, multigenerational travel remains the top trend for the coming year. This bodes well for Barbados as the island has long been a preferred family holiday destination attracting long-stay and repeat visitors. In fact, many repeat visitors become Barbados villa owners investing in properties on island and developing strong community ties here.

Traveling around the world with parents, siblings, kids, grandkids, and assorted family members can be an enriching assortment of shared experiences. (S. Burnell,

When traveling with family of varying ages it is important to identify the perfect place to stay, whether it be a villa to purchase or rent, and to decide on the ideal tour and activity itinerary.

Zazen is great for group getaways, especially for visitors interested in surfing, hiking and other outdoor activities in Barbados.

Of course, no vacation would be complete without activities designed for everyone on the trip. The Concierge at Island Villas specializes in creating memorable experiences. For the romantics, consider dinner and a moonlight sail on a Catamaran; hike the hills on the rugged East Coast or kitesurf the South Coast waves if you are feeling adventurous; or sample gourmet organic and farm to table fare if you are looking for a Bajan foodie getaway. Barbados is truly a year round destination with sporting events (sailing, motorsports, polo, golf), culinary festivals, cultural celebrations (Crop Over Festival), and so much more happening throughout the year.
