McLaughlin Anderson Luxury Villas works with more than 130 Caribbean properties, including many on Tortola, Grenada, St. John, and St. Thomas—the company's home base.
Villas of Distinction covers Mexico and the Caribbean, as well as Hawaii, Italy, France, and Portugal. The firm was recently purchased by the California-based travel agency Creative Leisure International, so it has the resources to plan your vacation from start to finish.
