5 Popular Caribbean Destinations To Purchase A Luxury Home

Home » Caribbean Destinations » Barbados » 5 Popular Caribbean Destinations To Purchase A Luxury Home

The recreational lifestyle, easy access to global social and business networks along with unique business opportunities make the Caribbean increasingly popular with ultra high net worth individuals. Currently, 1,155 ultra high net worth individuals live in the Caribbean. This number is expected to increase as luxury home prices are currently more favorable than in other markets popular with the super rich.

So which Caribbean destinations are currently popular? Well according to Rick Moeser, Senior Vice President at Christie’s International Real Estate, “based on recent sales activity, the top 5 Caribbean destinations for luxury home purchases are: 1) St. Barth’s, 2) Barbados, 3) Turks & Caicos, 4) Bahamas, and 5) Virgin Gorda, the second most populous of the British Virgin Islands.”

In terms of style, Moeser goes on to indicate that “barefoot luxury is in most demand. This can be a simple Balinese style (The Sanctuary) or sleek contemporary (VILLA SIX) or old school luxury (One Sandy Lane). ” Whatever the style, all the properties have luxuriously casual surrounding with hardwood floors and fine linens. Plus they have the amenities you would expect at a 5-star spa.

Beyond the style of property, Moeser further indicated that “most buyers are looking for luxury homes that they can rent when they are not enjoying the property themselves.”

With that in mind, below we list based on asking price, 5 luxury homes currently on the market in these top Caribbean destinations.
