Luxury villa hospitality management company BeautifulPlaces is celebrating its acquisition of McLaughlin Anderson Luxury Villas by offering travel agents a higher commission of 12.5 percent.
In June 2013, BeautifulPlaces acquired McLaughlin Anderson Luxury Villas, a 28-year-old company that was a pioneer of the villa vacation rental industry. McLaughlin Anderson has a collection of more than 100 posh villas, estates and vacation homes in the U.S. Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands and Grenada. The St. Thomas-based company, launched in 1985, spearheaded development of the villa rental business in the Caribbean and built a reputation for its quality products and service.
To qualify for the higher commission, travel agents must make a U.S. or British Virgin Island booking directly with BeautifulPlaces or McLaughlin Anderson Luxury Villas by August 31, 2013.
The offer is valid on new bookings only, for guest stays through June 30, 2014, including the December holiday period.
Available villas include:
- Ritz Carlton Residences, St. Thomas: Sumptuous two- and three-bedroom residences and world-class Ritz-Carlton service on one of St. Thomas' best white-sand beaches.
- A La Mer, St. John: A magnificent waterfront estate of impressive scale and elegance with nine bedrooms on Great Cruz Bay.
- 100 Pond Bay, Virgin Gorda: Six stunning modern suite pavilions, linked together like a string of pearls on a bluff, overlook Pond Bay and Savanna Bay and beyond.
- St. Bernard’s Hill House, Tortola: An eight-acre hilltop estate in a lush oasis setting with an amazing 300-degree bird's-eye view of the Virgins and endless azure sea and sky.
