“Changes in Latitude, Changes in Attitude.” It’s a favorite song by island-lover Jimmy Buffet, but it’s also very true. Sometimes you need to get the heck out of the rat-race and realize there’s more to life than making money or slaving away seven days a week. How about a Caribbean beachfront vacation rental homes getaway?
If COVID taught us anything, we found that having our private space means a lot. More and more travelers are turning to vacation home rentals because they not only provide that privacy, but also a true sense of a home-away-from-home.
Add to that saving money by preparing some vacation meals yourself, along with the options of a family or group of friends all staying together in one place and making lots of memories, and VRBOs become a preferred accommodation.
We’ve pulled together some Caribbean beachfront vacation rentals you’ll fall in love with (and possibly never want to leave). But there is one main criterion we followed on these places in paradise. They must be located ON THE BEACH. Not a five-minute walk to the beach, across the street, or with beach views, but on its very own stretch of heavenly sand.
Have fun perusing these beautiful homes and villas, and, if you’re a beach lover, check out dates that will work for you or your family and friends, and go enjoy a toes-in-the-sand Caribbean vacation escape. You’re worth it!

Oceanfront Beach House, Rincon, Puerto Rico

This 3-bedroom, 2-bath fun and funky villa is located on an entire top floor of a 3-story building with a rooftop terrace along with a beachside patio and stairs leading to the beach. Not only can you find sea glass and other treasures here, but humpback whales are frequently spotted from late January to early April.
Villa Maria White House, Montego Bay, Jamaica
As one of the few beachfront villas in Montego Bay, Villa Maria in the quaint seaside fishing village of Whitehouse is a 4-bedroom, 4-full and one half-bath villa that’s absolutely stunning.
The vacation home, resembling a classic Florida beach house architectural style, also includes a private pool, splendid ocean and mountain views, and the peaceful tranquility of staying in less busy non-resort accommodations.
Oceanfront Villa with Private Beach, Bonaire
The price-point on this spacious 6-bedroom, 6-bath villa that can sleep 12 is impressive. It’s great for families, friends, and small dive groups given that Bonaire is renowned for its amazing snorkeling and diving experiences.
360-degree panoramic views are spectacular, and guests have access to a shared pool at the Hamlet Oasis Complex where the villa is located. It’s hard to beat the views, the incredible value and the chance to visit the incredible Dutch island of Bonaire in the Leeward Antilles of the Caribbean Sea.
10-Bedroom Private Beachfront, Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic
If you’ve never experienced the beauty of the Dominican Republic, this is the opportunity to do so with friends and family in this amazing, private, 10-bedroom, 11-bath beachfront villa with hotel amenities.
Barefoot combines the exclusivity and privacy of a large beachfront villa with the amenities and comforts of a boutique hotel. The pricing of this beachfront property is impressive, but it can hold an army.
And seriously, dividing the cost among friends or family means you’re getting a vacation villa priced far less than individual hotel rooms, plus all the amenities.
Coconut Beach with Private Pool, Providenciales, Turks and Caicos
This place is absolutely magnificent, but pricey. However, with six bedrooms and five baths, it’s easily shareable with family and friends and so worth it to vacation in the jaw-dropping beauty of the Turks and Caicos.
The luxury villa sits on one of Turks and Caicos loveliest stretches of sand, Sapodilla Bay Beach, with crystal-clear waters, a sugary white seashore and calm waves. The ability to sleep up to 12 guests among two identical side by side suites in a duplex design providing even more space makes this vacation rental an ideal choice.
