When to Rent your Villa in the Virgin Islands

by | Apr 18, 2014 | Travel

Are you planning a trip to the Virgin Islands? If so, you can expect sunshine virtually every single day. Temperatures typically climb to around 80 degrees during the day and a very comfortable 70 degrees during the night. Winter is considered to be the dry season on the Virgin Islands, but rainfall may occur at any time during the year. However, there is not too much to worry about since the tropical showers usually appear suddenly and then disappear just as quickly. If you plan to be out and about, exploring the islands, it is a good idea to bring rain gear, just in case!

Understanding the different weather conditions of the Virgin Islands can help you plan your vacation and rent your Virgin Island Villas accordingly. After all, you don’t want to visit in the middle of a hurricane, or when the island is so packed you can’t gain access to anywhere you really want to go.

Hurricane Season

The more undesirable type of weather that is experienced in the Caribbean occurs during the hurricane season. Officially, this is the period between the month of June and the month of November. The chain of the Virgin Islands lies in one of the main pathways of a number of hurricanes that have hit the Caribbean area in the past. It is a good idea to purchase trip-cancellation insurance if you are planning to visit during hurricane season.

When to Visit

The “high” season for Virgin Islands visitors is the winter months. This is when rental rates for hotels, villas and other accommodations are at their highest and runs from around the middle of December to the middle of April. However, there are many cases when the rates will be lower during January, due to a slump in visitor’s right after the holidays.

There are a number of advantages to visiting during the off season, with the biggest being that accommodations, including villas, are much more affordable. No matter when you visit, be sure to check out the available accommodations and select a villa that will meet the needs of your travel partners. This will ensure a great time is had by everyone that visits.
