Luxury villa hospitality management company BeautifulPlaces has acquired McLaughlin Anderson Luxury Villas, a pioneer and icon of the Caribbean villa vacation industry. With the acquisition, BeautifulPlaces has positioned itself as a leading option for high-end travelers looking for the region’s best vacation rentals. The deal adds more than 100 posh villas, estates and vacation homes in the U.S. Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands and Grenada to the BeautifulPlaces porfolio, which now includes more than 400 villas worldwide. BeautifulPlaces is not relying on exceptional inventory alone to distinguish itself from other Caribbean villa companies. It has brought its core strength to the islands that has set the company apart in destinations from Napa Valley to the Mediterranean: a full range of personal concierge and lifestyle services, notably custom epicurean experiences.
