grand cayman, cayman islands Soak up the striking beauty of the Caribbean, enjoying the luxury of an expansive private villa on the grounds of the acclaimed Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman. The resort rests on the island’s Seven Mile Beach—arguably the best-known beach in the Caribbean, and certainly one of the most impressive stretches of pristine white sand anywhere. And your private villa offers the best of all worlds— easy access to this legendary beach (via private golf cart, no less) and all the amenities of this celebrated resort, plus the ultimate in privacy, nestled on a lagoon surrounded by the fairways of the Greg Norman-designed Blue Tip golf course. Diving is practically mandatory here—the reefs just off-shore are home to some of the most gorgeous (and diverse) marine life found in the Caribbean. But when you’re not in the mood for a day on the water, you’ll find plenty to enjoy on shore as well. The world’s only Green Sea Turtle farm is just up the coast, golf is just outside your door, gourmet dining by famed chef Eric Ripert can be served in the comfort of your villa, the Jean-Michel Cousteau Ambassadors of the Environment program will delight your children, and the resort’s award-winning Silver Rain, a La Prairie Spa will relax and rejuvenate you.

los cabos, mexico Relax in your private hacienda-inspired oceanview residence on the grounds of the award-winning Esperanza Resort & Spa. From its perch on the southern tip of Baja, Esperanza overlooks the sparkling blue of the point where the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean meet—a crossroads traversed by countless humpback whales each winter, whose playful antics can be observed from the comfort of your private deck. And when you’re not whale watching, you can take advantage of the resort’s acclaimed spa, cool off in one of the many pools scattered around the property, sunbathe on Esperanza’s sheltered crescent of sand… even watch the kids make new friends in the kiddie pool or learn the art of preparing traditional ceviche from a private chef.

peninsula papagayo, costa rica Experience the joy of pura vida from the comfort of your oceanview retreat perched on a cliff within the prestigious Peninsula Papagayo community. The wildlife you’ll likely spot while vacationing on Peninsula Papagayo is almost as exciting as the thrill of experiencing all the natural beauty and adrenaline-pumping activities that Costa Rica has to offer. After all, when you’re not watching monkeys lope along your deck railing, you’ll probably be photographing the wild parrots hanging upside down from the branches just outside your kitchen window. But having local wildlife literally visit you at home is just one of the many attractions that make this corner of Costa Rica so sought-after. Your days here can be filled with endless adventures—zip lining, jet skiing, deep sea fishing, diving, ATV tours, sailing, volcano treks…even a river tour in a nearby national park that is home to everything from giant crocodiles and rare birds to tiny bats and the “Jesus Christ” lizard, so light and fast it literally runs across the surface of the water. And if action-packed adventure isn’t your style, you can settle in with a book on the beach, laze the day away enjoying poolside service at the members-only Poro Poro Clubhouse or at the nearby Prieta Beach Club, indulge yourself with rejuvenating spa treatments, or play a round on the Arnold Palmer Signature course, featuring twelve oceanview holes.

The tipping point was when we visited Scottsdale (where we were considering buying property) and stayed at The Rocks on a trial vacation with the club. Everything went right on that visit. Exclusive Resorts made the decision to not purchase property easy to make, and the associated additional administrative burden of vacation home ownership easy to avoid.” scott and lisa gilyard
