In our experience, the following villas are the best for Weddings. If extra guests require accommodations, we recommend rental of neighboring "sister" villas.
The villa where the wedding takes place requires a minimum one-week rental at full house rate. For "sister" villas where additional guests are accommodated, there is a seven night minimum in High Season and a five night minimum in Low Season.
Maximum guest count for any event surrounding a wedding is indicated under each villa listed below.
In most villas, a $15 per person surcharge applies to outside guests (in excess of double occupancy per bedroom) who attend a rehearsal dinner, the wedding reception, brunch or any other hospitality event at the wedding villa.
