Beth must be Clint's better half. I make a personal effort not to rent from those who advertise openly on public message boards against the policy of the board. If they are successful, there is no need to do so.

Actually, I believe Village St. Jean has a 2 bedroom cottage not a 3. However, the rates are reasonable so you could each rent your own cottage! Another very large villa company would be WIMCO.

Islands with golf are Aruba, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, St. Croix, Jamaica, Nevis, St. Thomas. Check out the villa rental companies as previously mentioned. If staying in St. John, you can go over to St. Thomas and play golf at Mahogany Run. Lots of choices!

Arf,
Check out Tryall Golf and Beach Club, about 10 minutes outside of Montego Bay, Jamaica. There are 55 villas spread along the shore and up into the mountain behind the Great House. There are several 3 bedroom villas, and a similar number of 4 and 5 bedroom ones. Each comes with a staff (cook, butler, maid, laudress, and gardner) to pamper you. While there is no spa, you can arrange for massages. The beach is OK, but at your villa you'll have your own pool. And the golf course, well the golf course is magnificent. The first 7 holes are down by the ocean (number 4 is a killer, and it's just a little par 3) with the rest of the holes stretching up into the mountain, with dramatic elevation shifts.
We (my wife and I and another couple) have been several times. We rent a 4 bedroom villa for a reduced rate, which gives some privacy and room to spread out. You can do the same with the other 4 and 5 bdrm villas on what Tryall calls 'short notice' which is about 6 weeks or so. I get a little uneasy about cutting it that close, so we go directly to the owner. There are 4 or 5 Tryall villas that are advertised by the owners or reps on the Internet. Use Google and type in

Tryall Club villa

One of them is Fern Hill, a 4 bdrm, one is Pinnacle, a 3, and Fairways (another 4 bdrm).

Cj's recommendation about Barbados is also a good one. Check out the villas at Royal Westmorland, it's another great Caribbean golf course, and a heck of a challenge.
