Luxury Retreats Acquires St. Martin Villa Specialist Carimo

MONTREAL, Dec. 6, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Carimo, the leading villa rental and real estate provider on the Caribbean island of St. Martin, has been acquired by Luxury Retreats, the company announced today.

Luxury Retreats had previously worked, for over a decade, with the well-respected, 30-year-old villa rental stalwart in its capacity as rental broker.

"This is a major milestone for both Carimo and Luxury Retreats," said Joe Poulin, President and CEO of the villa rental and management specialist. "Quality properties, quality service, and integrity have always been a big part of Carimo's DNA. I can't think of a company that would be a better fit with our brand," he noted.

The day-to-day operations of Carimo and the high-level service offered by both companies will not be affected by the acquisition, stressed Nick Guezen, the new Interim Manager of Carimo appointed by Luxury Retreats.

"Carimo has been a fixture on the island of St. Martin for a long time, and we have no intention of altering the standard associated with their name or their way of doing business," said Guezen, who added that Carimo villas consistently rank among the most-booked properties of Luxury Retreats' entire 1,800 handpicked rental collection.

Travelers to St. Martin are lured by plentiful activities and great golden beaches, along which many of Carimo's luxurious private rental homes can be found. St. Martin villas range in size and level of luxury, though all of Luxury Retreats' Carimo villas adhere to a high-end standard and typically attract repeat visitors.

"Keeping travelers happy and returning to St. Martin for their vacations in years to come remains our priority, so we are certain that both our villa guests and owners will be pleased with the outcome of the acquisition," said Guezen. Luxury Retreats is the world's largest specialist in luxury villa rentals, offering just over 1,800 elite properties in 45 worldwide destinations. Founded in 1999, the company has grown into a respected leader in the industry, with over 120 employees between its Montreal headquarters and satellite offices in Hawaii, the Caribbean and Argentina.
