Turks and Caicos and Jamaica have been listed as two of the top five most sought after countries for villa vacation destinations for 2018.

Villas of Distinction, the world's premier luxury villa rental company made the announcement; the countries were selected based on industry insights.  

Turks and Caicos and Jamaica came in third and fourth place respectively. Jamaica was third in 2016. 

Steve Lassman, vice president of villa product & agency relations for Villas of Distinction spoke on both islands. 

On Turks and Caicos: "Villa bookings to this area are growing rapidly as guests are looking for islands with wonderful white sand beaches, staffed villas and award-winning restaurants, and the Turks & Caicos checks all of these boxes."

On Jamaica:  "A villa vacation to Jamaica continues to provide the best value of any Caribbean villa experience. Staff including a chef, butler, housekeeper and laundress are included in the cost of most Jamaica villas, making each villa a personalized vacation with a staff to cater to one's every need. In addition, the island has so much to offer in the way of activities from snorkeling, scuba diving, golfing, hiking, zip lining, and horseback riding to climbing the world-famous 600-foot-high Dunn's River Falls or enjoying Jamaica's 27 native species at the Rocklands Feeding Station."
