Luxury Family Vacations

Caribbean villa, swankily

Mustique is identified more with louche celebrities (Mick Jagger, Princess Margaret, Felix Dennis) than Bugaboo strollers, but in fact the private Grenadine island is a stealth kiddie paradise. Many of the villa owners built or bought their spreads specifically to escape with their families—and 26 of them are rentable by you. Some, like Frangipani, Yemanja, and Sleeping Dragon, have special children's quarters with nanny suites. Frangipani has a snooker table and a tykes' bathroom with pint-sized fittings; Yemanja has boys' and girls' bunkhouses and a new tennis court. Another villa, Sea Star, is good for babies, with bedrooms far from the pool. Should your budget not run to traveling with a nanny, you can borrow a heavily vetted Vincentian babysitter for an incredible $35 a day or $60 overnight. Then your new best friend can take the kids to peewee tennis camp, a "Bubble Maker" introductory diving course, or horseback riding lessons, or to hang out in the kitchen with your private chef while you check out the new Cotton House spa.
