The 50 x 8 ft balcony captures the tradewind breezes and overlooks the pool, Atlantic Ocean, Oyster Pond Marina and the island of St. Barths. It is a lovely spot to share breakfast or lunch. It has both shade and sun. Enjoy a pina colada while watching the sailboats returning to Oyster Pond at the end of the day. When the sun sets and the lights over the French side start to twinkle the feeling is magical. The Hummingbird Guest House is a one block walk to Oyster Pond and Dawn Beach known for its sugary pink sand and superb snorkeling on the spectacular coral reef.

At the beach you can drop into the Pier Market featuring freshly baked croissants and baguettes. Fine wines and alcohol are also available along with general grocery and sundry items. The Big Fish Restaurant is a charming place for lunch or dinner. Canoa on the Pond is excellent! Right on the Beach you will find Mr. Busby's/Daniel's by the Sea Restaurant also open non-stop from morning until night. Their newest addition is a take out Pizza Parlour.

Just across the French Border are more restaurants. Mama's Pizza specializes in scrumptious pizza and has now added a sit down under the stars menu. The legendary Dinghy Dock at Captain Oliver's Pier offers a visit with an interesting array of sailors and boat people at happy hour. Captain Oliver's Saturday night buffet is spectacular and includes entertainment. Dirty Des's great food too. Just over the Pond.

The Philipsburg Boardwalk is a quick 20 minute ride into town. The Boardwalk was created directly on the Great Bay Beach. Designer shops sit beside every imaginable kind of restaurant. It is a walking delight!

Marigot, the French Capital, has the charm of New Orleans and the ambience of France. Do not miss the waterfront market, the Marina Royale, home to the renowned Tropicana Restaurant. On the waterfront you will also find the Le West Indies Mall. The Marigot shopping and art galleries are not to be missed. It is a 30 minute ride to the French town of Marigot.

                      World Class shopping for jewelry and designer fashion. Cartier, freshwater and ocean pearls of every hue. The unique Boardwalk in Philipsburg offers a complete array of dining and shopping experiences. Oyster Pond is home to several lovely dining destinations and other more casual, pizza/burger places. There is a small Pier Grocery to pick up a few things. Marigot waterfront is home to the finest bakery, Serafina. The almond croissants are very special. Marigot's Marina Royale encircles waterfront restaurants and small boutiques. Tropicana, our personal favorite for lunch or dinner.

                      See the Butterfly Farm on Saturday or Sunday Morning to avoid the crowds, then spend the day at Le Galion Beach, locally known as Coconut Grove or Baby Beach because of its calm waters or stop for lunch at Orient Beach and take a stroll down the 2 mile expanse of white sugar sand. Tues night is the Street Faire in Grand Case.
