  • Simply amazing

    "Everything about this place is beyond wonderful. We were attracted by the wonderful modern architecture and completely private location, including a beautiful private beach... and ridiculously gorgeous views of the turquoise ocean from every vantage point. We shopped at the nearby grocery store and cooked wonderful meals all week long, and explored the nearby Mount Gorda as well as The Baths and the Coppermine ruins. All lovely short drives and a couple hour diversion. Would definitely recommend for other couples looking for a little quality relaxation, or families who want to spend some time together as the 3 bedrooms and living/dining room areas are very spacious and accommodating. The property manager was also super helpful and responsive, guiding us on everything from car rentals to ferry schedules and things to do and see on the island."

  • Great family holiday home!

    "Our family has just returned from an awesome week at Harbour Island. Thankfully we found and booked Sanderson House for our time away. It was the perfect combination of great price, convenient location close to the beach/town while allowing privacy, lots of space, private pool access and great amenities! Our kids ages 3, 5 and 8 had a blast! The house caters very well for family groups. It came complete with a cupboard stocked full of board games and puzzles, beach towels, beach toys, snorkel gear and access to laundry. There are plenty of bedrooms to spread everyone out, various tv areas and quiet corners. Access to the external washroom with shower was great for post swim or beach trips. The outside bar area was set up well with tv and music speaker hookup. Darico and Frisco took great care of us. They were available to answer all questions, provide local recommendations and always responded quickly to our requests. The housekeeper service was also a nice luxury while on holiday. For the adults we really enjoyed the daily 360 degree views from the widow's walk, the convenience of having private pool access, a great well equipped kitchen, wifi, free long distance calling and effective AC. Great trip and a great stay at Sanderson House!"

  • Love This Place!!

    "Our stay in St. Thomas was wonderful. We stayed at a condo in the Sapphire Beach Resort we rented from Paradise at the Beach. The location was perfect. The condo was on the 2nd floor, which I thought might be an inconvenience, but it was actually better than the 1st floor. With the higher elevation we were able to enjoy the beautiful view of the beach and the bay every morning when we woke up. The condo was clean and quiet. There were plenty of towels and dishes for our needs. The owners also provide snorkel gear, which looked to be brand new. And speaking of the owners, I have to say how wonderful Jeff was in assisting us during our stay. My husband had to have emergency surgery a few weeks before our trip and I forgot to make car reservations. By the time I tried to make reservations, all the car companies were completely booked. I called Jeff and he was able to quickly get us a reservation. Jeff also was quick to respond when we needed assistance finding things around the condo. He also was able to help us with the rental car after our departure. I can't say enough about how attentive and helpful he was for us. Our visit to St. Thomas was our first. We took a trip to St. John's for a tour of the island. I would recommend taking the ferry over and asking one of the taxi drivers for a tour. The cost was $25 pp, but was very well worth it. The gentleman that gave us the tour had lived on the island since 1956 and helped build the infrastructures there. We also took an all day sail with Alaunt Charters. That was wonderful. Ron and Carol, the owners, gave us a private tour around the islands and took us out for our first snorkel trip. I highly recommend them. We loved our trip to St. Thomas and can't wait to come back. We would definitely stay at Sapphire Beach again."

  • Something for everyone in a private community!

    "We just enjoyed a multi-generation family vacation in this spacious condo. It felt like home from the second we stepped in. There are plenty of sleeping spaces in the 2 bedrooms. The smaller one has twin beds and trundles, so 4 fit comfortably in there. There is a large outdoor porch with 4 rockers, and a table with chairs. We loved having snacks out there and watching some ducks walk by. We enjoyed relaxing in the main pool and non-swimmers could sit in a large shaded gazebo with a ping-pong table and snack machines. The gazebo has plenty of comfortable seating. The ocean is out the back gate, and the owner has made arrangements with the next door Hyatt Hacienda del Mar to use their beach area. The condo has easy parking which is nice after battling traffic at some of the main tourist sites. There are 2 grocery stores; Amigo and Super Max, within a 10 minute drive. There is a selection of restaurants to try. I finally tried "Mofongo" at a close-by restaurant called Pika. It was nice to have a stash of beach towels, coolers and toys available to use. We drove to the standard sites; El Morro, El Yunque, Fajardo bio-luminescent bay, Camuy caves, Luquillo beach etc. The condo is conveniently located by highway 22, so it was an easy 'out' to get to the sites. We met residents of the condo community and everyone was friendly and helpful. I'd come back in a flash, and just relax at the condo, there are 3 pools and a beach. No need to leave!!"

Guadeloupe Travel Tips

Traveling to Guadeloupe Vacation Rentals

The main airport is located on the southwestern corner of Basse-Terre, two miles from Point á Pitre. The airport hosts a variety of European and North American airlines and has two international terminals. There are direct flights from Paris and New York City. If you are looking for alternative flight routing, you could look into traveling via San Juan on Puerto Rico. There are several ferries and private yacht charters that operate between Guadeloupe and neighboring islands in the Caribbean.

Best Time of Year to Visit Guadeloupe Villas

Guadeloupe is a group of French-governed islands located in the eastern part of the Caribbean. They are sometimes referred to as the butterfly islands because the two largest islands, when viewed together from the air, resemble the shape of a butterfly's wings. The islands have a typically tropical climate with little temperature variation between the seasons. The more differentiating factor is the humidity and rainfall. In the summer months, high levels of humidity and frequent rain showers make the temperatures feel hotter. Occasional tropical storms are also common, bringing heavy rain and strong winds. The cyclone season is also typically the low tourist season and this occurs mostly in August and September. From December through April, the air is drier and temperatures therefore feel more moderate. This is most commonly the peak tourist season.

Visitors to Guadeloupe Resort Rentals

Because Guadeloupe is a French foreign territory, the primary local language is French. This therefore attracts many French Canadians and European travelers. It is a vacation destination that has an almost sophisticated air about it, even though it is a tropical island destination. The main cities have high-class shopping malls and the streets resemble those of mainland France. However, when you travel to more remote parts of the island, you can discover a wealth of natural treasures. It is certainly a destination for sun lovers and people who enjoy sandy white beaches and swaying palm trees. Guadeloupe is known for its vibrant nightlife. Local festivals are usually all-night street parties. It is a trendy vacation destination that attracts movie stars and celebrities, especially to the elite island of St. Barthelemy.

Attractions and Activities near Caribbean Vacation Rentals in Guadeloupe

Guadeloupe has a wealth of natural attractions. Beautiful beaches are what the destination is known for but its natural attractions extend far beyond that. The rainforests are thick and home to many plant and animal species. The island of Basse-Terre has rugged volcanic terrain and is home to the Caribbean's tallest waterfall. The adjacent island of Grand-Terre has a gentler, more undulating landscape. Some of the smaller uninhabited islands are still relatively wild and untamed. The Guadeloupe National Park has more than 180 miles of marked trails that visitors can explore. For birdwatching enthusiasts, you can take an excursion to the mangrove swamps on Grand-Terre and see many different bird species here.

If you are more adventurous, you can take a hike to the top of La Soufriere. This active volcano last made rumblings in 1976. The hike is strenuous and takes approximately 90 minutes to reach the top. Guadeloupe is surrounded by amazing coral reefs and it is ranked as one of the top 10 dive sites in the world. Diving conditions are calm, and the coral and marine life are abundant. Eating out in Guadeloupe is an experience. The cuisine is a blend of island and European flavors that will delight the palate. There are many beach bars and nightclubs where you can enjoy some tasty local rum cocktails.
