  • Island Oasis!!

    "From the moment we arrived on St John we knew we were in a special place. Laurie, Craig and their team exceeded our expectations in making sure all of our accommodations were perfect. Staying at the Grande Bay Resort was an ideal location for beach hopping and allowed us the luxury of walking to the shops, bars and restaurants in Cruz Bay. Mornings with coffee and in the evenings with a cocktail(s), the view from our balcony was a great way to start and end our day. Snorkeling with the sea turtles was a highlight we will never forget. We have already begun planning our return visit next year!"

  • Beautiful setting!

    "This was our first time on Antigua and it didn't disappoint! Villa was beautiful and very clean. Owners were always quick to respond before our vacation and during and had helpful suggestions. The only issues we had were the roku wasn't working but the owner tried to resolve the problem quickly but couldn't so they are looking into it further and the water pressure in the showers was not good(but this is Antigua so not much you can do). The people on the island are extremely friendly and willing to give directions when needed or just ask how you are doing. Our favorite beach was half moon bay, not crowded and great snorkeling! Took a little time to get used to driving on the island since we are from the United States, but you get used to it. Great place to relax and enjoy the beach!"

  • Fantastic Holiday

    "We had a fantastic family holiday in Bermuda staying at Freshwinds. Debbie and Nathan were brilliant hosts and helped us sort out transfers to the house with Cal. The house was clean, well furnished and stocked with basic essentails (washing up liquid, soap,toilet rolls etc..) Cal even did a basic shop for us to get us through the first night as our flight was delayed. The house is well positioned for exploring the whole island...the only down side is that the local bus( route 4) finishes to Spanish point at 6pm but you can hire scooters or use taxis. We loved exploring the Lighthouse, Horseshoe Bay beach, the Railway walking trail but especially going out on Ana Luna Nathan's catamaran...fantastic!! The bus stop is 2 minutes walk away and a local convenience store only 10 minutes. All in all.... a great holiday, on a fantastic island in a lovely house."

  • Beautiful, fun and relaxing week on the beach!

    "We had such a nice week at this condo (301A at Bosque del Mar). The 3 bedrooms, spacious living room and kitchen area, 2 balconies and the roof terrace was the perfect get-away for our week in Puerto Rico. The pool area and beach were not crowded at all, and the beach is one of the most beautiful I've been to...warm water, fine sand, small waves, shade and sun, and we could walk and walk on the beach for exercise or just looking for shells. Old San Juan, and Fajardo were within a hour drive, the rainforest, and the kiosks at Luquillo were within 15 minutes. Our hosts left us a tasty basket of goodies too! We would love to visit again!"

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.
