Recent Caribbean reviews

  • One of our most favorite places to stay!

    "We are world travelers- African safaris, Positano, Santorini, Mallorca, Villa de Este in Lake Como, Barbados and much of the Caribbean, Asia and Villa Fregate is one of the best. We love the island. When we leave the Villa to go to the beach, shop or dine, we return to the Villa, look at ourselves and ask- 'Why did we leave it?' The view, the rooms, the kitchen, the furniture, appliances, internet and wifi plus printer and the attentiveness to detail are tops. We take walks daily just outside of the Villa. Hotel Christopher is down the hill with Mango for lunch and a Sisley Spa. The bakery is a two minute easy drive for daily morning croissants. Pointe Milou is away from the traffic of the main roads and the views are non stop wonderful. The property manager Dawn is excellent and the ladies, Josie and Mona, who clean the Villa are superb. We have been coming now for 7 years- 2 weeks at a time- and are always sad to leave. The good news is we only have 50 weeks until we return. Almost forgot- there is a lot of wind- it is refreshing and keeps the bugs away. In other parts of the island, particularly the leeward side, the bugs- mosquitoes in particular- can be unpleasant but not at Villa Fregate."

  • Local immersion

    "Throughly enjoyed our 8 days in sea glass cottage, you are completely immersed in a community that has existed for well over 200 years. You can walk the town in 20 to 30 minutes. The residents are very friendly and hard working, they and there families have carved out a living in a beautiful place for generations. The long dock is a great place to relax and on low tide conch shells can be picked up(and put back). The best beach is not far away, winding bay, marked with a tiny sign in the road that says " beach". Grocery store is a 3 minute walk. The cottage it self retains the original old world original charm, yet is beautiful and expertly decorated on the interior, never turned on the ac, really hard to describe how truly relaxing, fun, historical Cherokee Sound is. Locals night at Pete pub is a must...friendly characters from all over the world. Definitely rent a car from the airport for the week, only 350.00 to visit all the spots. The cab rides to and from the airport are 80 dollars plus tip, car is well advised. Ms Winnie Sawyer next door is an excellent cook and a life long resident. The water is shallow and kids would have no danger there. You will hate to leave!"

  • Swept Away

    "4th time at Moonswept was phenomenal! Once again, the views were remarkable and indescribable. While the trip up and down Calabash Boom can be challenging, the reward is oh, so worth it! Villa was great as always! Dave keeps the villa in tip top condition and it certainly shows. We hope our next visit will be two weeks as one week is not enough! Moonswept always gives us a serious case of villa gravity! We have so many plans to hit the beach and find ourselves unwilling to leave such a special place! We would recommend for anyone wanting to truly get away from it all..."

  • Relaxing place, awesome view, good location

    "2 weeks in St. Kitts of total relaxation and an awesome time. The suite (there are 2, hint: take Buena Vista), offers an awesome view of Frigate Bay and Nevis Peak. You can hear the splash of waves from the shore below, which makes it very relaxing. The suite is a fairly large studio, akin to a motel kitchenette suite. It more than suited our needs for the duration of our stay. What we truly loved from this studio was, that it was breezy, just open the patio door, a side window, the access door and it stayed cool (even in 30 degree weather). We even tried to sleep without the AC, but had to give up because of wild roosters in the nearby hills, they start singing at around 3:30AM and do not stop. Despite these roosters, the neighbourhood is quiet. We did not get to meet the owner in person, but he is genuinely interested in ensuring that your stay is an enjoyable one. He can easily be reached (maybe even too easy that the manager often got overlooked) and will provide complete information whenever requested. Also thanks to the manager and Rudy the handyman, they helped making our stay enjoyable. PROS: Roomy, breezy, quiet. Suite is reasonably well furnished. Big (new) fridge with a few goodies upon arrival. Washer and dryer proved useful (are reasonably new too) Reasonably close (on foot) to the South Frigate Bay watering holes CONS: Kitchen tools and utensils could use revamping and are limited. Recommendations for the upcoming traveller: Car is definitely needed (driving on the left of the road is fun!!!) Bring along some resealable plastic bags (ziploc type) of various sizes, well worth it. This suite is good for couples of all ages."

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.
