  • Luna Bella: Everything we could have wanted....and more

    "My husband and I stayed for 5 nights at Luna Bella to escape the winter cold in Brooklyn at the end of Feb. We are SO glad we chose to plan this last minute vacation. Upon arriving, we were literally shocked at the amazing view that you can pretty much see from the whole unit. We stood out on the balcony, enjoyed the welcome rum and coke that Sue so kindly provided for us, and just took it all in. We had a fantastic stay! The highlight is definitely the view and the balcony. The unit is exactly as advertised. The resort itself is a huge plus. There are 3 pools, a restaurant, a small but private beach, and even a gym and yoga studio right next to the unit. We hate all inclusive style resorts and this was nothing like that. The resort was very intimate and boutique, with nature all around you. And the facilities made everything very easy. We couldn't have asked for more. I would definitely stay again!"

  • Excellent family vacation

    "We had a great time at Atlantis, at this timeshare condo. Atlantis has amazing facilities to enjoy (waterpark, pools, activities), and is great for kids and teens. It is a real advantage to have a kitchen facility, as eating out is pricey. The owner was great to deal with - prompt with e-mail and very helpful. Overall, a fabulous experience."

  • A wonderful week with Friends

    "We have just returned home from staying at this amazing home. We had a total of 7 people and found the house to be very comfortable. Our favorite part is the patio that we sat on for hours just watching the waves and the color of the water change hourly. Location is great. Very quite but close to everything you many need. The drive to Grocery stores, restaurants, and Rincon was very quick. We enjoyed the time here so much that we have already started planning our next trip back."

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.
