  • .....just as perfect the second time around!

    "After sailing around the BVI with family we decided to end our vacation again with a week at Da Blue House. We had a remarkable experience last year and it was just as perfect again. Arriving at the house felt like coming home. Soooo relaxing watching the surf from the front yard and grilling out on the patio. JC and Sam have the house equipped with everything we could possibly need and it is so comfortable. We just love the charming neighborhood of Little Carrot Bay and this house is located right in the middle. Its great to walk through the streets and talk with the neighbors...everyone is just wonderful. This year we made arrangements with Egbert at the Northshore Shell Museum to cook us dinner. We strolled down there one evening and had a night filled with endless stories from Egbert, fantastic spiced fish and music we played together with him on instruments he supplied. Great fun! We spent a few days on the very pretty beach at Smugglers Cove, just a short drive from the house. We also hiked our favorite Sage Mountain trails. The north loop is like something out of Jurassic Park, fantastic flora and fauna.....minus the dinosaurs. Our very favorite part of the week is just hanging out in the yard with a couple of rum drinks, playing cards or just watching the waves. Thanks Sam and JC for providing us with a great experience again!"

  • Absolutely Amazing

    "Mampoo Hill is incredible. The house is excellent. The beach is great. We cannot wait to return. We have one complaint only -- we had to get used to the noise of the crashing waves every night (but we survived). Rent the jeep."

  • I found paradise at Coral Gardens!!

    "I had such an amazing vacation at Coral Garderns on Grace Bay. It was just a beautiful as Nancy said it would be. Gerome on the beach is so helpful and hospitable and FLO in housekeeping was a gem! She took care of us and it was so great. I think staying at Coral Gardens is such a plus as it is a sweet boutique hotel with the personalized service that you don't get in the larger properties. Great value and the reef out your front door for snorkeling is a huge treat!! I would highly reccomend you stay here. You must eat and enjoy the food and atmosphere at Somewhere Cafe. This was a highlight of my vacay!"

    "We stayed at Coconut Beach house 351226 for a week in the middle of October 2014. We could not be happier with the experience we had. The house has all the amenities needed to enjoy your vacation whether you want adventure, relaxation, or both! Kitchen is fully outfitted with appliances, cookware, utensils etc. Bedrooms stocked with linens and bathrooms with tons of towels. There is also washer/dryer utility room! We were also provided with two bicycles to ride around the island. Air conditioning in the bedrooms kept us cool during the nights. House opens on a porch leading to a conch-lined path ending on a white sand beach! A hammock awaits you in the beautiful coconut grove along the path! We arrived by our own boat and were able to anchor it right in front of the house. The arrangements/payments were simple and smooth. The caretaker of the house was so accommodating and supplied us with anything we needed on a daily basis. The neighbors near the property are so friendly and make you feel like family during your stay. We were fortunate enough to be able to attend the annual Conch Festival where we met many local Bahamians who included us in the festivities and made us feel at home. The local scuba diving is astoundingly beautiful. We dove on several lovely reefs and in a blue hole! The fishing is also amazing...bonefish, tuna, grouper, hogfish, and lobster were some of the meals we enjoyed. This was one of the best trips we have taken and we plan on returning to this beautiful location 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.
