  • a genuinely relaxing family holiday

    "We have returned a number of times, this time with 2 young children age 2 and 4. This is the first family holiday where we have all really relaxed and enjoyed it. I have played tennis, my husband has got in some training for his triathlon and the children have not stopped asking to go back to our holiday home. The condo is perfect for our purpose and has a very comfortable bed (I usually sleep badly away from home) not here! The pool is perfect for all of us. The incredible beach is so quiet and just amazing. The location allows you to explore other islands with ease. We were all made to feel welcome, safe and included, from the owners of the charter boats to the gardeners, everyone makes you feel at home. So much so I wish we were there now. Great property, great location, see you again soon."

  • Slice of paradise

    "This was our second time renting this unit. It is well equipped and well maintained. We absolutely love the location on the cove, with Rum Point just across the street. You can book your snorkeling, scuba and Stingray city trips at Rum Point, as well as snorkel, lay on the beach, eat and drink. We kayaked every morning and every evening to the end of the cove where the view is spectacular. What a sunset! The pool is beautiful and the grounds are a tropical delight. Don't miss eating dinner on the beach at Tukka (East End), especially if there is a full moon. We loved the peaceful atmosphere."

  • Peaceful and relaxing vacation with the family.

    "This was the best vacation that my entire family experienced from the breakfast cooked daily in our villa to the restaurants that we ate at. You will find this resort overwhelming and I am sure that we did not see everything that this resort has to offer. We will be 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.
