  • Paradise!!

    "We a group of 4 adults stayed here 2 weeks in January 2015, what a wonderful vacation. This home is located on the quieter side of the island which we all preferred. Melinda was a pleasure to deal with from the beginning of my booking and right through to the end, providing us with so much helpful information. Being able to snorkel right in your backyard was a dream. The house has everything you could dream to feel like your right at home. All you really have to do is bring your bathing suit and your set. We all found the beds and furniture to be extremely comfortable. We cooked most nights and found the kitchen well stocked. All I can say is we would return in a heartbeat! Thanks Doug and Melinda for sharing your beautiful home with us."

  • Very nice, peaceful location; comfortable digs

    "I was really sad to have to leave Curacao and Marazul. The apartment was in such a beautiful, peaceful location. You really couldn't ask for anything more serene. I don't know if it's always so quiet but seems like the other guests were all couples and small families so it was very mellow. That was nice for us. We didn't mind the distance from Willemstad. We drove down there 4x (2x for snorkeling, 1x for the Klein Curacao boat trip, and 1x just to walk around) and we didn't really mind the schlep. The way the apartment is situated so you could either eat with a view upstairs or downstairs was so nice. I could have spent the day on the patio listening to the rustling trees and waves. There was a wonderful variety of beautiful birds flying around the property. And to be able to see the sunset from the balcony! Fabulous! The condo was very comfortable for two, might have been a little snug for another couple but doable. The condition of the condo was very good. Had a little trouble with the fridge freezing some fresh produce so take care there. Like most condo rentals, knives were very dull making chopping veggies a challenge. Being out on the quiet end of the island did mean more limited restaurant--and grocery shopping--options but we did pretty well. We ate 2x at Trio Pinotti which was my favorite place. Two fantastic meals there. (Highly recommend the coconut fish as many others on Trip Advisor did.) Ate once at Daniel which was also terrific but a long drive and too long dinner for a repeat. We also ate at Forti which was OK ("rustic" as the neighbor put it. I'll say! but I enjoyed eating a lionfish there and doing my duty to rid the Caribbean of the invasive species.) We also ate at Rancho El Sobrino which was fine. We didn't have the greatest conditions for snorkeling through the week but managed to see some amazing things. Right off Marazul we saw an octopus! We saw squid at Tugboat. The best snorkel we had was at Santa Cruz though which is not far at all from Marazul. It was really amazing. Snorkelers don't always get to see much of a variety of coral but this place was special--out around the rocky shelf point to the left side of the beach. Long swim but worth it. As for diving Watamula was great as recommended by Andrea and Chris. It was a great trip!"

  • Perfect for four couples!

    "This was our 5th annual Bahamas trip, our 2nd time to Green Turtle. This is the best house we have stayed in, by far! A spacious, open floor plan and four comfortable bedrooms meant all of us were happy. No one was stuck in "the kid's room". The furnishings are upscale, the kitchen is well stocked with plates, platters, stemware, acrylic tumblers, etc. the kitchen is open, with a large bar/counter, making it easy for several cooks to work at one time, and still interact with the entire group. The outdoor shower was a bonus. It was great to be able to wash the sand off after relaxing in Coco Bay, or after a day of fishing. Great location at the north end of Green Turtle. Be sure to rent a gas powered golf cart. Great vacation!"

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.
