  • Great Property, 4.5 stars

    "We had a great trip to TCI and really enjoyed staying at the VR. Had a 2 br/2 ba condo on the first level. View and beach access were exceptional. Pool was very clean and the entire property is generally well kept. House keeping staff were punctual and always made sure we had plenty of towels, clean dishes, etc. Kitchen was adequately equipped but certainly not spacious. Grace bay was as beautiful as advertised. Never had a problem securing beach lounge chairs for my family of 5. Concierge service was helpful with a little assertive guidance and prompting, but always responsive and able to ultimately deliver on what was asked. Had to call maintenance for a couple of minor issues and they were very prompt to respond and resolve each episode. Location was very good as there are several good restaurants and a really expensive grocery store within walking distance. The cell phone issue mentioned by the previous reviewer is real, however I felt like this burden could be/was appropriately transferred and handled by the concierge service. No bar and restaurant on site was a bit of a bummer at times but there are plenty of substitute options nearby. We enjoyed the smaller development / more intimate feel of VR compared to a larger resort where we're more likely to feel cramped by the masses. Tennis court (1) was very nice. Exercise room was nothing special. Overall, we had a great stay at VR and hope to return there again soon."

  • The perfect place

    "We have been to St Martin several times, and stayed at different locations each time. This was by far the best place. As soon as we opened the door to this villa we fell in love. The view is spectacular - and the covered deck runs the full length of the unit. Never needed the A/C, lots of fans and ocean breezes, and it was lovely to go to sleep with the sounds of the waves and the tree frogs. Coral Shores is a great little complex. Beautifully landscaped - flowers everywhere, and the pool is gorgeous - and not at all crowded. Plenty of lounges, with sun or shade. Well stocked villa, with everything you need - blender for those tropical drinks, gas grill, even binoculars for observing the boats going by. Very nice housekeeping staff who meet you and explain everything you need to know, and they keep the unit very clean. Already thinking about when we can return."

  • HOME AWAY FROM HOME

    "Yes we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your place. The house was more than we could have asked for with all the conveniences; really appreciated the addition of the washing machine and the handiness of the clothes line. The bedrooms were comfortable at night with the air conditioning. We really felt at home ,so much nicer than staying at a resort or in a hotel. And so centrally located to what there is to do. We loved the regular visit of the iguana who nicely left his deposit (we saw him once)!!!!  And Ellen was willing and ready if we needed her"

  • Awesome Place to Stay

    "This was a perfect place to stay -right on the beach. Loved eating our meals outside on the table under the palm tree and watching the ships on the ocean. We had 3 adults and 3 teenagers. Loved having 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The place was very clean and the owners Ronnie and Ruth were very friendly and were waiting for us when we arrived and explained everything that we needed to know about their condo and answered any questions we had. It was a very quiet place and we basically had the beach to ourselves. We enjoyed snorkeling right off the beach but we discovered if we swam up closer to the Tiki Hut it was better snorkeling there. Our teens favorite outing was renting wave runners to go to Stingray City, doing some excellent snorkeling and then to Starfish point. We had a tour guide leading the way. If you do this you will want some goggles for your face - its a little rough and you will get a lot of water splashing on your face! I had sunglasses which helped but goggles would be better. My kids ended up putting on their snorkeling masks. If we go back to the Caymans I would definitely try to stay here 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.
