  • Hola - where to begin Casa Cabot...

    "My son and i checked in at this beautiful thatched roof compound and ocean front retreat with great expectation of experiencing the authentic Dominican Republic lifestyle as I had heard Cabrera would offer in comparison to its neighboring islands and boy were these expectations met! We pulled up to the house and the first impression is simply picturesque standing under the enormous thatched roof built over the house's living room overlooking the infinity pool into the ocean which is literally 50 feet from the house - nothing beats that !! The air was fresh, the ocean breezes, sounds of the waves, open air living throughout the compound. Dominga was our cook for the vacation and she surprised us everyday with a new dish or dessert. Service was attentive and Dominga tried hard to please. She were very accommodating about the menu for the in-house meals and tried hard to find fun activities for my son(8) and myself. There are all manner of tours, activities and attractions available as well, like Kite-boarding, Windsurfing, whale watching, zip-lining, 4-wheelers and trips around the country to enjoy, too, if that is your preference. This house offers everything you need for an amazing quiet retreat and I am definitely coming back to stay here again and re-experience the friendliness of the people that resides on this island, the astounding and unspoiled nature and beaches and the rare tranquility that is just so hard to find in today's hectic everyday life. Great spot altogether for a vacation! - a truly remarkable experience in today's world!!"

  • Perfect honeymoon getaway

    "We stayed in Reef Bay Cottage for the latter part of our honeymoon and wish we had stayed here the entire time. The cottage was exactly as described and came with everything that we needed for our daily excursions (coolers, beach chairs, beach towels, bug spray, etc.). We were able to get some groceries upon our arrival so that I could make breakfast and also pack lunch before we headed out for the day. I even grilled dinner a couple of nights on the gas grill. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the condiments and coffee, tea, sugar, etc. We enjoyed our coffee on the patio every morning overlooking the waves crashing on Reef Bay. We spent the late afternoons with cocktails at the pool which overlooks the ocean - a great way to wind down after our adventures. Seng was the most accommodating host as well and really gave the trip that extra touch that will make us return in the future. I would recommend having a rental car since it is a little off the beaten path - very secluded which is what we wanted on our honeymoon. It is only about a 10-15 minute drive into town for all the bars, restaurants, and shopping. One of the unique aspects of St. John is driving the winding hilly roads - absolutely amazing scenery and vistas throughout the island. Already looking forward to our next St. John trip!!!"

  • Paradise Found

    "If you love the beach, what could be more perfect then vacationing on one of St John's beautiful beaches. The front yard is literally on Gibney Beach. It proved to be the perfect get away for two and we are making plans to return next year. A second house on the property is larger and would be good for two couples or a family with children. I totally agree with the rave reviews that are already posted. The beach cottage is charming and well taken care of by the owner, who lives on the property. Located inside The Virgin Island National Park, it is a short easy drive to Cruz Bay and the other famous North shore beaches. The owner Teri and the groundskeeper Israel are very friendly and eager to help make your stay wonderful. The Gibney family are a part of St John's history and are mentioned in books about St John. I loved staying at The Gibney Beach Cottage and am no longer searching for the perfect villa for our St John vacations."

  • A taste of the Islands

    "The vacation was a new experience for us, we decided NOT to do the typical resort/hotel accomodations and stay in our own rental house. We found Bryans beach House which was well within our budget and the kind of place we wanted. Cheyenne was very helpful and informative with setting up our reservation and arranging a rental car for us when we got there. We stayed for 10days and really had no complaints. Everything was as expected according to photos on the website, but the views are much more breath taking in person. The weather was great but did get a bit chilly at night with the sea breeze, so bring a sweater. The island was beautiful and people were all very gracious. We would definately go 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.
