  • This was perfect for us

    "When my husband and I get a vacation rental we look for privacy and seclusion. At Surf Sound we certainly had both. The only reason it wasn't quiet is because of the sound of the waves in Johns Folly Bay, the symphony of night creatures all night and the roosters during the day; all natural! There is no light pollution so the stars are magnificent! The cottage was clean and very well appointed. There was always a breeze so we didn't use the air conditioning at all. The outdoor shower has no enclosure other than the surrounding vegetation but none is needed. A sign at the foot of the road says "four wheel drive only" and it means it but navigating the driveway is no worse than the roads, really. There are many great restaurants in the Coral Bay area so we stayed on that side of the island away from Cruz Bay which was too crowded for us. There was a fabulous sunrise every morning; we had front row seats from the porch. The only downside, if there was one, was a plastic cover on the mattress under the sheets that made the bed very hot. Can't wait to come back!"

  • Amazing Experience!!!

    "This condo has everything you can think of! The proximity to the beach is less than a 5 minute walk to the famous Grace Bay beach. The property is well maintained and Mel was extra helpful during our arrival. The unit is in pristine condition! It has everything you need! The kitchen is well equipped, if you want to make a Thanksgiving dinner you can. All you need is food in the fridge and you're good to go! I highly recommend this unit , I will definitely be coming back!"

  • Great Architecture, Great Food, Great Host

    "You never know what you will find when you book a stay. All of the reviews were very good and so we committed. The guest house is very private and separate from the main home. The style is contemporary with very interesting cantilevered decks and great terrazzo floors. The outdoor/indoor hot shower with a large boulder inside the screened area is one of the unique features. The bedroom is private and is like sleeping in the rain forest, the sounds of the frogs at night is soothing. But the best thing about our stay was the owner Brad, who tends the amazing tropical fruit, herb and vegetable gardens of his estate. Brad used the fresh fruits to make a wonderful breakfasts, and dinners for us. We soon learned that the best food in the area was to be found right here. Brad is a trained chef who is also one of the most gracious and helpful people that I have meet in sometime. We felt very spoiled and his efforts to make sure we had a comfortable stay we're first class. Brad also gave us daily local advice on the nearby beaches, restaurants and the National Forest. A great beach called the Balneario, is just minutes away! We miss our personal chef and new friend. Highly recommended!"

  • Apartment excellent, parking not

    "My wife and I spent 10 days in Benjamin's apartment. We loved Mount Vernon and Benjamin's place. Orient Beach is fabulous and all of the restaurants were great, especially those in Grand Case. Didier was most helpful and their when we called and had a couple beers waiting for me on arrival! Now, the bad side; parking at Mount Vernon is a nightmare. There is very limited parking on the hill near the main entrance, and a large lot down the hill behind the complex. If you are out in the evening, expect to park in the back lot or down the street. We parked our car in the back lot, it rained all evening and the next morning the back lot was a lake! Our car was full of water up to the seats and a few other cars were completely covered. Needless to say, this put a huge damper on an otherwise great vacation. I don't know how they fix this problem, unless Benjamin provides one of the private/locked spots with the rental. Other than the parking situation, we loved Mount Vernon and Benjamin's apartment !"

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.
