  • Did not Want to Leave Catch N' Keep

    "My husband and I enjoyed a 5 night 10 year anniversary stay at Catch N Keep. Judy was fabulous and very accommodating. Our plane was delayed 6 hours and she made sure that our rental Jeep was still available and that we would arrive safely to the cottage in the dark. The driveway I must say is not for the faint of heart- but it worked once we got use to the steep decline. Loved the open air feel, the bright colorful décor and the porch. Plenty of room for a couple. We would certainly come back- our stay was too short!"

  • Catalyst - May 2014

    "We just completed the half-board on Catalyst for 7 days - it was phenominal! All island stops were well organized - every detail to include snorkling, swimming, customs, shopping, eating, & reservations were already considered and planned out by our Captain. The meals were delicious, down to the preparation, presentation and taste - with absolutely zero complaints. The catamaran is spacious with plenty of room on top to relax in the sun or take cover under the bimini for shade. The scenery was truly incredible, unlike any other place we've been. Snorkling allowed glimpses of beautiful fish, sea turtles, sting rays and many other sea life in the lovely blue and green clear ocean waters. Our favoirite stop was Saba Rock - watching the tarpin feeding. There was just the right amount of interraction with the Captain, very knowledgeable and he provided great detail on the history and stories of the different islands. A vacation truly designed for disconnecting with very limited decision making necessary."

  • A few days away...

    "This apartment was just what we needed for our stay in PR. The location was amazing; it was close to restaurants, bars, highway access, and of course the beach. The security guards are so nice and very helpful. There is a lot of police presence around outside too. They just hang out keeping the area free of any drama. The apartment was nicely decorated. The kitchen made it easy for us to prepare some meals and save a little $$. Just note that if you plan to use the kitchen you have to bring soap, sponge, etc to wash the dishes. There is a dishwasher in the unit but it was not working when we were there. The only other negative that I have is that the bed was horrible. It's a king size bed so it was a nice size but it felt like we were sleeping on a table. Otherwise this place was cute, just what we needed, and the view just can't be beat. Beautiful PR!!!"

  • Wonderful Villa in a beautiful resort

    "We just spent an incredible week at this villa. We had small childen and grandparents with us (3 generations) and it worked out great. The villa is very spacious, and has a well equipped kitchen. Everything is spotless and well cared for. The resort had all the amenities you can ask for-several pools, restaurants, etc all available to us. It is conveniently placed near the tennis courts, the bay beach, and the kiddie pool is right in front. Peter and Martine were extremely thoughtful, helpful, and gracious- a real pleasure to rent from."

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.
