  • A rose by any other name would smell as sweet

    "I'm going to try to be objective here but it's not going to go well, because this place is so astounding that six months later I still haven't recovered from the experience. The villa is cleaner than any hotel I've ever seen, and large enough that you'll still be discovering the place after you've been living there for days. I've used VRBO to rent in the Hamptons before and the pictures ALWAYS stretch the truth, but what you see here is what you get. So that was the first pleasant surprise. It had everything we needed, and more importantly nothing we didn't. Everything looked brand new, and it was impeccably decorated. You could entertain a large group for dinner or, like me, stay with just one person the entire time and feel completely at home. I don't think we left the villa for the first 72hrs. Not even to walk to the beach, which, by the way, is pristine and a 90-second flip-flop down the hill (we went a few times in the middle of the night ;) Following the caretaker down the steps and onto the patio for the first time, I was instantly relaxed (an unusual initial feeling for me). The fridge was stocked with a few french necessities to get us started (who really needs anything else?), and the full market was about an 8 min drive away. We cooked all our meals in the beautiful, open kitchen, and ate (and drank) on the patio overlooking the sea. I don't cook very often, but it actually became one of our favorite things to do here simply for the fact that there was literally no place we'd rather be. I will leave the surrounding attractions for you to discover, but suffice it to say that you can't go wrong on this island. Just bring half the clothes you think you'll need. The caretaker was absolutely wonderful. She met us at the airport when we picked up our car and led us around the island to the villa. She was completely open to our schedule and only came around to sweep up, wash some pots (there's also a dishwasher), make the beds and do some laundry when we were gone. The location of the house is ideal. It's basically as far as possible from town (15mins). It sits on the same beach as the fanciest resort on the island (which we poached for a drink or two - the bartenders are great), so you have prestige going for you. The beach in front is only for surfing, not swimming (riptides) but this keeps the tourists away and enhances the privacy while retaining proximity to the ocean. Honestly, they thought of everything here. Don't say I didn't warn you."

  • Perfectly Perfect

    "For the past 30 years we have taken our summer vacation in July so it can double as a celebration of our anniversary. We found Les Jardins d'Emmanuel on VRBO but it wasn't available until August. We liked what we saw and read so we took a chance and booked it for eight nights, starting August 18th. To say we were amazed is an understatement. As so many have already written Rosita and Jean Paul are amazing. They treat you more like family or friends than a client. They provided us with home and cell numbers in case we needed to contact them for anything and did call to check on us to make sure we were satisfied. We joked that the only thing we didn't like about the villa was that we liked it so much we were content to stay there enjoying the breathtaking view, relaxing pool, gazebo and first class sound system when we should have been out enjoying the island. We did remedy that however by booking for a full two weeks in August 2011. We were hoping to find it open in July but realize that everyone else who was lucky enough to find this villa enjoys it as much as we did and tend to lock their time in. We truly had the most perfect vacation ever and can't wait to return. Restaurants we would definitely recommend are Pipiri Palace, Santa Fe, Le Gaiac and either Le Bouchon or The Hideaway for a pizza night. Make sure you get the hot oil! We were disappointed with the Wall House, La Langouste and Eden Rock."

  • Exceeded all expectations

    "My husband and I just spent 8 nights at La Baleine which went over New Years. La Baleine has one of the best views of the super huge yachts which have to park outside of the harbour because their immense size. The views are even more outstanding at night when the yachts are all lit up. The villa is meticulously maintained with a beautiful deck around the pool and a gazebo for shade. We had breakfast in the gazebo every morning. It's the PERFECT breakfast spot! I'd always take the binoculars with me to get a closer look at the magnificent yachts and sailboats. We enjoyed the villa so much that we'd end up leaving the beaches early just do we'd have lots of time to spend sitting on the deck and taking in those gorgeous views. I also have to mention how sweet Rosita is. She's extremely friendly and made sure we had the perfect vacation. Thank you, Rosita!!! Vickie and Joe"

St. Barthelemy Travel Tips

Seasons to Travel to St. Barthelemy Vacation Rentals

St. Barthelemy is a small horseshoe-shaped island located near St. Maarten in the Caribbean. It is an independent French territory that once was part of Guadeloupe. The island is more often simply referred to as St. Barts or St. Barths. With its location in the Caribbean, it enjoys a year-round warm tropical climate. The summer months can get humid and most rainfall occurs during this time of year. Typically, the thunderstorms are intense and short-lived. The sunshine often returns afterward and visitors can enjoy clear skies. Occasional tropical storms can blow through during the late summer months. While it is a destination that is visited all year long, the most popular travel season tends to be between December and April. Many people travel from Europe and North America to escape from colder northern climates. At this time of year, it is also less humid and the days are still enjoyably warm.

VIP Visitors to St. Barthelemy Villas

St. Barths has over the years built a reputation for being one of the elite Caribbean vacation destinations. Perhaps it is because it is fairly remote and not particularly well known that it remains a favorite hideaway for European royalty and Hollywood celebrities. Even relatively early on in its history, the island developed a talent for creating commerce which turned it into a relatively wealthy island compared to many of its Caribbean neighbors. The resorts and vacation homes are exclusive and stylish with hefty price tags to match. If it is a remote and private vacation destination that you are looking for, then it's well worth it.

Top Attractions near St. Barthelemy Resort Rentals

Some of St. Barth's main attractions are its beautiful beaches. The island is volcanic in nature which has resulted in a number of secluded coves and quiet beaches. Never far away are superb restaurants and beach bars where you can enjoy some local cuisine. The island is a duty-free tax haven and offers some superb shopping facilities. The main streets are lined with glamorous and designer boutiques showing off all kinds of fashions and accessories. It is somewhere where you can spoil yourself with that pair of designer shoes you have been eying for a while. If you would like to enjoy the azure blue ocean, you can arrange a charter on one of the many luxury yachts moored in the harbor. Cruising around the coastline, you can drop anchor near one of the reefs and spend the day snorkeling and swimming.

Getting to Caribbean Vacation Rentals in St. Barthelemy

St. Barths has a small airport with a tarmac runway but can only accommodate smaller commercial aircraft. Larger commercial aircraft such as air buses cannot land on the island. For international travelers, you will first travel to the neighboring island of the Dutch-governed St. Maarten. From there, you can get a quick 10-minute shuttle flight across to St. Barths. There are several airlines operating shuttle flights, and charter companies are also available for private charter flights. As an alternative routing, you can also fly via Guadeloupe. The regional flight takes approximately 45 to 60 minutes, depending on which airline you choose. If charter flights are your preferred way of travel, you can look into routing via the islands of Antigua or San Juan on Puerto Rico. Once on the island, the easiest way to get around is by taxi. Car rentals and chauffeur-driven vehicles are also available. These can be arranged at the airport upon arrival or by contacting a local operator in advance.
