"This was the second week that I have spent at Villa Mara. It was like coming home! We were met at the front door with welcomes and hugs. Last year I thought that the stay was amazing - this year - it was even better. I don't know how the staff did it but they remembered little details about our likes and were right on top of everything. The beautiful house has the atmosphere of real Jamaica and I must say that I got the back to boarding school feeling when we had to leave. My husband, daughter, son-in-law and two grand daughters accompanied me on this trip. Every one had a blast and felt most pampered. My grand daughters both cried when they left. Many very, very happy memories have been made at Villa Mara. For that week we were made to feel that it was our home."Guest: Penny Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 15, 2014View listing
"I was really impressed with our condo. The king bed was very nice and there was everything we needed in it. I had talked to the owner about having to rent snorkel gear (you can rent it at the beach, but we were planning on going to several beaches and didn't want to rent gear at every beach). Our condo owner purchased four sets of snorkel gear to be stored in the condo. Excellent snorkeling right off shore. And if you go, you have to do a day sail on the Nightwind. We zip lined, did jet skis, paddle boarded, and went over to St John's for a day, but the day sail trip was our best day. The only negative thing I would say is that it appears that the Sapphire Beach Resort has been under renovation. It would be nice to see when done, but I had a few people state it's been under renovation for several years. Also to note, it's a good location. Close to ferry to St Johns, grocery store and several resturants. Not much shopping close by, but we spent part of the day in Charolette Amaile. If you plan to do this, be sure to go when a cruise ship is in, otherwise a lot of the stores will be closed. Most ships in port Mon-Wed."Guest: Michael Z.

"This place is spectacular. This is our fourth stay here. Always a memory of a fabulous vacation. Ample sleeping for 4 couples or large families. Pool is great especially under the moonlight. Morning breakfast and coffee on the gazebo is so relaxing. The amenities are everything one needs. The grounds are beautiful peaceful and serene. Francois, the manager is available anytime should need him for recommendations of things to do, places to eat. He is professional and stays in contact without creating any inconvenience. We cannot wait go back to Safir 18 next year."Guest: Rob Y. Date of Stay: February 2014 Review Submitted: February 26, 2014View listing
"We stayed four nights, and wished it could have been longer! Jacqueline was most helpful with any questions via email and responded quickly. The apartment was easy to find with a GPS & seeing pictures of the complex before we left helped. Parking was easy and safe with a gated entry which you use a garage clicker to open. The apartment is cute, clean and comfortable with great views down the street of the beach and the mountains. We didn't really need to use the AC as the refreshing wind blows through and the ceiling fan in the bedroom kept us cool enough. There is sometimes street noise in the evening, but we travel with a white noise app on our phone so it didn't bother us. The bathroom is nicely done. We also were grateful to be able to use her beach chairs and just walk to the beach at the end of the street. What an incredible view! We also walked from this beach down and around to the paid Luquillo Beach; this too has some beautiful spots and a gorgeous lagoon just before Luquillo Beach. Jacqueline has provided everything needed for a fun, relaxing get-a-way and is an incredible host! I highly recommend staying here. We only had time to meet just before we left, which was a shame because Jacqueline was so nice & thoughtful, I could have spent a while visiting with her. THANK YOU, Jacqueline for sharing your darling home-we hope to be back someday!"Guest: Sheila K. Date of Stay: January 2014 Review Submitted: February 6, 2014View listing
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.
