"Our family of 5 stayed here for 4 days and were very, very pleased. From the house, it is a short walk to the entrance to the Baths and the Mad Dog eatery. In the backyard are some wonderful boulders that are fun to climb. The various decks and patios are a delight to have dinner or late night drinks on. The kitchen had everything you need. We would have preferred air conditioning, but there were ample fans to keep you cool enough. Howard was a pleasure to work with, answering every question and meeting us at the dock and putting a few things in the fridge to start us off. The ability to go the Baths early and late, thus avoiding the boat crowd, was magical. Howard had mentioned that the 5th and 6th beds were child-sized, but our 5'4" daughter slept comfortably enough in one of them, with an inch or two to spare."Guest: ken p.

"What a wonderful place to stay for our girls party! Our time spent at the "Le Gallerie" was pure bliss. It is hard to explain the emotions we felt when we arrived. We really couldn't believe our eyes. Relaxation at it's finest! The memories made here will never be forgotten. Le Gallarie is fit for a queen! The staff is absolutely wonderful. We enjoyed the warm food and faces of Shermaine, Cathenne and Thersa along with Alberts wisdom and games. Also safe traveling to and from the ariport with Bernard and Tiki making sure the pool was in tip to shape. We all express our deepest gratitude for everything!"Guest: Oklahoma and Texas Girls!

"Our stay at the Grand Caribe was very nice. The unit was comfortable and had exceptional views over the pool and ocean. The housekeepers were fabulous and the grounds were immaculate. My only very small issues were that the kitchen doesn't have enough kitchenware to really cook (missing a cutting board, broiler pan, baking dishes and mixing bowls). And being a health fanatic, I HATED cooking on toxic non stick pans. The bar/grill on the grounds was expensive, and the food was so so. But Akbol the restaurant a couple blocks south had exceptional food and really good prices. There were also other bars and restaurants in walking distance and we even did the 2.5 mile walk along the water to town a couple of times. It costs $5 us/person for a water taxi trip one way to town, and Estel's in town has great breakfasts. Sitting out on the dock watching the fish and manta rays (we even saw an eagle ray) was entertaining. The resort staff are all very friendly and always willing to help. We were w/out internet access for over 2 days during our stay and the electricity was out for a day but these types of things aren't in the owners control anyway and the resort did a barbeque lunch the day of the planned power outage."Guest: Anonymous Date of Stay: December 2013 Review Submitted: December 23, 2013View listing
"My party of eight friends just spent a delightful week at Gun Point (Nov 10 to 18). Most of the compliments I would list have been made in other reviews, but a few points stand out: This villa really lends itself to just hanging out and doing nothing much, thanks to spectacular views, a deck with various areas for lounging and conversation, a nice sandy beach close by, the infinity pool and, importantly, the grassy areas that reinforce the feeling of being on a spacious private estate – which of course Gun Point actually is. I expected we would eat out a lot but we only dined out once (in Cane Garden Bay, with steel band duo; anyone new to the islands should hear a live steel band at least once, so that was a hit). Partly because the ladies were excellent cooks but also because Gun Point is so relaxing that one is in no hurry to leave it for somewhere else. Similarly, we did not do many excursions – just a day sail on a catamaran based at Sopers Hole. The West End is the only part of Tortola I know, but between the villa, the beach (Smugglers Cove), the bays along the north west shore (Apple Bay, Carrot Bay, Cane Garden Bay) and the marina at Sopers Hole with nice cafes and decent grocery shopping, it feels like a self-sufficient island of its own where one doesn’t feel like a tourist, even though one is. No need to venture into Road Town that I could see. The pharmacy perhaps. Management: great job by JC and Sam (Samantha) Pierce. JC is in perpetual motion, fixing stuff and generally helping out. Must be hard work but he never seems to lose his cool. Overall: top marks all round."Guest: Jeremy Stone Date of Stay: November 2013 Review Submitted: November 28, 2013View 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.
