"My family and our friends (a total party of 4 adults and 2 children) just returned from Villa La Recompense and we all agree that we feel like we had a vacation in paradise. Everything was perfect - the villa really feels like a lovely home away from home. We loved the little beach that is right nearby and has good snorkeling (and is very quiet) - and couldn't believe what a short walk it was. Some unexpected visitors to the property included turtles and lizards and brightly colored birds - which delighted everyone. We became regulars of the patisserie (which is fabulous). We also loved the little fish stand just down the road that sells fresh fish in the morning - we bought gorgeous strawberry grouper and some lobsters and had a feast! The kitchen is very well stocked and the whole home is so open and has such great views and lovely gardens that there are many places to either gather with friends for a glass of wine, relax with a book, play a game of clue . . . I couldn't more highly recommend a place to stay. We will definitely return and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else."Guest: Melinda G.

"We chose the Weston house to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren. And we are glad we did! Arriving frazzled and hungry from the flight and travel, Deborah and her team immediately made feel relaxed and welcomed. They took care of everything. After purchasing groceries, I was ready to put them away. "No, no, we will do that." said Deborah and they took them and put them away for us. At that point I realized, now this is the start of vacation. On Saturday night, Deborah had a delicious meal of flying fish and chicken prepared and served to us. For breakfast, we were on our own, which was nice because it gave everyone time to linger at their own morning pace. Since we had 2 toddlers and a baby with us, we did not venture out too much. Though, we did go to the Barbados Wildlife Reserve (Deborah's suggestion) and the St. Nicholas Abbey. Otherwise, we lounged around the pool, the gazebo and the beach. Weston House had a kayak which our family really enjoyed. We snorkled, swam, lounged and made sand castles on their lovely and peaceful beach. I cannot say enough about the Weston House. We had enough room for all 9 of us to spread around. Deborah and her team were warm, friendly and helpful. And by the way, Deobrah is an amazing cook, she even shared recipes with me. For me, one of the highlights of this vacation was everyday they did our laundry. I felt like a queen. For our 40th Wedding anniversary we wanted a vacation that our family and us could remember for years and years. The Weston House delivered that and more. Thank you Deborah, Alisia & Victoria for a vacation of a lifetime! Eileen, Ken & family."Guest: Eileen Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: July 25, 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.
