"Villa du Sapy is everything you dream your vacation to be, and then some. From the moment you enter the circular drive, walk onto the wrap around veranda, then step inside, you feel you are home, albeit a home centered in the hills of Saline, amongst salt pond and beach. The quiet feel of a residential neighborhood only adds to it's ambiance. Breezes from the wrap around veranda invite you to linger a bit longer over your coffee and raisin pastry. This villa is ideal for anyone who wants to pretend it is home. The location is five minutes to anywhere, then back to your private retreat. Walks to Saline provide enough exercise to assuage any guilt at not being at your Zumba class or gym workout. You will miss duSapy more than you think after you arrive back home. It is like a good book, your memories become the characters you fell in love with."Guest: Robin Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: July 22, 2014View listing
"Villa Amour. This is what I think of as 1950's Hollywood beach house. Two whole sides of the house are glass doors that face the ocean and the pool and just to walk around is delightful. It is not a huge space and the inside of the villa is not for the person who is planning to lay on the couch and watch TV but the seating is arranged nicely. It is a true Island house (yet modern!). We are a family of 5, kids ages at 14, 10 and 12. We never even turned on the TV. You are just not inside but the villa is cleaned every day, super unique showers and sheets are even changed. AC great. Every morning I would go sit in the little gazebo and drink coffee, go and look for sea glass and shells on the beach in front of the house then I would drive to St Jean for croissants at Maya's to go or to Gustavia and both are truly 5 minute drives. You have to have a car but everywhere you could want to go to is a 5 minute drive. La Flammands Beach is beautiful and the perfect place to take kids to swim (BYO masks from US as they are SO expensive-we brought ours and it was perfect). St Jean is lovely, Shell Beach is like a true French Beach, like Cinquer Terre, but Flammands is THAT beach you see on postcards. Eat at Isle de France for lunch and they will let you enjoy chairs on the beach all day. Eat with your toes in the sand. We loved all our meals but prepare yourselves for the cost. Bit of a jaw drop the first day or so then you just go with it. Eden Rock was amazing. Bonito, amazing. Black Ginger- Outstanding, Eddies, delightful. All had GF men items. The grocery store I went to is Marche U at St Jean. Remember - it is FRENCH. 100%. They have some gluten free Scharr mostly, but in Gustavia there is an American Gourmet Market that has every gourmet food you've seen in any boutique in America! Fun just to look. Lots of GF items. Not cheap. AS far as GF, we ate all week in restaurants and it was fine. The food is so fancy, homemade and good it is almost GF by nature. If you arrive, as we did, after dark..there is a small little restaurant you can walk to from the villa. It is a local spot and the owners are very nice. But you can get a shrimp creole dish and your kids can get a hamburger and not have sticker shock the first night at 8 pm after travel. Go left out of the drive and it might be 4 houses down on the right? Yes- do rent this house! One small complaint- The master bed is hard as a rock. We switched rooms and made the kids sleep there! It was a divine get away."Guest: Traveler from Virginia Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: March 17, 2014View listing
"The Chloe Villa is a gem. Tucked away from immediate neighbors situated on a large old St. Bart's family's property with amazing views of Gustavia AND St.Jean. Well equipped and comfortable. The pool area is quite tight. We did not spend any time in it. Instead, to relax and lounge, we used our large and 3way open terrace with unobstructed views of Gustavia. It is a romantic paradise for 1 couple. The other bedroom is attached to the living rm. terrace. The villa is well designed considering the steep property. We would definitely return. A wonderful restaurant "Santa Fe" is within 4 min drive. Laura- the proprietor- was accommodating and prompt communicator."Guest: Anonymous Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: August 13, 2014View listing
"We had such a lovely time during our stay at Villa Affriole in St Barth. It is a great location just up the hill from Flamands Beach and Isle de France with an amazing view, and perfect for our family. The villa is immaculately clean and beautiful, but not stuffy. The local caretakers were very helpful to us, as were the owners. We had a wonderful vacation."Guest: Had a great vacation at Villa Affriole Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 16, 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.
