"My family and I recently traveled to Grand Cayman and had the pleasure of staying at Conquered Fame on Rum Point. If you've been to Grand Cayman before but never spent time on Rum Point, it is an absolute must! Away from the hustle of 7-mile beach, it is super laid back and has far superior snorkeling right off the beach. We had 7 adults traveling along with my 2-1/2 yr old son. Conquered Fame could not have been better suited to the group of us. Short of an IPOD dock, the house has all of the amenities that we needed for a relaxing beach getaway, including a washer/dryer. The beautifully landscaped entry to the house is so welcoming after a 7 hour trip from New York with a toddler. The entire north wall is glass so has excellent exposure and views of the sunrise each morning. The house is on the beach, and, while it can be pretty windy on the north side, is excellent for swimming. The wind actually makes the sun a little more bearable midday letting us lay out or play our own version of beach bocce (with coconuts). The barrier reef is about 100 yards off the beach and is phenomenal for snorkeling. We were able to see all sorts of fish, lobsters, rays and even a sea turtle right off the house beach! The restaurants in the area, are all true to island form, serving great seafood including conch in all forms (the lionfish ceviche at Tukka on the east end is incredible!). Rum point does a BBQ every Tuesday that should not be missed as well. All of the water related activities have departures directly from Rum Point, which, being walking distance from Conquered Fame, was extremely convenient. We did the bio luminescence kayak tour from Kaibo yacht club right up the road which was absolutely amazing and a must do! TJ and Therese have such a fantastic home in Grand Cayman. I can't picture staying anywhere else on any future visits to the island. Thank you both for facilitating a fantastic vacation for all of us. Best, Jon and family."Guest: Jonathan E.

"What a place!!! Great for diving, long walks on the beach, visit to local restaurants, or just relaxing by the pool. The caretakers (Victor, Naomi and family) were very helpful and friendly. We'll be back."Guest: Diver Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: March 20, 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.
