"A return to Caye Caulker by two of us was nothing but wonderful. Had raved about the island so other three family members were anxious to experience it too. Not disappointed. Manager, Michael, was very helpful. Vacation house and pool just right. Only drawback were mosquitoes- in abundance. Last trip there no bug problems. Go prepared. Only one rainy day. Bike riding around island and the nightly crab dodge is a must as distance to food & drink takes some time. Worth all the time and effort."Guest: Judy Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: October 12, 2014View listing
"snorkel buddy and I found sand dollar in dec 2013 (see review). just back from return visit and still great condo in super location though hill from town seemed to have been higher! jan was again very easy to deal with an accommodating and continues to make improvements - new ice maker refrig and larger 4 person cooler but we were happy with smaller one. jan has changed to viva for management w/o hitch, though we missed bottle of rum in welcome basket in dec, viva provided nice multipocket beach bags for each bedroom which was a nice useful addition. may not get back in another 6 months but will return. though not the least expensive place we've stayed, out of what has been 17 trips to stj since 2004 & 10 different villas, sand dollar has been "best value"."Guest: jerry Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 23, 2014View listing
"This condo was fantastic! Trisha was very easy to work with and she's done a terrific job with condo décor and making it feel comfortable. It's supplied with everything you need. Beach accessories were great - coolers, towels, beach chairs, umbrella, beach bag, etc. It's such a great location - quiet, restaurants are close, out of the resort/noisy areas, wonderful pool, beaches within short walking distance, and lovely views of marina and ocean. You can't beat the price. We will definitely be back and would never hesitate to rent from Trisha again."Guest: Amy Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: March 15, 2014View listing
"This is definitely one of the most ideal vacation rentals we have ever experienced. Pictures do not do this house and property justice - nicer than we could have hoped. The house was so well furnished and comfortable, it was as if it was our own home. The private pier was in great condition with a fish cleaning station and whips to keep the boat away from the pier. The property manager Donny couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. We caught the beginning of a hurricane while it was still a tropical storm. Donny came over and got us a protected slip when the worst night hit. It was amazing - we didn't even have to call him, he just was there! Tahiti beach, just 1/4 mile by boat, was probably the best beach we have ever been to - the most crystal clear water I have ever seen with beautiful palms on the shore and a view of the ocean through Talloo cut. The house was perfect, equipped with everything you need. Don't shop until you check out the kitchen. The rule of thumb is leave anything you want, use anything you want. There were plenty of spices, condiments, coffee filters, and the kitchen utensils and supplies were plentiful and very clean. We fished both in the ocean and the Sea of Abaco. Fished for snapper - got a small one but a keeper and then we hooked a big one! Saw the shark eat our dinner, bait, hook and line! We bought fish for dinner in Hopetown. There is great snorkeling at Mermaid's Reef and then to lunch at Snappa's. Went to Pete's Pub (don't miss this one) and had fabulous coconut cracked conk and Blasters (heaven). Saw a lot of Hopetown and had fresh local conch salad. The huge front porch got a lot of use. We were adopted by the island dog Rigatoni - fed him morning and night. He napped on the porch and acted as guard dog when anyone or animal came near our beach. We were sitting at Cracker P's (another great place right near the house) and he came strolling up the stairs and made himself at home. I miss him. We couldn't have had a better time, unless of course we had stayed longer. Thanks for sharing your slice of heaven!"Guest: Schnookie Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: July 24, 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.
