About Guy URBINO
I have been living in Guadeloupe for more than 20 years. I am an engineer and a company manager.
Guy URBINO purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Guy URBINO chose Sainte-Anne
I often spent wonderful holidays in Sainte-Anne. Then, I got the idea of creating areas dedicated to vacation rental.
What makes this Villa unique
The best is the unique ambiance of the place: extreme relaxation, quiet and joy. During almost the whole year, the beach and its surroundings allow the locals, the regular visitors, and the holiday-makers to enjoy the beneficial effects of the sea, and of meeting other people.

Perfect House and Great Location!
My family of four, two boys ages 14 and 17, stayed at this house for a week in February.
The house was just perfect for us: two large bedrooms, fully stuffed kitchen, large family/dinning room with a wall opening up to an outside yard protected with a large privacy fence, private off road parking.
The location is just great where everything is within two-three minutes walk: town beach with great swimming and palm trees providing natural shade, cafe shops with fresh pastries, coffee, and ice cream (that my kids could not get enough of), fresh bread from local bakery, grocery store, fruit and vegetable stands, many restaurants to choose from or places to buy ready food to go.
Other Beaches: Club Med within 5 minutes drive (about 1.5mi) with ample parking, nice swimming, water sports for rent. Multiple other beach options with a car.
Perfect Vacation Spot
I stayed for a week with my family of 4 and it was perfect for us. It's only one block from a very popular beach and surrounded by restaurants and cafes. While we had a car with us, we didn't need it. Everything you need is in walking distance. While you do share the parking area with the guests in the rear unit, that was fine. We only saw them coming and going a few times. It's still very private. It is in the heart of activity so it's not quiet, but noise was never a distraction and things did quiet down at night. I would stay here again without and concerns.
Our weeklong stay in this villa was just what we were looking for. Great location just a block from the town beach and around the corner from the center of town. Everything was exactly as advertised and the owners were always responsive and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed having this villa as our home base on the island.
Great apartment! We highly recommend for anyone who wants to stay in Sainte Anne.
My husband, college roommate and I stayed in this 2 bedroom apartment for 10 days. It is very well-kept, has a spacious living room, washing machine, dish washer, wi-fi, air conditioning in the bedrooms--everything you'd want for a long vacation. It is two blocks away from three markets if you want to cook, and within a 30 second walk of 10+ restaurants/bars if you do not want to cook.
The nearby beach (which is a 1 minute walk away) is nice but can be quite busy. It wasnt an issue for us because we rented a car and went to different areas on both islands. Another nice thing about the apartment is that there is a dedicated parking spot in front of the unit.
Guy, his wife and son were very friendly and helpful, even though we arrived quite late to the unit. They made everything easy.
I have no complaints, but I do have one word of advice for North Americans to note since the VRBO practice is different in the US/Canada: there were no basics (salt, pepper, olive oil, trash bags, etc) so you'll have to buy/bring what you want. Had I known, I would have brought small baggies of spices so to not have to buy larger containers. Again, this place is wonderful so do not let that deter you!
Perfect Property and Perfect Location
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this property and the owners.
We arrived on a Tuesday Evening and the owner and his son met us at the property. The rental is actually located on a duplex so if this one is not available, make sure to check the availability on their other property which shares the same compound.
The owners-natives of the island- were great to answer questions in both French and English prior to our arrival. We were able to talk to them when we arrived at the airport and got directions to the location.
We were able to park our rental car in a secured gated parking space on the property.
Outside: This property is in the front of the compound facing a beautiful garden and the street. We were able to people watch in the morning and enjoy birds in the yard.
Inside: The rental is updated and extremely clean. The bathroom facilities consist of a separate room for the toilet and a separate room for the sink and shower. Therefore me and my friend had no issues sharing the one bathroom. The shower pressure was excellent!
There are two bedrooms with full shelving and closets in each. The bedrooms each had twin beds that can be pushed together or separated. The air conditioner units were both operational and kept the room perfectly cool. We enjoyed the ability to sleep in comfort in our own rooms.
The linens and towels were all clean.
The living room and dining room are spacious with a wall that opens up to the outside. The kitchen had everything we needed! We cooked breakfast everyday. There is a grocery store down the block where we bought eggs. There is a bakery and cafe where we bought coffee and croissants.
The beach: Saint Anne Beach is literally down the road. A two minute walk at most. Pretty and popular beach. We had a great time
The neighborhood: The house is next door to a restaurant we are at on the first night but make sure you make reservations. There is a coffee and gelato shop near the corner that we sat and enjoyed cappuccino with locals every morning. You are near Saint Anne Market and tons of beach restaurants. If you walk down the street there is a water obstacle course that was so fun and only 9 euro for 1 hour.
We were in a great location and drove to other cities in Grand Terre with no issue. We also went to Basse Terre. The house is off a main road for the island so you can go everywhere.
I hope to return to the island and I hope this property is available.
Beautiful ocean side house in great location
The hosts were amazing and thoughtful! The house has a beautiful garden, inside a brand new kitchen and new bathroom. Fans and air conditioning in the room for hot nights.
A couple minutes walk to the beach, and near a lovely boulangerie and super markets.
I loved every part of my stay! Will be back soon.
