Newly constructed, this traditional wooden cottage or "case" is located in a calm residential area on the hillside of St. Jean Village on the island of St. Barthélemy. The guesthouse was built to welcome family and friends and is perfect for couples looking for an authentic, charming, comfortable and affordable St. Barth experience.
The small village of Saint Jean is centrally located and just minutes to the most beautiful beaches of Saint Barthélemy by car, as well as supermarkets and pharmacies. On foot, down the hillside, guests can walk to the beaches of Saint Jean, Eden Rock Hotel and restaurants, Nikki Beach and the many boutiques of Saint Jean.
The wooden guesthouse was recently built by local craftsman in the typical St. Barth style, with an exposed wooden roof and wooden shingles, and the doors and windows were refurbished from a old traditional house that was recently demolished. The main structure is painted in white and earth tones and decorated with remnants of the family boating history.
The kitchenette and bathroom are on the main level off the central living room. There is a small table for breakfast and light meals, and a daybed which can be made into a double bed. A spiral staircase leads to a large comfortable bedroom with oversized queen bed (180cm), OR two single beds (90cm x 2), walk in closet and washing machine. The house will be comfortable for a maximum of three adults. Children are welcome (although we caution about a loft like opening and a spiral staircase) and we can loan a boogie board, mask, fins and games/toys to children under 11.
All house linens and beach towels are included. Linens and towels are normally changed once a week. There’s a private washing machine in the cottage for guest use. Additional personalized housekeeping services can be arranged in advance. If you have special needs or specific requests, just let us know.
The cottage is situated in a small tropical garden with partial views of the sea. We are currently in the process of replanting the private garden following hurricane Irma. Guests will find an outdoor table and sun shade as well as a sitting area.
This is a new property for rent but you are welcome to consult our other two properties on VRBO for reviews: La Petite Vigne, Amboise, France and Vinemesa Cabin, Beulah, Colorado.
We’re happy to answer any questions you might have about the cottage or the status of the island.
