Jeff McGrew purchased this villa in 2001
We vacationed in the Caribbean and fell in love with St Barts. We looked all over the island for a villa and Flamands was our first choice. Flamands Blue is in a beautiful neighborhood and the location is pefect since it's away from the noise and bussle of St Jean and Gustavia and within walking distance to the beautiful Flamands Beach.
Flamands Blue sits high and there is no one above you.
Views off both terraces (one sun---the other shaded) are spectacular. It's decorated in crisp bright blue and turquoise 'beach house' colors that eveyone loves.
As you slide back the curtain first thing in the morning you will savor the ocean view right off the master suite.
In the evening we and our Guests look forward to stepping out the master into the warm Jacuzzi with nothing above but stars and the sound of the ocean waves on the beach below----a truly magical place...
On the practical side: there are many 'American' features not found in others... such as top/bottom handrails, LED lighted steps and switches on the stairs plus screens---not to mention the villa is completely non-smoking.
Fact: you will not stay in a superior location on St Barts or a better mainted private villa than Flamands Blue!
My husband surprised me with this trip for our 40th anniversary, and he hit it out of the park! This was hands-down the best VRBO rental experience ever. The villa is beautiful and in pristine condition. Everything you need is there, and the staff is professional, attentive and responds immediately. The views are amazing and the location convenient, yet it feels private and serene. Best of all, the owner Jeff was so helpful, giving us insider advice on what to do and see. He and Caroline took us to dinner Friday night, and they are a warm and delightful couple. They truly want you to love St. Barth as much as they do, and to have the best trip ever - and we did!
We LOVE this Villa and the location! The property owner Jeff, and his entire staff, went the extra mile to make sure we had the most pleasurable and memorable experience... and we absolutely did! The Villa is the quintessential St Barth experience - beautifully decorated with all modern conveniences and AMAZING views!! You are close to everything, including Flamand Beach which is just a short walk away. We stayed for a week and wished we could have stayed longer. Every morning we had fresh croissants from one of the the local bakeries (which in our opinion was the best on the island and is a very short drive away) out on our balcony so we could enjoy the view of the mountainside and the subtle breeze from Flamand Beach just below. Anytime we needed anything our Villa manager was there to assist and was especially helpful with recommendations. Jeff was VERY helpful with assisting and guiding us while we planed our trip and even helped make arrangements for our car service and other details along the way - We cannot imagine staying anywhere else. We HIGHLY recommend Jeff and Flamand Blue!
Flamands Blue is our getaway in paradise as we leave the winter snows behind. We are regular visitors to St. Barth’s and are so glad that we found this villa two years ago. It is situated in a perfect location with spectacular views but within walking distance of Flamands Beach. The house is bright and airy and well appointed. We have enjoyed many delicious meals on the wrap-around porch while taking in the magnificent view of Flamands Beach and Ile Bonhomme. Jeff, the owner, is a most welcoming and caring person, always intent on making sure that you have a wonderful stay. Diana greets guests with a smile and is very helpful. Fi and Richard, the housekeepers, are very friendly and do a wonderful job of keeping the place neat and clean. We are already looking forward to our stay next year!
We stayed at Jeff’s villa in January, 2015. Jeff was extremely helpful in making all necessary arrangements including transport from St. Maartin, and a rental car in St. Barths prior to our arrival. Once we arrived, Jeff’s greeter met us at the airport, drove us to the villa, and had the unit stocked with everything we requested. It was a very smooth process from start to finish. Overall, the villa is a really good value. You are situated within walking distance to one of the best beaches on the Island (Flamands), and a short drive to Gustavia where most of the island’s best bars and restaurants are located. The villa was clean and well maintained, and the bedrooms were comfortable and air conditioned. If you are the type of traveler that likes to get out and explore, you can’t beat the price and location of this villa. It is a great value for this over the top island.
We had seen the pictures online, but were wowed by the pristine villa. It was everything we wanted for our honeymoon - quiet, beautiful, great views! The ambience of this place is charming and relaxing. Above all, the owner, Jeff, went out of his way to ensure we had a great honeymoon. It was perfect for us: an unforgettable honeymoon experience and a calm place for me to prepare for the last lap of my PhD. I am hoping to return with my wife, soon, and of course it will be Flamands Blue Villa again!
I can't recommend Jeff or this villa enough. This was our first trip to St. Bart's, as well as first time using vrbo.com. I was a little apprehensive at first with the thought of dealing with a private owner and not a hotel for our vacations plans. After doing quite a bit of research, and discovering that Jeff, the owner, was also a fairly active member on the St Bart's forum website, I felt much more at ease.
The Villa has a wonderful view from both floors. Its about a 3-4 minute walk to Flamands beach. We were interested in seeing all of the beaches and although it seems on the map to be in the far corner of the island, we were never more than 10 minutes car ride from wherever we went.
Jeff sent us a long list of things to know/bring ahead of time, as well as many recommendations for restaurants and beaches for the trip. He had someone meet us at the airport and drive to the villa with us after getting our car. He called the first day to check how everything was, as well as mid-week to check on us again. It was like having a concierge with us.
Each day after coming back from the beach, we would sit on the deck, eat some cheese and fruit and look down at Flamands Bay. The villa was very clean, and had a maid service ever other day to clean and change the towels and linens. We were very happy with the rental, and will be back!
GORGEOUS BEACHES, walk to Horseback Riding, sunbathing, shelling and a St, Barts classic--people watching!
