The Villa La Baleine (The Whale) takes its name from the fact that we can observe the migration of whales ever year. You will appreciate the beauty and the romance of the sunsets from the deck of the pool.
Villa la Baleine is a lovely Antillean-style villa located high on the west side of Colombier. La Baleine consists of several traditional style cases in a multi-level compound that includes a private courtyard and a charming gazebo where you can view magnificent sunsets. There is lots of outdoor seating, living and dining areas.
The modern fully equipped kitchen has a covered outside dining area that leads to the newly refurbished deck and pool . The gazebo and deck offer panoramic sea views looking out to Gustavia harbor along with views of Saba, Saint Eustatius, Saint Kitts and Nevis. La Baleine is off of a private road and offers complete privacy. The design is local, charming and cheerful with bright pastel colors. The property is spacious and was designed to take advantage of the panoramic view.
The beaches of Flamands and St. Jean are only a few minutes' drive away. La Baleine is minutes away from the best bakery on the island and very convenient to both St. Jean and Gustavia.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2000
Next month will be our 4th stay at La Baleine: obviously, I am a fan. Wonderful, clean, and private villa in a great location. It is famous for its gazebo: perfect vantage point to enjoy one's coffee and chocolate croissant. As mentioned by the other reviews, Rosita is wonderful. During my first trip to St Barth's 4 yrs ago, she was amazing in helping me through the process of renting my first villa in a new vacation spot. She fielded all 4000 questions with grace and a smile. Cannot say enough about her and this fantastic villa.
I would like to start out by saying that I have not stayed at this villa, but do have friends that have rented this villa several times and absolutely love it! I am writing this review to compliment Rosita, the owner. My friends were staying here and it coincided with her birthday. I spoke with Rosita prior to their arrival to get information on how I could have flowers/ champagne etc. delivered to their villa. Rosita took CARE OF EVERYTHING!!!. She was very kind and took the time to arrange for not only champagne and cheese to be waiting for them, but also a personalized birthday cake! This went well beyond what I expected (I was just hoping for the name of a florist!) and more than what was necessary. I look forward to someday staying at this beautiful Villa!
My husband and I just spent 8 nights at La Baleine which went over New Years. La Baleine has one of the best views of the super huge yachts which have to park outside of the harbour because their immense size. The views are even more outstanding at night when the yachts are all lit up. The villa is meticulously maintained with a beautiful deck around the pool and a gazebo for shade. We had breakfast in the gazebo every morning. It's the PERFECT breakfast spot! I'd always take the binoculars with me to get a closer look at the magnificent yachts and sailboats. We enjoyed the villa so much that we'd end up leaving the beaches early just do we'd have lots of time to spend sitting on the deck and taking in those gorgeous views. I also have to mention how sweet Rosita is. She's extremely friendly and made sure we had the perfect vacation. Thank you, Rosita!!!
