Villa Affriole--Million Dollar View!

Property type villa

About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

We just had a last minute cancellation for the week of the St. Barth's Bucket. Please contact us if you would like to be there to experience the regatta. More than 40 super yachts will be competing during 3 days of racing around the island.

To seduce or charm, that is the French meaning of the word, Affriole'; and Villa Affriole' will seduce and charm you into a wonderful, relaxing vacation. Our villa is located high on the hillside with a breathtaking view of the sea. You will have at your disposal all of the necessary amenities for a perfect vacation-and more-a lovely garden with bougainvillea and oleander, a private pool and a covered terrace with an unobstructed view of the Baie of Flamands. Listen to the surf while enjoying meals on the terrace.

This comfortable, charming villa has three bedrooms all with king-size beds. The master bedroom has an attached bathroom that has just been completely renovated with beautiful tile from Portugal. It has a very large shower and two sinks. Please see the photo. The second bedroom has a king size bed and the third bedroom has a king bed that can be converted to twin beds to accommodate all types of sleeping arrangements. There are 2 1/2 baths. The house can sleep six people privately and comfortably, yet just two will feel cozy as well. You have the entire villa to yourself whether you rent one, two or three bedrooms.

A delightful day on St. Barths begins with breakfast overlooking the sea, and continues with a refreshing swim, aperitifs on the terrace, a wonderful dinner and a peaceful night's sleep in a comfortable, king-size bed. Villa Affriole provides all of the comforts of home and the luxury of a vacation in Paradise!

This open style villa is within walking distance of the spectacular white sands of Flamands Beach. Flamands Beach was rated the most beautiful beach in St. Barths by Conde Nast magazine.

St. Barths is a small island, 8 square miles. A short drive from the villa will take you to a delightful boulangerie for daily pastries and a fresh baguette. Within ten minutes you can be in Gustavia with its fashion boutiques, art galleries, wonderful restaurants and the beautiful harbor. A stroll along the quai at sunset is a sheer delight.

For those who feel the need to stay in touch, the villa is WiFi equipped.

We have added screens to the living area to add to your comfort and experience.

Villa Affriole and St. Barths will renew your spirit!

Simply Amazing !

  • 5 of 5

This is truly an amazing property! The pictures of the view and of the villa simply cannot capture the beauty and the wow factor of being here. Simply spectacular!

Of course, the same goes for the entire island. You can feel the unique French culture in every restaurant and boutique. Everyone is very, very friendly and they clearly recognize how important tourists are to the economy and they do not disappoint.

I have a dear friend who has played bass in Jimmy Buffett's Coral Reefer Band for 28 years and he confirmed the rumor that Buffett did indeed write " Cheeseburger In Paradise" at Le Select, a neat little honky tonk in Gustavia. So, for Parrot Heads that is a must see. But of course, there is an amazing diversity of restaurants from friendly taverns to fine dining and some of the best are within walking distance of the villa.

There was very little evidence of the hurricane and St. Barth's was open for business and ready to astound. Which it did. This is our second visit to the villa and it will not be our last.

You cannot go wrong renting this villa. Doug and Kathy are easy to work with and love to welcome visitors to St. Barth's and Villa Affriole!

Fantastic Island and Accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely villa. We enjoyed the porch for breakfast every morning as we looked out over the ocean and we enjoyed the pool and deck every night as the sun went down. Very convenient to the beach and easy to navigate the island from the location. St Bart's seems to embody the very best of the French culture and we really appreciated that. You guys have a beautifully decorated villa and we enjoyed ourselves so much that we do want to visit again and tell our friends. Really very special and thank you so much for the wonderful welcome and recommendations.

Even Better than I remembered !!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about this property, the owners, and the experience in St. Barths. Book a trip now, you will never regret it.

This was my second visit to this lovely Island and Villa Affriole. Lots of incredible updating since I was here just a couple of years ago. Master bath totally remodeled, reminds me of a luxury spa. Nice heavy towels, etc. Love the new doors to the bedrooms, and the new furniture. Dining room furniture also upgraded. Since this was my second trip, things came a little more naturally. The morning and evening walk to Flamands Beach became second nature. One day of heavy rain was spent just sitting on the deck, watching the rain and clouds go by. Very relaxing and peaceful. Housekeeper came daily, and was in and out in flash. Weather was quiet warm, so the pool was a great place to take a dip and cool off. Although I was a little concerned about visiting "off season", I don't regret it at all. We had the beaches to ourselves. Who could ask for more???

My wife and I spent an amazing week in St. Barth's made even more spectacular by staying at Villa Affriole. The view from the balcony is now my screen saver!! Love the vivid colors of the Villa and the private pool was icing on the cake! Great location as everything seemed to be a 10 minute or less drive. We visited St. Jean beach and had lunch at La Plage, which was outstanding! Do yourself a favor and get the truffle cheeseburger. We also spent a day at Gouverneur Beach which is very secluded and simply amazing! The daily maid service was much appreciated as it was wonderful to come back from the beach to find a cleaned Villa. The owners were also very easy to work with and communicated often with us. We have already booked our return trip for next year.....can't wait!!! :)

Amazing Villa!

  • 5 of 5

The four of us (2 couples) couldn't have had a better stay! This villa was spacious, a close walk to Flamands Beach, had a private pool, huge open concept layout, two decks, and an Amazing view!

The villa is offered at a great rate! Especially for St. Barth's, where everything is expensive, this villa offered everything villas for 3 times as much offer, including two reserved private parking spots! The owner's took care of one of our rental cars, which was nice to fly in to the island and to see my name on the chalk board for rentals that day.

The cleaning crew was fantastic, as was everything about the villa.

We look forward to staying in the villa again next year!

Lovely Views in Roc Flamands

  • 5 of 5

This property is situated in an absolutely terrific location near Flamands Beach. It is perched on the hillside with fabulous views of the bay. The house is very well-equipped - everything you would need in a kitchen, comfortable tasteful furnishings and good beds. The renovated master bath is gorgeous. The private pool is cloistered under tropical greenery. A Boulangerie is just a short drive up the hill, and luxurious lunches are just downhill at the Cheval Blanc hotel. We will definitely be back!

About Kathy Oliver

We live in Atlanta, Georgia and love to travel. I had planned on visiting every Caribbean Island but then I went to St. Barths and realized that I didn't need to go to any other island.

Kathy Oliver purchased this villa in 2001

Why Kathy Oliver chose Flamands

Like many people, we fell in love with St. Barths on our very first trip and were drawn back time after time. Our dream was to own a home here and the dream came true in 2001. We rented many different villas over the years and I knew that I wanted to be close to Gustavia and have a beautiful view of the sea, this villa fulfilled all of my dreams.

What makes this villa unique

A perfect day in St. Barth's is to wake up to beautiful sunshine, go to the boulangerie for breakfast pastries and a baguette. Then spend some time at the beach, have a great lunch at Andy's or La Gloriette, spend some time resting and reading on the terrace. Maybe go in to Gustavia to shop and walk around the harbor,

then its time for wine and cheese on the terrace. In the evening we either go to one of favorite restaurants, like The Palace or Cote' Port or we also love to eat at home. I love to cook and I enjoy going to the butcher shop in St. Jean and fixing a great meal at home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excerpt from guest book,

What a surprise to find such a beautiful, cozy and truly relaxing villa. Your home is a parardise. We all felt at home here and every thing was just perfect. More than we could have imagined. You were so helpful in all the arrangements and recommendations. It could not have been smoother. As I write this I am trying to figure out when I can come back for another vacation. Please use us as a reference as I would strongly recommend Villa Affriole to anyone!!!
