Amazing property; amazing view

  • 5 of 5

Two couples enjoyed our week at Kawai. The equal bedrooms with comfortable king beds and ensuite bath gave each couple privacy. The common areas were very comfortable and the gazebo provided not only protection from the sun, but there was always a pleasant breeze. The breathtaking 180 degree view is beyond description. It is a quiet, private villa and I would not hesitate to recommend.

Exceptional value and in a beautiful and secluded location. We had a great time and the villa was clean, well appointed and had a great breeze to keep you cool during the day. Would definitely return.

Awesome Villa and Experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our first visit to St Barths, and it was a great experience. The villa was located in an ideal part of the island near many restaurants and the handful of grocery stores on the island. The views were amazing, and Carole was a great host! We will definitely stay here again.

Gorgeous views and an amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Kawai for 5 nights. Our trip was amazing. The villa is perfectly located, near all amenities such as beaches, all major resorts, supermarkets, restaurants etc. Our first night we had Chef Jacques cook for us, it was an amazing meal, he catered to all our dietary restrictions. Outside of his meal we prepared some meals at the Villa but mostly ate at nearby restaurants. Our kids enjoyed Jojo burger quite a bit.

The villa is set at the top of the Vitet Hill, giving you spectacular views of St. Maarten and Anguilla. Can't go wrong with this villa. It's well equipped for a wonderful getaway. We will definitely come back again and are very sad to leave.

An enchanting villa and stay....Carole is the best!

  • 5 of 5

Hands down the best VRBO experience we have had to date. (this is significant considering we consider ourselves VRBO aficionados, if not experts). We have rented countless villas on several islands as well as have owned our own VRBO property and have very high expectations. We were not disappointed. The experience was seamless (thanks mostly in part to Carole, who not only responded to our every request in a timely fashion with a genuine smile on her face, but also anticipated our needs beyond our expectations).

The villa is impossible to describe in words but "enchanting" is the best I can do. The location, vistas, décor, quality of construction and upkeep are *****. But the small details are what won us over... from the fully stocked kitchen (we made all of our own meals except one thanks to Mark's chef training), to the outdoor Bose speakers, reliable wifi, heated pool, security gate, layout of the villa (privacy for each couple along with intimate gathering spots), etc. The extra touches (champagne chilling in the fridge upon our arrival, quality linens, extra sunscreen, bugspray, etc just in case) took away any possible potential headache that could have arisen. We have several discussions based on how it could even be potentially improved and after one week could only come up with the suggestion of ceiling fans in the bedrooms and jaccuzi on the West deck (neither needed but we tried to come up with something!)

Beaches: Visited Gouverneur, Saline, St. Jean, Shell, Columbier, (worth the hike), Grand Cul-de-Sac. We snorkeled at each beach and saw many fish but later wished we had been able to talk to the owner of the snorkel/scuba shop on Grand Cul-de-Sac when we picked up our gear as he had many more reliable sites he recommended.

We found the Oasis market to be the best spot to find groceries (best selection) and visited the local fish market' on L'orient every AM around 8am to get the best selection of fresh fish (lobster was phenomenal). We were surprised to find every day supplies and groceries inexpensive (due to lack of import tax) and found good wine/liquor even less expensive than at home (USA).

We had a beautiful meal at Black Ginger (Thai) in Gustavia. We went to Eden rock for relaxation/drinks but decided a 30 euro drink was not worth it, but enjoyed the beach nonetheless. Form Fitness = nice gym.

We will be back! Mark & LuAnn
