  • Unique villa with exceptional views and great location

    "We loved our stay at Villa Karibuni on our recent vacation with our 2 small children (aged 4 and 6). The view is incredible and we especially enjoyed our time lounging on the deck in the mornings or afternoon/evenings and enjoying the pool and the view. Another highlight was utilizing the kayaks and taking them to Pinel Island for the day. It was windy while we were there so the kayaking was a fun challenge to Pinel but it was effortless coming back! The property is waterfront - just a few steps off the deck and you can be in the kayak heading to the nearby sand bar (amazing for photos) or Pinel. When we are in the Carribbean we enjoy exploring different beaches and areas but you could happily go to Pinel each day. Pinel island has lizards and hermit crabs in a certain area away from the beach that the kids discovered and this made Pinel especially fun for them. The water there is very calm too. The beaches we loved other than Pinel were Anse Marcel and Happy Bay a short walk from Friars Bay. We had considered staying in various hotels and were SO glad we chose this villa because we spent our days out and about exploring and when we came home we didn't feel we needed to go out again (unlike being in a hotel room). Since we have small children it was great to hang by the pool sipping cocktails and use the charcoal grill to prepare dinner with the delicious French ingredients available locally. The local village does have some great restaurants which we enjoyed a few nights too. A few small items were missing from the house but Manon was very responsive and made sure we had all we needed. She also can book reservations or excursions and even babysitters. The house was very clean and although not brand new it was nicely and simply appointed. The air conditioning worked just fine for us in the bedrooms and the rest of the house didn't need it because of the ocean breeze plus there is a huge fan. The whole villa has black out shutters so we all slept in! Manon also kindly provided us with snorkeling equipment and kids sand toys which was so nice. The pool has an alarm on it should you wish to use it which is great if you have small kids. I recommend you stay here - we will be going back!"

  • Great location and very nice villa

    "The location was perfect- our 1st time on the French side. We kayaked everyday to Pinel Island. Loved that there is a great sandbar in the middle so we could take a break from rowing and swim around there. Can also stop off at a little beach on a small island in the middle called Little Clef. The open floor plan was perfect for our family. Audrey the property manager was wonderful as well- friendly and extremely responsive. We have rented many homes on a few different islands, and this home and location was one of our top picks. Highly recommend."

  • Perfect house, perfect location, perfect island experience.

    "My family and I stayed here to ring in New Year's and the first week of January 2017. Wow!!! We are all so sad to be back. The house itself is spectacular and has everything one needs to enjoy a truly relaxing and beautiful island experience. We were 8 adults and 3 children and never felt crowded, helped out by the huge outdoor space where we spent much of our time when we were home. Everything was so comfortable. The part of the island we were in (the northwest corner) was perfect. A quiet neighborhood with markets and restaurants nearby. Only 5 minutes to the busier Orient Bay and fairly close to the great shopping and fine dining area of Grand Case. One of the best parts of the house and where we were located was the access we had to the stunning little island of Pinel which we kayaked to daily. Do not miss this little gem if you come here. The beach is beautiful and the snorkeling trail around the reef worth exploring. The house comes with 2 kayaks and we were only a short walk to Caribbean Paddling - a little company where we could rent more when we needed. The pool was on the small size but beautifully maintained as was the rest of the house. We sat outside on the deck almost nightly and ate dinner as a family. A couple small issues that came up were very quickly resolved, as Maly, the property manager was extremely communicative and attentive. All in all, a fantastic holiday. We can't wait to be back and can't imagine staying anywhere else!"
