  • Owner Helpful

    "Great quiet beach location - and a short walk from excitement. Owner was helpful to make everything smooth for us. Facilities were very acceptable and clean. As advice: this is not a resort-like vacation spot and it's expected you look after yourself. Rental car is helpful but if necessary you can find most of what you need 1/2 mile down the beach."

  • 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!"

  • Perfect vacation

    "The penthouse exceeded our wildest expectations. There was so much space and it was stocked with everything, even beach towels. The views from the balconies are to die for. We were there in mid-July and it was quite hot, but the condo always remained cool especially after we returned in the evenings and all the fans and AC had been turned off during the heat of the day. The maid cleaned mid-week and spent hours there, much more in depth than anything we would have expected. I highly recommend Karakter Beach Bar & Cafe where the beach chairs and umbrellas are always free and food and drinks are reasonably priced. It's a short 10 minute walk down the beach. We rented a Jeep and toured the island. Mullet Bay is a "must visit" spot. John and Sharon answered every question we had prior to the trip and even checked in on us during our vacation. We really appreciate their recommendation for Cafe Atlantico right around the corner, which became our go to spot for breakfast that week. This was truly a special spot for a very special vacation."
