  • Description

    Located on St. Barthélemy, Villa Caribe is one of the first villa rentals of the plantation owners or "planteurs" from Guadeloupe who settled this little paradise. The house is designed for tropical living: natural ventilation, big bay windows, which open wide, and a hillside location caressed by the trade winds, but out of range of storms and above the heat of the coast. Villa Caribe is nestled among the flowering hills of St. Jean, just 400 yards from the beach with no close neighbors but within walking distance of la Villa Créole with its restaurants and shops. The seascapes provided by the breathtaking 180-degree ocean view vary constantly, and the sunset provides a colorful spectacle each evening at cocktail hour, known locally as l’heure du planteur. An "L"-shaped swimming pool, located just beyond the living area, and the deck (constructed of precious tropical woods) create surroundings for the house that are both striking and practical.

    Villa Caribe is organized in the spirit of the sumptuous life of the planters’ houses but with a sense of intimacy, and is decorated with antique colonial furnishings. There are two suites with their own bathrooms, a guest room, a large living room and a dining room.

    Included in the rental price: Transportation from the airport upon arrival, all linens and towels, two hours of housekeeping each weekday, water, electricity, and air conditioning

    The first floor of Villa Caribe offers a living room with spectacular sea views, with direct access to the pool area. The dining room seats six at a large, colonial, round table. The kitchen is well equipped with a stove, oven, fridge/freezer with icemaker, microwave, and dishwasher. The elegant master suite includes two king-size beds, an ensuite bathroom, a large library with writing table, a flat-screen TV with Satellite, and a small lounge area (with sofa) opening onto the deck and pool. The second bedroom has been redecorated in an elegant, but lively, style and offers two twin beds (convertible to a king) and a separate bathroom with toilet and shower. The second floor of Villa Caribe consists of a large bedroom suite, which is composed of two rooms and a terrace. The bedroom has a king-sized, colonial style bed, with ensuite bathroom. The small office offers a sofa and DSL Internet access, for relaxation or work, and a flat-screen TV with Satellite.

    There are fourteen beaches on St. Barths, all blessed with gleaming white sand. Few are crowded, even in peak season. All are public and free. Nudism is ostensibly prohibited; topless is not unusual. For beaches with hotels, restaurants, and water sports, Grand Cul de Sac fits the bill, as does St. Jean, which is actually two beaches divided by the Eden Rock promontory. There are a smattering of hotels and restaurants at Flamands, a huge stretch of white sand fringed with lantier palms.

    The village of Corossol verges on a lovely beach that serves the practical purpose of a fishing port. The beaches at Marigot and Lorient are secluded and quiet, favored on Sundays by island families. Petit Cul de Sac is secluded, and usually very quiet; Toiny is wild and beautiful, not for the faint hearted. Gouverneur is serene; Saline is well worth the hike over the sand dune. Shell Beach can be reached on foot from Gustavia; Public, pronounced "poobleek", near the commercial pier, is fine for a quick dip. Hardest to get to is Colombier, reachable by boat from Gustavia or by a half- hour hike down a scenic path.
