Le Bulletin - August 2014
Are you enjoying your summer? We hope so! The island is enjoying its annual music festival, Summer Sessions. On a dozen sunny afternoons and starry nights (August 4-16) guests and residents alike are rocking out at twenty concerts held in selected bars and restaurants. A late-summer getaway to St. Barth is the perfect way to end on a high note. St. Barth Rocks! Music fans, remember to check in with us for next August’s festival dates.
I hope to see you on the island!

We are pleased to welcome Villa Apache to our portfolio.
Villa Apache - Striking, contemporary and luxurious, this 4 bedroom bi-level villa boasts an ideal vacation-location – St. Jean. It’s just minutes from the (world’s-sexiest) beach and its Côte d’Azur-like village replete with bistros, bars and fashion-forward boutiques, yet its hillside location is deliciously private. The main level includes a spacious living room that extends to an expansive pool deck. The large black lava stone infinity pool is gorgeous. A stunning kitchen opens to a covered dining terrace, perfect for alfresco meals with a view of the sea. Come evening, guests can sip an apéritif while the Caribbean sun descends behind the hills. Two bedrooms (French king) are on the main level and connect to the living room; two are on the lower level. All have nicely appointed en suite baths with special features like rain head showers. Villa Apache is an excellent option for friends looking to share a St. Barth villa experience.

Kathy, everything was excellent. The greeters at the airport were very polite and professional. The housekeeper, Colette was very exacting to every detail in her housekeeping responsibilities. It was a very relaxing ten days, and I thank you once again for all your help!
