Le Bulletin -June 2015
I can’t stay away from St. Barth for long. The first week of June saw me back on the island, traveling from one end to the other, out to sea and back again. The “out to sea” was a delightful sunset cruise on Top Loc’s 45-ft. Wayayaï catamaran. We are in the process of planning some special SBP seaworthy client experiences. Fun! We inspected several new luxury villas and are excited to announce that we’ll be adding them to our portfolio – stay tuned.
Our agenda was full of lots of planning meetings for next season including our yearly launch-the-season party, a change in venue for our weekly cocktail party and our annual catalog Live Your Dream®. I love participating in the interview process, which is integral to the catalog’s people and business' profiles and the opportunity it provides to better know our island partners. Invariably, there are more than a few fascinating “Who knews.” If you missed picking up a copy of Live Your Dream®, you can order one through our website, or there’s an e-version online to hold you over until our new edition rolls off the press.
Have a wonderful summer, and I hope to see you on the island!

Julie, the services you provided were amazing, and the villa was perfect in every way. The view, goodness…. We were especially happy once we discovered Spa Sisley at the Christopher just down the hill. St. Barth is now my favorite place on Earth. The combination of French culture and cuisine, Old World charm and Caribbean paradise was magical.
