Le Bulletin -July 2015
I hope you are enjoying your summer. If you are planning a getaway, August in St. Barth would be a great choice. And if you are a music lover, it would be even better. Summer Sessions, the now annual – and better each year – rock concert is on from August 5 to August 15. DJs, singers and bands will be upping the action at Tom Beach’s La Plage and venues all over the island. St. Barth Properties is pleased to be one of the event sponsors.
We’ve set the date of November 12 for our annual launch-the-season soirée, and once again we are delighted to invite all of our clients to join us. The 5 star Taïwana Hotel will be the venue for an elegant cocktail party, and we’ll enjoy hearty hot and cold hors d’oeuvres and small plates served seaside. Music by Soley and DJ Yo-One – and fun for all! November is a terrific time to vacation on St. Barth; everything is newly opened, and excitement for the season bubbles like, well, Champagne. Take advantage of the Value Season rates and join us.
I hope to see you on the island.
Peg Walsh, President

Villas of St. Barth
We are pleased to welcome the newly refreshed Villa Marlin II to our portfolio as an exclusive listing.
Located directly on Gustavia’s picture-postcard harbor, this luxurious one bedroom tiered apartment almost seems to sit amidst the gently bobbing boats. The sound of the languorously lapping waves is delightful – and soothing. Guests love the covered terrace for cocktails and alfresco dining, complete with its view of all the maritime activity. A compact well-equipped kitchen includes a bar and opens to a chic and comfortable air-conditioned living-dining area. The master (king) bedroom is on the top level with an adjacent bath. A convenient mezzanine-level guest bath includes a shower. Marlin II is within walking distance to Gustavia’s restaurants and boutiques and Shell Beach.

Villa and Hotel Specialist Kathy Schlitzer recently returned from an island inspection trip. We are pleased to share her trip report.
This year, the harborside Baz Bar is open for the rest of the summer with a revised menu (they have scrumptious sushi) and great live band shows. The entertainment is “hot,” with groups like reggae legend Steel Pulse, Blue Birds of Paradise and the amazing Lynette Williams.
Summer Sessions will be rocking it across the island from August 5 to August 15.

...My husband and I have not stopped talking about our trip to St. Barth and Villa Blue Diamond ... from the minute the door opened and I saw how beautiful the villa was and the amazing view. We really liked all the details, like having the sound system piping music inside and out and enjoying our wine and cheese soaking in the view. Sometimes I felt like I was in a painting! I’m dreaming of next year....
