Nicole and I had a really wonderful trip, thanks to you and the rest of the group who helped organize our time in St Barth. Blue Diamond Villa was perfect, and the staff were all very friendly and responsive. The whole experience was perfect. Can't wait to go back...starting to plan now for our return.
