Le Bulletin December 2015


Villa Sous La Falaise

I’m happy to report that I’ve settled in here on St. Barth for the season. We arrived the evening of December 8 and enjoyed a first-night-back-on-the-island dinner at The Hideaway. It was one of their theme nights and loads of fun! The island is bustling as we all prepare for the holidays, and Gustavia looks lovelier than ever all decked out. Have I tempted you? We still have some terrific villas “under our tree” – take a peek and contact one of our specialists via our website’s chat feature or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots.

I hope to see you on the island and at our weekly client cocktail party. Join us on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 7:30 pm harbor side at Bagatelle. We recommend staying on for dinner. You’ll love it!

Happy Holidays to you and yours from our team at St. Barth Properties.

Peg Walsh, President

Villas of St. Barth


Villa Sous La Falaise

Villa Sous La Falaise We are pleased to welcome Villa Sous La Falaise to our portfolio. Ideally located just across the water from St. Jean Beach, the pillars of its covered porch frame an iconic vista. Its four en suite bedrooms are housed in three charming bungalows connected via a stone path, and all have a view of the sea. The main house incorporates a well-laid-out, comfortable living room, a spacious well-equipped kitchen and a guest bath. A wealth of special features includes a private dock, a natural wading pool (perfect for little ones), an expansive lower-level pool terrace and a gazebo with a BBQ. Guests can take a short path to a private area by the beach or just swim on over there, and St. Jean Village, with its abundance of restaurants and shops, is within walking distance.


Villa Manonjul

Villa Manonjul November villa inspections included a stop at the hillside Manonjul in Devé to see the renovations that include a fresh, contemporary décor and new glam bathrooms. Manonjul’s stunning views remain the same! The main house has three en suite bedrooms, spacious indoor living and a sunny, expansive pool deck with an adjacent gazebo. An independent one bedroom bungalow privately located nearby makes for the four bedroom Manonjul Estate.


Villa Rocamadour

Villa Rocamadour We’re sure that all our clients who’ve stayed at – and loved ‒ the charming Villa Rocamadour will be tempted to return for a mid-winter break and take advantage of a 20% discount available January 13-24 (7 night minimum). The villa is terraced into the Colombier hillside, and the views of Flamands Bay are breathtaking and can be enjoyed particularly well when you are poolside or on the en suite bedroom’s private terrace. We love the romantic king-size 4-poster bed.
