Villa Ylang-Ylang

I hope you are enjoying summer with family and friends. If you are not quite ready to say goodbye to sublime beach days and you long for a few more sultry sunsets, contact one of our villa specialists via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. A visit to St. Barth is a perfect way to extend your summer. September and October are quieter months on the island, with many of the shops, hotels and restaurants closed, but guests still have lots of options including one of last season’s most popular newbies, Quartier Général.

Things are busy in our Franklin, MA office. We are working on our new Live Your Dream® catalogue and getting ready for the upcoming season. We’ll launch it with a party for our owners, partners, and clients on December 7 at the gorgeous 5 star Le Barthélemy Hotel & Spa. There’ll be much to celebrate – our beloved St. Barth’s triumphant comeback and (drum roll please) St. Barth Properties’ 30th Anniversary! If you are staying in one of our villas or hotels, we’d love to have you join us. Remember, Value Season pricing will still be in effect, and there are so many lovely options to choose from.

I hope to see you on the island!

SBP News

We are pleased to partner with Le Barthélemy Hotel & Spa to offer our clients some special perks and privileges. Make a seaside breakfast or lunch reservation (through our concierge) and enjoy the complimentary use of lounge chairs – before or after, on the beach or by the pool. Your breakfast bill will be €35.00 instead of €45.00, and if you visit for lunch you’ll be offered a complimentary apéritif of your choice. At the spa you have your choice of a 10% discount on services or 30 extra minutes for your treatment (excluding La Mer Facials). Dinner reservations booked through our concierge begin with a complimentary glass of Champagne or an apéritif. These offers are exclusive to St. Barth Properties’ clients. Your Welcome Package will include a personalized VIP card, which is to be presented to the hotel staff to secure the perks and discounts.

THE SBP BEACH PICNIC
We say pack a towel and let us do the rest. Choose your beach and then contact our concierge team to arrange for chairs, an umbrella and a gourmet lunch, complete with a bottle of rosé, to be delivered at the time of your choice. Our concierge will provide all the details and options.


An SBP Beach Picnic setup on beautiful Gouverneur Beach

We recently heard from a client who opted to have the lunch and wine delivered to their villa as a birthday surprise for her husband. She shared: “It was so nice to hike and spend the morning on Colombier Beach, return to our villa by noon, shower and then enjoy a refreshing lunch delivered poolside by 12:30pm! The lunch was AMAZING: a "Fête des Jardins” Four-Course Gourmet Tapas Lunch. We enjoyed tuna tartare & small crab legs with sauces, fresh vegetable & shrimp rice wraps with sweet & sour sauce, smoked salmon & ham finger sandwiches, followed by succulent sliced mangos, pineapples, kiwis and melons, finishing up with chocolate volcano cupcakes.” Brenda, Toledo, Ohio

Restaurants

We are happy to announce that one of the island’s most popular restaurants – Santa Fé – reopened last month. Extensive post-Irma renovations have left this hillside eatery better than ever, and oh, those views and breezes. Their annual closing began August 25 and they will reopen for the season around October 20. We can’t wait. Read all about it in Peg’s Blog.
