Le Bulletin June 2021

St. Barth borders are open to vaccinated travelers.

Bonjour, 

Perhaps you’ve heard the longed-for news: effective June 9, 2021, our little island is officially “open”! And we are ready to shout it from the villa-tops. The CDC has designated St. Barth as Level 1 (lowest COVID-19 risk), and the island is now welcoming fully vaccinated travelers from the U.S. and other Orange and Green Zone destinations, per the French government. Current information on testing and protocols is available on our website and is regularly updated. Our team is eagerly waiting to hear from you via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and we are excited to help plan your long-awaited dream vacation. I was fortunate enough to spend 10 delightful days on the island last month. Traveling with some family members, I combined business (meetings and villa and hotel inspections) with pleasure. It is St. Barth! We stayed at Villa Crystal Dream, which we adore for its fabulous St. Jean Beach location, pool and beachy-casual vibe. I loved visiting my longtime favorite restaurants, like Santa Fe, and some exciting new ones. Dinner at Fouquet’s at Le Carl Gustaf, overlooking Gustavia Harbor, was divine. Read more about our stay and island news in the latest issue of Peg’s Blog. Subscribe and you’ll never miss an issue.

Vive St. Barth! I hope to see you on the island soon!

Private Villas

We continue to add new villas to our portfolio. We bet you’ll love these as much as we do. For more information and to book, reach out via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


Villa Cap Azur

Newly Listed - Cap Azur

Luxurious, strikingly modern, and deliciously private, 5 bedroom Villa Cap Azur is right out of the pages of a glossy travel magazine.  Designed to leverage its primo Pointe Milou location, it offers a stunning seascape, glorious sunsets and views of St. Barth’s verdant hillsides from several vantage points−even from the mini-gym tucked away on a lower level.  An airy (and air-conditioned) main-level interior living room is adjacent to a dining area and a sleek kitchen with a marble-topped island. The kitchen is a fun spot for guests to gather and “cook in.”  Cap Azur’s white-on-white palette, with its strategic pops of color, complements the contemporary furnishings and décor. The entire main level looks out to the sea and opens to a deck that runs the length of the villa furnished for relaxing and dining. The deck includes a BBQ area, and its focal point is a heated elongated 40’ infinity pool with the illusion of spilling into the sea below. It is banked with chaise lounges.

Kumara
Villa Kumara

Newly Listed - Kumara

Located directly on popular St. Jean Beach and only minutes from Gustavia’s restaurants and boutiques, Villa Kumara offers an optimum St. Barth villa vacation experience – especially for beach lovers! Guests can enjoy all the beach offers − restaurants, easy access to water sports, their own private beach area, a super-sized heated pool facing the sea, and some terrific people watching! Proximity to the Village’s abundance of shops and restaurants is a bonus. Three en suite bedrooms include 2 masters (king) with office areas housed in separate pavilions. The 3rd is a “bunk room” with a trundle bed located in a lovely rear garden; it can accommodate three children.


Villa White Sun

Newly Listed - White Sun

Combining contemporary design with the old-world charm of the French West Indies. And with its seaside-to-mountaintop views, well, wow! Three luxurious en suite bedrooms will happily house six friends or family members, and guests are all treated to expansive and well-designed outdoor living space. There’s a lengthy porticoed terrace that’s furnished for shaded relaxing and dining. A sunny (all day!) deck boasts a 65-foot-long heated pool and a gazebo-cum-bar. Santé. Indoors, a spacious living room is adjacent to a formal dining area. Our concierge team can arrange for a private chef to serve a special dinner. White Sun is ideal for a celebratory gathering. Who has a “0” birthday coming up?


Villa Elle

Newly Listed - Elle

Vacation styles − and needs – differ, including villa vacations. For those looking for a family retreat, we highly recommend the private and casually elegant Villa Elle. Cliffside in Pointe Milou, guests are treated to a panoramic seascape, delightful trade winds and expansive outdoor living space. Four en suite bedrooms (all with ocean views) are housed separately and are retreats of their own. They’re ideal not just for relaxing but also for working or studying. Elle is perfect for a workcation. Special features include a heated pool, a Jacuzzi, a mini-gym, a massage nook, a fit-for-a-chef eat-in kitchen, and a home cinema. Our concierge team can book in-villa appointments with trainers, massage therapists and private chefs. Consider a longer stay. Your family deserves it!


Villa Niña

Newly Listed - The Villas Niña, Pinta and Maria

We are pleased to add a trio of stunning new 4 bedroom villas that offer space, privacy and the full complement of services and amenities at Pointe Milou’s 5 star Hotel Christopher. What a terrific addition to our portfolio! Facing the sea, the villas’ names give a fun historical nod to the ships of the explorer Christopher Columbus, who discovered our island. Read all about the villas in Peg’s Blog.

Hotels of St. Barth

We proudly partner with and represent some of the island’s most distinctive hotels, and that includes the recently opened 5 star Hôtel Barrière Le Carl Gustaf. Our team did a recent site inspection and pronounced it “stunning!” That description encompassed the chic décor, Instagram-worthy harbor views, bonus sunsets and its marquee restaurant Fouquet’s. We know guests will love the easy access to Shell Beach and the hotel’s très cool beach club experience (and yummy Mediterranean-influenced cuisine) at Shellona. The luxurious Diane Barrière Spa is an oasis-like retreat, but guests can also enjoy massages on their balcony – perhaps after a refreshing dip in their private plunge pool.

Island News

There’s “a wind of optimism” for the 13th edition of the St. Barth CATA-CUP. The dates – November 17-21, 2021 − have been set for this thrilling and popular regatta, now considered to be the premier catamaran regatta in the world. We are on board at St. Barth Sotheby’s International Realty and delighted to announce we will once again sponsor John Casey’s participation. We’re excited!

Food, Glorious Food

St. Barth is known for its world-class cuisine. Its restaurants offer classic – as well as riffs on – French and Cajun cuisine, Italian, Japanese and exquisitely prepared fish, fresh from the Caribbean Sea that laps our shores. Looking for pizza or a juicy burger? We’ve got you covered. And now lunch and dinner can be ordered online and delivered right to your villa door, thanks to a new delivery service with which many of the island’s restaurants have partnered. In most instances, delivery is free with a minimum order of €25. Take a look at all the menu choices and prices, and note that orders can include soft drinks, beer and wine. And, of course, you’ll score the best table in the house. Bon Appétit!

The popular Grand Cul de Sac lunch spot O’Corail has finished its post-Irma rebuild and reopened as Ti’ Corail. Owner Turenne LaPlace tells us that Ti means “small” in Creole and reflects its new smaller size. Chef Yann Vinsot, formerly of Cheval Blanc, does the honors, and they’ve incorporated a food truck concept. Lunch, snacks, and cocktails can be enjoyed at the bar or at a handful of beachfront tables. The restaurant’s synergy with the just-next-door Quanalao Dive continues. Think snorkeling, kayaking or a paddleboat trip around the lagoon, pre- or post-lunch. Reservations are strongly recommended.

“Our Guests Say...”

From one of our guests who enjoyed a recent villa vacation at Villa Les Embruns:

Dear Anne, I wanted to personally let you know how much I appreciated your assistance throughout the process. You were very helpful! We had an absolutely wonderful holiday! We did a lot of nothing and were really able to disconnect. We both needed it badly. We loved our hikes to Colombier and visited with the huge turtles on the way. Thank you again for being so lovely! Have a great day./
