Le Bulletin October 2021

An exciting St. Barth Season is about to begin!

Bonjour, 

I hope this email finds you well as the summer of 2021 comes to an end, and we greet the busy fall days. The summer was indeed a busy one for us, and we have some exciting news to share. St. Barth Properties has recently partnered with Nocturne Luxury Villas, an innovative and visionary new company founded by seasoned veterans in the hospitality industry.  Operating under its Exceptional Stays brand (www.exceptionalstays.com), Nocturne is perfecting a platform to acquire and integrate luxury vacation rental management companies in exclusive leisure destinations.  Naturally, St. Barth Properties is an important piece of the plan.  We are thrilled with the new partnerships and the opportunity to better serve our valued clients.

In a seamless transition, St. Barth Properties will operate as St. Barth Properties, by Exceptional Stays. Our offices in Franklin, MA and harborside in Gustavia are unchanged and staffed with our same amazing team of villa and hotel specialists that you’ve come to know. And our concierge team is still at the ready to ensure your dream vacation!

At this time, I will be stepping back and have passed the baton to my son Tom Smyth who has now assumed the role of president of St. Barth Properties, by Exceptional Stays. In addition, he serves as Nocturne Luxury Villas’ Chief Operating Officer (COO).

Tom and I remain co-owners of St. Barth Sotheby's International Realty and happy to assist all those whose dream it is to own their own piece of paradise.

I’m so proud of founding St. Barth Properties and, with your patronage, I’ve watched it grow over the past three decades.  Merci. Transitions like this can be bittersweet, but I’ll now have more time to enjoy the beautiful island of St. Barth. And I’ll watch with the same pride as Tom and the Nocturne/ Exceptional Stays team make St. Barth Properties better than ever in the years to come.

Villa Bel Air

Newly Listed - Bel Air

How does spending the morning poolside at your villa and the afternoon at nearby super-sexy and fun St. Jean Beach sound? Consider the luxurious Villa Bel Air. Surrounded by a tropical garden, and contemporary in design and décor, it has a lovely traditional West Indies feel. A wall of windows frames the view of verdant hills and glimpses of the brilliantly blue sea. Three en suite bedrooms open to an expansive pool deck and a wealth of outdoor living space.


Villa Dadaye

Newly Listed - Dadaye

Poised above Lorient Bay, this beautiful contemporary villa offers gorgeous views of its beach, beloved by both surfers and sunbathers. Three ensuite bedrooms are situated to ensure privacy making it ideal for couples looking to share, or a family vacation. Glass sliders frame the vista and open to a covered terrace furnished for poolside relaxation. Guests love Dadaye’s proximity to the L’Oasis Market and the popular Choisy Bakery. Dream about enjoying a French pastry with your morning java – poolside. Then maybe working out in the lower-level fitness room – or not.


Villa Felicita

Newly Listed - Felicita

Thinking about a gathering of family and friends for a truly special vacation? Think about Villa Felicita, a magnificent 7 bedroom contemporary villa. Multi-level, Felicita’s two buildings connect via an expansive view-facing terrace with a gigantic, heated pool.

A professional kitchen (ask us about arranging for a private chef) is in one building together with a spacious air-conditioned living room. Felicita’s special features include a media room and a fitness room.


Villa The One

Better than ever - The One

Nicely situated not far from Flamands, St. Jean and Gustavia, the luxurious three bedroom Villa One is chic and contemporary and, newly redecorated, it’s a wow! Its hillside location treats guests to a magical view of the sea and the small neighboring islands Bonhomme and Frégate. A bar with seating divides the sleek stainless kitchen from a spacious living room; this area includes a guest bath. The interior opens to a deck, now expanded by 50 ft. It offers a wealth of outdoor living space. Its focal point is an elegant, elongated infinity pool with chaises positioned for sunning and a modern take on a gazebo at its end for shade-seekers. A covered poolside dining area makes al fresco meals delightful. Two equally sized (king) bedrooms are on either side of the living room, with access to the deck via sliders. Both have stylish en suite baths and showers with a view. The third en suite bedroom (king) is located off the sundeck.


Villa Wings

Newly Enhanced - Wings

The uber-luxurious Villa Wings will be ready to welcome guests just in time for the Festive Season. Overlooking the Baie de St. Jean, this luxurious 4 bedroom villa has been completely, and beautifully redecorated. What else is new?

Conde Nast Traveler has just named St. Barth as one of the Best Places to Travel in November. We agree! What’s not to love about our gorgeous beaches, sunny days, and European ambiance…the seal-the-deal for the island’s selection is the now annual Saint Barth Gourmet Festival. Held each November, it has become a major event on the international culinary landscape and one of the best gourmet festivals in the world. Read more about it below.

Food, Glorious Food

The Gourmet Festival is back! This year marks the 8th edition, and we are pleased to again be one of the sponsors. Eleven internationally renowned chefs (French, naturellement) will travel to St. Barth and be hosted by some of the island’s finest hotels and restaurants. Each will prepare a creative multi-course dinner showcasing their own take on French gastronomy. Have you booked a villa with us encompassing the November 10-14 dates? If so, we’d be delighted to reserve a table for you at one or more of the venues. And if not, do consider visiting, as Conde Nast Traveler says “St. Barth is one of the best places to travel to in November.” Bon Appetit!

“Our Guests Say...”

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

Our trip was excellent, and we were thoroughly impressed with your company.  We used the concierge for reservations both before we arrived and once, we were there.  They were excellent … I will say we seemed to get the best tables when you got us the reservations.  We were on the terrace at Bonito, had a great corner booth in the main room at L’Isola, and we’re beach front at the Pearl for lunch. 

Chad, Memphis, TN

What say you? We’d love to hear about your favorite beach, restaurant or island experience. And if you have photos you’d like to share – even better!
