Le Bulletin May 2017

Villa Naturelle 3

It seems we no sooner finish High Season than we begin planning for the next year. Our U.S. team has been busy making their biannual inspection trips, notebooks and iPads in hand and their clients on their mind. I’m planning a trip to gather information for our next Live Your Dream magazine, and have booked stays at the island’s two new 5 star hotels that we are pleased to represent, Le Barthélemy Hotel & Spa and Villa Marie Saint-Barth. I’ll also be looking at some exciting new villas to add to our portfolio, and meeting with some new chefs. Having a private chef prepare and serve an in-villa dinner is an experience that more and more of our clients have come to love.

Meanwhile, this year’s Value Season, which began April 15 (and runs to December 14), is busier than ever. Villa and hotel prices average 30% less, and a stronger dollar makes a spring or summer getaway even more affordable. Summer on St. Barth is a gorgeous – and a happy place for a family vacation.

I hope to see you on the island.

SBP News

Our U.S team gathered for a fun lunch (tinged with a bit of sadness) in honor of Kathy Schlitzer’s retirement. We’ll miss her! However, we are delighted to have Allegra Pawlowski filling the void she leaves. With her villa rental experience and passion for St. Barth she has “hit the island running.” She is currently onsite doing inspections.

Our retirement luncheon for Kathy Schlitzer was bittersweet. We sure had a great time, though

Villa and Hotel Specialist Julie Nally is just back from St. Barth. Please see Peg’s Blog for her trip report.

Restaurant News

St. Barth is known for its restaurants, including fine dining, classic French cuisine and chefs who work magic with the local fresh fish. But let’s be honest, there are nights we all crave pizza – and if we are vacationing with kids, it’s almost a must. Hideaway’s thin-crust pies are a perennial favorite, and Les Bananiers in Colombier has its own legion of fans. Plus there’s a brand-new option: Papa’s Pizza in St. Jean. In addition to their menu of yummy pizzas, they offer sandwiches, salads and a nice variety of main dishes for takeaway – and they deliver!

Client Accolade

I just wanted to write and let you know that we had an AMAZING time. The hotel (Le Barthélemy) is fantastic – they've done a great job, and I wouldn't look to stay anywhere else going forward. Your guides and guidance were invaluable, and we referred to them constantly.
