Hotel Le Sereno

Bonjour from beautiful St. Barth where the island is settling down after a très busy and exciting Festive Season. As St. Barth Properties begins its 30th year, we were all thrilled to see the holiday bustle including all those gorgeous yachts, once again, docked on the quai and moored in the harbor. We hope your 2019 is off to a great start, and a St. Barth getaway is in your upcoming travel plans. How about swapping snow for sand and bitter winds for gentle breezes? The only thing frozen here are the mojitos!

If your schedule doesn’t allow for a winter vacation, then think about a spring break. By the way kids love St. Barth and our concierge team is at-the-ready to make everything special including a babysitter for an adults-only evening at one of our world-class restaurants. And maybe a little tabletop dancing? See our current villa specials and browse the 5 star hotels in our Hotel Collection.

I hope to see you on the island!

We are pleased to welcome Villa Casita to our portfolio.

Villa Casita

Villa Casita – This charming one bedroom villa is just perfect for a romantic getaway. Perched atop in St. Jean, the lovely views of its bay and verdant hillside can be enjoyed from a choice of locations including the front porch (with its high-top table-for-two), the lower deck’s Jacuzzi, or the king-size bed. The spacious master bedroom suite encompasses a row of closets, a dressing area, a long vanity with double sinks, and a shower. The WC is private. An island, in the cheerful bright red kitchen, divides it from a comfortable living room and dining area. There is a guest bath. Villa Casita’s special features include a second lower-level deck with a gazebo. Guests can sunbathe or relax in the shade. This space has a BBQ grill. There’s U.S. satellite TV in the living room, and a Sonos sound system in the bedroom.

Hotels of St. Barth

SBP President Peg Walsh has been busy with hotel site inspections and is just back from seeing newly reopened Hotel Le Sereno. She pronounced it “better—and more luxurious—than ever” and we’re delighted to be able to offer it to our clients. The 5 star hotel, which boasts an intimate location on the beachfront of Grand Cul De Sac, has a league of fans who will happily find lots of the familiar features they’ve loved. The frosting on the gâteau? Larger waterfront suites, a concept store, and an expanded spa with an oasis-like waterfront pavilion. Executive Chef Alex Simone has returned with a new menu featuring Mediterranean dishes with Italian and Caribbean influences – think Lobster Linguini make with our local langouste. The redesigned restaurant expertly leverages the water views. Dinner there makes for a romantic evening and its perfect for a long, leisurely lunch. Our concierge team will be happy to make reservations.

The St. Barth Properties Sotheby’s International Realty team loved the site inspection and lunch at Cheval Blanc Saint-Barth Isle de France.

We’ve heard from the French Barrière Hotels Group that they plan to open Le Carl Gustaf Saint-Barth on late 2019. Exciting news! Completely redesigned by Parisian designers Gilles & Boissier, they report there will be 17 chic accommodations: Junior Suites, Lofts, Cottages and a six-bedroom Villa, all with their own private pools. Dining will include Fouquet's, a brasserie and the group’s Shell Beach's Shellona Restaurant. Stay tuned for further updates.

Client Accolade

It was an amazing week for us in St. Barth! The Villa Orion was simply outstanding! In perfect condition and exquisitely located, we literally soaked up the sun each day. Mid-afternoons found us enjoying a lovely French Margaux while relaxing in the shaded chaise lounges. A truly renewing time. I would return, again and again.
