At St. Barth Properties, we appreciate your feedback on beaches and restaurants and value every suggestion on how we might improve our service. I must admit that a favorite part of my job is reading the accolades. I loved hearing about a fabulous St. Barth-style 50th birthday party. The honoree wrote that “the whole party called it ‘the trip of a lifetime,’ which is hard to do with 11 adults who have traveled all over the world!”

I booked the group at the stunning seven bedroom Villa Lital; it boasts an extra-long heated swimming pool, complete with a bar, and multiple terraces look out to the sea.

Julia Hurd, the U.S.-based “half” of our amazing concierge team, orchestrated quite a celebration. Christophe of Chefs XO prepared an in-villa BBQ birthday dinner, and the guests brunched and lunched at Nikki Beach and Shellona. They dined at Bonito, Bagatelle and one of my personal favorites, Santa Fe.

Hélène, owner of Easy Time Tours, led them on an island hike and shared her impressive knowledge of the island’s history and flora. And the pièce de résistance? A team from Venus Beauty Spa arrived at Lital for a round of massages. Wow. What are you doing on your next birthday? We’re here to help you plan a “trip of a lifetime” – or just a simple relaxing getaway. Contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

I hope to see you on the island!

Restaurant News

The island is buzzing about its newest restaurant, Zion. It opened on June 17 in the former Hideaway, whose fans – there were legions – won’t recognize their beloved pizza joint. It has been completely renovated; it is now eco-friendly and boasts a sophisticated tropical ambience. Chef Jean-Baptiste Piard has drawn on his extensive culinary background and travels (including his native France, Canada, French Polynesia and St. Barth) to create a unique menu. One of Zion’s special features is a Chef’s Table, where guests will be treated to a special gastronomic adventure. The Chef’s Table will be available on Wednesday through Saturday evenings. Zion is open for lunch Monday through Friday, noon to 2 pm, and every evening for dinner beginning at 7 pm. Our concierge team will be delighted to reserve a spot for you.

All three bedrooms have en suite baths. One bedroom is on the main level and features a terrace; the second bedroom is located a few steps away in a separate pavilion with its own terrace.

Client Accolade

Villa Bonjour was delightful! It was pristine, quiet and exactly located (in St. Jean) where we wanted to spend much of our time. Everything was A++! Your attention to all the details that make a wonderful getaway is still impressive. After all these years (since first contacting Peg Walsh in 1998, when I owned my own travel agency), we never considered using any other service but St. Barth Properties. Looking to book again in the near future, and it most definitely will be Villa Bonjour.
