Le Bulletin September 2019

Villa Summertime

We hope your summer was delightful. We loved hearing from those who chose St. Barth for their summer vacation, especially families. Clients Scott and Courtney wrote that they loved their stay at Villa Arc en Ciel with their son. They all tried – and loved – the Seabobs (these electric water “scooters” are a huge hit with everyone, especially the kids). The bonus of a father-son fishing trip was catching an impressively sized mahi-mahi. We booked a private chef for them, and they enjoyed the dinner, served poolside, so much they had him back – twice! They enjoyed their in-villa massages, too.

Shell Beach’s Shellona is getting high marks for leisurely lunches from many of our clients. We agree. It’s one of our favorites spots to sip an afternoon glass of rosé. And Papa Pizza’s got a few recommendations – pickup or delivery. Nice for a post-beach relaxing evening in. Try it – and take it up a notch with a bottle of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. You’re in St. Barth!

We’re planning an early November return to the island, and I’m excited. We’ll be there in time for Le Select’s 70th anniversary as well as this year’s annual St. Barth Gourmet Festival. Read more about the Festival in my blog, and don’t miss our special Festival-related offer below.

I hope to see you on the island. Our Villa and Hotel Specialists are eager to hear from you. Contact them via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

P.S. Festive Season is just a few calendar pages away, but we still have some lovely villas from which to choose. Take a look.

Two equally sized bedrooms are located on the main level, on opposite sides of the living area. Each opens to the deck. All have at least partial ocean views, TVs with U.S. satellite service and a Bluetooth station. A location bonus is proximity to the 5 star Christopher Hotel, for dining and spa services.

Client Accolade

Anne, La Maison Rouge was perfect. I asked you before I booked, “Would you stay there with friends and love it?” And you said, “Yes.” And you were right. And for that you now have my trust and my referrals.
