The thing to learn about St. Barts Villa Rentals,’ a vintage Carib-bean hand explained even as sat in a beachfront restaurant, ‘is it attracts rich people … very abundant people … you know, Simon Cowell and David Letterman, media men with a couple of hundred million … and then really, really rich people. St Barts is where they go on Christmas.’
And it’s true.
At Maya’s restaurant on New Year’s Eve, waterfront tables can be worthy of billions. For a little island that not way back when was one of the poorest in the Caribbean, that’s quite a change.
So how have a tiny, dry out and neglected outcrop end up being the favored winter home to the personalities?
St Jean is the liveliest of the island’s beaches:
First, it’s small and hard to access, this means it was never overrun by mass tourism. Early visitors included the Rockefellers, who came up for the isolation and beauty. Which can be another feature.St. Barts Villa Rentals has excellent beaches and surprisingly very scenery. Further, it is French. The body beautiful stroll along St Jean beach in only nuance of any swimwear, or trip by on the mobility scooter, windswept with all that stylish nonchalance.
St Barts is also free of security worries – the celebs feel so safe that they scarcely have body- guards. You really do bump into Sting in the supermarket and Paul McCart-ney on the beach. Or, in my case, you end up sleeping in Kate Moss’s villa. Although, I’ll admit, it was a couple of weeks after she was on the island (just before Christmas).
People stroll up and down – was that Sir Norman Foster?
Watching the airplane removing (the island is so small that the airport abuts it) and then pause for meal at Eden Rock’s Fine sand Bar. This and next–door Nikki Beach are two places where people decorate for meal. But there are low–key beach locations too. Three of the greatest – Saline and Gouverneur on the south shoreline and Colombier, which is normally visited by motorboat – have no development in any way.
Caribbean is a villa on the beach:
The natural thing to want in the Caribbean is a villa on the beach, but there are relatively few right on the sand. The very best are in Flamands, a beach in the north, where the six- bedroom St. Barts Villa Rentals Sand Club has taken great pride in of place. But in such a steep island, there is enough of play in the location. French musician Johnny Halliday’s house, Villa Jade, is an extraordinary confection
And for individuals who want to party:
Search no further than Villa Wickie, which has six sleeping rooms and a sunshine- set view simply a brief walk from the bars and night clubs in Gustavia itself.
Strangely, service in most St. Barts Villa Rentals isn’t that comprehensive – the island simply doesn’t have the space to own butlers and housekeepers you would expect in, say, Barbados – but of course masseuses, babysitters and chefs will come to your villa. And concierge companies is there to help you with anything from a res- taurant booking to a wedding.
You will discover more than 400 villas for hire on St. Barts, Villa Rentals companies include St Barth Properties and Sibarth, both long-established companies.
