“Amazing Views - Great Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

As someone who gone to St. Barth's for 15 years, my husband and I have stayed in several different villas. This Pointe Milou villa has breathtaking views. It has a well stocked kitchen with complete cookware, utensils, appliances, service for large parties, and a nice selection of olive oils and spices. The master bath is spacious with double sinks and a good sized vanity area. The master bedroom has ample closet space with separate his and her closets and shelves. The pool/garden caretaker and the housekeeper were in and out quickly and were very unobtrusive. They provided beach chairs and a beach umbrella complementary with the stay. The large outdoor table has a great breeze for dining. This is a great villa for a large family or someone who wants to entertain a group.

On the downside, the lighting in the villa is poor. There isn't a place with bright enough lighting to read a book - not in the living room nor the master bedroom. The landscape lighting is more blinding than helpful in navigating the stairs (which do not have rails). The hot tub and gym equipment are tired -- in fact the treadmill was in pieces (I assume in the middle of repair) during our stay. The pool chaises are comfortable but do not allow you to sit up. On one rental company's web site, they are shown upright while another rental company site has more current pictures with the current chaise lounge configuration. We were there in late April and the kitchen and living room were both very hot. The bedrooms by the pool don't have a lot of privacy which is more appropriate for a large family than for several couples vacationing together.

The best part of our stay were the two exceptionally talented professionals we found from our internet research. When the rental company was less than helpful in coordinating transportation, we opted to find our own chef and massage therapist rather than go through them. We wanted to eat healthy while enjoying the local cuisine, and we found a highly trained chef who was willing to work with any and all requests. Christine and her partner Jean-Jacques, from Cordon Bleu, were so pleasant and eager to please. We only hired them to cook a few dinners for us, but they went above and beyond in cooking something to leave behind for us to have for breakfast and lunch the next day. We also discovered Daniel Schlagel, from First Class Massage, who is one of the best massage therapists around. We later discovered that the villa rental companies take a cut from chefs, massage therapists and other professionals they recommend. So, the referral you get from the rental company may be the one they make the most money off not necessarily the most talented person in that field.
