“Paradise”
Reviewed April 18, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

people found this review helpful

Villa Kawai is absolutely beautiful. We've been going to St. Bart's for years, and this place is our favorite. The only thing I worry about in writing this review is that more people will find it and stay there and it won't be available when I want it. :) The views are literally not of this world. Spectacular. They have American TV, which was kind of nice, I can't lie. The kitchen was well appointed which is key because we cook a lot. The bedroom was comfortable and the bathroom was large and clean. The pool is gorgeous. There are even tons of tortoises and lizards running around the huge yard, and watching them kept us occupied for hours. We rented via Happy Villa, and the service was excellent. The booking was smooth, the cleaning was great... overall we just couldn't have been more pleased. See you next year Villa Kawai!

“Perfect Two Couple House”
Reviewed March 20, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Two identical bedrooms separated by main house and pool make this the ideal solution for two couples. Large, very private and beautifully maintained gated grounds provide total privacy for this hillside retreat. The views are spectacular, the breezes soothing and the stargazing amazing. The house was immaculately clean, well appointed and supplied but not cluttered as some can be. The indoor and outdoor spaces merge together as a single comfortable environment. In 10 days we did not need the AC once despite high temps down below. In general St. Barth felt like the safest Caribbean island we have ever visited and although there are many diverse areas and beaches to explore, none are more than 20-minutes away. If you're going to cook in you must try Meat My Fish halfway down the hill or for a special treat have St Barth Villa Chef come to the villa to prepare and serve your dinner. We could go on and on about the villa and the island but can sum it up by saying we have travelled extensively throughout the Caribbean for decades and this is as good as it gets. Enjoy.

“Stunning”
Reviewed August 8, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at Villa Kawai for a fortnight in July. It is very private with views to die for and very peaceful (although they have started to clear an adjoining plot for a new house, so you might want to check re construction work; that said there is much house building taking place all over the island). You will need to hire a car unless you're prepared to rely on taxis, which is impractical. The pool is beautiful, with a great decked area, which enjoys cool breeze. The maid will iron and launder if you need it. As the Euros were on, we were able to get ESPN via the Dish satellite and TV France through the Orange dish, although it was a little fiddly to begin with. We did get a shock one morning to find one of the land turtles has snuck in through the patio door and first I realised was when I felt it nibbling the back of my ankle!

All in all, we very much doubt that there is a better value villa on St Barths.

“Villa Kawai - Will Always Remember the Views and Peaceful Mornings”
Reviewed April 23, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We will always remember the beautiful views, the gentle breeze and the peaceful mornings listening to the sounds of the waves and roosters in the background. The villa was very private, comfortable and it looked like we were the first to ever stay there it was so clean, new and well kept. We enjoyed the benefits of using the rental company (Happy Villa) by having the fridge stocked when we arrived for breakfasts and lunches and also the private chef for a wonderful 5 course meal. The location of the villa is perfect because you are up the hill from other villas, yet it is easy to get to the wonderful beaches, restaurants and shopping. We are looking forward to going back next year.

“Villa Kawai is excellent!”
Reviewed March 18, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We began in 2002 staying yearly in a villa located in Vitet area through last year when the owner decided to take it off the market.. We were "sad" until we found Villa Kawai through Happy Villa rentals which we greatly enjoyed this year! The view is similar and the villa is new with many amenities. Furthermore, the Happy Villa staff and service is excellent!
