Interaction with guests
Our local manager lives in an adjacent property. She is a long-time resident and her husband is a St Bart's native. Both are very hospitable and a wealth of information about what, where and how to do things. We also offer complimentary airport / ferry meet & greet, escort to villa and general orientation. Maid service is offered every day (except Sundays and public holidays). We can arrange a very affordable car rental package in low season. As well as breakfast service, private chef dinners and concierge services (your account by direct arrangement). These include kitchen provisioning, hard to get reservations, excursions, babysitting, massage appointments, etc.

About the neighborhood
Nearby beaches are Flamands (excellent sunbathing), Anse des Cayes (good for surfing), Colombier (also called Rockefeller Beach for historical reasons; requires a nature hike and worth every step) and St. Jean (water sports, sunbathing, airplane spotting, legendary Eden Rock; Nikki Beach Club.
Getting around
St Barts is a small pebble of an island, only 8 square miles (24 sq km). A rental car, motorcycle or scooter is needed. 4x4s available, but not necessary. We have a relationship with a locally owned car hire agency at airport (delivery at ferry terminal also possible).
