The Villa Henson in Colombier, is approached by a long private drive and is very secluded. St Barts is a very safe island. The land below the villa and to the right (100 acres + !! ) is occupied by a few sheep - that's all! The villas to the left are well hidden. Parking is right by the villa. (The villa can also be used with two bedrooms. see Flip Key #5373073) In either case the whole villa is yours. It is a perfect villa for a honeymoon or a romantic holiday for two. One of our St Barts vacation clients said, 'This is our 2nd visit to Villa Henson. Only the heart, soul and spirit can know and express the beauty, serenity, peace, love and joy felt and lived here!

We've visited the island many times stayed at (list of villas!). While all are beautiful in their own right none are as beautiful, peaceful and private as this villa.' The Villa Henson sits about 70 meters (200 ft) above the Caribbean sea and in the mornings you can sometimes see turtles swimming below. There are no other villas below Villa Henson. We have probably one of the best views of any villa on the island. The view is due west so the sun sets virtually opposite between Saba and St Martin, depending on the time of year. On the horizon you can see (north to south) St. Martin, Saba, St. Eustace, St. Kitts and Nevis and the entrance to the port of Gustavia. I have even seen Montserrat further south! Big yachts and jet skiers play quietly in the sea in front of you. At night the other Islands' lights twinkle. You can even claim a front row seat on our terrace to watch the Yacht Regattas like the Bucket Regatta in March and the firework displays. The heated swimming pool is perfectly placed on the terrace in front of the living room. It is 6 meters by 4 and 1.5 meters deep. The far side is edgeless giving the impression that the sky and the pool are one. On the near side is an underwater bench, just the right height for sitting in the cool water and having a cooling drink at the same time. In addition there is a super 5 person Spa. It's heated, has 85 jets, a unique bubbling system that feels like you are sitting in a champagne bath and we love it! An idyllic place to watch the sunsets that take place in front of the villa all year round. The terrace has some very comfortable loungers and a teak dining table and chairs. A large Weber BBQ is on hand if you want to stay and dine under the stars as many clients do, listening to music with the terrace speakers. There are hammocks available. The large and comfortable air conditioned living area has several settees and a fully equipped media centre with Dish Network (US sat/tv) with HBO and a media hard disk with lots of films that I try to add to every year. There are also terrace speakers and Apple TV. Large sliding doors open onto the terrace. Included in the living area is our kitchen, which is not a small holiday home one but fully fitted with all the necessary equipment should you want to do a bit of cooking. We have some great addresses for Lobsters. There are two air conditioned bedrooms both have views of the Caribbean Sea and some other Islands. Each has a TV with Dish Network (US sat/tv) with HBO. Each has a large shower room ensuite. Linen and towels are supplied. Our housekeeper comes daily (except holidays and Sundays). We will give you super directions to the villa (and a short video) after you book. A large number of our clients come back year after year, which says a lot about the Villa Henson and if you are asking why we called it Villa Henson, well we had two lovely horses of that breed. There is a painting of them over the bar. Book early so you are not disappointed.More

About the neighborhood
Villas that face west as the Villa Henson, have the advantage of being on the Leeward side of the island and is much less windy than on the Windward side. Additionally it faces the sunsets, which can be spectacular. Events like the Bucket Regatta at the end of March each year (front row viewing from the Villa Henson) and Mardi Gras, attract thousands of people. Villas that face West like the Villa Henson have stunning views and equally stunning sunsets. The villa is very secluded and many guests spend lazy days by the pool. Nothing on St Barts is far away.
Getting around
DIRECTIONS Out of the airport turn right drive to the roundabout. The first exit 'Colombier'. Continue keep left at the junction at 1.5 k then continue past the boulangerie 'Le Petit Colombe' (left) and down the hill. After 500 meters and short drop down, you will see in front (right) a yellow fronted bar. JUST BEFORE the bar turn left past the house and green wall. Drive up through the small village of Colombier. The road turns right then bends left and climbs up. Near the top, on the left, is ' Les Petits Pois', you will see a road straight ahead. This is the entrance to the family domaine. Ignore the 'no Entry' sign! At the top you pass a villa about & 100 meters of dirt track to the villa Henson.
