GUIDE TO LUXURY VILLA RENTALS IN ST. BARTS

St. Barts History

St. Bart’s (St. Barthelemy), also sometimes called St. Barths, or even St. Bart, was named by Christopher Columbus after his brother. St. Barts is a volcanic island in the Caribbean that owes much of its history and culture to France. The first evidence of human presence on the island, however, dates back to 1000 BC and to the Chiboney people, though the first official settlements were made by the Arawak Indians in 100 AD, until the Caribs took over the island nearly 700 years later. Today, though, it is the presence of France that has had the most impact, as the official language of the island is French, and French cuisine competes with Creole and West Indian dishes for the palates of locals. Along with this heritage, the island is most famous for its many beautiful beaches, and as such, most luxury villa rentals St. Barts has to offer revolve around the sand, surf, and sea.

St. Jean: Charm and Convenience

St. Jean is a village located in the northern part of the island and contains one of the most well-known and loved beaches on the island. Not surprisingly, it is St. Barts’ centre of water sport activity. In the village, you will also find a convenient selection of chic shops, enticing restaurants, and lively bars. Both visitors and islanders alike love to take in the scene by day and by night. The village is small and quaint, limiting parking space, but the beauty of it is that everything one needs is located in very close proximity. Even St. Barts airport is just a few minutes way. St. Jean’s Bay is the largest and most photographed bay on St. Barts, and has become the place for a resort-style social scene and authentic French conviviality. View our luxury villas in St. Jean for your pick of extraordinarily well-located properties. For villa guests who want to tour the capital, Gustavia, it is only 10 minutes away by car and even the most remote of beaches are no more than a half hour drive away. For a stay closer to the capital, have a look at our luxury rentals in Gustavia.

Getting To and From Luxury Villa Rentals in St. Barts

St. Bart's is not a very large island, meaning a car is not necessarily required to reach most St. Bart's villas. If you're renting from a property management company, they will be happy to arrange an airport pick-up service for you. Once you arrive at your destination, most of your travelling will be done by water, since St. Bart's is one of the premier sailing, yachting and fishing destinations in the world. Touring the island can also be done by bus, bicycle, or on foot. Renting a car for a couple of days to explore the island’s most beautiful sights and off-the-beaten-track spots at your own pace is also a great option.

Weather

One of the many reasons St. Barts is such a popular destination is that the sun is almost always shining. Peak season runs from roughly November through March, but April through June are also wonderful times to visit. The weather can be a little less predictable during hurricane season, which runs from July through November, If you're looking for a good deal on luxury villa rentals in St Barts, May or June are great times because the weather is still gorgeous but peak season has ended.

Although St. Barts had to face the challenge of significant hurricane damages in September 2017, the island has been quick to repair and refurbish. Roofs are mended, most restaurants and boutiques have reopened, and most beaches (including St. Jean Beach and Shellona on Shell Beach) have been cleaned and fixed up. The island is in good condition and ready to accept guests. Our luxury villa rentals in Shell Beach are well worth visiting. St. Barts remains lush, beautiful, and welcoming to all.

St. Barts Cuisine

Local grocery stores offer an incredible variety of food items, and it is almost as much fun to go food shopping as it is to take advantage of one the high quality local catering services on the island. St. Barts’ French-influenced passion for fine dining means every meal is thoughtfully prepared. Many of the chefs in St. Barths are experts in classic French cuisine, but there are also several restaurants on the island that offer traditional Creole dishes such as stuffed crab, fish, blood sausage, “christophine” (a local squash prepared with codfish), or the very popular “accras,” (deep-fried codfish fritters). Fresh-caught Caribbean lobster is also available, either grilled or in a casserole.

Tipping

Tipping culture in St Barths is equivalent to that in France. While service fees are usually included in the bill at most restaurants, it is traditional to give a “pour boire” of 5%-10% for good service, though many Americans typically give the usual 15%-20%. For villa housekeepers, it is customary to give 10 euros per day per bedroom occupied. All tips should be paid in local currency, in cash.
