It’s love at first sight for most visitors to the stunning island of Saint Barthélemy. One of the most glamourous of the Caribbean, it attracts the wealthy and the beautiful with its pristine beaches, world-class restaurants and chic duty-free boutiques. The hottest new places to stay on this stylish island are these two villas by our experts at St Barth Properties.
Villa La Lune
Located in Pointe Milou, this gorgeous two-bedroom villa, boasts a three-sided vista of the sea. It offers guests ultimate privacy and delights them with contemporary-styled sophistication and a wealth of special features. The living room is stylishly furnished for comfort, conversation, and feet-up TV viewing while an air-conditioned office area makes the space truly multi-functional.
The classy simple décor is complemented by a soothing palette custom designed by Donald Kaufman and Taffy Dahl, the U.S.’s foremost color consulting firm. Accessories by one of St. Barth’s favorite designers, Christian Liaigre, adds stylish finesse. Elevated above the main level, a sleek stainless kitchen and adjacent dining area open to a shaded porch and a spacious sunroom furnished for relaxing (with a double-sized day bed) and dining. The views from this room are particularly dramatic.
The outdoor living space includes a vast deck with a long solar-heated pool, an open cabana and a lower-level gazebo. Two equally-sized air-conditioned master suites have king beds, smartly appointed en suite baths and glass sliders to decks overlooking the ocean. The doors and windows are screened providing the option to enjoy tropical breezes and the sound of the surf.
Situated in Flamands, the elegant three-bedroom Villa Shadowfax treats guests to fabulous views of the sea, neighboring islands and lush green hills. Well laid-out with soothing minimalist décor, it’s vacation-perfect. A comfortable living room opens to a spacious deck furnished for outdoor living and accommodating to shade seekers. A long, heated infinity pool is easily accessed by steps and sparkles in the sun.
The villa’s sleek summer-white kitchen opens to a covered dining area via a wide pass-through. A full guest bathroom is conveniently located nearby. There are two (French king) bedrooms and another one with twin beds convertible to a king.
All bathrooms have well-appointed en suite baths and glass sliders that open to a deck and frame a view of the sea. Air-conditioned, they are also screened providing the option of enjoying tropical breezes. A benefit to its location is the proximity to the beloved neighborhood bakery La Petite Colombe for breakfast pastries, baguettes or to pick-up a sandwich en route to nearby gorgeous Flamands Beach.
