St. Barths inquiry and our answer

On another note, we have a few inquiries by tourists with regards to anything and everything about St. Barths.

 asks about the different islands in the Caribbean as she is planning to have a girl’s trip to St. Barths. She hopes to look for the perfect villa spot (complete with a swimming pool) which is close to restaurants and shopping areas. Narrowing her search to these websites VRBO, WIMCO, St. Barths Properties, she says she is new to St. Barths and asks if it is better to search just Gustavia.

We answered this inquiry by saying that St. Barths is relatively small, so just focus on finding the right villa since most villas are close to a beach or restaurant-only a 15-minute drive.

Another inquiry by  about villa rentals where she says that she is planning a 3rd trip to St. Barths together with her husband in 2015. In 2008 she stayed at Lorient and in 2012 at Anse des Cayes

saying she enjoyed her previous stays but is looking to try something new.

Her preferences this time are: villa with views of Gustavia (the harbor), a pool, and an outside hot tub. She found it difficult finding such preferences even though she is also looking up at Wimco.

We answered such inquiry saying that: WIMCO and Sibarth are the first agencies to turn to. But by using the most powerful search engine, just type in the right specific keywords in the searchbox, maybe try using French words like pool = piscine, hot tube = jacuzzi, and so we encouraged her to try “Gustavia villa piscine jacuzzi” in Google.
