The Ultimate St. Barth Christmas Gift to Put Under the Tree

SURPRISE HER/HIM WITH A LAST MINUTE TRIP TO PARADISE

You’ve surfed the web, you’ve pounded the pavement but you just can’t seem to find the perfect gift to give to your loved one, friend(s) or family. This time of year can be quite stressful because you have so many things to do in such a short period of time. You are tired, you have worked hard at your job all year long, it’s cold outside for most of you and you are already tired of shoveling snow, scraping off your windshield and slipping on black ice. YOU DESERVE A VACATION IN ST. BARTH! So why not reserve a villa for a January getaway and surprise your significant other(s) by gift wrapping it and putting it under the tree?

Here I am in beautiful St. Barth looking out at the view as I type and thinking about all of you and how great it would be if you could join me down here. So I did a little research and came up with some nice options.

Would you like to stay directly on St. Jean Beach and have a swimming pool too? Villa Crystal Dream has a 7 night opening January 09-16, 2014! It has 3 bedrooms so you can surprise 5 people or just travel as a twosome and pay less money. (Choose your bedroom and the other two would just be locked off. You still get to use the whole rest of the house.)

If Blue Diamond’s price is a stretch, we have Villa Diaco which sits on the highest peak of St. Barth. The view is incredible. You can reserve it between January 06 and 18, 2014.

The luxurious Villa Noé is a perfect villa for one or two couples. Listen to the sound of the surf or better yet go surfing! You can walk to the path that leads you down to that special spot where the serious surfers go. You may end up surfing with Jimmy Buffett! Villa Noé is available between Jan 03 and 17, 2014.

One or two couples could also enjoy the less expensive Villa Bet Yam with two equal king bedrooms and is even closer to the surfing area. It’s all yours between January 13 and 29, 2014.

Do you prefer to be closer to Gustavia and Gouverneur Beach? Book the luxurious Villa Mer Soleil between January 05 and 12, 2014 and make your dream come true. The sunsets from here are spectacular.

Bonjour from sunny St. Barth!

I arrived last week and have been doing last minute villa inspections before they fill up for the holidays. There are so many beautiful properties. I am sure you will love staying in them. Villa Cosmos, a villa in Mont Jean that we sold three years ago, has just completed its renovation – it was worth the wait!

Dream about: Working on your tan then jumping into the large heated swimming pool to cool off.
It’s in the details: Four en suite bedrooms are located in separate areas; Outdoor living spaces are everywhere.
SBP Loves: The minimalistic contemporary décor and the wonderful views across Marigot Bay

Have a look!

The decorations line the streets of Gustavia, the yachts were all lined up on the dock but a houle came down from the US creating large swells form the northwest so the yachts are temporarily moored just outside the harbor. There is a Christmas Village on the quai where people can purchase some last minute gifts.

The boutiques remain open and there is plenty of activity—window shoppers and buyers alike. This evening Steve and I will attend the 6:30 pm Christmas Eve service at the Anglican Church. It is my annual chance to sing Christmas carols and belt out those songs (I am a soprano and love to sing). Continuing the tradition we will head to the Wall House for dinner. People are raving about their new menu and the new chef who created it.

Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
