Where can I rent or buy beach chairs?

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

Clients often ask us if there are any beach chairs at the villa where they will be staying. Some villas do have beach chairs for the clients’ use. However, the chairs do not last long and rust-out often due to the salt air.

Have no fear! A solution is near!

You can rent them! You can also buy them!

Sand chairs are available for rent (or for sale) at Casarina, a little boutique in St. Jean that is located across the street from the Pelican Shops and Nikki Beach. The price for the rental is 5 euros per day (3 day minimum). If you are staying longer than 10 days, then you might as well buy them as they are for sale for 50 euros. Casarina is open every day from 9:30am to 7:00 pm.

We have also been able to find them at the CCPF True Value Store in Public (pronounced the French way, “pooblique”). We also were able to purchase our cooler there. Both shops have umbrellas but you should keep an eye on them when those wonderful breezes become gusty.

The sand chairs are ideal for people who like to explore all of the beautiful beaches that we have on St. Barth. Go to the boulangerie, get your baguette, make or buy sandwiches, pack your cooler, your beach towels and your chairs and off you go. Want to try another beach in the afternoon? No problem, keep the chairs etc. in your car; it’s that easy.

If you prefer to stay put and decide not to pack a cooler for the day, you can pamper yourself by renting a lounge chair where you can have access to drinks and food with a little music thrown in for good measure. St. Jean Beach has two options:

Carib Waterplay not only rents windsurfing boards and gives windsurfing lessons, they have beach chaises (with pads) and umbrellas that you can rent for the day. The price is 10 euros a day for a chaise and 10 euros a day for an umbrella. Just sign up at their booth.

Monday, October 4th, 2010

Still haven’t booked your villa for the first weekend in November? Would you like to be located near St Jean and Gustavia?

These two villas are only about a 5 minute drive to either spot:

Villa Piment in Anse Des Cayes

Lucky You!! The couple who stayed in Villa Piment last year is very disappointed that they are not able attend our party due to a previous obligation. They tried and tried to wriggle out of it -but to no avail. This is your chance…

Dream About: Waking up in a king-size 4-poster bed with a vista of the sea framed by French doors.

It’s in the Details: Views abound here, from the breakfast bar in the kitchen and the deck that surrounds the pool and Jacuzzi. The TV room is so comfy.

Villa Soie in Anse de Cayes

Dream About: Having the option each morning of a swim in your pool, or walking down a path to a little coral beach.

It’s in the Details: Water views and the sound of the surf add to the ambience of a comfortable spacious interior. There is a well-equipped kitchen and a delightfully breezy dining terrace.
