We had Chefs XO at the Villa and they were wonderful – everyone really enjoyed the meal. The massages from Venus Institute were also great. We had dinners at Eddy’s, Bagatelle, Bonito and Eden Rock and thoroughly enjoyed them all. Lunch was Pearl Beach, GypSea and Kiki e Mo – all great as well.”

– Caroline T., Villa Terre Indigo


Villa Mes Amis, 4-Bedrooms, Lurin

“We had a great time in St. Barths (seems redundant). Our favorite restaurants were Bonito, Santa Fe and Sella (atmosphere over food at Sella, but a really fun night) for dinner and Gypsea, Shellona and Toiny for lunch. Drinks were fun at La Plage (GM and Bartenders are amazing there). Favorite beaches – in no particular order were Gouvernor; Saline and Flamands. Toiny is beautiful but tough to swim at the Beach Club there because of all the rocks. Mes Amis is a perfect house. The view, location, staff and set up make it an ideal place for a vacation. Our concierge, Enzo, was amazing. Helped us with restaurants, cars, travel and beaches. We were lucky to have his help. Not sure our trip would have been as special without his help. Can’t wait to return. Thank you for a wonderful vacation.”

– Matthew P., Villa Mes Amis

This was our 15th visit To St Barths in last 30 years. Props to Marche U and U Express for fresh produce and seafood. Restaurants: Shellona, Tamarin, Sand Bar and Riviera (Hotel Christopher) all good choices and recommended. Black Ginger for takeout good alternative to eating out. Our private chef Paul Loubolais (sp.) did masterful job with our last day of stay dinner and is highly recommended. Au revoir.”
