Help me find right villa

My husband and I are looking for a villa in St Barts that has a great view but is very private. We want to feel like we are alone. Anyone ever stayed at Villa Hilly House or Villa Manon? Or any new suggestions would be great!

While you can get some great recommendations from forums such as these, I am a big advocate for using the villa rental agencies to help you. They are paid professionals and in my experience very frank about villa amenities. Give them your requirements (number of bedrooms, pool, view or whatever...) dates and price range and let them generate a list This ensures you are only considering villas that you can afford and are available for your trip. Agency websites have pictures that can help you to decide as well. Finally, when you have narrowed down the search, you can ask questions about specific villas on this or other SBH forums.

We are planning our 7th trip to the island (not counting a day trip where we discovered it) and I would only feel qualified to advise people on about 15 specific villas. This is because I have either personally stayed there or friends did. I can also comment on some I have toured with the agency or visited for a social event. That is only a TINY sample of the available villas. Why limit your choices?

We have used the following agencies and would recommend them:

Marla (locally owned)

Wimco (Sibarth in the on island agent)

St Barth Properties

French Caribbean Int'l (Ici et La was the on island agent but I believe they use others too)

Good luck in your search. I LOVE villa shopping!
