St. Barths Vacation Rentals & Luxury Villa Rentals St. Barths

St. Barths, or St. Barthelemy, is a luxurious paradise island where the rich and famous have been known to flock for secret, secluded getaways. It is also a top Caribbean destination for honeymoons.

A French-speaking island, St. Barths combines European sophistication with an easy-going, laid-back Caribbean lifestyle.  Its history is intricate and fascinating. The name of its capital city, Gustavia, is a testament to the fact that the island came under Swedish rule for a brief time after the Napoleonic Wars.

The Best Time To Enjoy Luxury Villa Rentals In St. Barths

The best time to visit St. Barths weather-wise is during the winter, which corresponds to the dry season. However, April to June is the best time to go if you consider both crowds and weather. September, October, and November are considered the tourist low season, but they also experience much more rain. Average temperatures range from the 70s to the 90s (F).



Expert Tips:

St. Barths is often called the “French Riviera” of the Caribbean for good reason: it’s replete with spectacular secluded beaches, high-end shopping, fine dining, and mega yachts.

With an area of only 9.7 square miles, St. Barthelemy may seem like a tiny island, but don’t that fool you. There are plenty of activities to keep you occupied during your vacation. Besides soaking up the sun on one of the breathtaking beaches, you can engage in water sports, hike to the top of Fort Karl, or spend a relaxing day in a spa.

To get to St. Barths, take 10 to 15-minute flight from St. Martin, buy a ticket for a high-speed ferry, or charter a boat. You can also fly to St. Barths from St. Thomas, Guadeloupe, or San Juan, Puerto Rico. While on the island, it’s helpful to rent a 4-wheel or AWD vehicle because they handle the hilly terrain with ease.
