We stayed at the villa in February, 2013, and had a wonderful week. There were three couples, and we stayed in the three upstairs bedrooms. There is a fourth bedroom on a lower level that we did not use. All bedrooms had nice bathrooms, mosquito netting on the beds (although bugs were not a problem), and beds were comfortable. There is a maid that comes daily and can do laundry if needed. The photos in the listing accurately reflect the overall appearance of the villa. The outdoor spaces are beautiful, the pool/fountain are perfect, the kitchen is adequately appointed and there is an outdoor grill. It is a very comfortable villa, not ultramodern, but cozy in an island setting, and private. We had no safety concerns.
The best part of the villa is it's location. It has a beautiful view overlooking St Jean bay, Eden Rock resort, and the airport. (You cannot hear the planes but can watch them land and takeoff). You can walk down the hill to St Jean restaurants, shopping etc. Parking can be difficult, so this is especially helpful. After driving to other parts of the island, I was very hapy to be in St Jean.
The owners met us at the ferry dock, helped arrange our rental car, and transport luggage. They live on the island and are easily accesible. There was a nice introduction to the villa on arrival, and a binder describing contact numbers, wi-fi connections, etc. They also helped us with our departure. The villa is fairly priced, and wiring money in advance was not a problem.
I have traveled to a number of Carribean islands and stayed in villas. This experience was outstanding, and I would have no trouble returning or recommending to friends. St Barth is a fabulous island getaway.
