First and foremost, Rachel was a wonderful host! Due to unforeseen delays we were about two hours late in meeting Rachel at the unit to pick up keys and receive an introduction (and we had no way of contacting Rachel to let her know this) but she was graciously still waiting for us when we finally did arrive at La Plantation. Rachel was extraordinarily kind and easy to work with both leading up to and during our entire stay. She always answered questions quickly and she even modified the number of days that we would be staying at the last minute. The apartment itself was also perfect! Calling it a studio doesn't really do it justice- yes, the main room is also the bedroom but there is a HUGE covered balcony that wraps around the apartment and provides a ton of extra space and includes a 4-5 person table, and couch with still loads of extra room to spare- a simply beautiful and incredibly relaxing place to enjoy your morning coffee! The kitchen area is small but nicely separated from the main area, the bathroom is spacious (though bring your own hairdryer if that's important to you, the one on the wall appears to be from the 1970s and merely wafts slightly-warmed-air in your general direction... and then overheats. Or even better, forget the hairdryer completely and embrace the "beachy look!"). The architecture of the building is really charming, lots of wrought iron. We didn't spend much time at the pool or on the tennis court (you shouldn't either, the island is way too fun to explore to sit at the pool!!), the chairs and tennis net looked a little run down but the pool was always really clean and inviting! Rachel also had a welcome basket of fresh fruit, local rum and coffe/tea so we were well set for breakfast the next day and a quick "yay we're on vacation" toast on the veranda on the night of our arrival! The apartment is really well situated, about a 3 minute drive to St. Francois center (I would recommend a car to get around Guadeloupe in general). You won't go wrong staying here.
