About the property

The Villa is a 2 BR, A/C (split system very quiet). The master bedroom is 16x20 with cathedral ceiling, natural cypress planking and white rafters. All floors throughout are Saltillo red tiles.The master garden bath is spacious with two shower heads and unique artistic plumbing. The sink is custom made with terra cotta bowls and stone surrounds, a faucet that I designed with the roundness of the bowl and rock inlays. There is a rock wall with built-in seat for lounging, a garden, a privacy wall with an antique stained glass window from a church in the south of France. Living area is open and airy, with antiques collected from the Caribbean over the years of island hopping. Years of work as a professional chef, aided in the design kitchen, simple and easy, marble counters and custom-made cast sink with service bar, and all the equipment needed for a special night. Dining is on the Terrace overlooking the gorgeous view and pool.

Zero-edged pool makes a wonderful feature, water is same level as the floor, creating a bubbling fountain effect. Decks on the sides of the pool, barbeque, chaises, hammock complete the setting for a relaxing day.

The living and dining is open air under large veranda roofs and furnished with antiques, we have shutters available should you encounter some rains. We have lived in the Caribbean all our lives and have put that experience into the Villa.

About Byron Newland

My wife April and her fishing buddies, in Anegada, BVI.

We have lived in Virgin Islands all our lives and know what works.

Byron Newland purchased this villa in 1998

Why Byron Newland chose Anse des Lézards

Avril is very unique and Creole style living. I know you will love it being one with nature. Watch out for the turtles in the bathroom as they love to eat the Orchid flowers when they drop..

What makes this villa unique

Pool is right there and you can just hang out inside or out, plenty of breeze and fully equipped for you.

Wow what a unique villa !

  • 5 of 5

Love the villa, the pool is right there and the design is very open and lush.

The bedrooms are very cool and quiet and the bathrooms are very exotic. The orchids were in bloom when we were there and taking a shower under the moonlight was awesome...

The kids loved the pool and the easy walk down to the beach of Anse des Cays. The villa is fully equipped including beach stuffs so we didn't have to bring anything except our clothes.

I have stayed at other villas, but this one is special and very romantic..... and a wonderful value. Email the owner for a special rate , he is very understanding of the financial situation.. Also if you are lucky and the owner is on island, he brought us some fresh mahi mahi for our dinner ! Also check out the guest book, they had a celebrity guest named Pamela

Wonderful Stay at Villa Avril

  • 5 of 5

Villa Avril will not disappoint. It is clean, well equipped and beautifully situated with water views. The villa has an "open air" living, dining and kitchen space that leads directly to the pool and patio. However, the two bdrms are secured and air conditioned. Each bdrm has a bathroom which are "open air" although enclosed for privacy. It is truly a unique and memorable place to stay. The owner was extremely helpful, warm and friendly. We stayed with our 2 children, ages 6 and 9. They loved the villa and the heated pool. The villa also comes with beach chairs, umbrella and cooler as well as snorkeling gear. We had a wonderful vacation and cannot wait to return to St. Barths.

Lovely Villa and Perfect Setting

  • 5 of 5

I can't thank Byron enough for sharing Villa Avril. Every glowing review of the villa that I read before booking was right on the mark. The villa blended West Indian charm with modern amenities. Great ocean breezes and sound of gentle surf. Villa has a most convenient location with a market/bakery/coffee shop right around the corner. Ten minutes to Gustavia or St. Jean. Anyone looking for a beautiful, centralized location would be well served by the delights of Villa Avril.

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had an absolutely lovely time at Villa Avril! We absolutely loved the open floor plan and breathtaking views. Location was great and we were able to get to things pretty easily. In addition, the place was immaculate and Byron could not have been more accommodating and helpful. Would definitely come back!

Amazing Villa and Location!!

  • 5 of 5

Byron was there to meet us and show us the property. It is an easy drive from the airport and close to all the attractions. What a fantastic villa that has been frequented by some cool guests! Hello Pamela and Bono. The villa has all you need, a relaxing pool and great view. The bedrooms are enclosed and really cold. The bathrooms are open air and an awesome feature. We enjoyed relaxing on the deck, cooking awesome breakfasts and sipping champagne while the sun went down. Everything was clean and open air. We highly recommend contacting Byron and staying at AVRIL!

Car: necessary

Located between Anse des Cayes and Anse des Lezards, 100 yards from the yards from the waters edge, Villa Avril has the sounds of the surf all the time. Walking to the white sand beach of Anse des Cayes takes about 3 mins down a gentle hill, my children walk there all the time when we are on the island. The neighborhood is very calm and quiet, the road dead-ends at Anse des Lezards so there is no thru traffic. You can walk to the beach in Anse des Cayes and go swimming or go to Manapany Hotel for some food and drinks. There is a nice little grocery in the neighborhood, also a Salon Mixte, beauty shop, and three local restaurants Chez Yvon, Chez Ginette, and New Born, which specializes in fresh seafoods. Gustavia is 5 minute drive, St.Jean Bay is 4 minutes.
