Wonderful Home, with 5 * Hotel a plus.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Finestere is a wonderful place to stay on St Barth. The home is very comfortable with all the necessary stuff. We liked the well stock kitchen as we like to cook most meals. The service from Richard and Fi was just perfect, these are 2 lovely people and we enjoyed visiting each day. Very important is the ability to use the 5 star hotel across the path. Being able to get a better WiFi, go for a quick swim or lounge at the beach is a very special treat. Larry is a very hands on manager, who is always there for you by way of email. We highly recommend this Villa! Stephen and Beata Battalia

Comfortable and well located villa, steps from the beach.

  • 4 of 5

Villa Finistere is a very pleasant villa located on the seaside road right behind Flamands beach.. It is less than a 1 block walk to the beach public access. A lease was provided on booking and a signed copy was returned to me after payment.

The main house consists of a raised single level house, one stairway up from ground. There is a bedroom with queen bed, 1 bathroom, living room, dining room and well appointed kitchen. It has all modern conveniences: microwave, a gas, manual light oven and burners, dishwasher and refrigerator. The refrigerator was stocked on arrival with a very nice welcome assortment of food and drinks. There are 3 zone air conditioners which are very much up to the task of air conditioning in the Caribbean. There is a small pool and very nice deck and outdoor area. There is Puerto Rican Direct satellite flat screen TV with HBO, an audio system, and fairly reliable but slow wireless internet which couldn’t be used much further than the living or dining room. There is a guest house next to the pool. On the ground floor is storage, utility rooms, and the outdoor shower for use after the beach. There is housekeeping 6 days out of 7, except for holidays, which was quite good. There is a responsive maintenance person as well (one of the trees had to be trimmed back from the roof as it was making contact). There is a large gated driveway for parking.

The villa is well located but it is very helpful to have a car. There is easy access to all parts of the island. There are multiple restaurants and fancy hotels within easy walking distance.

Next to the property, but not too bothersome as it is screened by some trees, is the parking lot for the Hotel Saint-Barth Isle De France. There was not much activity at night at the parking lot.

Beach equipment was somewhat lacking. No umbrellas, and the chairs were quite low riding. There was some sort of wind blocker which was never used. The boogie board provided was great.

The shower in the bathroom is an odd handheld unit that is very difficult to position if you don’t want to use it as a handheld unit.

There was no guest access for laundry. There were plenty of towels and linen provided for the house. The beach towels could have been a little bigger and more than 1 set should be given at a time.

All in all, a very nice villa and a comfortable stay.

Recommended. I would return.

Owner's Response: Villa Finistere offers laundry amenities to its guests. Villa Finistere's housekeeper is in charge of the laundryroom. Guests simply have to ask that their laundry be done. Villa Finistere's DirecTV service offers programming from all USA networks, including HBO, the news and sports cable channels. Villa Finistere's two en suite baths offer mahogany framed Jacuzzi tubs with European shower fixtures of the finest manufacture. The management of Villa Finistere offers its appreciation and thanks to its loyal guests as Villa Finistere begins its 15th year in St. Barthelemy's incomparable Flamands Beach. Villa Finistere is steps from wide and beautiful Flamands Beach, and its neighbor The Five-Star Hotel St Barth Isle de France. The Isle de France's amenities, including its Natura Bisse Spa and Case de L'lisle Restaurant, are open to Villa Finistere guests. Over the last 20 years Flamands Beach has evolved from a relatively obscure hamlet and dazzling beach to one of the most sought after vacation destinations in the Western Hemisphere.

Villa Finistere is a Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have visited this wonderful villa at least once a year for the last 14 years. We keep coming back for many reasons but mostly because it feels like our private home in paradise!

Villa Finistere's centrality is very convenient to the airport and the major towns of Gustavia and St. Jean, where all the shops and restaurants are located.

Secondly, across from Villa Finistere is the spectacular Flamands beach where the newly renovated Five-Star Hotel Isle de France is located.

We open an account as soon as we arrive so we can partake in all the festivities and activities that are featured at the Hotel Isle de France.

We enjoy dinner at the hotel's Restaurant "La case de l'Isle" before returning to a very relaxing Villa Finistere, which is only 20-30 feet across the street from the hotel.

During the day we relax on the beach and enjoy a delicious lunch with our feet in the sand and take long walks on Flamands beach.

The vibe is low key and the locals are extremely friendly. They speak English but knowing a few words in french is always appreciated.

In the afternoon we love to read our books on the Villa Finistere's spacious veranda or play Scrabble next to the villa pool.

There is an outside shower as well as a jacuzzi tub in both Finistere bedrooms.

We have stayed at other St. Bart villas and hotels in the past but Villa Finistere surely feels like home for us.

We LOVED this charming villa. The location is excellent. Flamands Beach is perfect and a very short walk from the villa. It was wonderful to be so close to the amazing hotel Isle de France! We were able to set up an account there for the fitness room, spa services and the restaurant. Everything was great! We will be back!
