Villa Gustavia Hill, also known as WV GUS, is a 1-bedroom villa located in Gustavia within a short walk of the beach and shopping. This modern house looks out to the Caribbean, and is completely quiet despite being near the harbor.
The villa is decorated in warm colors, rich woods, antique furniture, and objects from around the world. In the dining room, a large teak table from India can seat up to 8 guests, while the well-equipped kitchen is accented with wood and stainless steel. A small, more private room serves as an office and library, as well as a comfortable space for listening to music or watching TV.
The bedroom is decorated in delicate shades of gray and white, which are offset by the English mahogany furniture. The bedroom has a king-size bed, en suite bathroom with spacious shower, and looks out onto the patio.
With hammock and palm trees caressed by the trade winds, the patio is an ideal place for a siesta or stargazing. From the large terrace on the ocean side, one can see all the surrounding islands, spectacular sunsets, and observe sailing boats in the harbor.
An outside staircase gives direct access to a second terrace, which directly hangs over the water. Down from the lower terrace is a plunge pool. The house also has WiFi and high-speed Internet, a home cinema with Apple TV, and French satellite TV.
Gustavia Hill comes with house cleaning services six days a week, except on holidays. This villa does not permit children or pets. There is a friendly cat on the premises. Included in your rental are pre-travel concierge services including air booking, car rental booking and destination activity planning. During your vacation you will have access to on-island concierge services through our local office.
Villa WV GUS, also referred to as Gustavia Hill, is a charming one bedroom villa combining the proportions of a small traditional St. Barts villa with a very contemporary look and feel. Situated on ocean side part of Gustavia called "La Pointe," the house looks out on the Caribbean, and has the double advantage of being completely quiet, yet near the harbor with its lively activities: shops, restaurants, and the spectacle of the most beautiful yachts in the world.
Decorated in warm colors, rich woods, antique furniture and objects brought back from the owner's travels, the rooms give a feeling of calm and serenity. In the dining room, a large teak table from India can seat up to eight. The fully-equipped kitchen is accented with wood and stainless-steel.

The bathroom with its spacious shower looks out on the patio. The bedroom is decorated in delicate shades of gray and white offset by the English mahogany furniture. It looks out on the patio and has a quiet and peaceful feeling.
The patio, with its hammock and palm trees caressed by the trade winds, is the ideal place for a siesta or for stargazing. From the large terrace on the ocean side one can see all the surrounding islands: St. Martin, Saba, Statia and St. Kitts. From here one can watch spectacular sunsets, and observe the sailing boats gently come back to harbor. An outside staircase gives direct access to a second terrace which directly overhangs the water. That is the place for sunbathing between the sky and the blue-green sea. Here one feels naturally drawn to meditation. A plunge pool is suspended in the rocks down from the lower terrace via 3 steps, and there is a bench to sit in the water and enjoy the view.
The soul of the house is its little cat. "Ti Gris," who arrived on the premises the first day that work started on the villa. He is gentle, affectionate and independent. He usually sleeps in the daytime, hunts at night, and appreciates being petted from time to time.
