Best Unobstructed Views Anywhere in St. Barts!

  • 5 of 5

Luxury, yes, magnificent yes!, Private, yes,yes,yes- in a gated community. Really, after staying here, there is no place else to stay. Centrally located, unparalleled views, beautifully furnished, sliding glass doors letting the outside in everywhere. Unobstructed views from every window. You'll love the view as soon as you pull up and park your car. Steps light up as you walk down to your villa, the landscaping is breathtaking, from the covered couches outside the huge kitchen, equipped with everything down to the smallest detail, a pool larger than most hotels have, to the jacuzzi outside your bedroom. The 2nd bedroom has its own pool, in a lighted grotto type area, literally steps outside the bedroom, tvs in two rooms, equipped with usa chargers, and the wifi's really fast-and the tv has american stations. Every detail was covered, when we arrived we were met like royalty and the rental car was ready. Our bags were carried to the car, and so began our fairytale. There is a magnificent breeze in this location, seating everywhere-it is really the lap of luxury, and an additional outside shower. Dont stay here unless you never want to rent a different villa, because you will leave here spoiled for life. Seriously, there are hotels smaller than this villa on st.barts. Everywhere you go, when you mention you are staying at Villa Donato, there is a moment of silence as everyone's eyes light up. Even the staff in the stores were in awe of where we were staying. The only thing I would add is an expresso maker, but The bakery is so close, you are there and back in less than five minutes every morning, also if you wanted maid service to buy breakfast, or do a wash for you, that can be easily arranged also. I was alittle disappointed that there was only water for us in the frig and not champagne, but after staying there for a few days, I wanted to leave champagne for the owner and the staff because our stay was more than top notch, we were treated like rock stars! Note, this is not an inexpensive villa, but it worth every penny and so much more-This is the best experience we have ever had in st.barts, and that's saying plenty!

The Perfect Winter Break

  • 5 of 5

Our family and a friend spent a glorious week at Villa Donato. Everything exceeded our expectations and we loved every minute. Michael and his staff were wonderful from our first inquiry to our departure. It was such a treat to be greeted at the airport by Guillaume who helped us with the rental car company and the maid staff could not have been more pleasant and professional. If we had a question or a need, they were available. The house was fantastic and perfect for our needs. We loved: the views, the privacy, the pool, the wonderful kitchen, the bread, the hikes out of Columbier and Flamands to get to Governour Beach, looking for turtles, the trail up above the house to the look-out decks, our lunch at Langouste, the proximity of the supermarket (a daily adventure), buying fresh fish at the Gustavia fish market, exploring all of the beaches, the challenge of driving on the island, watching rain storms on the horizon, and the precision of the planes landing at the airport. We plan to return.

Stayed at Villa Donato and was blown away at the views, the property, professionalism of the manager etc. Stayed for a week and after my week I will be back to St. Barth and will only stay here. It has the best views and close to all the spots you want to be. Definitely get a rental car if on the island and crack open a beer and watch the sunset next to the pool here.

Must be on your life "bucket list"

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from Villa Donato and it is just as Michael had communicated it would be. It is a very, very, very special place. You couldn't ask for a better experience. Beautiful home with amazing views all day long. The location is perfect as you get the breezes all day long which allows you to keep all doors and windows open with no bug issues. Very private location yet near everything. We were there with our three children age 25, 21, and 15 and everyone had a great time. Some things you must not miss is the lobster at La Langouste by the far the best we had and their home made rum was delicious. Had a great time at this beach/restaurant location, totally low key. The croissants from the local bakery melt in your mouth. The beach near the house is a must do, we rented a boat to get there which was a thrill in and of itself with the waves! Nikki Beach for lunch and paddle boarding was also a blast. Can't say enough about this villa, don't bother with any other house as this has it all a perfect 10 in our book. Had a blast with the turtles that frequented in and around the property, the birds, the frogs, and lizards. Amazing place, very hard to get back to reality!

Amazing Villa!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful villa for a week (and would have stayed longer but it was booked)! We absolutely loved the villa and the view was amazing! It is a great location on the island and the villa is very private. The pool and all of the amenities were outstanding. We can't wait to go back and hopefully stay at this villa again!
