About Patrice Piquard

We are a couple of journalists living in Paris, and this is our small home away from home. We come to St Barth two or three times a year in order to rest, scuba dive and meet our friends on the island.

Patrice Piquard purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Patrice Piquard chose St Barthelemy

For us, Saint Barth is the closest place from paradise.

What makes this apartment unique

We do love our apartment which is like a small penthouse located at the top of the condo. The view is just incredible, and you see it even when lying on the bed. The location, far from the main road, but on a 3 minutes drive from the shops and restaurants of Gustavia or from St Jean and Flamand beaches, is very convenient. We also are pleased with the way we furnished and decorated the flat in order to make it a relaxing place. Some of our customers like it too, and they come back year after year.

Very clean, nicely appointed, and a great location

  • 4 of 5

This property is ideal for 2 people. Very clean and nicely appointed. It is in a great location---great views of the ocean, centrally located, close to St. Jean and Gustavia. It is a great find. The only problem we had was the water pressure. There were days that the water dribbled out of the facets. Other than that, a great find! Frederick T. Martens

Owner's Response: If water pressure was sometimes weak during your stay, it had nothing to do with the flat or the property. It can happen that work on the pipes of the Water Network affects the pressure for a few hours. The same is valid for the WiFi network (cut sometimes for an hour or two), and even for electricity in case of a storm. Although it is the best managed island in the West Indies, St Barth does not have infrastructures on par with those of the big cities in Europe or the US.

Wonderful view, comfortable place, everything you need

  • 5 of 5

I received a helpful set of instructions as soon as I booked. Upon arrival at the airport, I was greeted by the property's helpful and cheerful manager, who led me to the villa and showed me around. The view from this apartment is beautiful and the location is convenient to all of the places you would want to go on this lovely island. The description of the property is incorrect in two ways: there is air conditioning in the main room and it is very comfortable. Also there is Wi-Fi which worked very well. For those who might be concerned about mosquitoes I can say that I never saw a single one and never was bitten. I recommend a car rental. But if you aren't used to island driving you might find the traffic to be a little bit aggressive. Anyway, I highly recommend this studio and I am definitely going to return.

Divine, sophisticated, convenient..:-)

  • 5 of 5

Ultra private patio, amazing view, classy sophisticated decor. There is a soulful CD, DVD and book collection. This is one of the best geographical spots on the island...almost zero favorite snorkeling on the other side of the island had consistent near gale force winds all day, every day...but not here..:-) The maid service is thorough and non intrusive. The property manager is professional, warm and greeted us at the boat dock and bought us to the home...actually came back the next morning to take us to the rental car agency...MUST get a car on this island. I can't wait to come back...

Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Patrice was very helpful and the apartment was a perfect fit for us. We have been to St. Barth's many times in the past, and this was one of our most enjoyable stays. We loved how close to everything we were, the apartment had everything we needed, including for the beach. I highly recommend this property and will be returning in the future

St Barts Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed here last February. Patrice was fantastic to communicate with prior to arrival, and all was exactly as she detailed. The location is fantastic, the apartment was extremely clean and well organized. The manager was very helpful and reachable at all times for any and all questions. The pictures are as accurate as possible, and gives a very good representation of what you will enjoy for your stay. Our vacation was a complete success, and this property made it easy to enjoy. We look forward to our return!
