Marlene, the owner, went above and beyond to help us have an enjoyable stay. She sent us a 14-page package of information, with tips and recommendations, on places to eat and things to see which really added so much to our vacation. We communicated several times before actually arriving at the villa.
The pool and grounds were well cared for and everyone we met was very friendly.
We enjoyed using the pool very much and it was right outside our villa.
We enjoyed eating breakfast and several dinners out on the deck which had a beautiful view of the bay and nearby islands. The kitchen was well-equipped and we used the BBQ often. The whole house was clean and very nicely decorated.
There are 2 bathrooms on the main floor so the people that slept upstairs in the second bedroom had to come downstairs at night to use the bathroom. (That is the way the whole complex was built).
We were happy to have wifi right in the Villa.
Guana Bay was beautiful to look at and we walked along the beach but we did not go swimming because we were warned by many people that there was an "undertow" and several people have drowned there. But there were many other beaches that we were able to drive to and go swimming.
The stars were great to view at night. I know why they named it Villa Star!
We did see some spectacular sunrises too.
Marcella, the housekeeper, did an excellent job. She greeted us when we first arrived and showed us all around the Villa. She came in everyday to clean, make the beds, and run the dishwasher. (We were not supposed to run the dishwasher because it was "temperamental").
There was no washer or dryer that we could use, but we could pay $20 a load to have the housekeeper do it for us.
We did have a problem with lots of ants in the kitchen daily even though we put food away in the refrigerator and loaded our used dishes into the dishwasher. We sprayed Raid on the floor and bleach on the countertops to kill them . Marcella cleaned up the dead ants everyday. (I think this is a common problem there at certain times of the year just because it is an island and right near the water).
All in all we had a delightful vacation!
Thank you Marlene for a wonderful holiday adventure. The Villa Star was the perfect size for our group of three. The house had everything we needed. Marlene was quick to respond from the initial reservation till after the vacation. The house had fantastic views of the ocean and was also steps away from a private beach that probably has the best waves on the island. It is centrally located for easy access to the entire island. While we did not spend much time at the villa the complex had a nice pool also with great views and many nice neighbors. Look forward to returning as there is so much to do one can't possibly do it in one go!
We really loved our stay at the villa! It was perfect for us and our children. We really liked the cozyness and at the same time the luxury and convenience of the villa and the complex with the nice pool for our children. Marcella was really helpfull. The view on the ocean and St. Barth is beautifull. Thanks for all the tips, we really explored the island with its many beaches, nice places and restaurants. We would definitely love to come back one day.
We rented Villa Star for 3 weeks and couldn't have asked for more luxury or relaxation. The Villa was immaculate and the items provided in the unit were exactly what we used. We enjoyed being just steps to the sea and near the pool as well. The suggestions you made for dining and excursions were spot on and we met great people along the way. We didn't have any issues other than our plane was delayed upon departure... but other than that, it was 3 weeks of BLISS! How soon can we book again? Am messaging now to check availability before year end. Would love to visit over the holidays!
Marlene and Al's Villa Star was exactly what we needed- the comfort and luxury of the villa, the proximity to the beach, we lacked for nothing! We loved being so close to the ocean and feel the ocean breezes in the villa. Your choice of decor was perfect for our home away from home. We were so comfortable in the villa. We did call your staff as needed and they were so attentive and meet all our requests. We didn't want to leave! We could have used one week solid just to enjoy the villa and another to venture out during the day... we did however venture out and visit several of the restaurants and places of interest that you suggested in the welcome packet you sent us prior to our trip. A+ holiday for us! We hope to get back before year end!
We rented this property for 6 weeks in January 2015.
I must comment that I seldom review accommodations or restaurants as I assume the owner has done their best (if I am not happy I don't have to come back). However after discussing our experience with other guests at Guana Bay and with friends on our return home, I have been encouraged to say some things about this rental.
While our stay was satisfactory over all there were several significant deficiencies (some were corrected once we had been there a couple of weeks) and the rest were as follows:
1. We had virtually no cold water for the entire 6 weeks.Hot showers on sunburn are not pleasant! The issue was raised with the owner's representative regularly and nothing got corrected.
2. There is an abundance of mosquitoes in the area especially on days when there was little or no breeze. There are no screens on the two large sliding patio doors....so enjoying the breezes promoted is not an option. We have lived in the tropics and are no strangers to mosquitoes (but you must take precautions as Dengue disease was mentioned in all health advisories).
3. There is supposed to be a safe in the unit. The one there did not work and had apparently been out of order for some time. It never got repaired or replaced even though an identical unit of identical dimensions was available locally.
I would caution any prospective guests to verify that these deficiencies have been corrected...more importantly check that the rate you pay (particularly on long term stays) is fair.
This property may have seen better days as past guests seem to have had more satisfactory experiences
Art galleries, Massages on beach or in spa, Beauty salon, Manicure, Pedicure minutes from all of these services...also massage in the villa available! Minutes from downtown shopping and casinos and some of the finest restaurants ever! So many a must!!
