  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice with a beautiful view, nice landscaping, and the constant sound of waves crashing on the fringing reef below. My kids loved the pool which is good sized. The owner Catherine Rennie, and the manager Alain Bonnaud were very attentive and pleasant. I very much enjoyed our stay. There is also a very good restaurant close to the house called Les Freres de la Cote.

Beautiful island, perfect home for relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this house! It is comfortable, high quality, and has everything you need to enjoy yourself, without being too formal. It was extremely helpful to have both rum punch and simple breakfast fixings available to us when we arrived late at night. The pool is gorgeous and feels great anytime of day. The view is really astounding - more like being on a boat in terms of the proximity to the waves and the ocean than any beach house I've ever stayed in. On a clear day you can see several nearby islands. We ate every meal outside, enjoying it. As is true with most of Guadeloupe, area beaches are smallish (but beautiful!) and somewhat scattered so you likely will want to drive to the really nice ones. Those accessible on foot are more rocks than sand and not the clear calm turquoise water you'll find at the more popular spots. Saint Francois is far from Basse Terre, but there is so much going on there and in Sainte Anne and Gosier, you can certainly fill your days in the immediate area. I was surprised how few bugs we encountered given the tropical climate. We appreciated having AC in our bedrooms at night but did not need it otherwise. We were 2 couples so we had plenty of room; larger groups should take note that the 3rd largest bedroom is accessed either through the 2nd master bed & shared bath or via the veranda door, so is best suited to children of a family. The 4th bedroom that doesn't face the ocean is smaller but perfectly fine and has its own bathroom. Also you may need to buy paper towels if you like those or refill the TP. Other appreciated features: quiet neighborhood, nice outdoor grill, downstairs bathroom, wifi, house phone, kids' beach gear, cooler. Would've been even more excellent to have beach chairs or mats available, and snorkel equipment. Special note: Alain is a very warm and helpful host. He has gone above and beyond to return something to us that we left behind. Makes this house even better!

such a wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfectly dreamy. We were two families with 4 kids, and the house afforded us plenty of space. The pool was a huge hit, and the view was amazing. The location really worked out perfectly for us--there were lots of beaches nearby, and when we ventured to the botanical gardens at the other side of the island, the drive was beautiful. We loved this house, and really cannot wait to return.

Fabulous property and wonderful generous caretaker Alain.

  • 5 of 5

This 4 bedroom 4 bathroom home is perfect for a family. We were parents with three 20 something children. Everyone had enough space to relax. Kitchen is very well equipped

and we ate most meals on our patio. The caretaker was always available for questions and helped us plan a few day trips. We went to different beaches near our home. There are three restaurants on the main road near our complex which were good. Highly recommend this property. French speakers are essential as part of your group. We would book this home again.

Top sejour

  • 5 of 5

Après 4 jours à Deshaies nous debarquons ds cette superbe villa. Très bon accueil d'Alain (chargé par les proprios d'accueillir les vacanciers) qui à été à l'écoute tt au long du séjour. Vue splendide sur la mer (il faut s'habituer au bruit des vagues)

Piscine au top, pas de vis a vis et une maison très spacieuse très bien équipée.

St François est très sympa et typique

Bref un séjour qui passa trop vite... Nous relouerions cette villa sans hésiter !!!!

Seul micro bemol, prendre la voiture pour trouver 1 plage (5 min seulement) car la plage devant la maison est difficilement praticable..... Mais la je chipote ; )

Owner's Response: Nous sommes toujours très flattés par les commentaires des vacanciers, j’ai un grand plaisir de partager ma superbe villa et surtout la vue époustouflante sur la mer des caraïbes. Les vacanciers sont jamais déçus de l’accueil et la bienvenue qui leurs sont réservés par Cécile et Alain. Ma villa participe toujours à la qualité du séjour des vacanciers.
