Spirited. Magical. Indulgent… whatever you want to call it, St. Barths is one incredible Rock. Sure, it may not be easy to get to, but this island has quite the mystical air to it. Once you visit, you may not be able to shake the sand from your shoes. Like Nantucket, it reminds me of a place that enraptures your entire being and after a visit, you’re never the same. So here, in our latest blACKbook vaca, we have A Dozen Do’s For St. Barths.
1. DO… GET THERE BY TRADEWIND AIR
2. DO… RENT A CAR.
3. DO… STAY IN A VILLA
While there are several spectacular ways to relax in luxury on St. Barth’s, the last two times we’ve gone we’ve stayed in Villas… the perfect way to share a space and add some privacy with up to six couples! There are tons of gorgeous places to rent and our friend, Doug Foregger, founder and owner of Country Village Rentals St. Barth’s and Director of WIMCO International Real Estate, helped us figure out the best places to stay + play on the island. (He should know as he’s been dividing his time between St. Barths and Nantucket over the past 24 years!)
Further, if you’ve been thinking that St. Barths is your next vacation destination, our friend Mai Norton knows the right vacation rental for you – as she has spent this past winter personally viewing over 100 great estates on St. Barths and has a fabulous list for those looking at the chicest properties available for rent on the island!
