The focal point of the property is a large and truly spectacular, two-tiered, infinity edge pool bordered with a generously sized sun deck - all overlooking a breathtaking 180 degree view of St. Jean Baie. Lush tropical gardens with a lily pond and a fountain enhance the back of the villa and provide a setting for an ajoupa. This Balinese style gazebo is a wonderful niche to relax and watch the flat screen TV, but the view that magnificently frames the lily pond, the pool - and the sea, would be stiff competition for anything on the screen! Villa Au Soleil is one of the finest homes in St. Barth.

Affordable St. Barts?

"Affordable" and "St. Barts" are not two words that you say in one sentence too often - but the NY Times has some ideas:

St. Barts on the cheap? Easy. Just attach yourself to Jay-Z's entourage, score an invitation aboard a megayacht, and sip Champagne all night in the V.V.I.P. section at Nikki Beach. If that fails, a seven-room villa at the celebrity-filled Carl Gustaf Hotel goes for 48,000 euros a night during the peak season. Luckily, for those who would rather splurge on a lobster dinner, this chic Caribbean Riviera still has a smattering of affordable options - relatively speaking, of course.

The article is full of good tips, and lots of links to check out.

$72,278 PER WEEK!

From the NY POST:

"What could possibly carry that kind of soul-sucking price tag? Ahhhh, the two new luxury villas - a k a Eden Rock Estates - coming soon to St. Barts' Eden Rock Hotel. Now it's all starting to make sense. Villa Nina, the first of the two, opens in early November. So, just pretend to be Leona's dog for a minute and take booking it seriously: that price (which bumps up to $91,568 in high season, and $110,838 over the holidays) includes an in-room art gallery, Jacuzzi, a dedicated butler, access to a Mini Cooper, and a pool overlooking the beautiful sands of St. Jean beach. Arf, arf!"

Demand for Rental Villas on St. Barts Grows - Wimco Increases Its Inventory of Exclusive Homes

NEWPORT, RI, June 2007 - To meet a growing demand for villas on St. Barts, Wimco, the leading marketer of exclusive and sophisticated villa rentals in sun-splashed places, has added five villas to its available-only-through Wimco inventory.

"These new additions to our exclusive portfolio allow us to meet the growing demand for villa vacations on St Barts. The sophistication and amenities in these villas makes them very attractive to today's discerning traveler," says Stiles Bennet, Wimco's Director of Marketing.

For the upcoming season, Wimco represents 265 St. Barts villas, most of them on an exclusive basis Wimco's villas range from 1 bedroom retreats starting at $3,000/week in peak season to six bedroom compounds costing up to $40,000 a week in peak season.

Demand for St. Barts villa rentals is up 30% percent over this time last year. Wimco attributes this to the fact that this eight-square-mile island is increasingly popular because of its quaint French culture, family-friendly environment, uncrowded beaches, fine cuisine and world class shopping.

"This increased demand is especially true for the sought-after Holiday and Spring Break seasons," says Bennet, who notes that there are still choice villas available for those two windows. "But they're going fast."

Property Developer Launches Ritzy Waterfront Fund

More high-end development on St. Barts:

"The fund will seek to achieve absolute returns by creating a stream of development projects to be sold on completion. "Some of the investments will be in the development of rural land while others will be renovations or rebuilding existing properties," said Tim de Rosen, the fund's director. Targeted locations include St. Barts, Harbour Island in the Bahamas, St. Tropez, Cap d'Antibes, Cap Ferrat and similar resorts."

You can read the whole thing here. Sounds a bit speculative in nature - "projects to be sold on completion" - to me for the Caribbean market.

Buying a Second Home on St. Barts

07stbarts_span.jpg

New article in the NY Times:

"The road that winds around St. Barthélemy offers some of the most spectacular vistas in the Caribbean as it curves up and down steep hills, snakes along windswept beaches and crosses coconut groves and salt marshes.

Too often, though, as the road bobs and weaves through the tiny island, the landscape is pocked with construction sites - building machinery, like colossal historic beasts, devouring the vegetation.

And on the decks of multimillion-euro villas, which rent for $5,000 to $50,000 a week during high season, jetsetters down their Negronis and cover their ears to muffle the sound of jackhammers."

There is more and it is actually quite good - there are several quotes from people on St. Barts and their take on the development of the island.
