We were two families fleeing from a cold, long winter in the states and were fortunate to find this beautiful home. Villa Oyster Pearl easily accommodated our crew consisting of 4 adults and 5 teenagers. This is a terrific location a short hike downhill to Dawn Beach and just a few hundred yards from the French side of the island. Sweeping views of the Atlantic with St. Barts on the horizon. The home was well appointed, tastefully decorated, comfortable bedrooms, and had all of the amenities that we needed - from cooking Utensils, very capable internet, water equipment, and the list goes on. The Villa had everything you would have in your home. The location was a great launching point to explore the island - I highly suggest getting a car and going to the various towns and wonderful beaches throughout the island. Caution: driving is not for the faint of heart but you will quickly get used to it. A high speed ferry to St. Barts is right down the street, along with a good array of restaurants and small French convenience stores. Some things we really enjoyed: spending a day in St. Bart which is a stunning island also, try beaches on the West side of St. Maraan if it is windy on the east side, get a car and explore, have dinner in Grand Case where they have some excellent dining, and break the week up by going to Lotterie Farm which is inland park (splurge and get a Cabana). David and his team also get five stars as very accommodating hosts. They maintained our privacy\space but were quick to help if we had any questions or needed any advice. We were very appreciated of David responding to our many, many questions so thoroughly and quickly in preparation for our trip. Cheers!
