My husband and I, along with another couple stayed at the Oyster Pearl for 11 nights in late August and what can I say, it really was the best vacation that I have had in many years. We have traveled all over the US, Mexico and Caribbean and NEVER have we ever been so relaxed. The Villa is in a secluded location on the island in Dawn Beach, away from the hustle and bustle of the cruise ships but close enough to some great restaurants and shopping as necessary. From the minute we stepped off the plane and were met by Fred, the Villa's caretaker, to the time we arrived at this beautiful location, we knew it was going to be a fabulous vacation. The Villa along is absolutely gorgeous. The pictures are nice, but really, you just have to open that front door and see the view of the ocean to experience it. The furnishings are well appointed and very comfortable and the kitchen has everything that you have at home (and I am not exxagerating). All of the bedrooms and bathrooms are beautiful and fully equipped with hair dryers and straighteners. But the real gem of the home is the outdoor living space. From the teak dining table to the super-comfortable couch, it was wonderful. The views of St. Barths from the luxurious loungers are priceless. There is also a gas grill for your use as well. I took seven dresses for dinners out and only used two as we spent our whole trip eating in, having a private chef cook and enjoying the best vacation villa we have ever rented. It also needs to be noted that the owner of the villa is very responsive to EVERY question, concern and need that your group may have. David was wonderful and we can't wait to rent next year.
